Saints to 'evaluate' Khiry Robinson's snaps

Saints to 'evaluate' Khiry Robinson's snapsby Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Saints have a pass-heavy offense led by quarterback Drew Brees, which means the run game often takes a back seat. The Saints rank 23rd in rushing offense (86.7 yards per game) and 28th in yards per carry (3.4).

However, the Saints seem to have something brewing in rookie running back Khiry Robinson. Although the Saints backfield is loaded with talent (Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram), Robinson is making the most of his limited work. He is second on the team in rushing yards (137) and is averaging a team-high 5.3 yards per carry.

Coach Sean Payton is certainly paying attention to Robinson's effectiveness in the run game.

"He's been explosive. He's been tough," Payton said, per The Times-Picayune. "He's been hardnosed and we will continue to look at his snaps and evaluate how he fits in each game plan."

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

He's gained yards behind a questionable O line, stayed healthy and protected the football everytime he's had it

Definitely increase his workload, he and PT run similar, with their shoulders down and always manage to maintain their balance after initial contact

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

Please evaluate the crap out of it, because at the end of the day:

1) 26 carries
2) 5.3 yds per carry
3) 0 fumbles

For me to feel the "next-coming-of-PT-kind-of-good", he needs to have these numbers after 100 touches. But considering the Sam's sample size we've gotten so far, I'm loving this dude. If he learns the pass protection aspect along with these kind of rushing numbers, I might spontaneously combust in my recliner.

Yep Dizz, thats exactly why he reminds me so much more of a young PT than Ivory. Great feet.

The guy shows good vision and good balance. They need to stick with the hot hand. I get more impressed with him with every game, seems to run better when you keep feeding him the ball.

I was impressed with him in the last game. He's hungry and you can tell by the way he runs. The kid wants to break it loose. Geaux Khiry!!
