Kristian Quick Hits: Saints win in high scoring game with no Sproles

By committee: 

With RB Darren Sproles out for tonight's game against the Eagles, the question becomes who will fill in for the speedy pass catching running back?  It will fall on a committee of backs. 

Rookie Traveris Cadet will get a chance to build on an impressive preseason, both on offense and in the return game.  Chris Ivory should finally get his chance that was said to be coming.  I would also expect to see Pierre Thomas be a bigger factor in the game plan. 

"It's a significant loss, but the Saints have so many weapons on this offense.  It hurts, but that doesn't mean they can't do without him (Sproles)," said Saints Color Analyst Hokie Gajan. 

Assistant Coach Joe Vitt refused to give a timetable on how much time Sproles might miss.  "I'm not a doctor," he responded when about how long Sproles could be out of the lineup.


The Saints defense is just too big of an issue, and the Eagles are fighting for Michael Vick and their Coach Andy Reid's job.  I'm picking New Orleans to win, but it will be because of an inspired Drew Brees led offensive attack that outscores the Eagles and Michael Vick.  I think we will see a 35-31 Saints win in a wild one with a lot of big plays. 

The Saints defense is just bad, but then again so is the Eagles D. 
Don't walk away from this game too long, you'll miss a score.  The Saints have won 7 straight Monday night football games, they'll push that streak to 8 tonight.
