Ingram is going to be a bust!
 
If his first NFL carry has anything to do with it. ;)

Saints rookie Mark Ingram receives harsh welcome to NFL in first full practice


METAIRIE – Though the third practice of training camp hardly counts, prized rookie running back Mark Ingram’s first professional carry with the New Orleans Saints left much to be desired Sunday morning.

After being stopped for a loss around left end, the 2009 Heisman Trophy winner from Alabama and the team’s second of two first-round draft picks, not only lost the ball but he also lost his helmet.

Saints’ veteran middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma made the strip and scoop. There is some dispute as to who unhinged Ingram’s helmet. Some observers cite Vilma (that would give him the trifecta), others give the nod to free safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Moments later, Saints Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams’ added insult to Ingram’s bruised ego: “Welcome to the NFL! … Welcome! … Welcome! … Welcome!’’

“I thought the play was over,’’ Ingram explained. “I should have buttoned up but I didn’t. It is what it is. It’s all a learning experience for me. I made sure it didn’t happen again.’’
Sunday morning’s workout was Ingram’s first of training camp. He missed the first two workouts while his agent, Joel Segal, and team officials worked on a contract.

Welcome to the NFL Mark.

I love it. He'll fit in just fine.

Forever; I agree, I hope the Saints cut their losses early and are seeking a trade for an OLB and DT. :)

I'll go first.

Reggie Bush is better than Mark Ingram.

Whew... glad I got that out the way.

Ingram can't hold Reggie's jock.

Reggie single-handedly won the Superbowl for us, and he demanded triple coverage every time he was on the field. We scored 14 more points per game when Reggie was on the field.

Payton was an idiot for using him so sparingly, and Brees was a moron for not feeding him the ball on every play.

Not using Reggie was the ONLY reason we didn't win more Superbowls over the last 5 years.

This Ingram punk will be the Ryan Leaf of running backs.

All little early to panic. If he'd torn his ACL on that carry we might have something to worry about.

What's with all the haters? Reggie Bush has moved on and so should we. Ingram shows a lot of promise despite what happened on his FIRST DAY at training camp. Here's a little something if saw on espn.com about Reggie Bush...

"Since joining the team in 2006, Bush missed 20 games. In those games, the Saints went 13-7. That’s a .650 winning percentage. In games Bush played, the Saints went 36-24 (.600).

But we have much more than that. In games with Bush since 2006, the Saints averaged 25.9 points. Without him, they averaged 29.8. In games Bush played, the Saints averaged 377.4 yards per game. When he didn’t play, they averaged 419.8.

The Saints completed 66.5 percent of their passes when Bush played. When he didn’t, they completed 67.6."

To say that Reggie Bush single handedly won the Super Bowl for us is silly. If you want to pick a player, or play rather, that won us the Super Bowl I'd say it was the ambush play at the start of the second half. Sometimes the difference between winning and losing is that little thing called momentum.

If you disagree with me, that's fine. But I think we'll be just fine.

SUPERBOWL XLVI HERE WE COME.!
