The New Orleans Saints aren't allowed nice things in 2015. Their destiny this year is unavoidable.

Of course running back Mark Ingram landed on injured reserve Wednesday afternoon with a shoulder injury. It's the one personnel addition outside the draft the Saints unequivocally got right this calendar year.

Not only did Ingram survive the offseason veteran purge by the team, he received a nice four-year, $16 million contract to remain in New Orleans and avoid testing free agency. He's easily the best money the Saints spent this offseason.




This gets lost in the poor spending of the last couple of years on the contracts of Junior Galette, Jairus Byrd, Brandon Browner and C.J. Spiller.

This year officially just got worse with the loss of Ingram. What's next?

Ingram had 1200 all purpose yards, he will be missed. Time for CJ to grow a pair.

Ingram will be missed. Not like Payton likes running the ball anyway but It's time for Spiller to put his purse down and come play some football.

Also had 50 receptions on the season and is fifth among running backs in receiving yardage. Roll Tide was having a solid year up to this point.

Re: Give it to Mark Ingram for becoming irreplaceable for New Orleans Saints

I have been hard on Mark. But when healthy he has proven he can get better with each year. Issue is will he ever see a full 16 games given the work load. I think not. Time to solve this musical chairs at RB. Once again I spent the year looking at RB to help Mark out.

Re: Give it to Mark Ingram for becoming irreplaceable for New Orleans Saints

When he came in the league I had high hopes for him. Then his poor performance and poor attitude had me changing my mind. But I'm back on the band wagon again........too bad he's out for the year.

He's worked really hard for the team this season, I feel sorry for the guy, this is the last thing he/team needed after putting in good performances so far this year!

Get well soon!

GEAUX SAINTS!

Not a fair comment!

CJ can't play if he isn't in the game or play to his best if put in on bad plays!

Re: Give it to Mark Ingram for becoming irreplaceable for New Orleans Saints

Very pleased with the progress Mark has made. I was really rooting to see him break 1,000 rushing yards this season. The thing that impresses me most is how he's become such a leader off the field with charity work and having teammates over for family dinners. Ever since becoming a dad he's really embraced being a high-character guy.

Ingram hasn't worn the stain of the 4th and goal failure against Green Bay off yet to a lot of 'fans'
