I heard Ivory learned how to change direction in the off season.... maybe he will look at defensive linemen as obstacles and not targets.

Either way they need a new stat for him.. YAR. Yards After the Run... Somehow the pile he is in keeps moving.

I have high expectations for this guy.
And what people seem to ignore is that he was a very late 1st rounder. Its not like we burned a top 10 pick for him. He was 5 picks from being a 2nd rounder.

I think he'll silence most of his critics this year. I'm sure there will be some that expect him to be Adrian Peterson, but thats a bit unrealistic.

Agreed! We came off of a playoff loss against the Seahawks where our RB's were so banged up that DeShawn Wynn was getting carries lol. It was absolutely the right choice to draft Ingram after that. As to the other point, it is unrealistic to expect Mark to be like Adrian Peterson... His successor Trent Richardson will do that! (Pensacola, FL... I have to represent lol!)

I know, another diamond-in-the-rough RB passed on by Detroit ... do you know they could have drafted Ray Rice ('08) also? ... and I agree, Ingram is ready for a breakout year and by that I mean he's ready to live up to his rep in college ... runs between the tackles, decent hands, great compliment to PT & Sproles, NFL pedigree ... the Saints running game is unstoppable as it is, and then you factor in the O/Line? ... and besides, Ingram looks like he's having fun in training camp ... a happy running back is a productive running back.
