Buffalo tried that and he battled injuries; everyone wants to give him the ball but when screens are not working; what do you do?
I understand that. My problem is the Saints knew this before they signed him. They signed him as a specialist. My question is why aren't they using him for what they signed him for. It's a waste of money. Hell Murphy could do the job for Spiller if this was the vision they had for him and we could of used that money on defense. And if we are talking about health Hightower has a long injury history in this league. Bad free agent signings and bad drafting, not this rookie class though, has put us in this position.

That's easy; the offensive line has been pretty damn bad this year...

Re: Give it to Mark Ingram for becoming irreplaceable for New Orleans Saints

I'm debating my 3rd RB on my fantasy team.

Who will get me more points today? CJ Spiller, who may see some action, or Mark Ingram who isn't playing.

Ingram has improved especially in the passing game

But when out there I saw Khiry Robinson making the difference

Way to go Hightower

All I know is that Tim Hightower got the yards and the first downs when we really needed them. He ran hard.

I don't know if you're serious, but I do like the idea of giving MM some touches.
I like these scat back types in our offense of scheme

At least he see SP will always expect the offense to win a game by stuffing it down a teams throat and just pound the rock

I have to agree , its not only that game, he could have a highlight reel of failures with 4th and even 3rd and inches, I am going to take critique on this but he just runs to damn straight up to be that 3rd and inches back. give him a nice block and hole to run and he can hit a seam and go like a lot this year.he had a hell of a year to be honest. but!
