The Saints' penchant for spreading the ball around is manifesting itself with impressive results. The Saints are on pace to Finnish as one of five teams with four players who have gained 1,000 yards from scrimmage

No offense in the NFL spreads the ball around quite like the Saints', which is on pace to make NFL history this season.

Deuce McAllister, Reggie Bush, Marques Colston and Joe Horn all are on track to gain more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year. No NFL team has had two running backs and two receivers do that in the same season.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only four teams have had four players gain more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage -- the 2004 Indianapolis Colts, the 1995 Atlanta Falcons, the 1990 Houston Oilers and the 1989 Washington Redskins. Each of those teams used one tailback and three receivers to accomplish the feat.

Shot, if Devery comes on back we could have 5!

Thanks for the info, I had no idea we were spreading it around that good!

Definitely makes the opposition think about who to take out of the game. This is a major reason we are 5-1 right now.

That is awesome. Hopefully we can continue spreading the ball around against the Ravens and take home victory #6
