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

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.

He wants to be greater than any running back who has ever played the game of football.

“The sky’s the limit, man. I want to be the best back to ever play the freakin’ game of football,” Ingram said, via ESPN.

Through three NFL seasons since the Saints took him in the first round of the 2011 draft, Ingram has fallen slightly short of being the best ever. He has 356 carries for 1,462 yards and 11 touchdowns so far in his career. Those numbers wouldn’t even make him the best running back in the NFL if he had compiled them in one year, let alone three.

The Saints declined to pick up the fifth-year option on Ingram’s rookie deal, meaning he’s heading into a contract year. There’s a good chance that the Saints will move on from Ingram in 2015, with Pierre Thomas still in place as the starter and second-year running back Khiry Robinson showing promise as a backup to Thomas. Ingram, however, says he isn’t worrying about the future.

One yard at a time... especially with the game on the line. Let's concentrate on that first.

You just pick up what WE NEED, then you can strap yourself into freakin' Mercury Morris' helmet if you want to!

Undrafted players have easily out performed him. I hope we never use a pick on a RB ever again.

Of course you want to be the best back in the league. Just step into line right here behind Khiry Robinson.

He can have a productive NFL career. It's just not going to happen in a Saints uniform or Payton's offense. Everybody except Brees is just a role player in the current scheme.
