Saints Running Game Garnering Attention

Finally it seems some of the national press are waking up to the potential beast of a backfield the Saints are likely to deploy this coming season and it truly makes the heart sing.

In this USA Today piece Jon Saraceno breaks down the key attributes and skills on offer by our multi talented core and concludes that we could have a hum dinger (well der - but then what's obvious to us may not have registered league wide until now so I'll let you off Jon).

He points out the productivity breakdown between Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles and it truly makes for great reading.

To paraphrase "In 78 NFL games, Sproles has produced nearly 10,000 all-purpose yards. Bush, in 60 games, has less than 5,000. "Bang for your buck," Bobby Hebert says."

Who Ahh! Play action baby.

Speaking of which here's a good interview with Drew 'Play Action Oscar Winner' Brees on the teams' prospects.

And just when you thought it couldn't get any better here's some analysis on our much maligned Special Teams.
