Imagine if the New Orleans Saints were successful in their reported attempt to acquire Marshawn Lynch

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Seattle uses him the right way, we wouldn't. We use PT and Sproles correctly but get away from the run when Ingram and Robinson produce in straight up handoffs. We would waste Lynch's talent....

Sure we would. Denver is a pass first team as much as the Saints

Passing Att
Payton Manning 675
Drew Brees 651

Rushing Att
Denver 461
Saints 391

Lynch would get his 240 (What Moreno got) , Ingram would get his 100, Sproles/Robinson/Cadet/PT (which ever we keep) gets 50.

Sean Payton runs the ball when we can run it.
2009 - 461 4.5 YPC
2011 - 431 4.9 YPC

Since 2007 in all seasons that we ave less than 4.5 YPC under Sean Payton we had less than 390 ATT, in all Seasons over 4.5 YPC we had more than 430 att.

He looks at productivity not gross numbers. The better we run, the more we run.. Not vice versa.

I disagree, you have to game plan for what works reliably. Ingram was not reliably good week in and out and Robinson was used sporadically.

We had injuries to Ingram, 1/2 the offensive line, Pierre Thomas... Go back through the play by plays... Sean didnt just stop using them, he stopped using them when they stopped successfully running consistently, and our o-line stopped blocking consistently. (for the most part)

Deuce got his carries. We haven't had a Marshawn Lynch caliber of back to warrant those carries since Deuce was in his prime. If you think Pierre Thomas or Sproles could handle running the ball as often as Lynch, or are as talented and deserving you're crazy.

This young kid Robinson might make some people forget about him.

That would not be a bad thing. We need a power runner to show up every game even if it was for 80 tough, hard fought yards a game that at least wears down the D.

Re: Imagine if the New Orleans Saints were successful in their reported attempt to acquire Marshawn Lynch

Honestly these hind sight news articles from years back are the only reason anyone other than Sproles/Robinson/Thomas/Cadet/Ingram are being thought or talked about.

Other than nothing else to write about, i am not sure why Holder even wrote and published the piece.

Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda means nothing. There is no way of knowing how he would have preformed. Realize how many discussions there would be if we went back and unearthed every player the Saints tried to get but didnt?

Here is the wash and one thing that I do know. It would have been at the expense of Robert Meachem our first round pick and would have cost us Pierre Thomas who we picked up that year in free agency. Sorry I am not willing to give up a Super Bowl for Marchawn Lynch.

Now there is your painted picture.
