I like whichever one the other team's defense has kinda forgotten about late in the game or has not planned adequately for

What was so bad about Ingram? I mean he got hurt but before that he looked pretty darn good.

I'm just curious.

I think what most peoples concerns about Ingram are yes he looked pretty good.... But did he look 1st round draft pick good? Giving up a second rounder in 2011 and a 1st round pick in 2012 good?

I think its more of a ROI question.

RB would have to be PT. Really unfair to put Sproles as just a RB, he is more all purpose.

Sproles led the Saints in rushing yards. It's not like he just does things in spurts. So many people think there is some distinction between he and the other backs just because he returns punts and isn't an every down back. No one is an every down back for us. That's the system we run. And no one was better than Sproles, period.

He's a different style runner, and all the backs bring something different to the table, with the exception of Ingram who never established any type of niche last year... But it's hard to argue with a guy who broke an NFL record and say he isn't the most important of our backs.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

OK, I'm reading and understanding the question different from everyone else.
The question is most important RB this season not best RB. To me the most important RB is Ingram because if he is having success there is no way any defense is going to stop our passing game. Now if the question is the best I'm going to have to say it is a tie between PT and Sproles.

PT and Darren are going to be solid.

The way I interpret the question; I think M.I. is the RB we are going to need to make a strong finish. C.I. will perform great, but I think M.I. is the player we are going to have to rely on going into the playoffs.
