Running Game Week 16

The loss sort of overshadowed some of the good things that happened last Sunday. For me, it was honestly the first game that I have seen Ingram produce. Dallas's defense was horrible and everyone ran well, but against Carolina he did well.

Mark Ingram - This is solid
13 carries
83 yards
6.4 YPC

And after every solid run, he was pulled.

I don't think he had back-to-back runs all game did he?

Re: Running Game Week 16

Could he have handled any more than that anyway. Didn't he have to go to the locker room for fluids because he was cramping?
Not that I don't agree, he actually looked good running the ball.

I doubt it, but then again, other than DLP and Drew.... No one gets back to back touches.

I doubt 4 or 5 more carries would have hurt him. Pehaps only being used every 5th play contributed to those muscles tightening up.

And I checked, he had no back to back runs the entire game.

I don't mind our committee approach if no player is really separating themselves, but if a player is playing really well like Ingram was week 16, he needs to become the main back at least for that game.

So true, although Khiry had 3 straight runs in the 4th (7,6,1).

But no one else did the entire game.

Hard to understand Payton's logic behind that... Deuce got plenty of back to back runs...

An absolute head scratcher for me.
