I don't play fantasy football anymore, and he was never my go-to guy.

Over-react much?

But since we're playing the hypothetical Ingram vs Ivory nonsense...

He'd probably have been placed on IR by week 6, have 3 fumbles, and Brees may have suffered a serious injury because of a missed block by Ivory, and we'd probably still be 5-5 heading into this game.
I've noticed that you always defend Roman Harper and Mark Ingram. I have since become aware that you are a fan of their alma mater. Is this why you hate to see these guys criticized? Ivory hasn't fumbled in a game in two years, meanwhile Ingram couldn't pick up a first down 80 percent of the time. Who the hell cares about practice? This is getting ridiculous. The guy comes in and is our leading rusher since coming back, hasn't fumbled, and people criticize him. As for pass protection, where was Ingram today? where was anyone? I don't think any of our backs are exactly great in that department.

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

Re: Mark Ingram's role becoming clear

Ingram got the start tonight and he still sucks.

Because he sucked, our fearless wizard of an offensive coordinator decided to only run Ivory a couple times up the middle to confirm the the RUN GAME IS FUTILE.

Pass. Pass. Pass.

FAIL

I dislike unfair criticism. The Harper criticism is ridiculous. The Ingram hate is over the top.

I responded about Ivory in kind. I like Ivory, I like him a lot. But I'm not dumb enough to think he didn't have any weaknesses coming into this season. Our coach even said so.

Anyone with any football knowledge knows as the O-line goes, so do the RBs. Did you notice how much better the O-line started playing when Kromer went back to his O-line coaching position?

The Ingram haters refuse to see that. Just because Ivory is our best pure runner doesn't mean Ingram sucks. I just have to keep remembering there are a lot of young uninformed posters around here that just want to vent. So its all good I guess.

Was PT hurt? He had 1 carry for 0 yards. Why didn't he see the ball more?

Re: Mark Ingram's role becoming clear

Im exhausted waiting for Ingram to produce.

Exhausted. He only runs well when he runs BEHIND Ivory. However, somehow, Ivory has his foot UP Ingram's azz.

No friend, that is not unfair criticism. Remember last year when we ran the ball so well? Ingram was putrid. And our backs weren't playing awful early in the year, we were just constantly way behind. Like today. Now I said myself in another post that the line woke up, and that helped. But Thomas was playing ok when he WAS getting the ball, whereas Ingram wasn't. I agree that Ingram has been playing better, but all this stuff about eating crow that I keep hearing some people say, is BS. He was awful until very recently, and still isn't lighting it up. And who said Ivory had no weakness? They all have weaknesses. But Ivory, Thomas and Sproles have simply outplayed Ingram the majority of the time. I'll start giving Ingram credit when he shows more consistency.

As for Harper, his play is indefensible. He is almost always getting burned. Safeties are called safeties for a reason. they are supposed to keep everything in front of them. But both our safeties always seem to be behind.

As for PT today? Beats me. I have no idea what happened to him.

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

Re: Mark Ingram's role becoming clear

Let's take the emotion out of it. Ivory deserves more work based on recent performances period. Ingram, PT less, Sproles less to a certain degree and Ivory more. Having four running backs involved in the offense to the extent that we rotate them is futile.
