Re: Saints got exposed today
When Sproles is unavailable, whatever offense he's been a part of becomes infinitely easier to play. He's the most underrated skill position player in the league imo and has been for a few years.
With him, the Saints have their entire offense available. Not the case with any other back. Thomas is the closest approximation in that he's servicable in both run and pass downs, but that's a far cry from what Sproles brings to the table.
