Running game vs 49ers

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ivory looked scared and tentative, did not do very well at all against the 49ers defense last year, after Pierre went out... I kinda think Pierre was being used lightly and rested a bit last week, against the Raiders, for ...

Re: Running game vs 49ers

Ivory looked scared and tentative, did not do very well at all against the 49ers defense last year, after Pierre went out... I kinda think Pierre was being used lightly and rested a bit last week, against the Raiders, for the specific purpose of saving him up for THIS game. Pierre is still THE guy that can pick up the entire Saints offense and carry it on his shoulders down the field.

Also, it doesn't take mountains of rushing yards to beat the 49ers; just enough to slow them down and open up the pass. The important thing is to stick with it. The Giants had only like 10 or 15 or 20 yards rushing in the first half, some really pathetic number like that..but they stuck with it and that opened up the pass for them, when they needed it. If the Saints do that giddy, jittery, panicky thing, of giving up on the run completely after the first 12 plays, then the game is gonna be over right there, no question about it. STICK WITH IT!

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I fully agree that the commitment to the run has to be there even if it does not start out productive. Play action is always our best passing attack positive factor. We've proven many times we are more easily beatable when we become one dimensional.

I look for us to utilize alot of quick plays that always generate positive yards. Little WR and TE screens to mimic help in our run game, pump fake draws to stutter the LBer gap fills. Niners are such a tough defense because they really don't have a weakness. They can pressure with 4, they can cover on all levels and they tackle aggressive and efficiently. It takes individuals to just be their best to beat them.

I think they might let Pierre T. out of his cage now. He hasn't been getting as many carry's as he used to. Watch him go.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I'm looking forward to a Chris Ivory / Alton Smith collision about 10 yards downfield. We'll see who is scared and tentative then.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

Last time we played 49ers, Saints and PT ran it down their throats. 49ers #1 defense could not stop PT. Then he got taken out with a concussion at the end of the 1st drive. I think PT is our best RB vs 49ers.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I think its important to have hard bruisers like Ivory and PT pound that front defensive line.

This is where it begins to open up both Pass and Run.

I believe the tone is going to be set on the Saints 1st play, the Saints first play should be Pass.

Coin Flips is basically what both sides use, offense may think Run, defense of 49ers may think pass, its winning those flips that win the game.
