It's a combination of not playing enough to get a rhythm and also not utilizing him to his fullest potential. Payton has said it himself. I don't understand. If it were a WR that we only threw 5 yard out routes to then everyone would say we need to throw it to him across the middle some or down the field. We'd say no wonder he always gets 4 catches for 20 yards, but since it's a RB some how it's magically different. Color me baffled....

Re: Mark Ingram Needs More Carries

Where the hell are people getting this 2.6 YPC from???? Are these made up numbers???

From what I saw, his YPC was 3.9 for both seasons. 4.0 is AVERAGE. And is everyone not taking into account that he goes in nearly every single time for short yardage gains where the defense is stacking the box???

Or the 1-2 yard touchdown carries??? Or did you think those don't count against his YPC?? This conversation is getting ridiculous. I agree he isn't an Adrian Peterson, and he could be better, but let's not get carried away.

I think Payton is going to use Ingram a lot more this year. In Ingram's first year, Payton said that the only thing from keeping Ingram from being rookie of the year is Payton.

There is a reason that the Saints moved up in the draft to get MI. Sean salivates over offensive toys. We should expect to see more of #22 at the expense of the better all around RB in PT.

Motivate him or trade him...

Re: Mark Ingram Needs More Carries

People need to realize the order of things...

Drew Brees = Michael Jackson
Pierre Thomas = Tito Jackson
Jimmy Graham / Darren Sproles= Jermaine Jackson


I have no freaking clue what Jackson Mark Ingram is.
Alls I know he isn't Michael...

Did you just equate certain Saints to Jackson's?

Re: Mark Ingram Needs More Carries

All this BS he needs more carries, seems to me he needs more heart. Say what you want about Ivory being fragile, hurt or whatever, IMO I believe the so called injuries last year had to do with low balling him or he got cross ways with someone. When the man got a chance to play he ran hard and played with heart which is more than I can say for Ingram.

Re: Mark Ingram Needs More Carries

Imagine! A running back needs to "Run with the ball" in order to be more productive!! That's like saying a QB needs to throw more to complete more passes and if you win more games your record will also improve!!
