Saints Sophomore Spotlight: Daniel Lasco

The New Orleans Saints running backs are primed to be one of the strengths of the 2017 squad. Mark Ingram is coming off of his first career 1,000-yard rushing season, and with the improvement of his receiving skills has established himself as one of the better every down backs in the league. The Saints have a throwback player in the tough-as-nails fullback John Kuhn, who will also provide a short yardage reliability and underrated pass catching skills. The Saints then added future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson, who could provide New Orleans perhaps the best 1-2 punch in the league at running back. In the draft, the Saints drafted Tennessee's explosive all-purpose threat Alvin Kamara

Re: Saints Sophomore Spotlight: Daniel Lasco

He's a one cut runner who turns North and runs hard. I have very high expectations for him. He's a damn fine gunner too.

Murphy is probably gone after he got in Payton's dog house because of Fumbles and just flat out bad decision making. Also, hopefully Cadet can find a job somewhere else. Payton likes him because he values reliability but he's average at best. I just don't see us keeping six running backs because we all know that Kuhn is a lock to make the roster. That depends I guess on how many receivers we keep. We have a couple of backs who can run out of the slot.

Agree, I think Lasco makes it and Murphy heads to the PS. Obviously its way to early to tell right now.

Re: Saints Sophomore Spotlight: Daniel Lasco

Here is my pre season RB list going into camp:

MI
AP
Kuhn
Kamara * (rookie)
Lasco

Bubble status : Murphy &/or Cadet.

Fast forward for a second. Lasco and Kamara could be the "starting RB's" for the Saints 2019 Superbowl winning team .

I mentioned this in a previous thread, and I agree - those two could be the second coming of Deuce & Reggie down the line.

Relax. Don't be alarmed. You might be suffering from FDS or Football Deficiency Syndrome. It's not fatal but 5 consecutive months without football and reading dozens of WillSmith81 posts have slightly altered your brain chemistry.

I'm not a doctor but I do play one on the internet. For your specific case, I would recommend getting plenty of rest, at least 20 hours/day and watching Super Bowl 44 at least once before going to bed.
