Make them pay by over covering him until they stop... then run out the game clock.

Sounds wonderful to me.

I agree. If they wanna worry about taking Kamara away then let them. Iíd break out a brand new formation.

I Form with no TE. Instead put Cook at FB. Murray at RB. Kamara and Smith on the outside. Thomas in the slot. Letís see where their focus goes then.

Yea... when you start 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage, it becomes difficult to even get looked at.

Re: Kamara

Slightly off topic but did anyone catch those screen passes from Brees to L train Murray? This dude was moving with a head of steam & you could see the cornerback "bracing" for the collision. LM in the open field with momentum, speed and power ... whew!

That's big boy football right there .

Re: Kamara

Love me some of “The LM Train” with a full head of steam downhill.

Laying down on the track to take down LM in open space. I would say Kittle or Kelce is worse but Force = mass X acceleration. LM is a lot faster.

Re: Kamara

Kamara obviously is having his worst year of his young career.

With that said, I hope we don't sign him to a big contract. Nothing against him personally, I just do not agree with paying big bucks for RBs. The running game is 90% about the O-line/scheme and 10% about who is carrying the ball.

There are some talking heads already starting rumors that Kamara may hold out next year for a big payday. If that's the case, let the guy walk and spend the money upfront for a new UDFA/Rookie RB that Payton will make look good.

The Saints are 0-42 when running the ball less than 15 times in a game.

I believe there will be. If we dont see anything durrng the play offs, I will come right back here and humbly admit my errors. Payton has always been a chess player, why all of a sudden play checkers? Do we need Kamara creativity for the Colts?

I know we want the #1 seed but not at the risk of tipping our playoff hand.

Re: Kamara

I still say Payton is saving him for the playoffs. Teams are honing in on him but we are still beating them or showing we can win without him.

Not much GL work now, but just wait. Coaches work off of stats. Stats will say he seldom gets the ball but he will.

Kamara

I donít mind defences focusing on Kamara as it gives us more looks downfield. Without him and Brees probably only throws at 80%

I suspect an order will be restored where defences need to cover and place more focus on our receiving threats which will give Kamara more space. He will be fine and I think he is warming to a huge playoff run.
