Sean Payton Unsure How He Will Deal With Saints’ Crowded Backfield

For the first time all season, all four of the New Orleans Saints' top four tailbacks are healthy, and that gives head coach Sean Payton a little bit of a problem.

Payton hasn't said how the Saints will deal with the situation when they take on the New York Giants on Monday night.

Beyond The Mic: Ivory’s Return Begs Questions

New Orleans Saints RB Chris Ivory led the team in rushing a year ago as a rookie. His bruising style as a runner took its toll however, and he had two offseason surgeries. As a result, he's spent the beginning of the season on the PUP list. That will change next week, as he should be activated to the 53 man roster. How will coach Sean Payton deal with an already crowded backfield?

Grades For NFL First-Round Draft Choices

The New Orleans Saints will indeed not be bashful about letting the football fly through the air this year, but they also want some balance with a solid running game.

Saints Looking For Better Ground Attack This Year

The NFL has undoubtedly become more of a passing league over the years, but that doesn't mean a team doesn't have to have a solid running game to be successful.

The New Orleans Saints realize this, and took steps to correct what they perceived as an area that needed improvement over 2010.
