When you two get done with your hug and ground yourself for a second, please tell me what logic it is to give Ivory the nod over Ingram. Keep in mind I like all 4 of our backs and am not enamored with any one of them.

Its easy my man...here is some simple math for you to digest oh and a bonus vid for your enjoyment..

Chris Ivory stats..

Games played 14

Att Yds avg long

158 801 5.1 55


Mark Ingram
Att Yds Avg long
93 340 3.7 20





Is this logical enough?

We spent the pick(s); let 'em play and let the chips fall where they may...

There is enough film on Ivory and PT if someone wants to trade, most teams are picking up the Saints' que and getting rookie FA or late round picks (Giants got Da'Rel Scott and his 4.3 in Round 7!

Don't expect a trade of PT, though the contract is a little high, it's not that bad...

Ivory would yield more and I'd rather keep PT's experience...

ingram is just better than ivory and pierre

theres no other way around it. after only 10 games we know who our best running back is

with the game on the line which running back will get the ball? ingram already did game 1.....hes been our 4th qtr and short yardage back all season

that means that the coaching staff already has the most faith in him to get the job done when we need it

It's like trying to pick your favorite kid here... If Ivory could stay healthy, and play the way we know he can, we don't even draft Ingram? Just a thought.... I love Ivory, but I think you gotta go with Ingram. Ivory came into the season, on the edge of IR... Again....

On another note, I saw yesterday, that college career stat comparisons, Ingram actually had better numbers than Trent Richardson... That's pretty darn good....

PT should be getting the bulk of the carries.
Week 11, and I'm still waiting for Ingram to break it outside and maximize a run.
He's still running up the backs of his blockers and losing forward momentum.
He's still getting hit square in the chest and driven back at the end of his runs.
I think he'll be OK, but until then, PT should be getting the bulk of the carries.
PT follows his blockers better and finishes his runs going forward, not backward.
Isn't it great having to make a choice between good, gooder, and better?

The highlight reel on Ivory was awesome. I hope the other teams around the league get a copy of it because his inability to stay on the field has lowered my expectations. I love PT and what he brings to the game. Sproles has been the best pick up of the off season. Ingram gets the tough yards and has a very high ceiling. Ivory runs like a beast. Tough problem to have. Remember we drafted Ingram before we brought in Sproles to fill Reggie's spot.
