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; Thinking ahead into the 2010 season, i was reading on several sites basically saying Saints were lucky to have RB's that pretty much can just relieve each other, but we basically have no one really significant.. Instead of getting angry ...

Instead of getting angry about that because ahem.. we kinda ARE the world champions and stuff like that but i'd rather get fan's feedback on who you think will be the Saints Running back that will set the field on fire this year and become that Back we've always wanted..

Will it be Reggie or Pierre or will there be an unsung hero coming out of no where .... again?

I would say Pierre has the best chance at it because he gets more touches back there than anyone else. With that said, does it really matter if we have a 1,000 back? It's not like we need one to win a Superbowl. I'm absolutely fine with the way we've been running things on offense(as mostly everyone should be)... if it happens, great. If it doesn't, it wouldn't be a big deal.

I'll take option D - None of the above.

I agree...Rushing yrds by committee seems to work for us..that said P.T would have the best chance as stated above...What if Reggie did it...would that shut up the naysayers?

I just don't see us having a 1000 yard rusher. Sean is pass-happy and Brees is just too good. We need only run enough to make teams think we might.

That said, if we DO have a 1000 yard rusher, it'll be PT.

With Brees hitting the 40 throw mark several times during the season, I don't think it will happen. PT gets the most touches and that's only about 12 per game. Duece hit 1000 with nearly 20 per game. None of our backs will average 20 per game with Brees doing what he does. They may have 1000+ all purpose yards, but on the ground, 600-800 tops.

no.....we went away from the run late in the season and it hurt us

the other 3 seasons under payton we were a prodominantly passing team with deuce barely eclipsing 1000 yards and i dont see us having near a 1000 yard rusher anytime soon

id love to see us pound the ball and control the clock a little more and force other teams to play a little defense

but our team just doesnt do that
