Saints donít think Mark Ingram will be 100 percent when camp starts

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Loomis is a draft genius, he just missed on this one. Basically two wasted 1st round picks....

I'm a Tide man - so I love Ingram - but I can understand the disappointment with his rookie year. He posted 122 ATT 474 YDS 5 TD in 10 games, and the injury was unfortunate (if not unforeseen).

By comparison, last season's leading rookie, DeMarco Murray, posted 164 ATT 897 YDS 2 TD in 13 games (including the well-known 25 ATT 253 YDS 1 TD monster against St. Louis Oct. 23). Following him was Roy Helu with 151 ATT 640 YDS 2 TD in 15 games.

My point is, huge rookie seasons from RB's are not the norm. The Saints wisely say they'll give Ingram time, I think his critics should, too.

He did have a disappoiiting rookie year in relation to his college hype, and seams to to plagued with the injury bug, hopefully this is not going to be a trend for his career, still too early to tell.
