little bit more than backup hype. they have won both games that he rushed for 100 yards. He runs harder than Ingram and seems like he is more elusive.Hes not wrong... Hightower played fine for a backup but he certainly wasn't good. He got what was blocked but lacks Ingrams ability in the passing game. I don't disagree with SP decision because I think Ingram has looked a little lackadaisical not showing the same passion he has shown when at his best. We won and he was a big part of the win but I truly think Ingram or Lasco would have done similarly with that number of carried. This is nothing more than backup hype.
Sounds great but Ivory just learned how to pass protect in the past couple of seasons and has had trouble staying health-- more so than Ingram. Robinson was also having trouble pass protecting when with the Saints.Its been true since Payton has been here and has really been obvious with ingram.
Imagine a backfield with Ivory, Robinson, and Sproles.
