And Spiller never put up big yards in the passing game. He had somewhere around 460 yards once and never more than 269 in any other season.
Spiller played in an awful offense that failed to use him properly after that breakout season, and he also missed time with some injuries.

I distinctly remember in that big year he had, that he didn't become fully integrated until the second half of the year. He had a phenomenal second half.

The thought was that he would come here, be used properly, and be a star. But instead they just cut him loose in favor of other guys who have done next to nothing.

And as for you saying they made a mistake, I know you did. And I'm saying that I thought we weren't allowed to say such things. If I say it, you'll come behind me and say "well maybe you should run the team". As if I can't see something obvious with my own eyes. But I see that it's cool as long as you are calling it a mistake.

Re: Game Day: New Orleans Saints @ New York G'nats

Whats the myth about Spiller looking Fanta in preseason. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry. Less than the 4.5ypc Ingram has managed over his career
He had one good 12 yard run take that away and its 9 runs for 30 yards 3.3ypc.

He had 7 receptions for 25 yards
Break it down he had 3 receptions for 24 yards and 4 receptions for 1 yard. Against the Steelers he had 3 reception and averaged -0.3 yards

He was done. He should never have been given a contract to start with. He was injury prone and the league knew it and wete not touching him. So we jumped and offered him a overpayed deal. Much like the Fleener deal. Everyone in the league knew the man drops balls often. Its like they just looked at the box score and though 'oh look at them numbers,imagine him with Drew'

Oh and im still p***ed with the refs for handing the game to yhe Giants. You dont make them calls in the last 2 minutes of a game.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Cadet has been around for a few years now. He has had his chances, and done nothing with them. Don't be ridiculous.

The game shouldn't have been that close in the first place, we recorded 0 points from 3 takeaways, 1 of them at the Giants 25 yard line.

We made the mistake of letting the Refs dictate the end of the game because we didnt put it away when we had the chance.

What's the deal with Stephone Anthony? I swear I didn't see him on the field today.

The difference is that I don't chastise them for making a mistake. Every franchise makes mistakes. In many cases they are unavoidable. I criticize those that put all the blame on the front office as if they could have foreseen mistakes. That is my point.

Wish I knew. We would have some fantastic athleticism out there at LB if Craig Robertson and Stephone Anthony could be on the field together.

He had seven KO returns last year, noi punt returns. They hoped he could produce there but his long was only 26 yards. Cadet averaged 31 yards per return and Murphy averaged 25 on 12 returns.
