Re: Any word on Big Sed

I think I'm more concerned with the ellis injury. With atlanta coming to townn and that run game, we need to stuff the middle.

The ellis injury concerns me more. Atl likes to run through the tackles. That could be a major factor.

Don't we still have Obelananialian Somemboleyoleian (SP?) to play FB?

It's not great losing Evans for some time, but the net positive/negative effect of one fullback over another is probably less than any other spot in the offense. Still Evans has been making some big plays.

I bet he rehabs in time for that NE game...

Who needs a fullback? The ball carrier. Payton brought Evans in after releasing a quality fullback so that he could expand his game. We have plays designed for all combinations of the running backs and Payton obviously likes having a blocker for his backs to get behind. Our Backs follow the blocks better now and it is an integral part of the game. Who needs a fullback? Payton does.

Re: Any word on Big Sed

New Orleans Saints keep silent on injury updates
By Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune
October 27, 2009, 12:18PM

Saints Coach Sean Payton declined to give any injury updates on fullback Heath Evans and defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, both of whom left Sunday's game at Miami with right knee injuries. He said the Saints will update their status on Thursday, when the team practices for the first time this week.

Payton always tries to stay secretive early in the week when it comes to injuries for game-planning purposes, so you can't read between the lines too much. But it does seem a bit foreboding that Payton didn't offer any encouraging news about their MRI results or express any optimism that they might be able to practice this week.

When asked if he could rule out any serious injuries, Payton again said he'll wait until Thursday to discuss the details.

Sarcasm alert! Thought the mad scientist part would give it away. Yes I know we need a lead blocker but I can see Payton using the 3 backs all at once. I see a TE (Thomas)or possible Strief being used as a FB.
