Ben Tate takes a shot at Mark Ingram while discussing Johnny Manziel

Cleveland Browns running back Ben Tate thinks that people should calm down with all the Johnny Manziel talk. Tate who signed with the Browns back in May thinks that the media covers Manziel too much.

Tate also thinks that Manziel has to unseat Brian Hoyer as the starter first which is true. But when Tate tried to explained his Heisman theory, he took a shot at New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram in the process.


ďHe had success early in his career when he was at (Texas) A&M,Ē Tate said. ĒHe won the Heisman or whatever. But there are lots of people that have won the Heisman. I mean, Mark Ingram won the Heisman, and I donít see everyone all excited when he got to the league.

With Tate coming out of Auburn and Ingram from Alabama, he could just be throwing shots because of their respective schools. But regardless of any of that, itís 100% true that Ingram hasnít lived up to the expectations of being a first round pick.

I've heard Tate talk a lot while in Houston. Not the brightest candle in the cake.

Fact is, most Heisman winners don't do well in the NFL. Ingram certainly isn't the exception

It depends on how you define GREAT. If it's based upon individual achievements, then Barry Sanders. Based upon team achievements ie. Super Bowl wins, then it's Roger Staubach.

We will get our hands on Ben Tate if he starts......... Ingram will get his chance to respond on field against one of the better defenses in the league....

Ben Tate bad mouthing another player? He hasn't exactly lit the NFL on fire since he has been in the league. Just play ball and quit chirping BT.
