Ingram, what's wrong.
 
In Ingrams defense, they never try anything different with him, not having him catch it out of the back field. Not toss sweeps or shot gun runs.

This brings out some tougher questions, can Ingram catch, is he a liability blocking, or is he hurt.

Go watch his 'Bama highlights.

Dude can catch. And run.

Ingram can block and he can catch, I've seen him do both

In all fairness, even though Ingram wasn't doing well before, none of our RB's even Pierre could get going, bucs stopped our running game

That's college. This is the NFL. So far, I haven't seen him do any of the things he did in college. Sorry.

Vitt is going to be making some changes and I assume this will be one thing he will want to look at.

See Ingram get ball.
See Ingram run between the guards.
See Ingram get stuffed because the o-line got pushed back 2-3 yards.
Rinse and repeat every time Ingram is in the game.

Seems to me Ingram only gets 2-3 different run plays called when he's in... Every team stacks the box when he's on the field.

Last 4 games...

Pierre Thomas 37-89 2.35 avg
Mark Ingram 22-59 2.68 avg

Whats wrong with Pierre Thomas?

Re: Ingram, what's wrong.
 
I think the real question is what happened to the run blocking from our offensive line?

That's kind of my point.

It seems to me that the things you saw him do in college are different because he isn't involved many of those style plays in the NFL. Pitches to the outside, checkdowns. Not straight up the middle, everytime, although he did some of that at Bama as well, and I can totally understand the criticism of him not now being successful on those kinds of plays at the NFL level. But he does always get positive yardage. (Except in GB)

I just feel like I never see Ingram with the ball in space with the chance to make someone miss, and to me its because he is always called on to run the same straight-line play
