I would just love for him to have a good season where he's consistent from start to finish and helps the team win some games.

Re: Mark Ingram: I want to be the best back in the history of football

You gotta love his bravado.... Remember when Reggie Bush said in game 5 of the 2009 season that the Saints could go undefeated and win the Super Bowl and Saints fans at the time thought he one was nuts, and two was bad lucking what at the was a good start to the season..... You gotta have some hutpsa to say something like that.... Id love to see him back it up by earning his extention.....!!!!!

He didn't say he was gonna be the greatest, he said he wants to be. Only a dolt could find fault with a player wanting to be the best ever.

Its not just Payton offense. The time of the star running back is over. The job can be done easier, and cheaper by committee. Teams are building their running game around several backs now.The days where one back has 1200 plus yards in a season is coming to an end. So are the big contracts and high draft picks for running backs.

Teams with a RBBC better have an elite offense or defense or it won't mean squat.

Tbh, I may no longer be a NFL fan when Brees retires simply because I don't like the direction the sport is going and the players that are emerging such as CK.

There is some truth to what you're saying. If he had said I hope to be the 100th best back people would complain he had no heart, but I think when athletes who haven't performed to that level start talking about that it sounds somewhat disingenuous. I am just looking for a really good season from him- I'll take that

Re: Mark Ingram: I want to be the best back in the history of football

he needs to take a page out of the Sweetness or Berry Sanders handbook. let your playing do the talking. There the role models he needs to emulate.

so shut up and put up already
