This was my comment on the blog posted earlier about new orleans bringing in alexander for a workout.
Some of yall read my blog where I stated that talk was as cheap as washed up mvps. now ive read all these comments and everyone of yall is dead on with your own perspectives and I aree with most of the posts here. but being a Saints fan stranded in seattle for the past 2 years and seeing the demise of alexander first hand i have to say he still has no heart left to date. He got his fat contract and didnt perform up to standard in 06 either? and we all know how awful he was in 07 hell the hawks cut ties with him before hasselback, and i only say that cause matt has holmgrin in his ear 30 seconds before every play and he the only one of the two who run backwards for a living to start with.
the saints brought him in just primarily im willing to state as a resort to turn to early on in the season if he wasnt signed right away, we have depth and as one post stated above me, my god how many backs do we really need.
im still sticking with deuce comming back to all pro form this season, do people forget that he had double knee surgery and had them both enhanced through cartilage growing holes being placed in the knee? not to mention look at what my man drew brees had done that was simularback in 06? drews on the golf courses now whippin ass with a completely regrown rotator cuff.
he is our banger and one of our leaders in both the organization and the gulf coast community. and reggie will only benift from having deuce back to form as well as sean payton finaly putting him back split out in the open space or in the same backfield as karney and duece. plus pierre thomas is the heir apparent in 2 years to the banger spot if not now.
i believe shaun will be the next griffey story of returning to cincy and being mediocre, but even junior still made all star games.
