Could the Saints Employ a Three RB Set in 2009?

According to coach Sean Payton, could the Saints could employ a three-RB set at times in the 2009 season?

In the wake of Mike Bell’s breakout performance against the Houston Texans, the Saints now have a good problem on their hands. They have not one, not two, but three running backs capable of carrying the load on any given Sunday. Bell’s 10-carry, 100-yard performance Saturday was that good. In just one half, the former Texans and Broncos castoff didn’t just cement the No. 3 job heading into the regular season. He lowered his shoulder and plowed his way into the backfield picture with Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas. “I think so,” Saints Coach Sean Payton said Wednesday when asked if the club might employ a three-back rotation this season.
