Yes the O line is completely weak when it comes to our running game and as good as PT is, he can't get anything going

The one thing that annoys me about Ingram though is inability to put any power into his runs, he could have won the tampa bay game for us on a run play that was perfectly blocked at the 2 yard line, yet he got stopped at the goal line by a corner back.

All our RB's are struggling because of the O line, that much is true, but watch PT when a run play is blocked well and he gets to the second level, he puts his shoulder down and churns out about 3 more yards after contact. Ingram should be doing the same

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

The Tampa game is the game he re-injured his foot. I believe Oak posted the picture in a previous thread of his foot being bent backwards on the sloppy field near the goal line.
I was sitting 8 rows from the field right where it happened, you couldn't get much traction there as the grass would just give way. He needed one block there and he would have been in. But that is history so let's look to the future and hope he gets it going Sunday.

Re: MI active. Let the hating begin

I would love to see Ingram do well. Been a fan for a long time. If he comes back and continues putting up 9 carry for 11 yard type games then he doesn't deserve his roster spot. It's that simple.

Contrary to what certain other posters insist, whatever Ingram bashing goes on is a direct result of his lack of production on the field, the same as it would be for any other player. I resent the implication that anyone who recognizes his lack of production as such is just biased as an SEC homer or fantasy football player or some other ignorant garbage that has nothing to do with his MARKED LACK OF PRODUCTION ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD.

Like to see him actually break a tackle for starters.

Correction, and an important one -- the article does NOT say that Ingram is going to be active on Sunday, only says that he returned to practice on a limited basis. We will have to wait and see if he is on the sidelines on Sunday. That has not been determined yet.

Re: MI active. Let the hating begin

I don't hate MI. I thought picking him was a great idea at the time. The truth however is he hasn't provided anywhere near the value that he cost this team.It is always easy to look back and think what might have been.With the picks we used on MI we could have picked Donte Hightower and Randall Cobb.Any GM in his right mind would trade MI for either of those guys straight up.

Re: MI active. Let the hating begin

Great, hopefully this means what ever was bothering him (mentally and physically) has healed and he is ready to get it done. Willfork is out so this is a prime opportunity for Ingram to gain some yards up the middle.

The perception of "hate" for Ingram is grossly exaggerated and not a term I would use to identity the feelings. Its dissatisfaction, and we really need to table expectations until after we see what he does on Sunday.

Re: MI active. Let the hating begin

Never hated him, just don't like what I have seen on the field. I hope he does well, hell who wouldn't, he does well and our team is better. Problem is hes not.
Offensive line sucks but Ingram is supposed to be the type of back that can make plays when the line sucks. He is supposed to be a bruiser that can bust through and make holes when there arent any. This guy cant even win his one on ones. PT has done a little better albiet not much, but he is not the kind of back to push the pile and make holes. That is Ingrams job. He is supposed to wear down the D so it opens the pass and opens holes for our other backs to keep defenses guessing.
This is running back by committee and Ingram has not been able to do what he is supposed to do as his part of the committee.
