I just hope Ivory can make it the whole game. If so, we got this.

At the moment I hope he can actually start.

Bizarrely, the Saints have an issue of RBs starting and not finishing games over the last few weeks.

Seems the fact is we have a generally unable to FULLY participate Saints team on Offense / Defense/ Special Teams going in to the playoffs. A long hard slog and no gimmes this trip

It's all about the matchups.

And this offense is very capable of running the football Ė especially when our RBís are healthy. BUT how many games have we had that this year???

Itís the Saints defense who benefits most from quick leads. Without them, our D line can be exposed by the run game.

So, in the last meeting, Drew threw to 5 different receivers for over 20yds per catch and 4 TDís. Tell me why, exactly we need to run the ball vs. Seattle so badly??

We've got so many weapons to prepare for it might just be easier for Pete Carroll to get a good night's sleep so he looks good at the press conference giving his concession speech. Getting to the playoffs is one thing.......playing a motivated Saints team is quite another thing.

You make valid points. But a threat of a running game opens the passing game. We could have issues on passing - Colston and Graham and Shockey likely not 100% fit and Thomas (D) definitely not. Henderson has caught nada the last 2 games. We tend to give away some 3 penalties on offense and 1 interception per game.

I understand what a good running game does, but why do we need it vs Seattle. Drew torched them except for two baaaad throws.

Reggie will carry the load bc the Seahawks' "run D" is an "F"!!
