Lasco or Victor

Has any of you been watching Victor this preseason? This guy has look 10x better that Lasco.... Reminds me of a young PT43. This guy has more speed, moves, balance and well... football talent.

Does anyone think I'm insane when I say.... CUT LASCO....

This is the only quote that Who Dat Nation needs to read. It’s from from Victor’s former coach Rob Ambrose from Towson University.

I’ll probably never have to do this again the rest of my coaching career, but I had to take him out of short-yardage drills because he would hurt our own players.”

Is there really anything more to say? Darius Victor was plucked from the plethora of undrafted rookie free agents after the 2017 NFL Draft. This goldmine could be exactly what the doctor ordered for the New Orleans Saints.

It’s not so much what Victor can do, it’s the spark he can bring every time he gets the ball. Victor runs like he’s on fire. Trust me, as my eyes grew larger and larger in camp Saturday afternoon. The fans saw it too. By the same token, the media was salivating over his efforts as well. Victor is not your usual suspect standing at 5-foot-7 and 225 lbs.

Victor. Lasco has him beat out because of special teams but no way Victor keeps Victor.KC would scoop him up quick.

Re: Lasco or Victor

At this point I would probably have to go Lasco, but I do think Victor may be the better running back. A lot is going to depend on what the Saints plan to do with the FB spot. Keep 1 or 2? Most believe the Saints keep 1 FB, that could open as many as 5 RB spots (5 RB & 1 FB), although they are more likely to go 4 RB spots (4RB & 1 FB).

Re: Lasco or Victor

The two are very different type of runners, so it might depend on what type of a runner they want at the #4 position.

Lasco is a key special teamer and hasn't turned over the ball this preseason, so there's that.

Re: Lasco or Victor

If we had gunners on the team as good as Lasco, this would be a lot closer...

And, we'd need to see our pass protection and pass receptions by Victor out of the backfield which he's hardly shown at this point...

All things considered - Lasco - it's not close...however, I'd love to find a way to keep Victor as I like the type of complimentary back he'd be to this group...

Watching his high light reel shows me that he can block. This little guy is as built like a fire plug. I really like the way he runs.

I wanted Lasco to make it last year because he had such a good preseason. Now Victor is having a good preseason and it's quite the dilemma for me. We need a great special team and Lasco is our best gunner......Coach Payton is going to have some tough cuts.

Re: Lasco or Victor

Coach Payton rarely carries more than 4 RB's. I'd say Lasco with the #4 spot simply because of his special teams versatility.

Victor will either land on the PS or play for another team.

Victor! I can see Victor being our bell cow RB in a couple years after AP and Ingram II are gone

Re: Lasco or Victor

Some of you will think i'm nuts but I'd be ok with trading Ingraham and keeping Victor.
