Ummm, didn't Bush get traded the same year Ingram got drafted or do you not remember the infamous Bush tweet after Ingram got drafted.

After the Saints traded their way into the opening round and picked Alabama running back Mark Ingram, Reggie Bush tweeted, ďItís been fun New Orleans.Ē

How do you not know this as a Saints fan? Obviously Reggie thought he was being replaced and that he was. He was traded that same year to the Dolphins. He could not be the every down back the Saints wanted him to be so they essentially drafted Ingram to be that guy. I think they signed Sproles because Brees wanted him on the team because he knew Sproles would fit perfectly as a pass catching back.

Actually, I forgot about it until you said that. Regardless, I don't believe Ingram is on the chopping block. While I agree with you that Payton doesn't put up with attitude issues, the Cards game is the only time I've heard of anything happening.

Second, Bush was traded because he hadn't played a full season since his rookie year and he wasn't as effective in the offense.

I'm not saying there's no way the Saints don't trade Ingram, I'm saying I don't believe they will and I don't believe they'd bring in Peterson as the guy to "bridge the gap". Sorry man. We needed someone to replace Hightower. Peterson is that guy. I'd be surprised if Ingram was traded. Maybe if we still had Hightower and we signed Peterson. But Ingram is coming off his best year as a Saint. He's run the ball well and been effective in the passing game. Trading him without a proper (and reliable) back up plan would just be irresponsible. And IMHO I don't view a 32 year old running running back that has high mileage and is coming off injuries as "reliable".

Without a good line, we won't be able to run anyway.

Re: And so it begins.... Max Unger out

For those that are too lazy to click the link and read the article:

On Wednesday morning, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter joined Anthony Gargano on 97.5 FM The Fanatic, a commercial station that covers Philadelphia sports. What was said in regards to the wildfire that was Mark Ingram trade rumors between the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles was quickly put out.

Schefter said this in regards to the speculation that started with a simple suggestion that escalated into a supposed real conversation according to Kyle Scott at Crossing Broad:

Let me tell you. Allow me to refute that right now and say that there is absolutely nothing to that. There was absolutely nothing ever to that. I spoke to people in both organizations and both had the same reaction: ďWe have never spoken.Ē So I donít know where that started, and maybe that would start things up now? I donít think so, based on the reaction that I got from both organizations, but that was never in the works.

Again, I donít want to say itíll never happen, because who knows. Strange things happen. But Iím just telling you there was absolutely nothing to that as of right now. I donít expect there to be anything to come of that. So thatís where weíre at at that. Is that definitive enough?
Ingram looks to be a key part of the 2017 Saints offense, much like heís been in the past. For whatever reason, silliness continues to follow Ingram.
I have pointed this very thing out several times here at B&G. DON'T BELIEVE WHAT YOU READ ON THE MEDIA HACK SITES! 90% of the time what is floating out there is based solely on speculation by people that have no clue. That is then shared by others equally clueless and finally read by gullible forum fanatics and taken as fact.

I follow numerous football boards. Eagles fans continuously think their front office can somehow get players they want as fans by trading their castoffs. When Cooks was on the block, they thought Kendricks and a 5th would net Cooks somehow. They have some of the worst fans in the NFL.

WTF?

I feel like every topic, given enough time will eventually devolve into a discussion about Mark Ingram, kind of like every argument eventually has a mention of Hitler
