I'd have to ask what's meant by disappointed. I'm slightly disappointed he hasn't broken a big gainer yet, but I'm certainly not disappointed in what I've seen from him so far.

He's got the balance, quickness, and power I was expecting, but just hasn't had one of those WOW games yet. I do think they will come however and had he played this week I think we would have seen a couple big gainers from him.

Ingram will be fine as long as he don't get the injury bug. I think if he stays healthy we will see him with us a long time. With him and Ivory being nicked up I'm real glad we are carrying 4 backs.

I agree. I view Ingram as a slighter bigger/faster/stronger version of PT, which is a great thing. His vision and patience aren't there yet, but they will be.

I actually expected less of him than what he's produced for us this year. So am I disappointed? Not at all. That said, I didn't expect nor think we needed a running back that early in the draft.

If Ingram can develop into PT, I'd be extremely happy. Hopefully down the road he'll get the touches PT never got to turn himself into an elite back for us.

I admit I expected a little more from Ingram than we've gotten so far but I'm not hugely disappointed either. I think hes still developing and by the end of the season he will either shine or ride the pine.

Oh & I hope its not my avatar thats disappointing!

Mark Ingram has been starting for the Saints most of the season. And he's done a great job because he runs with REAL authority. He's a major upgrade to the position, a complement to PT, and insurance for the playoffs so we don't have to scour the free-agent market desperately seeking 4th rate RB's to pull us through the playoffs (like last year).

What makes this article on NFL.com so sorry and sad is they have Julio Jones as an "Rookie Standout" when Julio has been hurt and hasn't done squat this season except for 2 touchdowns against the Indy DOLTS - worst defense in the NFL.

Julio Jones, WR, Falcons (first-rounder, sixth overall): He missed two games due to injury, but he returned in a big way last week to score twice. Atlanta paid a lot to get to him, but it appears he was worth the price. Jones also blocks well, which helps in that offense. He'll be a Pro Bowler down the line.
Seriously? So if Ingram was injured this season, hadn't been a blocking back, didn't score at all UNTIL last week, and he came on the field and scored 2 touchdowns last week against the worst defense in the NFL, then he would be a "Rookie Standout" according to NFL.com??

I mean, come on, seriously? Who writes this stuff? Mr. Potato Head??

In this offense, no running back will have a breakout pro bowl type season. Im in no way disappointed in Ingram, I'm disappointed he's injuries cause they will need him this week to keep the Falcons offense off the field. Good thing go 4 deep at running back so let's hope this injury doesn't effect him long term
