Kamara: Go ahead and buy No. 41 jersey, I'm not switching

Alvin Kamara had the same reaction as everyone else when he first found out he was wearing jersey No. 41 with the New Orleans Saints.

It's not exactly a classic number for a running back -- especially a dynamic runner/receiver like the Saints rookie.



But obviously the number has grown on Kamara as he is on a torrid pace for 741 rushing yards, 663 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns.

"I was like, 'Man, 41?!" Kamara told ESPN Baton Rouge's Matt Moscona. "And Coach (Sean) Payton was like, 'Oh no, that's temporary. We'll change it. You're gonna be out of it. Don't worry about it.' And I was like, 'Alright.' I mean, it's cool.

"I've had opportunities to change, I mean, I've still got opportunities to change right now. I think I'm gonna stick with it. ... I think I'm gonna ride with the 41, I think I like it. I think all the fans and everybody, they've grown to it, too. So I think I'm gonna stay with it."

Chuck Muncie was 42.
Kamara is the shorter upgraded reboot of Muncie!
Therefore he's 41!

I don't really give a %^* what # he wears, as long as he keeps showing defenses the # on his back.

I still think #47 would be perfect for him - AK47

I don't think he compaires to Muncie at all. They are two different type runers. Kamara is a hybrid of a Ingram and Bush. I see him closer to PT than Muncie.

FYI when I played ball I wore 42 after Muncie.
