We have a running game after all
You can say it was giving chris ivory the ball that got our run game going

Im just happy that all the backs contributed, especially ingram who looked like freaking PT on that 23 yard run, pinballing off defenders and keeping his legs churning

ingram had 7 rushes for 44 yards with an average of 6.3 yards per rush

Ivory 10 rushes for 48 yards and the TD

PT 6 rushes for 44 yards

even though its not a huge total, all of our backs contributed and complimented eachother well

130+ rushing yards is going to win you games

I hope ingram continues to play with that fire he showed last night

Time for us to make a run, if we can it will be with a consistent run game

May be the last defense we face that has no defensive coordinator to speak of.

We'll see. We need to beat Atlanta.

Our defense will prevent that from happening.

Everyone has a run game against Philly. You guys are funny you beat a garbage team like Bucs and say your D is coming around, get smashed by Denver and say the D is garbage, beat the Iigles and think your D is great and run game is back. lol

Re: We have a running game after all
It's called being a fan genius. When they do something positive, you become hopeful, encouraged, and supportive. When they play terribly, they get dissected and *****ed at. It's kind of being a parent in a sense. I don't see the humor in it at all.

And just to clarify, the majority of this board believe the defense sucks... have and still does. It doesn't change the fact they can be encouraged by the results from last night. Profootball Focus ranks our offensive line as a top 10 run blocking line(top 6 actually). The results haven't been there because we haven't been dedicated to it... but we can run the ball if we do. After all, this was the same team that ranked 6 last year in rushing... and we basically have the same personnel here.

Next time you come in a thread and try to troll, TRY HARDER.

PT was PT - dude is a warrior - enough said.

Chris Ivory played well.

Mark Ingram saw Ivory play well and imagined life on the inactive list...

Hey "Saintkiller" - just wait to hear what we say about Atlanta come playoff time.

Re: We have a running game after all
The Saints actually tried to run the ball and have some balance. Amazing how actually using your great talent at RB pays off. Doh!

Re: We have a running game after all
Since RB is by committee all need to be involved; after catching a few dump off passes Ingram may not be looked at as just running the ball; Ivory stays in beast-mode but did anyone else notice how he holds the ball - still very loosely, PT is PT (still the best out the bunch) and other than the fumble on the KO return Cadet did OK for the amount of time he was in... If we could get this type of performance against the Falcons - they will have their 1st lost - in the words of BART SCOTT "CAN'T WAIT"!!!!!
