Will the Saints have a running back rush for over 1,000 yards this regular season? If so, who will it be?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; PT has the ability but we use a 3 headed monster!! Given the carries PT can BUT I think SP continues to spilit carries among RB, PT & LH....

Pierre Thomas is the most likely. He shares carries with other backs so much though that considering him the "feature back" is not exactly accurate. I think he can get close, but may fall just short. I think Bush could definitely have a big year where he averages 5+ yds a carry, but Bush gets so many touches in other parts of the game that handing off to him enough for 1000 yds may be a bit much. I think Bush could get 600-800 yds(though towards the 800 side may be pushing it) on a good year(in the way we use him). If he was used like a regular every down back maybe.

For some reason I have a feeling that our running game is gonna be used more even than it was last year. Our offense was the best when we were feeding the backs consistently.
