The New Orleans Saints went "full live" - that is, tackle to the ground, full speed - for the first time Tuesday in a goal line drill and the third down play produced the best collision of camp thus far: rookie running back Mark Ingram crashing into safety Roman Harper just inside the 2-year line.
Ingram got the touchdown; the offense exulted and Harper was left praising his fellow Alabama product.
The offense had not had its best day of practice when Coach Sean Payton called the team together around the 20-yard line and explained how the full contact drill would go. In an identical situation at camp last year, running back Pierre Thomas came up gimpy on the very first play and the coaches obviously did not want a repeat of that.
But no one was asked to pull their punch, either, and when Ingram tried the left side on first down from about the 9-yard line he got three tough yards. Newcomer Darren Sproles got the carry on second down and advanced the ball three more yards before being gang tackled.

I was about 30 ft away from this.
The pop was LOUD!
Ingram kept moving and Harper bounced off and fell.

Awesome. I was listening to Deke and Hokie, while Bobby was calling it from the field. He basically reiterated what you saw, and you could hear the excitement in his voice as he talked about Ingram.

Wish I could have been there!

Thats good job by Ingram. Harper is a good and proven runstopper.

Oh yeah, that's right. I feel that Mystery Men was very under rated. For those of you with a good sense of humor, it's a must see.

On the subject at hand....

I don't think I have ever, EVER been this excited to see a team in action. On BOTH sides of the ball. The additions of Ingram and Sproles is going to add an element that this offense hasn't seen. I can't even describe the feeling I have about the defense. The front 7 should be "Lights Out"!
