Re: NEW Mark Ingram thread (post Dallas)

Only thing I will point out is earlier in the year when KRob ran well against a dolphins D some people brought up that their D was worn down but others didn't want to hear that but when Ingram runs well it's a worn down cowboy defense. One other point is Ingram had a better game against Dallas than AP did the previous week and no I'm not saying Ingram is even equal to AP, just pointing out that he had a better game against the same terrible dallas D.

I want to believe last night was not a magic show but my eyes tell me that if it happens again this week, or anything remotely close to it, Benson put David Copperfield on retainer. His next performance isn't until 21NOV at the MGM Grand so we could in fact be in for a special treat!

Trade him now!

His Value Will Never Be Higher!

Seriously, glad to see him FINALLY have a decent game for the trade and first round package spent to obtain his contractual rights, but...

Dallas didn't have their starting inside tackles and lost their middle linebacker...

The question is, can he finish through the season, post-season with games like this?

That's the challenge before him, and though he's been a bust for the Saints, as a Saints fan...

I would be happy in his success because it would be success for the Team...

And I'm on record as saying that the DECISION to draft him was a bad one, not that he's a bad player or man...

So you SENSITIVE Bama-types can relax and geaux back to your drunken orgy post-LSU whoopin party...

Re: NEW Mark Ingram thread (post Dallas)

MI had a good game and I am happy for him. I think SP is extremely smart and trying to build confidence in him knew this was the perfect opportunity because of how bad the Dallas D is.

I hope Mark continues this. I hope he becomes a regular contributor for us and that his best days are ahead.

All of that said- IT WAS ONE GAME!!! Let's wait until he produces regularly before we start popping off on those that have complained for what has been the staple of his career until this point. I am tempering expectations, but very hopeful this is just the beginning.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Re: NEW Mark Ingram thread (post Dallas)

I have a question.... Its non-asuming so i am just looking for thoughts.

Given what i saw of Ingram's runs on Sunday against Dallas... Who is out punch it in power back?

We seem to pile up on the Sproles type backs and never really get a powerhouse 1-3 yard back that can carry a pile. So, did Ingram prove he can run better or did he prove he is the same as we already have a few times over, and did that hurt his value to this team?

The most powerful back we have is PT and while he is strong and stout I do not see him as carrying the pile.
Collins is a FB but he has yet to prove he can get anything done.
Sproles is not a power back.
Robinson may not see the playing field again unless Ingram gets hurt.

When we are on the 3 yard line against SF or Seattle, who are you going to with confidence to punch it in?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

PT is one of the best short-yardage RB's we've had in over a decade. He ranks near the top of the NFL every year in broken tackles and converting short yardage (although those stats were pre-2012).

I'm giving it to PT.

Fair answer and what I would do also. However isn't that the roll we drafted Ingram for and who we consistently give the ball to for those plays?

I'm not sold that we drafted him to be a power-back since he was never a power-back before. I think that was just fan speculation.

I think we just wanted a good RB on the team since at the time we drafted him we didn't have a healthy one anywhere on the roster.

Fair enough.. You being a Bama fan, you have a better understanding of what Ingram was before the NFL:
