This guy fits our #1 offense and would certainly open thing up.

He's shifty as hell, good balance and can run between the tackles

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

Gordon is a real good back there is no doubt about it but I'm with Mitch on this our line has to get fixed fixed first. Pressure up the middle killed us in too many games this year and Brees watched his pocket collapse in his face way to many times.

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

Why not Gordon AND Ingram?

RB's don't cost that much. Ingram's looking at about 4mill/season on average.
Gordon would be cheap for his 1st 4 years.

It doesn't matter what RB we get if we don't fix the O line, Ingram looked great when he wasn't getting hit by 3 players in the backfield.

Gordon would be exactly the same, he may be a great player but our O line is garbage.

Re: Unsign Ingram and Draft....

I'm ready to shift our offense into a more run based system. Less passing, more running, more ball control, a better rested defense = a better chance of success. Over the last decade the NFL has become more passing oriented and teams have shifted towards more two backs systems... I think that will change back gradually imo. Players were getting smaller and faster at the position so teams tried to incorporate that thunder lightning approach. But with guys like Le'Veon Bell, Eddie Lacy, Jeremy Hill, and soon Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley in recent years, I think we'll start seeing a change. Big, strong, fast, bell cow type franchise backs. We need to get back to playing smash mouth football. That's what OL love to do... that's what defenses like to see. It'll also help preserve Drew Brees.

I'd love to have Melvin Gordon. I love Melvin Gordon. He's a damn beast. I've probably watched 80 percent of his games this year. He's special.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

That won't be smart. Gordon is NFL ready feature back with huge upside. Those two can't split carries. It would hurt both players and you have Robinson also.

All this.

We want a TEAM, balanced team, that can do it any which way against whoever.
