Has he ever been in the return game?
Speedy ran back punts. Well when I say ran back punts I mean he sometimes caught punts and sometimes fumbled them to the other team.
Darren Sproles college stats were 1500 yds, 20 tds, and a whole 1.6 yds/carry better than Speedy's. I love what Speedy gave to the Buffs, but he is not the next Darren Sproles. Less about agility & moves, more about strength (Darren is 15 pounds heavier at the same height) and raw straight line speed.
Sproles also played for much better teams than Speedy did.
Yeah, that is a weird comparison. Sproles is the better all-around player by far.
I'd compare Speedy to more of a Quentin Griffin. Remember him? Now we just need to get him the oversized elbow pads...
Kinda sucks that my insider ran out 2 weeks ago and i dont support ESecPN....
That doesn't make Speedy faster or stronger.
Not sure about stronger but Sproles is absolutely faster but when you were comparing stats, they will likely be better when you are on a better team.
They'll also be better if you are a better player.
Maybe but better teams will potentially make players look better than they actually are. Sproles is a better player than Speedy but it's tough to compare the two when both were in different situations.
It is not tough to compare the two players in this situation. Any reasonable person would say Sproles is the far better player.
good luck to speedy. he was a good Buff.
Hope you're not referring to me.
Sproles was one of the strongest players when he was at K State. Little dude could bench over 420 pounds. He was the best free agent acquisition this past year in the NFL. Saints got an absolute steal from San Diego, who also gave them Drew Brees a few years before.
We can confidently assume that Boulder Buff was not calling you reasonable.
I never caught that before. The 'Aints are using Sandy Eggo as their farm team.
Front office are idiots, 2 of the best players in the NFL last season. That's why the Saint's are a playoff team, and San Diego is not.
I think Sproles is faster and stronger. It will be interesting to see how Speedy's times compare.
