Chris Ivory plans to put up “crazy numbers” in Jets’ offense

In three seasons with the Saints, Chris Ivory showed off some highlight-reel runs and averaged an impressive 5.1 yards a carry. But he was buried on a crowded depth chart, and in 2012 he ran the ball only 40 times all season.

Now Ivory has been traded to the Jets, and he thinks that’s just the change he needs to become one of the best backs in the NFL.

“It’s an opportunity for me to really get the carries that I deserve,” Ivory said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “I put the work in every day and every week. I just feel like it’s my time. . . . I feel like I can go out there and do some great things with the opportunities I’ll be given, and I know I’m going to make the most of it. With every little glimpse I had in New Orleans, I did great things. If I’m getting more than six and seven carries a game, the sky is the limit for me. I can do some great things and put up some crazy numbers in New York.”

The Jets and Ivory have agreed to terms on a new three-year contract, and he’s viewed as their No. 1 running back going forward. If the future of the Jets’ offense is Ivory as the starting running back and Geno Smith as the starting quarterback, most Jets fans would gladly take that over a pairing of Bilal Powell and Mark Sanchez.

Re: Chris Ivory plans to put up “crazy numbers” in Jets’ offense

He has 2 things against him:

1. Himself; he can't stay healthy an entire season
2. The Jets offense isn't anywhere close to what he had in New Orleans; the two offenses have as much in common as a chameleon to a crocodile. I do wish Tusk much success with his new team; except when the Jets play the Saints!!

I hope he stays healthy and rushes for say 1300yds with 12 of those coming against the Saints.

We will see how he does for a full season now. He will certainly have the opportunity to shine with Sanchez if he stays healthy, best of luck Ivory.
