Our Running Game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; i don't think i ever heard of any o-line only blocking for big school rbs. you get paid to do a job and it should be carried out no-matter who's behind drew. i still believe we will go all out ...

I agree on this one. I really really like Stinchcomb because hes so good on the screens and a really good leader but I'd like to see a real roadgrader on the RT spot. Turly-like just big mean and with a nasty streak.

This! You go to work and you do your job irregardless. That's why you get paid. If you can't do your job, you get fired and they find someone to do your job better than you did.

There are lots of good RB's coming from so called small schools.
Michael Turner - N. Illinois
Chris Johnson - E. Carolina
Ahmad Bradshaw - Marshall
Ray Rice - Rutgers
Matt Forte - Tulane

My point is not that good RB's don't come from small schools.

It's that you can't expect much from a guy like Ivory who get's thrown into action all of a sudden - especially in Payton's system. Combine a rookie with guys like Deshawn Wynn, Joique Bell and Ladell Betts, your running game suffers.

And don't think for one second that every RB runs the same and that all the O line has to do is block the same way. Different runners, different styles, different vision, etc... your running game suffers.

So is your job ever affected by a new employee or boss? Or do things just run smoothly?

In regards to draft - not that you're asking - I think it's still too soon to know but either in FA or draft, the front seven will receive an upgrade or two before RB is addressed.

What running game? We've got Evans and Nicks and we don't run the ball because...we don't have running backs...

Lynell had a history of knee problems before coming to NO. Will he return?
Ivory was a small school back who Payton probably didn't plan on even using this season. He'll still be 3rd or 4th on the depth chart next year.
PT is a versatile back that excels in Payton's system. If he's healthy, why not have him return??
Still like to see Reggie back at a price that the team can live with.
PJ Hill.... Is he the guy?

You're so right Injuries killed the running game.
