Ingram- What do we do with him?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I believe that it wasn't enough is because he sat on the bench once he got it jumpstarted....

It's on us , we're doing something very wrong which is why Sean Payton has been forcing Ingram so much so. He's evaluated so much film in that off year it's probably not even funny. He doesn't want to make the same mistake twice. Different things made them great , but they both had something in common around the same time they were being called busts ... The Saints


We can do the adult thing and admit our O Line couldn't clear enough ground for an ant to squeak through or we can make the same childish 4 year old finger pointing mistake as usual.


Fact , any and everytime Ingram , Sproles , Thomas , Robinson , Ivory , Bell , Bush , Collins , Cadet , get's a decent blocking line , They Shine ...

For 2 weeks I have watched this line get massacred and barely squeak by. Even on Drew's highlight throws he's a millisecond from being sacked. ( Umneyoira on the Colston throw ) This cannot continue , I haven't seen Brees hit that hard and often in a very long time !
You have a point... The New Orleans Saints damage Running Back talent.

Pierre Thomas ~ Most Underrated Running Back in the NFL
Darren Sproles ~ Got better when he came to New Orleans
Chris Ivory ~ Never averaged less than 4.7 YPC
Deuce McAllister ~ The Deuce.. Enough Said

Reggie Bush ~ Was not a bust... no more than he was in Miami, and I dont recall anyone calling him a bust. Reggie was let go because of the same reason we let Chris Ivory go.. Couldn't stay healthy. Reggie Bush had his most productive seasons rushing and receiving as a Saint. He had ONE season where he played more than 15 games for New Orleans. Reggie Bush scored more TD's per year as a Saint than a Dolphin.
Reggie Bush: Career Stats at NFL.com

And Reggie bush was a hell of a lot more productive than Mark Ingram...

You are way off base. And the number of Heisman Trophy RBs we have destroyed is 3... You may as well tack on Rickey Williams.

The correct synopsis would be that Heisman Trophy winning Running Backs do not pan out in the NFL with high powered passing offenses... Or you could say that the NCAA has not produced a Heisman Trophy winning RB worth two ****z in the last 24 years...Period

Here are all of your last HT Winning RB for the last 20 years
Mark Ingram
Reggie Bush
Ron Dayne
Rickey Williams

You have to go back 25+ years to find a Heisman Trophy winning RB that did something in the NFL
Barry Sanders 1988
Bo Jackson 1985

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Give him away for a rd 5. He is trash. I would trade him to the Russian league and have his citizanship revoked.

You folks are brutal. PT wouldn't have made it in on that play either. Why not start with having the O-Line block someone?

I beg to differ. Look behind Ingram's right shoulder on that run, there is a gaping cutback lane and all you have to do is shake one guy just enough to wriggle through. PT has made that kind of play so many times in his career it's not even funny.

Don't agree with you here.
PT seems to get the yard he needs the majority of the time.
