Do we even have a thousand yard rusher in the bunch!!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; After what happened last year with the injuries to the RB's I don't think Payton will run one back enough to allow him to reach 1000 yards. Keeping them healthy for the playoffs is what he is looking to do. ...

After what happened last year with the injuries to the RB's I don't think Payton will run one back enough to allow him to reach 1000 yards. Keeping them healthy for the playoffs is what he is looking to do. I love our situation with 4 very capable RB's the only problem is a wish we would run the same plays with all of them. We get to predictable when certain RB's enter the game. We need to keep defenses guessing. Throw the ball a little bit more when Ingram and Ivory are in there so defenses aren't sitting on run. Mix it up.

P.T. is our best RB, IMO. Love Sproles but he is not a RB. It almost seems we are watered down at RB with these four and none of them can get on a role.

Best bet for 1,000 yards on the ground given the carries - PT23 and Ivory

Best combo of the 4 - PT23 and Sproles

Best bet for 1,000 yards in the next 3 years - Mark Ingram

Best bet for the IR or another team - Chris Ivory

Best situation to have in the league - New Orleans Saints

Using DNA samples and cloning technology, we should set out this bye week to create a runningback named Pierre Ingram-Sproles. He would rush for 1000+ yards and be better than Maurice Jones-Drew.

I think we have four running backs capable of 1,000 yard seasons, and 1 on the practice squad, unfortunately RBBC usually prevents such milestones from occurring.

They aren't worried about individual stats because they're team players. Why are you?

x626xBlack, you could always become a Falcons fan or Houston fan instead of badmouthing your own team in such a disloyal fashion.

Fair weather fans aren't really fans. Got it.

To me it's a no brainer.......Sproles is the team this year. PT when healthy is as good as it gets. He is the king of the screen and he was spectacular in '09. He knows how to finish plays and always falls forward. Neither one of these guys can be a featured back and make it through a 16 game season and playoffs. That's when you need a thumper. Now most of you would put Ivory up there as the best thumper we have. He has looked better this year with his vision and I don't think he's coughing it up like he did in the beginning. His down fall is staying healthy which is hard to do with this running style. Ingram has surprised me somewhat.....because I expected an immediate impact. He's been pretty good on the short plays and given us the tough yards. If we didn't have Sproles he would be having a bigger impact with a higher number of touches. We drafted Ingram then got lucky in FA.
I've got a feeling we are going to see a lot of all these guys as the year winds down. Next year we will be taking calls for trades. We do need a high draft pick.
