Deuce's contract extension starts soon...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Well put all. I guess I agree. I will contest Who's claim though - I think that Charles Grant is actually playing better ball right now than Duece, and I think he may be the better player....

RE: Re: Deuce

Too much cheese for you! LOL

We'll see. I like Grant a lot, but I still give the edge to Deuce. Let's see what kind of seasons the two have. A repeat of last year and I'd be inclined to agree with you.

RE: Re: Deuce

I'll take that.

I don't think that Grant was a fluke last year though. With as bad as the D was, he notched 78 tackles and 10 sacks! Damn.

Of course, with the line being what it was and that dumb 2TE seet, Duece may be back on the horse this year too!

I'm happy to wait and see on this one, but my hunch is that Grant is our best player right now.

RE: Re: Deuce

I'm not sure Grant was a fluke either. I think he'll have another great year.

Then again, I do think Deuce's year was a fluke. Three years ago he had something like 1,350 yards rushing, 350 receiving and 16 TDs. Two years ago it was over 1,600 rushing, over 500 receiving and 8 TDs. Last year he got hurt, the coaches screwed with the offense, and the offense never really got on track - nor did he. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him back over 1,500 yards and 400 or 500 receiving.

If Deuce is back around 2000 total yards and 12 or more TDs, I think he becomes more valuable than Grant. That's my point cheese-lover.

RE: Re: Deuce

Cheese is a step up from smog, ain't it?

I think with the numbers you suggest, replaceability becomes a factor in who is more valuable to us. It is my belief, though largely unfounded I'm sure, that it would be easier to replace Duece than Grant.

RE: Re: Deuce

So there's a bigger drop-off in talent from Grant to Howard and W. Smith than there is from Deuce to A. Smith or Stecker???

Kool - you know that you get all goofy when you eat cheese and granola together!

RE: Re: Deuce

I meant around the league. Not on our freakish team.

RE: Re: Deuce

So that's a no? LOL

You're probably right, there is more talent around the league right now at RB than at DE.
