Ingram is keeping PT from being over-used.
And more importantly he has been quite productive the last few weeks. We will need BOTH a healthy PT/MI come play off time.

Re: Pierre Thomas.... WOW

He is clutch, no doubt. He needs to show Ingram how to break tackles, Ingram got down right stood up several times last night.

Yes he did indeed. That disappointed me more than him missing that hole off of RG.

I remember several years ago PT credited his off-season leg work as a reason for his ability to break more tackles. He was squatting some ridiculous amount of weight.

The PT/MI combo is certainly working, but where is Khiry Robinson in this whole situation? He has looked pretty good in the carries he's had. I guess if ain't broke don't fix it, but I wouldn't be opposed to throwing in a few carries for Khiry as well.

Yes Ingram missed the slo-motion replay of the hole opening up, I'm sure it looks a bit different in real time but the official sure did blow that whistle early. They let Jackson have 3 seconds after initial contact but blow it immediately when Ingram was contacted.

And that mouth breather of an announcer "Mark Ingram frustrated with himself, I guess." Yes, that's who he got frustrated at

Re: Pierre Thomas.... WOW

In my mind he's a top 5 running back in this league. If he were a featured back like JC or AP he'd rack up over 1,500 yards from scrimmage and double digit touchdowns. As it stands, he'll probably get 1,300 yards from scrimmage even as part of a committee.

I rewatched the game and one play shows what type of player PT is

2nd and 10 - We run a screen and the falcons guessed it correctly and played it right, PT catches the pass 2 yards behind the line of scrimmage and breaks two tackles, gaining 8 yards whilst dragging 3 tacklers with him for the final 4 yards

That play should have been 3rd and 12, PT made it a 3rd and 2
