PFF made a "All Preseason Team". I know it's lame and doesn't mean anything...

But I thought it was noteworthy that Mark Ingram earned the starting running back.

Running Back: Mark Ingram, NO (+1.5)
As to be expected thereís not been a lot of carries for the lead backs of this league, but Ingram looked impressive enough averaging 7 yards per rush. A nice one-two effort when you think what his teammate Pierre Thomas showed in the receiving game.


They also tweeted that Mark had 6 broken tackles on 20 carries and averaged a league hight, 4.9 yards after contact, which are very impressive numbers.

Again, preseason doesn't mean anything but to me, it's another reason to be optimistic about the season. (cautiously optimistic though, we're Saints fans after all)


Cam Jordan also made the PFF starters team

Edge Rushers: Cameron Jordan, NO (+6.5) and Tamba Hali, KC (+6.7)
With the Saints looking more like a 4-3 team right now, Jordan is spending more time at end and isnít looking any worse for it with a splendid effort in preseason so far.


Not as surprising as Ingram, but still nice to see.

Not a bad snippet of info. It's looking like we may get to see Ingram at his best this year.

Re: PFF- All Preseason team

Defense isn't a 4-3 now anymore than it was last year. Just playing it vanilla. I imagine there won't be a whole lot of either 4-3 or 3-4 formations. I would love to see a count of the number of plays last year with 2 or less linebackers, I bet it's easily 75%.

IIRC I think we lined up in a 4-3 (Galette's hand on the ground) more than we lined up in a 3-4.

And we took a ton of snaps in our big nickel and dime packages.

I'm not sure about that 75% figure, but I'm pretty sure we ran less than 3 LB's over 50% easily. There was a time when I'd spend an hour or two researching that, but I'm too frigging old now.

Re: PFF- All Preseason team

Ingram will be a fantasy sleeper this year. Won't be a number 1 RB, but I think he will surprise us with 1000 yds and 10+TDs. Robinson will be good for 700+ and 4-6 TDs, PT will come in at 400+ and 4 TDs. Thomas will get more receiving yards and TDs than Ingram and Robinson combined as I think he'll be the 3rd down back only.
