Saints Can Win Without Running Game

It may be a myth that the New Orleans Saints can’t repeat as Super Bowl Champions, without a running game. Jeff Macolino, of associatedcontent.com, has the story, below.

It was announced Wednesday that the New Orleans Saints placed running back Pierre Thomas on injured reserve, meaning that the defending champions will be without their top two runners from the past season (rookie Chris Ivory was placed on IR earlier this week). Reggie Bush, who looked very impressive in Week 17 against Tampa Bay, is the top running threat remaining in the New Orleans backfield. Bush is joined with veteran Julius Jones the only other player who had carries as a running back this season.

So does this news mean that the Saints are toast for the upcoming postseason? It’s always said that a good defense and running game is what is needed to win championships. But if any team proved that a great running attack is not needed to take home the title, it’s those very same Saints.
