In the disheveled play that occurred on Friday night when the New Orleans Saints battled the Jacksonville Jaguars there were, in fact, some victories.
The Saints initially could not keep up with Jacksonville’s offense and underrated quarterback Blaine Gabbert but two antagonists were beaming with their execution.
In efforts to make the final roster for the Saints, undrafted running back and Renaissance man Travaris Cadet had the moves much like fellow running backs Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory and Mark Ingram. It just seems that the Saints have the largest deposit of running backs within the NFL.
Cadet’s stats playing against the Jaguars were pretty impressive. The future “tugboat” rushed for 28 yards on only three carries and he also caught five passes for a total of 62 yards. One was a successful touchdown for the Saints. Many die hard fans are awaiting their Cadet jersey and can forecast his placement over Ivory.
In 2011, unlikely wide receiver Joe Morgan had some impressive plays, to include a surprising punt return that was not counted for because of a Saints penalty. Morgan, like Cadet was undrafted and has been striving for a top spot on the Saints receiving squad.
It was after the harsh beginnings playing against the Jaguars that Morgan got New Orleans fans hyped up after catching a 53-yard touch down pass from Saints back up quarterback Chase Daniel.
After both performances during Friday’s Mercedes-Benz Superdome opener, it would seem highly unlikely that both warriors did not make the final roster.
