DARREN SPROLES COULD OUT-PRODUCE REGGIE BUSH IN NEW ORLEANS

By John U. Miller

In Sproles, the Saints get a durable little guy with smarts, guts, wiggle, and flat-out burst. And his stats blow Bush’s away: Bush averages 4.0 per carry, 7.3 per catch, and 7.8 per punt return for his career. Sproles averages a hefty 4.6, 9.6, and 8.2.

Sean Payton’s scheme obviously fits Sproles because it features a juicy dose of dump-offs and bubble screens. Payton will make sure Sproles gets a convoy and disappears in a sea of would-be tacklers.

How many times have you seen Pierre Thomas take a screen and rumble all the way to pay dirt? Sproles is going to get touches. Remember, Chris Ivory is coming off a Lisfranc foot dislocation and hasn’t been able to visit the team facility for top-notch rehab (because of the lockout). That just leaves Pierre Thomas, whose ankle isn’t 100% yet, and rookie Mark Ingram.

Notable Tidbit: Sproles gets 11 games on carpet this year and he only had four in the previous two seasons!
