I think Sproles has had a very light load these last two years, and I think he will still have a lot to offer. Maybe not quite the same speed, but moves and experience are still a threat. Still like to watch him with the ball in his hands. The one real problem I see is that he is only in the backfield and gets the ball every time, they need to use him as a decoy at times. This O can still be predictable at times and Doug needs to ensure that doesn’t happen.

Ain't that the truth! I always say the same thing (well, only when the play doesn't work anyway lol). Actually he's a very good blocker so that shouldn't be a problem. We should have no excuses on third down with the 3 bigs we will have (Alshon, Zack and Philly).

You know that if you're seeing it, defensive coordinators are definitely seeing it.
