Ivory vs Cadet - who's inactive this week?

I heard some guys on Inside the Saints comment that Cadet will be inactive practically all season.

I disagree. If all our RB's are healthy, I see the odd man out as Ivory.

Cadet plays every secial team's unit and Ivory plays none.

I see Ingram and Ivory swapping being active based on who's dinged up. I think Cadet will be active a lot, barring injury.

What say you?

Re: Ivory vs Cadet - who's inactive this week?

I tend to agree with you. I think Cadet will be active because of his special teams play for one. Also Sproles has been dinged up and since Cadet is closer to Sproles style play, I have a feeling they may have Cadet on the sideline to spell Sproles to take some of the workload off him. I don't see them not activating Ingram unless he is injured though.

I agree with Danno. Cadet is a versitile weapon. Ivory is a RB and thats it. I could see Cadet maybe inactive for the first 2 or 3 games just to get him up to par but other than that, I think Ivory rides the pine.

Thats the other issue. Is Cadet ready for NFL action right now, or does he need a few more weeks under his belt before he sees the field?

With Sproles a little bit gimpy, they may activate Ivory for injury insurance.

Re: Ivory vs Cadet - who's inactive this week?

Yeppers, I agree also

But I do think this situation means that Ivory's trade day is coming...the Saints have the luxury of being able to wait until mid-late season when someone is in a RB situation like we were in '10; contenders, but having to play our 17th string RB because there's no one better available. That makes Ivory's value to THAT PARTICULAR TEAM skyrocket, and maybe we can get better than a 7th for him

That is, if he can stay healthy that long.

Sproles dinged up?

Saints' coaches listed Sproles as FULL.

...maybe I missed somthing.

and that is why we won't be dressing him this week

My guess is neither Ivory or Cadet will dress, unless Cadet is returning kicks to save Sproles and/or Roby. We didn't dress 5 at all last year.

Re: Ivory vs Cadet - who's inactive this week?

I know "you can only tell so much" from preseason, and all that, but Cadet seems too talented to sit for long. Frankly, all our RB's have struggled with injuries (Sproles was our only RB to play in all 16 games last season), so I think it's reasonable to expect to see Cadet dressed out this season.

Yeah, but did we have five to dress last year? Even if we would've wanted to?
