at a five yard average that is 13 carrier a game on average he has never had more than 10 carries a game on average. healthy or not. thats why i said he needs to rip some long runs at least every other game to get 1000+ yards.

then you got Khiry Robinson this year.

he is running for a pay check so we will see

Ingram has gotten a bad rap here. No one has found much running room in the last few years. He looked awesome in the preseason. I'm back on the Ingram bandwagon for now.

Re: Mark Ingram, improved rushing attack could be key for New Orleans Saints

Take this for what it's worth..... For me it speaks at least 1 volume for Ingram at this stage in his career.

4th Qtr, Super Bowl on the line, down by 5... 4th and goal on the 3 yard line. I'm giving it to PT above all of our other RBs. All things considered, ball security, vision, breaking tackles, power.... It's Pierre Thomas.

All stats, bandwagon, hate, onions, and a bran muffin on the side.

That drive vs MIN was all PT and his ball security. Some other back would have fumbled it.

I don't know about you; but I'm leaving the ball in the hands of the greatest Quarterback ever! Either Graham or Colston on fade routes will be open

Yeah, I'm also aware that even though he has Adrian Peterson numbers on paper, he's no Adrian Peterson.

Well neither is PT, your hate is unwarranted... I guess everyone needs a scapegoat

Re: Mark Ingram, improved rushing attack could be key for New Orleans Saints

My point is, my opinion is, I don't think Ingram has somehow found a missing ingredient in his athleticism & ability that's going to produce anything head and shoulders above anything we've already seen.
Anybody that wants to join the New-Ingram bandwagon, fine. I'll hold your beer and help you climb up. And I'll be happy to eat crow if you come back in October and say "See, I toldja so. It was that darn kryptonite!".
