METAIRIE, La. Mark Ingram went from one loaded backfield at the University of Alabama to another loaded backfield in New Orleans.

The Saints moved up into the first round to pick Ingram, a former Heisman Trophy winner.

They jettisoned Reggie Bush in training camp.

Coach Sean Payton said early on that he wanted to find more balance in the offense.

In other words, youd think the Saints were making room to make Ingram the featured back.

But they havent and he doesnt care.

I shared the football my whole career at Alabama, Ingram said. I ran behind Glen Coffee my freshman year. Split it three ways my sophomore year. Then we split it the majority two ways last year. Im accustomed to splitting carries and its nothing new to me.

I think it takes some special low ego backs to work it the way the Saints are this year! I wish PT would get a little larger load, and I bet inside he wishes too. But after last years RB troubles it is nice for the team and the fans to have the ability to swap and not tire RB's out and increase their risk for injuries.

Having 4 healthy, rested RBs will pay huge dividends for the Saints late in the season and the playoffs.

Hes the head coach, Ingram said. He knows whats best for us and hes going to put us in the best position where we can have success. I dont question him. Whatever he asks, thats what I do.

That's the sign of a smart young player.
Impressed is not the word I would use but I do think that Ingram will be a good RB in the future.

We have had no offseason, the dude is splitting carries, and it is his rookie year. It takes all new RBs time to get rythem. Time to get rythem is a luxury Ingram does not have on this team. He will do just fine, it will just take a little longer for him to get used to playing NFL football. He has done a fine job so far and done EXACTLY what has been asked of him by the coaching staff. They are not using him for the big play or many YAC yards, they are using him to move that chains when we need him too and that is exactly what he is doing.

The Packers were lucky that we played them Week 1 instead of later in the year when Ingram, and the rest of the rookies, were still getting used to the NFL football.

Does anyone think that Ingram wouldn't have gotten that one-yard we need against Green Bay if that game was played later in the year?

If we ran that same play into a 9 man front again then no, I don't think he makes it later in the season either. That play was over when the ball was snapped.
