    why? the Pats signed earthwin moreland for a playoff game years ago.  if the saints think he can give them something, then it should be fine with everyone else who didnt want him.

    Whats your problem with it?

    Its not as if the NFL changed its rules to accomodate the Saints. There are rules that dictate roster management during the postseason.  1. The player must have been a free agent and not signed to any other team during the last week of the season 2. Teams may sign a maximum of 4 players to their roster during the post season 3. Teams may sign a maxium of 2 players to thier to roster during any one week period. If the Pats were to sign a free agent would you have complained?

    The only problem you could possibly have is with his involvement in the star caps case which PFT wrote about earlier today.

    Deuce is back for the Saints

    In a weekend that could be chock full of "wow" moments, let's start warming up for the next few days.

    Wow.

    A league source tells us that veteran running back Deuce McAllister will be rejoining the Saints in time for Saturday's home playoff game against the Cardinals.

    The Saints could easily clear a roster spot by cutting quarterback Chase Daniel, who was signed two weeks ago for the regular-season finale, given that quarterback Drew Brees was given the day off.

    McAllister was released by the Saints in the offseason, and he has since signed with no one.  He has a four-game suspension hanging over his head, given his membership in the StarCaps six.

    But with the league suspending all suspensions pending resolution of the litigation filed by Vikings defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams, McAllister is free to sign with any team.

    Running back Pierre Thomas has been practicing this week with a rib injury, and it's possible the McAllister would actually be needed.  The more likely explanation is that the Saints are hoping to blow the roof off the Superdome on Saturday after slumping down the stretch. 

    Adding McAllister will only add to the excitement that the fans will be feeling as the Cardinals roll into town.

    I think it's one of the classiest things a team could do--sign a player as beloved by the fans as he is .

    Duece will be inactive for the game.  They only signed him to get the crowd pumped up.

    He deserves to be on that team, he carried that team for a long time where they were terrible.  It is both classy and very smart, the SD is already a tough place to play imagine once he's introduced.  Today the 12th man for the Saints will be 10' tall and 400lbs and runs a 4.20 40, very smart for them to do.
