When Mark Ingram said earlier this offseason that he wanted to become an every-down running back for the Saints, he didnít mean he was working to hone his skills to meet such a skill set this season.

Ingram on Monday explained that he feels heís already there.

ďIf you watch our film, I think most teams feel like when Iím in the game, itís going to be... run or play-action,Ē said Ingram, a fourth-year pro.

Thatís why he wants more opportunities ó especially in the passing game.

I don't blame him for feeling that way, especially given his improvement since late last year, but except for 06 it's always been a three-way split at RB. He would have to be Adrian Peterson-level amazing to convince Payton otherwise, and maybe not even then.

He is. Until he gets turf toe.


Seriously though Streif sings his praises and said that his biggest problem was the Oline not doing their job. True or not I think that was a stand up thing for him to say.

ZBS you non-believers.

When have you known Streif to be dishonest?

He runs during the season like he's doing right now and I won't argue it.

Re: Mark Ingram thinks he is an every-down running back for the Saints

It read it more of him feeling that he is an 'every type of down' back more than an 'every down' back.

Sorry brother, until you can screen like PT, you'll not achieve either option. While you are serviceable at all of the roles, we have specialists and your not the screener PT is, you were not as elusive as Sproles was, and with only 1 season over 11 games there are durability questions. PT only has 2 seasons with less than 14 games, Sproles only had 1 season with less than 14 games.

Frack.... Ivory has had 2 seasons with 12+ games.

Lets get a few more good laps around the neighborhood before you start asking to own the keys.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Another ridiculous post!

He's not demanding anything, he simply thinks he can do the job. You guys make Falcon fans look classy
