Good article on Mark Ingram
Saints: Mark Ingram is no Reggie Bush -

Pretty good read. I'm getting a little tired of everybody comparing him and Bush but I guess that is to be expected.

Both being Heisman Trophy winners it is to be expected.

But comparing Bush to Ingram is like trying to compare a crocodile to a chameleon.

I agree one won a superbowl the other hasn't played in a real game yet.

Vilma wasn't comparing Ingram to Bush, who this summer signed as free agent with Miami. But it's increasingly clear that these are two very different backs. Whereas Bush has spectacular speed and tends to bounce runs outside, the rookie Ingram is a decisive inside runner who has good speed but isn't going to leave vapor trails.

I'm also getting tired of the Bush comparisons. Ingram did not replace Bush.

I'm afraid its going to get contentious every time Reggie explodes and Ingram struggles, and vice-versa. It shouldn't be that way.

They said he'd practice today and play this weekend.

Knee swelling might be he knockt it on somebody elses knee and its a little bruised. I think they just won't risk anything.

Knee swelling is nothing more than fluid accumulating around the kneecap. I suffer from this all the time thanks to a knee surgery, a little sore but you can play through it if you have to.

I think Ingram is just what this offense needed. Alabama ran a lot out of the shotgun, which is where I see Ingram being valuable. Go 3 to 4 wide and hand the ball to Ingram to pound the 1-4 holes! This should result in positive gains more than not, which will also result in the LBs biting giving our WRs a little more room over the middle!!!
