Re: Overlooked Ivory a very pleasant surprise for the Saints ... again

Overlooked by the Saints? WTF??? He was a fumble machine at practice and struggled to pick up pass protections. Joe Vitt himself said he'd gotten much better in pass protection, which earned him a shot on the field.

I guess everyone forgets 3 weeks ago when trade rumors were floating around the team stated "Chris Ivory ain't going anywhere".

Overlooked my ass.

For an undrafted free- agent, he's not half bad. Maybe the powers to be can finally give him a fair deal to showcase what he truely is. A true runner that has speed, power, vision and a heart.

Any coach in his right mind would never cut Ivory loose at 100%, in practice, on his defense. You'd be risking injury to the likes of Harper, Jenkins and such.

However, the defensive players are free to strip the football at 100% in practice. Any player close enough to strip a football from Ivory is probably laying on his back at some point during the stripping process. He's COMBATIVE. LOL

I'm happy with the way both have been playing. Ivory was clearly the spark that got things going, though.

I think Ivory's "showings" have sparked Ingram a little bit. Ingram seems to now run like a bulldozer. Not big numbers yet from Ingram but I think this is the "push" he needs.
