I agree. His pushing that blocker right into the path of that Texan was a beautiful thing. I must've rewound and watched that about six times. He's young, has lots to learn and is in an offense that needs his blocking abilities at least as much as his running. I'm trying to pay attention to what he's doing during passing plays, but my ADD keeps getting in the way. I don't think he's going to disappoint us at all.

And now my new mantra, soon to be signature:
If he stays healthy!

Yep, I'm glad someone else noticed the power displayed on that 3rd and 1. And he literally pushed Meachem from behind into a defender on his TD run.

It also helps that he's finally getting a few holes. It seemed like the 1st two games he was hit right after getting the handoff.

I think he'll be a great one because he has a heart like Deuce, a solid committment to the weight room, and a fierce desire to help his team win any way he can.

Barring serious injury, I can't see him not succeeding.

Love his power and balance. Vision isn't there yet but once he gets fully acclimated, that should come. He has a bright future.

My Bush jersey has already been replace... with number 28.

I could not agree more!! I htink this will spark him to want to do ore & more. Scoring a TD must be like a drug once you have got a tast for it you just WANT it more & more!!

Ingram is the back we've been needing...the guy is a pure NFL running back. We're going to enjoy watching him do his thing for years.

Here's my take: the guy's a rookie and it's a new day in the NFL. With the exception of a few teams like Minnesota, most teams are going to a model where a few quality backs will share carries. We've got three distinctly different style of runners in PT, Sproles, and Ingram. I think Ingram brings some really good qualities and will probably get to see more carries as he adjusts to the NFL game. I'm pleased by what I've seen from him so far.

No matter who you are - Undrafted free agent or Heisman winning college athlete, this is the NFL and it takes some time to get acclimated.

Mark Ingram is doing just fine, yeah he initially needs to read his blocks better but its been 3 games.

I agree that his TD against Houston showed what he can do on the big stage, there is plenty more of that to come! The guy will be great, everyone knows this, he has the right mentality and wants to learn, that is how you become great

It's cold here, man. The cold effects the body in funny ways.

And if this thread is for members seeking absolution then forgive me for ripping into Jimmy Graham in the chat room Sunday. He dropped some passes and caused that 2nd int. that Drew threw.
Drew threw. Try saying that 3 times fast.

So I was all over the kid. I thought that since Harper gets so much hate, Graham should be called out. Guy came back strong though. Good stuff, young man.
