Ivory obviously impressed fans but some are getting carried away with their expectations. He has shown one dimension to his running game. It's an impressive dimension sure, but Ingram has shown power and speed and balance in college and so far in the two preseason games.

I'm with you Dizzle. I think that Ingram is going to be very good.

Now we need to get the offensive line to make a hole for them.

I'm personally very happy with the way things are at the moment - with 3 good RBs who all bring something special to the table. Even Sproles showed flashes of greatness in that Texans game and to be honest, he has been kind of an afterthought in my mind behind PT and Ingram.

Ivory can also prove to be a valuable asset in the coming season. I truly hope that at least one of the 3 guys can stay healthy the whole season, but the chances are not all of them can. If Ivory starts on the PUP for maybe 4-6 weeks, and then steps up fresh for one of the 3 other RBs... it might be just what the Saints need and what they would've needed last season.

I'm also optimistic about Ivory in the long-term. If he can work on staying healthier - whether it be by f.e. doing yoga and/or pilates (like discussed on another thread) or by making chances in his running technique and mentality - he can have great success with the Saints or some other team if that's what the future holds for him. Whatever the outcome, I wish all the best for him.
