NO has three running backs, I dnt hear their fans whining. Be glad we have two stud RBs and a stud FB/RB.
Lets compare age, invest financially, and production of NO backs and ours last year.
I have a feeling we would be disappointed.
fug I will do it now.
DWill- 836 Yards 7 TD's 16 catches 135 yards 0 TD 5yrs 43 Million
Stew 761 Yards 4 TD's 47 Catches 413 yards 1 TD 5yrs 20 million (Rookie Deal)
Dwill is close to 30, Stew is 25 ? I think
NO's Running Backs
Sproles 603 yards 2 tds 86 catches 710 yards 7TD's 4yrs 14million
Ingram 474 yards 5tds 4yrs 7million (Rookie Deal)
Thomas 562 yards 5 Td's 50 catches 300yrds 1 TDs 4yrs 11mill
Sproles in close to 30
Ingram is early 20s
Thomas is mid 20's
So in closing of the complete raping of you all's opinions on the matter
The Saints* got roughly 1500+yrds on the ground 1000 yards in the air and 20 TD's last year on a cap hit roughly 7 million
The PANTHERS got Roughly 1500+ yards on the ground 500 yards in the air and 12 TD's for a cap hit of 10million.
500 Yards...8 TD's on 3 million less
All of this doesn't even get into the clusterfug that it will be when we pay Stew like 50mill of 5 years or some bullshit.
The same can be done with less with how the league is set up right now.
Perhaps we will be the team that brings back the ground attack.
Perhaps we won't.
Bottom line is I along with many think we are paying DWill too much and will ultimately do the same with Stew, to the detriment of the team as a whole.
