He seemed hesitant when he had the football, but is the Saintsí play-calling to blame? New Orleans ran 42 offensive plays on second, third or fourth down Sunday in Green Bay ó only four were runs, and just one by Ingram. Thatís way too predictable, and it helps explain why Ingram seems totally misused so far this season.

I dont 100% disagree, plus, in my opinion MI is the type of back that probably gets better with more carries. Our line hasn't opened a ton of holes, and the ones they do for PT is in part his skill, but also his dangerousness out of the backfield on screens.

I do not agree, he already had a TD in that game and a 2 yard pass doesn't boost any records.

Yes, especially when

A) Saints are on the 4 yard line w/ goal to go

B) Ingram average 2.5 YPC

DO THE MATH.

yet we passed three times using the excuse, "Brees was hot."

Ask any successful blackjack player or gambler about "getting hot" versus playing the statistics and they'll tell you that in the end, the statistics fail far less than a "hot streak" does.

I am not sure what in sam hill you are talking about... I simply stated I do not think he was throwing to boost stats or effect records.

Brees is always "hot" when he is not running for his life.. His receivers hands... well that looks like hot potato lately.
