No..he will get better...O-Line hasn't been good all season...and we use too many backs to get a good gauge on him..and for him to get the kind of rhythm that i think he needs..

I do think Ivory when healthy might be a little more explosive...Ingram seems to hesitate but was getting more sure of himself before he got hurt...

I wouldn't pay any attention to what the critics say...we know the team and how they are a pass first team..

Ingram will be fine..i just want to see some 20 plus yard runs and the tough running overall continue.

I agree.

I think this guy is blaming Ingram for not getting the one yd TD against the Packers.

He should have mentioned that Ingram was injuried against the Colts when the game was over and, IMO, he, as well as the entire starting offense/ defense, should not have been on the field.

Finally, I consider a 4 yd average for a rookie that didn't have any TC to be very good!!

From a Saints Fan expectation, I expected a little more; while it was a team effort, getting stuffed in the @GB game on the last play was disappointing in that I thought he'd be a little more special and rise to the occasion...

In fantasy football terms, he's been a huge disappointment when you consider that on a pass first team and with the touches he's gotten, his production is much lower than projected...

A first round pick, he at least started right away - now let's see if he can be more productive and develop at a rate commensurate with his draft status and investment...

The play vs GB at the one yard line was entirely the offensive lines fault, Carl nicks and jermon Bushrod got owned and there were 3 tacklers in the backfield as he got the handoff.
Everyone expects him to do what he did in college, it takes time, we use a lot of running backs and he will get more comfortable. Give him some time and he will deliver.

Ray Charles & Helen Keller could see that the Packers were set up to stop that run; I doubt there is a RB in football that would have gotten that yard.

If the Saints had rolled Brees and a TE out to either side it would have been a walk-in TD; the 2-point conversion for the tie would have been an iffy proposition.

Before he hurt his heel he LED THE ENTIRE NFL in converting 3rd and short and 4th and short.

If you were expecting Adrian Peterson with the 28th pick, thats a you problem not an Ingram problem.

Many fans have high expectations when you factor in that the Saints Braintrust traded next year's No. 1 and their '11 No. 2 to move up and grab him - so expectations are slightly higher than they would be compared to other Pick 28's...
