Really, to hell with Beanie Wells.

And I'm a PT23 fan but I think we can upgrade him, and Ivory may well be that upgrade.

I'd rather have PT and Ivory than Bush and Ivory.

Bush is one I'd like to upgrade.

If we can find a way we try to keep all 4 same guys. Yes, any one is expendable, but as this season has shown, depth can be a huge asset. Imagine still being Betts and Wynn at this point?

Hell, we might as well put PT on IR for the rest of this year. We don't miss him that much.
Been an Ivory fan, he runs with power and he has decent speed. He will be needed late in the season and he's built for games such as those. He is going to be key against the Ravens. Not since Deuce we've haven't had a power runner. He has now changed the face of the backfield. PT will be back he is the best besides Bush not only in open space but in the screen game. So Bush, PT, Ivory and Jones who can still ball himself.

He is one of the only guys on the team still interviewing for a permenent job. If everyone was playing to his level we would be blowing everyone away.

I am a PT fan but I have been really impressed with the way Ivory runs the ball. I still think when PT gets back he will be our starting RB. He is effective running the ball and catching the ball. I think ball control is a big issue with Ivory even though Brees has two more fumbles than Ivory he handled the ball 650 more times this year. I'm OK with that from Brees a fumble every 100 times you touch the ball is better than a fumble every 30 times you touch the ball.

PT 3 fumbles in 374 rush attempts.
Ivory 4 fumbles in 123 rush attempts.
Bush 19 fumbles in 501 rush attempts.

Check out "Hemp Revolution" on Netflix.

Good post, and you make good points. I'm not all that concerned about a rookie fumbling the ball though. Our coaching staff can clean that up.

I'm one thinks Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory can coexist and complement each other well. Thomas, Bush, Ivory, and fill-in-the-blank (I like Jones) are a formidable backfield.

Idk, Ivory is tearing it up, but he does not run smart, he just relies on brute power, which will inevidibly lead to injury. He is fine as a back to keep on to use until this happens, but we need to find another back to compliment him and groom to be the feature back.

Another thing to consider, yes Ivory reminds me of Duece, but how many seasons did Duece play every game? I agree, with that running style, you are going to get hurt, alot. I am on board the Ivory bandwagon though, the guy is a stud. Just hope he can stay healthy. Duece had to retire way before his time.

As far as Bush goes, Lance can pick up the slack, if Bush decides to bail. He runs the routes, knows the plays, and has a nose for the ball. Bush leaves? I'm not going to cry.

It would appear Coach Payton agrees with you. This coach likes run by committee. Having said that I'm just glad we don't have ditka or some other doofus as a coach anymore.
