Re: 2014: Who will lead the Saints in rushing?

I don't think we will draft a RB this year. Maybe pick up an UDFA, but not draft.

Too many changes from the status quo already for me to feel like there aren't some more changes to Paytons plan this season coming, mainly at the ground game. it will still be Rb by committee, but not a huge committee.

We started carrying extra RBs because we got burnt one year... Well those extra RBs meant Payton got burnt in 2013 because of a lack of offensive line depth. We presently have 5 ball carriers on this team.

"Ball carrier?" Hmmm, I see a class action lawsuit here. The equipment managers all carry balls do they get elite pay? Better get Drew to explain that!

I'm not going to blast that statment. Good job.

I love Drew but he really needs to shut his mouth and enjoy his vacation.

Ingram will be fed the ball a lot more to start the season. But I have a really great feeling about Robinson. I think he is going to be special.

Ingram will start the first 4-6 games, then Khiry will take over as #1 on 1st and 2nd down with Pierre on 3rd. If Khiry were to open the season as the starter, he'd have 1300 yards, especially in what appears to be an offense recommitted to the run this season. Let's hope all three can stay healthy.

Khiry - 850
Mark - 575
Pierre - 450
Lorig - 100

This is what I was thinking. The only question is will they feed Ingram knowing that he is a FA next year. I would love to see a RB distance himself in camp but it's doubtful. Ingram and Robinson ran like beasts late in the season but PT is steady all year. Crap, who knows!
