Week 3 Practice Report and more

As the game against the Cardinals gets closer, the Saints have several items on their to do list that they haven’t accomplished yet. Running game, pass protection, red zone problems and injuries. It will be interesting to see which one of these things can get checked off after this weeks game.

I’m pretty sure everyone has their list prioritized but for me the biggest item to fix is the running game. When it gets better it can open up everything else on the list except the injury report. The biggest question I have is how the Saints will fix the running game, I have no doubt that it will get fixed because that is one part of the game that Coach Payton underlined before the season started.

Will the carries be redistributed? Will Thomas start seeing the majority of the time between him and Ingram? I guess we’ll find out on Sunday.

Big thanks to Matt Loede for passing along the practice report for this week. Here it is:
