Ingram
 
i stand corrected... i have been semi secretly on the "i aint seen $h!t for Ingram" train. i just watched nfl replay and watched him closely. i take back what i have said. his run up the middle on 3rd and 1, he plowed 3 guys. his td run to go ahead....manly. he pushes a saint and the man he was blocking out of the way with one hand. i hope he is coming on. also, has anyone watched him talk?... he looks like an english bulldog

I hope that TD was the spark for him. I'm sure he's hungry to make a name for himself. I'd like to see him as rookie running back of the year. Big shoes.

Cheers,

Alaska

We're beginning to see more flashes of what could become greatness. I haven't formed a concrete opinion of him yet. I'm just taking the wait and see approach.

The Dude 09-28-2011 10:57 PM

I think its funny how fans keep questioning Ingrams performance in a shortened offseason, one of the deepest backfeilds in the league and an offense that is pass first THREE games into the season. Hes a rookie and at this point is just a luxury we are fortunate to have. I agree with another poster who said that Ingram was drafted to prolong Brees' career down the line. Brees isnt going to be able to throw 400+ yards a game on a reconstructed shoulder forever. By the time Brees starts to decline, Sproles and PT will be getting up in age and that is where Ingram will come into play. Ingram was drafted for the future. I don't understand what people expect out of this guy after 3 games, in a pass happy offense, with a crowded backfield. I am not really referring to many posters on this board, but I have seen it on others.

Well he just needs som carries. How many has he had so far? It has to be around a total of 20 in 3 games. Its gonna take him a little while to get up to speed if he don't get the ball more often.

FinSaint 09-29-2011 02:23 AM

I'm not worried about him... the Saints don't really need him to have a brake out year right away - although I think he is more than capable of having one - with the situation they have at the RB position. As long as he keeps working on improving his game in all of its aspects, I'm completely fine with his performance.

He'll be a great RB whether its this or the next season simply because he has all the physical traits needed accompanied with the correct mentality to make it all come together in the end.

alleycat_126 09-29-2011 02:44 AM

I'll weigh in, with the amount of able backs that we have, every body keeps everybody else fresh. Unless he was the Adrian Peterson type back I don't see him getting enough carries to be respected right away. but as another poster said. Once the aging of this team starts, he'll be the guy who keeps us relavant for the future.

foreverfan 09-29-2011 03:20 AM

Ingram is insurance for the post season.

DblBogey 09-29-2011 06:51 AM

He didn't have a 1000+ yds after the initial hit in college for nothing. Put your opinions on hold until the season is over. I think Payton is bringing him along slowly to get him more acclimated to the NFL. He has been compared to Emmit Smith but I am here to tell you he is Mark Ingram and he will make a name for his self in the NFL . . . mark my words!

Speedy Ron 09-29-2011 07:11 AM

well really up to this game he has been stuffed at the line, hasnt broken a tackle, and fumbled. hasnt looked so sharp

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.

papz 09-29-2011 08:26 AM

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!!

strato 09-29-2011 11:20 AM

He is a rook...more of this to come in the future...the line was also blocking better...

saintfan 09-29-2011 12:10 PM

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.

TheDeuce 09-29-2011 12:12 PM

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.

You're forgiven ..... I don't care how nipply your avatar is ... lol

dizzle88 09-29-2011 02:01 PM

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.

I forgive you, too...but I was just wondering.

Do you think that girl in Ron's avatar knew her nipples were showing when she wore that shirt? I was watching something the other day on TV and they said that girls do know and do it on purpose. What do you think?
