I think we need a power back but to even go further left with it if a guy like Le'Veon Bell 6 '2 240 could come in and develop into a Vonta Leach type blocker then I think that would compliment our pass first Offense the best when we turn to the run game.
Jed Collins is the best pass catching FB in the NFL and thats why we have him. But I think if Ingram Thomas Sproles had a beastly blocking FB that would benefit them alot on run plays.
But as I said I do feel that a real power back a Eddie George slow ground and pound guy would be just the change of pace we need to eat clock when this pass first offense gets up in the score.
Lets talk overkill or being wasteful if you will its when you have Brees an elite QB but you are trying to do too much at RB. Somebody is gonna be under utilized. So yes it would be great to have one Stud at RB but I gurantee you with Brees at QB he'd be underused too often. We don't even use the ones we have enough we are better suited with RB by committee for different situations if thats the case. Because if we had one total package RB that could do it all he wouldnt be on the team long anyway he'd be worse than Bush in his feeling towards gameplan.
We have Sproles he can take it to the house at anytime
Pierre can do it all
Ingram can read and run for good gains if the holes are there
An all out bruiser would compliment this offense when its clock management time.
But going further along these line if our current Backs had a beastly FB to follow that would benefit this Offense most.
