Re: Saints to 'evaluate' Khiry Robinson's snaps

Part of the reason I think Robinson (and Ivory before him, and PT before them) have been so successful is that they were on college teams where the offensive line wasn't necessarily making huge holes for them to run through. So coming to the NFL is not such a transition.

Seems the opposite could also be true when you look at guys like Ingram and Richardson, and early-career Reggie Bush, they run behind lines that dominate, so when they come to the NFL all of a sudden they don't see any holes to run through so they struggle.

What's not to be sold on.. he produced time and time again. Preseason.. then vs starters. + No fumbles. what does he need to do? 80 yrd TD run like AP?

I love a good love affair as much as the next guy. But let's wait until we have a good body of work to annoint Robinson. PT is still a more complete back in my opinion. And Robinson can't do what Spoles can do. So Sean will be happy to know that I agree with him. Give Robinson more snaps and let's see if he can hanlde things.

I would feed the ball to him 15-20 times a game. The guy looks good he just needs more touches. It would keep D's in tighter and open up the passing game. A few screens to him would not hurt a thing either, I would like to see him in open field, not just hand offs.

The same thing was said about Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory too.

Obviously we shouldn't bench PT and Sproles and give the guy 25 carries, but he certainly has shown enough to warrant more touches.

Pass protection and ball security are probably 1st and foremost on Payton's mind. Unfortunately we could find out the hard way that he wasn't ready yet.

This is the only issue with Robinson. He may be great in protection but we have't seen that yet. To average 5.4ypc behind this line is awesome, and you have to consider he is only getting the ball in running time/formations, just makes that 5.4ypc more impressive.
