Chris Ivory's status with New Orleans Saints gaining attention

However, at a press conference yesterday interim head coach Joe Vitt made a simple but bold statement when he proclaimed that,

Chris ain’t going nowhere.

Of course no team wants to show their hand and this could be a bit of posturing by the club to keep things under wraps about a possible trade.  The only way to see if this isn’t true is to watch Ivory’s playing status for this Sunday.

The Saints rank dead last in rushing in the NFL(avg 76.2/game) and although Ingram ranks second in total yards, he only averages 2.9 per carry.  Thomas averages 4.3 yards per carry and Sproles 5.4 per carry.

The other mark on Ingram is that even though he’s second in rushing stats, Thomas and Sproles are a dual threat in the passing game as well and used in screen plays.  Ingram however has one reception for -1 yard.  Not that great for a first rounder who the Saints traded up for.

This leaves fans screaming for the Saints to at least try Ivory and see what he can do to inject some type of fire into the run game.  At this point, what is there really left to lose in that department?

    …Ivory BETTER play this Sunday night! ***WHO-DAT’?!!!***

    • Larry James

      They need to play him Mark Ingram haven’t did anything great in his run yet. Ivory is a better player than Ingram, and Ivory run harder.

    Ivory is the better runner, but he fumbles a lot and he need to be able to past protect for Brees.

    • Larry James

      They still need to play Chris Ivory he been on the bench from the beginning of regular season. I think he has learn his job the bench will make them are break them. I believe Ivory will play some ball now he not a player that always fumble the ball. Plus he’s a hard runner turn him a loss, and put Mark Ingram on the bench for a while this will bring a change because the Saints give up to much for Ingram to be playing like he are. Thomas running harder than Ingram, when you see the way Ray Rice run for the Ravens this is the way Ingram suppose to run the same way he ran in college no excuse.

        I agree, he will get some playing time now. I don’t care who you put back there if the offensive line is not opening any wholes it’s going to be hard for any running back, the offensive line have to run block point blank.

          I agree I think they will get better they starting I speak. I need for them to run 12 straight games.
