So I don't think its a bad idea to keep 5, especially when one of them can also play all 4 special teams units, WR in an emergency, our 3rd QB if an emergency arises during a game, and be a "slash" type weapon on gadet plays as he develops further.

Besides, Cadet probably comes closest to Sproles skillset than any other back we have.
On a side note, How good is the Saint scouting department that we're so loaded up at running back that we, as fans, are lamenting the loss of even the 5th guy? And that 3 of these five guys are undrafted.
Halo, SaintsBro and SloMotion like this.

Shanle just keps showing up. Like the Eveready Bunny.
The only thing he lacks is speed, quickness, change of direction, ...
The way things are going, he may be the only LB left standing.
We all have to admit, 7yds a carry is impressive.
That becomes mute if you turn right around and give the ball away at 10%.
I love Ivory, but he may be good barter for another decent linebacker.
At Ivory's current rate, he would be good to a turnover almost every other game.
Over the course of the season, that's 8 TOs. EIGHT! That's a lot for one guy.

Good point, his Houston tackle was a direct line tackle. And most injuries happen when cutting, changing direction or on some sort of contact.... All three he avoids.

Ivory has had 4 fumbles in 18 regular season games with the Saints... He had 3 in the first 6 games of 2010 then it went away for the most part.

I cant gig him on the fumble in preseason against the Texans (only one this preseason)... any more than I can gig Piere Thomas for fumbling in the 49ers game... When you hit a wall you drop things.

I was actually waiting for Chris Tucker to run on the field after Ivorys hit.


If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
