At the beginning of the off-season, I was all for getting rid of Deuce McAllister because clearly he wasn't the same Deuce and then I watched this. Ever since the rumors of the Saints being interested in a RB in the 1st round began to surface, I started thinking: A shiny, new RB would be just that, shiny, new, and full of expectations.
However, Deuce knows he's getting old and his carries, of course, would be limited, and that's exactly what we need, right? Well I believe so. I am a big fan of Pierre Thomas and I do believe he can and should be the feature back, but this is a copy cat league and if we are looking for the element of "earth" as a part of a cliched trio, then why not Deuce? If someone asked me that question, my answer would be, "Because I know he's going to get hurt again," but doesn't every running back? You're almost guaranteed to get injured as an NFL RB. For the first time in a while, Deuce played a full season and it seemed as though last season was apart of his knee's rehabilitation as he had a very limited role. So this year Deuce can MAYBE show flashes of the old Deuce again and I'm stating this right here and right now: I DON'T WANT ANOTHER RB, I WANT DEUCE.
