Which RB should get the most carries?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I agree with Danno it totally depends on the situation. If you're looking for short yardage, it's Ingram. Pierre excels in the screen game, and Darren is a fantastic slot receiver (better than Reggie ever was imho). Maybe a better ...

In any case, I'm very skeptical about giving Chris Ivory a big workload. Our running game is working very well, and I hope they work Ivory back in gradually. Then again, he torched the Bucs last season, so who knows.

In any case, I believe we have the scariest running back corps in the NFL!!!!

I would love to see Mark Ingram crank out 25 carries. I am very interested to see how he would do in a full game. But honestly, I say keep things as is for now, all three have their specific rolls and all seem to be doing well.

Sproles deserves every carry he gets. But, if he goes down, the Saints would lose it's most versatile playmaker. Thomas looks healthy and happy and is one of the best screen guys I've ever seen. But, he hasn't made it through a complete season yet. Ingram seems to get better the more carries he gets. I personally would feed him and work the other guys in. His upside is greater than the other two. I just hope Ivory is active when the playoffs roll around. A pounder/short yardage specialist could be the difference in the Saints making it back to the Super Bowl. Especially if it comes down to a very cold day in January in Breen Bay.

Finally, there's someone else who gets it!

I'm just glad we have this problem, certainly a change from last year. Agree with situational however.

With the good weather in outdoor stadiums and the games in the domes having ideal situations for a superior passing offense, I think that all three backs have been used quite well. We'll enjoy four healthy backs for when the weather slows the Saints passing game down. The weather in Green Bay is miserable in January you know.

Sproles is the hot player now. I hope that he stays hot but if his production wanes I have confidence that any of the other backs can build momentum and take over games.

Personally, I love all these guys but PT is my guy. He and Colston are great players that play within the system without any desire for attention.
Danno and strato like this.

Agreed, but I bet you can find quite a few posters here who jumped on the false claim that PT was milking his injury last year for contract leverage/security, and that coach Payton was angry at him because of it.
