Official Alvin Kamara Hype Thread
This was the one guy that when we drafted him, I made a fist pump that would make Tiger Woods proud. If our offense had a weakness last year, it's that we didn't have a RB who could get those tough 3rd down and mediums. CSP went out and got the guy for the job. Kamara has some pretty great fortune when it comes to being matched up with elite signal callers.

Kamara is a hybrid of Sproles, Bush, and Thomas. He's got Reggie's hands, Sproles' agility, and Thomas' innate ability to break a frick ton of tackles. Idk what it is, but just like with PT cruiser, defenders just seem to bounce off the guy. You'll see it in this highlight and pretty much every time he touches the ball

Kamara shredding A & M

Kamara was the #1 RB in the draft in terms of SPARQ rating (Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction, and Quickness). He doesn't have the best break away speed (neither did sproles), but he has great burst that results in a lot of big plays (like sproles). Mike Mayock has Kamara as the 27th best player in the draft, so it's safe to say he was a steal in the 3rd round.

Kamara had 13 TD's on 143 touches last year

As an added bonus, Kamara may not just be a joker back and could eventually develop into a featured RB. He can run between the tackles. Many GM's and "experts" compare him to Jamaal Charles (although I don't think he's nearly as fast).

For those that wonder about his minimal playing time, he just wasn't a fit at Alabama and he was so good at UT that Jalen Hurd quit the team. I am pumped to see what he can do in this offense and actually think he could be the Saints RB of the future, not just a 3rd down pass catcher

Kamara highlights

This guy was utilized horribly by Butch Jones, now he's got Sean Payton.

I thought Spiller was all of this and we all know how that turned out. Im not sure we are ever going to duplicate Sproles. Im hopeful for Kamara though and like what he brings to the table.

Spiller was constantly hurt in Buffalo. What made you think he would be healthy in Nola? Our awesome team doctors?

Obvious alter is obvious.

Why wouldn't you just bump this thread while under breauxmo? It's legit bump-worthy cuz Kamara is on fire.

But Your 14 post history shows you basically use ithe alter to prop up your own breauxmo posts/points.

I've thought about creating an alter just because some posters don't have the debating IQ to backup their point or can't articulate a refutation to one of my points, so they routinely fall back on the transparently-stumped & lame run-from-debate line "Stick to making photoshops/GIFs, Freek". An alter wouldn't guarantee me well-thought-out replies, but at least I might garner a reply as opposed to cowardly retreats.

But I'd never use an alter to boost up myself or reinforce points I can clearly articulate & defend on my own.
