Khiry Robinson runs nasty

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't understand how anyone could be excited about the "performance" Robinson put out in the last, meaningless drive of a game that was over 2 series before. Would my grandmother gotten the same level of props, because she's dead ...

Re: Khiry Robinson runs nasty

I don't understand how anyone could be excited about the "performance" Robinson put out in the last, meaningless drive of a game that was over 2 series before. Would my grandmother gotten the same level of props, because she's dead and I know she could have hit the holes just as fast.

Further, all you MI haters are transparently twofaced when presented the facts that neither Sproles nor PI could run in any game this season either.

Face it, it's an o-line and scheme problem, not an RB problem. For some reason that escapes Payton and his staff, nobody, NOBODY is fooled by our pitiful excuses for disguises of run plays.

Not cool to talk bad about the dead.. I believe that Khiry just gives us hope kinda like a shiny new toy when your tired of the old one. Khiry may fall short like MI but I like others want togive him tthat chance.

Are these stats through 3 games of each season?

Re: Khiry Robinson runs nasty

Payton is taking baby steps with Khiry and it's good coaching. He now has some successful garbage time action. Perhaps the next step is just to throw him in for a carry or two in power sets in the first or second quarter as a quick change of pace. See how he does. Then try him in a few short-yardage situations and see how he responds. Then if he does well, start using him more frequently in the first half and power-run with him on first and second downs until we reach a third down, then switch to PT/Sproles for the rest of the drive. Toward the end of the season, begin to slowly find out if he can catch and pass-protect. That is essentially what we did with Ivory from what I remember.

2011 and 12 are entire seasons. 2013 is just the first two games. It's pretty easy to get those first 3 games of the season but I need to at least pretend I'm working. I'll get those numbers later.

Just my opinion,
I think pass protection comes first. If we only bring him in to run the ball, every team will stack the box against him. I think that's part of Ingram's problem. And if he can't pass protect when he's supposed to, then we don't want him back there.

Putting him in at the end of the game was LOW RISK HIGH REWARD, and I'm sorry but that is good coaching. Putting Khiry in on the 4 yard line is HIGH RISK LOW REWARD, the exact opposite of what kind of situations you want to put him in.
They are all rookies at one time, drafted or not and the sooner you put it in their hands to see them in action the better. If it was 4th and inches with the game on the line I had rather put it in someones hands before pass but that's just me I like smash mouth football. Either way you make it or you don't, rookie or vet. I say play the guy now!!
