How much of that yardage was on QB scrambles? I think that yardage would have to be subtracted as it is abnormal (not from RBs).

Re: RB by committee or RB by play?

until Ingram learns how to catch and run a screen play he makes the offense predictable

Pierre and Khiry on the screen plays
and whatever we come up with for Cooks

He already knows how to run a screen, at least as well as Khiry Robinson does.

Comparing any NFL player's screen talents to Pierre Thomas is useless. He's the best in the entire NFL.

Re: RB by committee or RB by play?

Wait... You want us to tell Payton how to run the offense?

43 yards by the QBs. That is a lot. But that's still 117 from the RBs which is very good.

80 yards were gained by Ingram, Robinson and PT. Just my opinion but I think they would've gained a lot more if they'd stayed in for 4 quarters behind the starting Oline. Cadet also had 31 more yards. I think one of the other backs would've gotten those yards in a regular season game. (assuming Cadet wasn't activated)

By comparison, we've averaged...
92.1 yards last season
98.6 in 2012
132.9 in 2011
94.9 in 2010
131.6 in 2009
99.6 in 2008
91.6 in 2007
110.1 in 2006

If we get 117 rushing yards a game this year, we'll be in really nice shape.

Re: RB by committee or RB by play?

I am a big believer in a primary back, and then roll backs. Part of the issue with the Saints is they currently do not have a proven primary back. Lets be honest, Deuce has never been replaced, he could do it all, with Reggie Bush being that change of pace and home run guy. Ingram was drafted with the intention of being that primary back, but for whatever reason that hasn't panned out, so thus we see the committee.

While I'm the first to admit I've never been an ingram fan, I do believe he has decent hands. He actually caught a lot of passes at bama when he was given a chance. If he's going to be in the game he needs to be somewhat of a threat to catch. At the very least, he's as capable as anyone at catching a pass out in the flat or catching a short screen pass.
