Should Khiry Robinson Start for the Saints?

Is Khiry Robinson the answer to the New Orleans Saints rushing woes?

Robinson had a great game against New England to say the least. He averaged a ridiculous 7.6 yards per carry on his way to 53 yards and a touchdown against what is a very underrated Patriots defense.

So the question is certainly worth asking.

In fact, Robinson has made Mark Ingram (remember him?) an afterthought. Pierre Thomas is a complete player but has been quiet all year. Darren Sproles has his role in the offense and will remain productive, but a consistent presence is necessary to add another dimension to that offense.

At this point it looks like Robinson is that guy.

The Saints offense is not exactly hurting thanks to Drew Brees, but the presence of a running game would make things even easier. Robinson has prove he has what it takes after a slow adaption to the NFL game.

Is it time Robinson sees the majority of the snaps out of the Saints backfield?

    It was time for Robinson to start in game one. I can’t understand why we stopped running in a series where we were gaining at least 4 yards on every play and went back to passing. It seems that we can’t stick with a running game even when it’s working.

    cause sean peyton is a meat head when it comes to running backs, everything else he’s a great coach If I had a kid rushing for 7.7 yrds a carry I will be saying get u ass out there and run, Mark Ingram is slow and fat.

    What are we gonna lose? I would start him until he proves otherwise.

    Look at the Packers. They’ve become a more complete team with a running game this year. Even without Cobb, Jones, and Finley. Being able to run clock off late in games is a nice thing.
