Well we're waiting.

Mark Ingram doesn’t just want to be a good running back. He doesn’t just want to be a great running back. He doesn’t just want to be the best running back in the NFL.

Well that would be a more valid reason to hate on him than anything he said in that article.

Absolutely ridiculous.
I don't personally have a problem, per se, with what Ingram said. It does sound silly coming from someone who hasn't done much. It seems like he's always got something to say about having something to prove, and has yet to back it up. It's fine to speak with confidence and have goals, but when you're always talking and rarely showing out on the field, people will get tired of hearing it from you.

Where I completely disagree with you is your comparisons given to other players... Those guys have all done something. I can't think of anything that needs to be added to that.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Maybe Mark Ingram should be tested twice for marijuana.

I want to be able to run out of the gun, run in nickel, catch screen passes, pick up pass protection. I just want to do everything I can to contribute from a football player -- not just a running back.

“I just want to do everything I can to be the best player I can be to help us win games and win a championship. That’s my No. 1 goal.”

In otherwords he wants to be Pierre Thomas without the candor

I have always said he is not in the best system for his skill set. the saints may just get this zone blocking thing down this year and he just might shine.

If he does then talk the trash

Saying you want to be the best isn't talking trash.
