Ingram- What do we do with him?

Re: Ingram- What do we do with him?

I hate being the guy watching on TV who says this kind of thing, but it seemed to me if he had kept going to the outside (left) towards the pylon, there was plenty of green and a pretty good chance that he could have gotten closer out there, close enough to break the plane or at least have a SHOT at getting an armful of ball into the end zone, when he made contact with whoever would have come up to meet him there on defense. Instead he pivots and cuts directly INTO the opponent a couple yards in front of him, and smacks right into the guy, thus instantly getting stood up, pushed, and comes nowhere close to sniffing the goal line. He wouldn't need to be a speed burner a la Reggie running to the pylon, but he had more ROOM to go forward, out there.

Keep using him, just not when it truly matters. When the play needs a clutch player, use PT.....no question.

Its hard to do something with a RB who has no power, speed, vision, elusiveness or trade value. Put him on the bench and keep as worst case scenario insurance. Release after the season.

He needs a wake up call, that proverbial slap that sends someone from hysteria to clear thought. He needs to focus.
Our most viable option is Pierre Thomas. Why is he riding the bench when he is head and shoulders the best RB on the team? He came in yesterday and made some positive plays then got pulled in favor of Ingram again. How is it possible that Payton doesn't see this?

I've been on the GET RID OF INGRAM train .I was on it last year. I'm all in on the Thomas Train .Thomas gives us the Element of not knowing whats coming. When Thomas is in the game the play action is deadly.
Ingram Needs to be Benched He just Isn't our guy

Re: Ingram- What do we do with him?

Somehow Ingram and the Saints chemistry is just not right...

PT is good for 8-12 touches a game (8 against San Fran type, 12 against Dallas type)...

Sproles is best used for 6-10 touches a game; it's like in Baseball, coming back with the heater after two offspeed pitches; but if you give 'em the heater all the time; they'll figure it out...

Ingram should be a 12-15 touches a game all-around back; but it seems like the mental speed of the NFL game overmatches him; he's not in sync and seems to be thinking too much in stead of his game getting to a reacting, reflex style of running...

I don't know if the Saints coaches trust Cadet, Robinson yet...

Ok. But in the NFL the only plays that don't matter are those that happen in the final seconds of games when you are leading by two scores are more.

Some past posts claimed he was not effective because he wasone-dimensional. It appears that he is now non-dimenstional. In short, Ingram is a waste.

My question is who is protecting him. Is it Benson, Loomis or Payton. Anybody but one of these three and he will be gone after this week's game.

Re: Ingram- What do we do with him?

Mark Ingram is to our offence what Sedrick Ellis was to our defence; a wasted pick. Someone who came from a big-time program with good college credentials and shows flashes of promise and potential but can't produce on a consistent basis to save his life.
