Chris Ivory says he's frustrated... lets use him

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Danno is right, that style of running could do more harm than good right now. The run game sucks but it would suck even more fumbling and Ivory will fumble running like that, it's inevitable. Can't have that right now. ...

Danno is right, that style of running could do more harm than good right now. The run game sucks but it would suck even more fumbling and Ivory will fumble running like that, it's inevitable. Can't have that right now. A turnover with our inability to stop anything is a death sentence.

Re: Chris Ivory says he's frustrated... lets use him

I'm to understand that Ivory also isn't the most sound blocker for Drew, i.e., picking up blitzers

If that's the case, his SHOULD stay on the bench, no sense risking Mr. Brees cause Ivory is frustrated about his touches. Learn2block, then complain

Yes, he runs like Ironhead but he fumbles and he's been injured every year since he entered college.

He may have been the ideal 3rd back until Ingram was drafted. And we all know Ingram is "safe" for now.

This kid needs to keep quiet because what they're missing AINT Chris Ivory.
WRONG!

If you listen to what was said on the pass blocking. Drew wasn't sacked his rookie year with him back there. Now that might have to do with our line was a lot better then than they are now..
But I am all for running this kid, they have to do something, hell if the staff is worried about him putting it on the ground costing us a game. Let him run it until half time. Then use PT, after he wears them out.

Borderline MALPRACTICE.

Freeing Sean Payton is beyond our control. Freeing Chris Ivory should be priority number f*****' ONE right now with NO RUN GAME.

This is getting ridiculous. Last time I looked, Pierre Thomas was the last one who assisted in losing a game by fumbling a football out of the backfield and we LOVE P.T.

Just because you've got Mark Ingram on your fantasy football team and you keep playing him hoping he'll break out is no reason to overlook the best running back on the New Orleans Saints NOT named Pierre Thomas.

Better yet, put him in the game and DON'T give him the football. There will be 20 yards of open field just behind the tightly lined-up linebackers worth exploiting with Jimmy, Lance, Marques, Devrey or Joe.

Rant complete.

No charge... THIS time... LOL

Love you guys!

Alaska
you mean Darren Sproles? lol, sorry had to

I'd like to see Ivory with the ball as much as anybody (except maybe you lol) but the thought of him giving up the ball and giving Peyton Manning an extra possession...


yikes. scary.


Also, if the coaches say he's still coughing it up to OUR defense in practice that's also sorta unnerving, cause he's going against the guys that DON'T start

Re: Chris Ivory says he's frustrated... lets use him

If offense was the problem I'd be much more in favor of changing things up. Sometimes it does provide a spark.

But Ingram isn't the problem with the run game. If PT is running worse than Ingram, do you actually thing Ivory will be any better? Is Ivory better than PT?

Re: Chris Ivory says he's frustrated... lets use him

PT needs to get the ball more, he's the best running back on our team.

The last thing we need is more crippling turnovers from Mr. Ivory.
