Pressure on Mark Ingram builds as Saints emphasize run game

"I know one thing we talked about this camp is focusing more on the run game," running back Pierre Thomas said. "We want to get back to where we were in the past of having a nice balanced offense. We are putting more time in on the running game than I have ever seen before this year. We are trying to show that we can run the ball this year."

He needs to step up. This has to be his year.

Re: Pressure on Mark Ingram builds as Saints emphasize run game

I feel like I have read this headline every single preseason since 2011.

We aren't going to change anything. We have Drew Brees and a plethora of playmakers on offense. We would be stupid if we didn't throw the ball 60% of the time.

What we need Ingram to do is deliver when he is needed. Short-yardage, goalline, grinding out the clock. He needs to be able to get 2 yards when we need 2 yards, even if the other team has 9 people up on the line. Other NFL backs with less talent and worse offensive lines do it all the time, meanwhile Ingram is in his 4th year. He no longer has an excuse.

Ingram just might get traded with the rest of the talent we have.

No he won't; Cadet or Flanders will not make the team before that happens.

I wouldn't bet against Cadet. He may help enough on ST to get a spot. He can also fill in the Sproles role. I know Cooks is supposed to take over some of Sproles duties but I wouldn't be surprised if Ingram doesn't get traded.
That is IF there is value for him.

Ingram's last year with us if he doesn't do something.

We have to have a run game to win.
