Yeah Deuce is a great guy, a Saints Legend who loves New Orleans.
And absolutely none of that will matter in the Saints' attempt to win football games.
Deuce has the knees of an 80-year-old man and while I'm all for the Saints giving him a shot at trying to play, my main concern is this: If the Saints are counting on Deuce to be a big part of the offense this year, then it means once again they'll be stuck with the 'All Midget Backfield' of Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, and Aaron Stecker.
How'd that go last year?
Against the Eagles with 1st and goal from the one-yard line...it went as well as a whore in church -- just horrible for everyone involved.
When the Saints have trouble picking up 3rd and 2 and have no power run game because Deuce is injured and the Saints have no alternative, I want no complaining for you people.
This will end very badly for the Saints if they don't draft a back early this year.
