Droppin’ a Deuce

For those of you that don’t know, the New Orleans Saints just released Deuce McAllister. A number of things come to mind when I think of this move and overall I don’t really like it. Why you ask?

1.Deuce has been with the Saints for a while and was still producing. He struggled with his weight over the years, but it wasn’t too bad. My view is that Tenure + Experience = Undroppable (well, most of the time).

2.Look at their other backs. Pierre Thomas is one raw ass dude, but Reggie Bush is not. Bush is fast, but the only way he has ever contributed to this team was on special teams. He fumbles, gets injured, and is too fancy. All that combined ain’t too good. Even though Bush is pretty awful, we won’t see him get released for a loooong time (if ever) due to him being a #2 overall draft pick.

3. Deuce didn’t doesn’t play around with defenders. When I say this I’m talking about his running style. He didn’t go east, west, or slant ways. Deuce went north and south. Everyone loves a good power back. To add on to that power, he wasn’t the slowest guy either.

It seems like things happen in bunches in the NFL. First we had coaches getting fired left and right and now we have old guys getting dropped from teams. With all that being said, good luck finding another team Deuce.
