If the New Orleans Saints had won their wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks in January, coach Sean Payton could have faced quite a dilemma the following week.

Because of injuries to Reggie Bush and Julius Jones during the loss to the Seahawks, Payton likely would’ve been down to two healthy running backs - including one whose name he couldn’t pronounce.

Rookie Joique Bell, who had never carried the ball in an NFL regular-season game, was signed by the Saints three days before the Seahawks game after Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory were put on injured reserve.

While he was inactive against the Seahawks, it’s possible Bell (whose name is pronounced Joyk) would have been front and center with DeShawn Wynn if there had been another game.

“I was going to be playing in the next game, but we weren’t quite able to make it,” Bell said of his new team’s shocking 41-36 loss to the Seahawks. “But that just made me more hungry for this season.”

I still think "Hell's Bells" by AC/DC is a better choice

I just don't see him making the team over Ivory. If Ivory's healthy look out PT and MI.
