Running game vs 49ers

Must win game for us this week and every week following

Our running game has been on a tear recently, we have rushed for 140+ yards each of the last 3 weeks
It will be tough to do vs 49ers, they have a very good D, but it's vital that we don't give up on the running game, if we give up on the running game, the 49ers D line will tear us apart, we have to stay comitted

Here's my poll question how do you think our running game does and who will be our leading rusher?

I've set it so you can choose more than one option, lets hear you choices

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I would like to see Ingram exhaust that defense and explode for a 100+ yard game. Prob is the 49er defense is stout. This is gonna be a tough game.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I say we throw the whole running game book at'em and just wear them out. 49ers do have a stout D but they need to go down. Despite our lost to them with 5 turnovers we still could have won that game. I know they were saying "we threw everything at them and they still coming" in Bart Scott voice "CAN'T WAIT!! ''

They were getting run on MN until things got away. We'll be fine.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I went with Ivory... This guy is amazing if given half the chance as everyone else.
However if Sproles is activated.. does this mean Ivory is de-activated? Again?

Re: Running game vs 49ers

Their run defense has been exposed a few times this year. They can be run on. Ahmad Bradshaw, Steven Jackson and Marshawn Lynch have all run for over 100 yards on them. They have just played some teams with average to below-average RB's. We have a stable of horses that they have to contend with. It won't be the time to get cute. Like BigEasy said, the Saints just need to go right at them and wear them out. Keep it balanced, but give them heavy doses of PT, Ivory, and Ingram. Ball security is going to play a huge factor in this game. If the Saints can win the turnover battle, they can win this game. The running game is going to have to come up huge!

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I think Ivory will break of an 40+ yarder early in the game that will set the tone for us running the ball.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

We lost the turn over battle last year and still almost won. However it's easier to blame Greg Williams...
We can win this one!!!

Re: Running game vs 49ers

I went with PT on this one, he has a lot of unfinished buisness with the 49ers. Although a real good dose of Dr. Ivory could give them fits. I personally don't think Ingram will do as well but I hope I'm wrong. We face them with a healthy backfied and I can see us gaining 150 on the ground.

Re: Running game vs 49ers

Checked some stats and found the key to beating the 49ers. We HAVE to get the run game going.

Of the 4 teams the 49ers allowed over 100 rushing, they only won 1 and tied the other. The only one they won was against the Seahawks(136yds rushing).

They lost against Vikings(146yds rushing), Giants(149yds rushing) and tied the Rams(159yds rushing).

So it seems to me that its imperative to pound the rock and pound it often.

Oh and I went with PT cruiser. He wants some payback!!
