Ingram, Ivory, Thomas, and Sproles

All four are super-talented running backs and specialty playmakers, and all of them are healthy for the first time this season.  This is a great problem for the Saints to have.

I feel really good about the Saints at this point in the season.  They are one game ahead of Atlanta in their Conference, and have the edge over Atlanta in a tie-breaker having beaten the Dirty Birds earlier in the season.  When they play the Giants on Monday night in the Superdome, they will have come off of a bye week that will have afforded them more than two weeks worth of rest.  Four of their last six games are at home.  They are in the best position to make a sustained run not only for their conference title, but also to challenge the 49ers for a bye week, especially since one of their home games is against the 49ers.

When it comes to the probability of post-season play, the Saints are in a good place.
