re: NFL Thread: RAVENS SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS
Pierre Thomas is the best all around running back the Saints have. Excellent at screens and other routes out of the backfield, a real solid, hard runner, and superb at pass blocking. You talk about a guy who rarely goes down at first contact and an uncanny ability to stay upright and always move forward? It's him.
Ingram is improving though, without doubt. If his only season with Payton is any indication, he's going to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 carries a game minimum. Hopefully we find a way to unload Chris Ivory for a draft pick, which would be one less person requiring touches.
The Saints have a wealth of riches at running back. Thomas, Sproles, and Ingram should be getting the spread of touches - in that order. Ingram should be getting the majority of carries, though.
