Time to feast.

Anyone know how serious Davenport’s elbow is? How long is he going to be out? it’s so aggravating with this guy. I had high hopes for him this year with a healthy season and bam he’s out the first two games. I didn’t get to focus on his replacements this past game since my internet was down, so I had to watch it on my damn iPhone over 4G. I see why we were after Clowney so bad cause this guy was going to be out for a while.

I think we will be ok without Thomas. Wish we would have him for the Green Bay game, but other than that the rest of the upcoming schedule doesn’t look so bad. Hopefully he will be back at least by the Bears game, but earlier like the Green Bay game would be nice. Hopefully we can lean on the running game of Kamara, Murray, Taysom, and Harris while he’s out.

Looks like we will see Ruiz get his first snaps as a Saint.

I'm expecting Tommy John surgery with his luck.

Nearly 25% games missed. And that’s not including the games he left hurt.

We are entering a stage of his career - while I highly doubt they release him - it wouldn’t come as a total shock if they did. He has no trade value at all. Only positive is that they haven’t IR’d him. Nothing would come as a shock really. Everything with him is just, for lack of a better word, peculiar.

There is virtually no way they pick up the 5th year option after this year (5th year option has to be between last regular season game of year 3 and beginning of next league year) unless he dramatically turns the corner. IMO in year 3, the bust talk is legit. I don’t think he is there yet, but the idea is planted. Talent all there, but you can’t help the club in the tub.

I expect that Davenport will be back next week. If they thought he was going to be out 3 or more games, he would have been put on IR.

Slow down... they´ll pick up his option if he plays well this year. When he is on the field he plays well. At least the injury he is dealing with is not in his lower body, and they seem to expect him back in a week or two (since he is not on IR).

I remember working with a person who bought a pontiac firehawk. He claimed it was the better tuned version of the trans am. He would constantly brag how fast his car was and no one else at work had a car the was faster. No sooner than you know, he was getting dropped off and picked up by his mother.

One day while his car was not working, he ranted how fast it was. A co-worker of mine said, “ You have the fastest car under tree.” It was the moment we all been waiting for. His fast car could not get him to work.

Davenport reminds me of that story. We have one of the most physically athletic rusher on the bench.
