Re: Keys to Kamara: How Saints RB's diverse route options help open up offense

Once I heard Payton say he looked like Marshall Faulk from a private session that's all I needed to hear. I knew he was going to be money for us. I made sure to get him on my FF team.

“It’s Drew. It never ceases to amaze,” Kamara said. “He puts balls in places where you have no choice but to catch it. He throws it to your hands.”
Man, this kid and Lattimore - these guys are doing it right. Not only do they oooze talent but they seem like kids who fully understand what they're doing - and they're humble. Ram too. We drafted some pretty awesome and talented PEOPLE in this draft.

Not as good as 1981 but there were more rounds back then and we also passed on Lawrence Taylor so...meh who knows. Still lots of games left but lb for lb this could go down as a strong runner up draft class and I would say top it if we make a playoff run.

Nice read. His route running abilities for an RB is a matchup nightmare for LBs and safeties. Not to mention that he has excellent patience, vision and strength as a runner.

Halfway through the season and I think it’s safe to say I’m perfectly happy not having a 2nd round pick in this next draft for trading up to get Kamara.

He is the toy SP has been looking for and i am chewing on my first crow sandwich now

Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles filled that toy roll for SP.

Cook was drafted and a failed at the toy roll for SP

Now Kamara is taking his turn in the toy role

If Kamara in motion starts to make defense shift, the saints are sitting pretty and SP will be giddy.

The shift effect was the key to SP offense in the early years.

SP is blowing the dust off some old play book
