I can think of two- and they will go a long way toward helping us

Get a running back to compliment Ivory- for when he is injured or to help prevent him from getting injured.

Get JC healthy and back to what he was about to be last year.

After that you just hope you don't have as many injuries as this year

Healthy guys and healthy running backs. That would make it so much easier.

I don't know just how much we can count on the healthy thing. Football is a brutal game and takes its toll on some of the best. We have to have competency two, and for some positions, three levels deep. Five levels deep wasn't good enough at running back. We have to have good coverage as a group - interchangeable pieces like the receiving corp. The O-line group, running backs, receivers, D-line, linbackers, and DB's: each group has to have two good backups where the level of play doesn't fall off the cliff if a starter goes down. We have very few irreplaceables; Brees and Vilma come to mind. I can't think of any others.

You have to be a lucky team to go a season with few to no injuries, don't agree with #5 (did he see the 2008 version) but rest of the list makes sense
