I really like Deuce as well this year. He wasn't overly productive for inside the 10 last year, but he didn't have many chances either (he was 4/15 inside the 10). In 2002 he was 9 for 25 which also tells me for some reason, they decided to change their goalline philosophy last year. If they get back to using him more in the goalline region, there's no reason he shouldn't be off the charts. The one thing that I have a question about somewhat is them losing lead blocker Terrelle Smith to FA. They got Sam Gash as a replacement but he's long in the tooth.

I think the Saints dropped Sam Gash and are planning to run mostly single back formations.

has Duece ever been in a single back formation before? What were the results? I also read that he partially tore a ligament last year but still played through it. Just this/last week he was complaining about pain in that knee. Actually didnt he have surgery on it too?

You know what, I think I just might throw out the window every "could this be" injury that happens in the preseason. I have seen a TON of hamstrings, soreness, etc injuries that people sit out for. Yet if all these people actually did sit out there wouldn't be anyone to play on sundays. So I wont look (hopefully) too much at these injury reports ne more before the season starts.

I thought that you told us yesterday that you had him #5? :-b

I think that you had. Priest, Green, Portis, LT, Deuce. Or something like that - too lazy to check :-D

Word out of Saints camp is they are happy with rookie FB Mike Karney for what it's worth.

As far the knee injury, yeah he partially tore a knee ligament against Jax but it didn't require surgery and he continued to play. He sure is a tough SOB for someone that scouts thought was overrated as a first round RB.

Maybe it's just where he projects Duece to go,not where he intends to take him.Why give such vital info away to competitors,as KG undoubtedly has here?Tomorrow start a thread how Deuce should be #8 overall and really throw em for a loop!

You speak as if we actually listen to Ghidra anyway.

Oh, by the way, I'm not telling you my post count. :-b
