Re: Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

I'm on the fence with this one, he probably is the best choice out there and I should be excited with this. But I think I'm just waiting to hear good news for the defense.

Dude, you're so wrong.

Ingram was drafted because Payton decided to implement the ZBS - the same scheme Ingram ran behind on the way to a Heisman trophy.

Ingram's success last year was due in part to two things:
1) Health
2) Carries

Health is obvious but his carries were 226. His previous high was 156...

The guy worked hard, stayed focused and was given the opportunity to have a good season. And he produced. To the tune of 4.3 yds per carry.

Demarco Murray, the NFL's leading rusher, was 4.7ypc

Just imagine what Ingram can do with a HEALTHY offensive line... Guess we'll find out in 2015!

Armstead, Goodwin and Evans were hurt last year. Evans had surgery and should be healthy heading into TC.

Another concern is that Ingram didn't come alive until his contract year, but the contract seems fair for both sides.
He wasn't utilized properly until his contract year. That was the first chance he had to be a primary ball carrier.

Like I said. Imagine what he COULD do with a healthy line.

Danno's right. Age and injuries caught up to our line.

I can't imagine we don't restructure Evans then upgrade our Center and Guard positions. Imagine Armstead, Sherff, Lelito, Evans, Streif.

Knock, knock...

Who's there?

1,200 yard season.

This Ingram deal looks better by the minute.

Eagles signed Frank Gore. 5mil annually.

Re: Mark Ingram Re-signs with Saints

Perhaps the death of big RB contracts has been greatly exaggerated.
