Ingram was 36 yards shy of 1000 yards rushing, with a 4.3 average (second only to demarco Murray) and 9 TD's, that's a pretty solid season to say he missed 2-3 games with a broken hand.

Ingram had a monster year last year considering he was splitting carrys and was injured several games. He averaged near 5 yds a carry. Doesn't get much better than that.

That was one hell of a first post. Welcome to the board!

I really meant it when I said I don't remember Ingram running much Nearly 1000 yards? I had no idea it was that high!

He ran 225 times for 964 yards. Do the math. He also missed 3 games and was still at 1000 yards.

Although as a seahawks fan you will already know what happens when teams get physical with Graham at the line, you did it in the playoffs and he completely disappeared.
Or the legion of boom will toughen him up; hard to say. He is going to be tested real fast because these guys will make his life miserable if he has a soft attitude.

OMG it just might be a WIN WIN for both teams LOL.
It is funny how when a trade happens one team has to win and one lose. To be honest I didn't think Graham was tough enough to be on this team but perhaps practicing against them everyday might be the best thing for him.

The thing is, any WR can get open when the play breaks down, and Wilson breaks contain. Graham's real value will be his ability to help Wilson from the pocket, which he can definitely can do in the red zone, especially. To me, the question becomes Graham's position. All along, I've said that Graham is a WR, and I don't foresee him playing much in a three point stance.

It should be NOLA all day. As long as your team gets better, that is all that matters. If it means trading with the Dirty Birds, so be it..
