My concerns are numerous.

Swapping out a LT
DLP back slid a little last year.....I don't know if teams game planned against him or not
Our current RT is subpar in my book and needs to be replaced
All of our RTs are unproven and have question marks
We have a new O-line coach
We have a new RB coach
Our two best backs are getting older
Our "feature" back has been under achieving
Ivory is no longer a Saint

But we do have coach Payton back so I'm not worried.

Re: 2013 Running Game concerns

I like the move.

Anyone with ANY chance of contributing to the team should be looked at

That would be Great if we were avg 12.3 per pass

Re: 2013 Running Game concerns

As great as a mastermind of the offense SP is, seeing ingram get a running play up the middle, get smacked at the line and then come to sideline after one play annoys the hell out of me

Like its been said, make a decision and stick with it, sure RB rotation is good but not every damn play!

Yep i agree but i am putting our OC in the mix. he needs to bounce back from last year and get better.

I predict that no matter how productive Ingram is or is not we will have him stuffed down our throats because he is a number one pick. so somethings wont change.

PT will pace the side lines wonder why he is not in while still being the saints best back that fits this offense. maybe they save him for that playoff push? nah do not buy it

Ingram will once again be wasted because the saints did not address the OL to fit his style. His only hope is to get involved in the passing game and keep teams from stacking the box

The saints will once again pass for first on third short more than they will convert with the run game

On a 4th and inches I sure will miss Ivory who could turn it in to a positive with the D knowing who gets it.

There has to be a commitment and a rhythm to the running game - Carmichael still does not grasp this concept...

But I agree, with our offense, we need five (5) backs on the active roster - just in case a Seattle Scenario presents itself, again...

The interior offensive line is fine, in fact, it is among the elite in both run and pass...

It's our Tackles that have not been up to par - but Armstead should help correct that and we have some nice battles setting up at Right Tackle...

Ingram needs to check his "tells" and work to gain the coaches' confidence in the passing game to be worthy of his first round pick - but I believe he's got the talent to do it...

I see comments about how injury-prone Ivory was and yet he did some of the toughest running - hoping Ingram can pick up the slack and bust some of those 20+yard back breaking runs...

Re: 2013 Running Game concerns

I'm not really concerned about our RB rotation. I think with the loss of Ivory we are fine. The offensive line is the only question mark for me. Especially the tackles.
