Interesting stats on Mark Ingram

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I thought it was a good move. He dropped fairly far from where he was projected. He did struggle early on but that had more to do with play calling and turf toe. We kept sending him on dive runs ...

Re: Interesting stats on Mark Ingram

I thought it was a good move. He dropped fairly far from where he was projected. He did struggle early on but that had more to do with play calling and turf toe. We kept sending him on dive runs and he said after drafted he is not that kind of RB but that is what we did anyway. Never understood why Payton forces players into roles like that but he is fairly consistent doing it.

Because we didn't have a 2012 first round pick, Goodell looking for severe punishment, instead took our 2012 and 2013 second round picks...

Now I'm not speaking for every fan, but, for me, that's too much draft capital, especially when I didn't like the pick. Why?

First, he wasn't a first round pick no matter what the color the sky is in your respective universe...

Second, his selection cost us a first AND second round pick, and I'm rarely like Payton/Loomis two-for-ones...

Third, with the extremely rare players of this past 2017 draft, you don't spend a first round pick on Rbs...

Fourth, we had clear, better need/value intersects in that draft way beyond taking a RB, much less Ingram...

Fifth, in what dimension will Sean Payton pound the rock 30 Att/game with Drew Brees as his QB?

Now, until Ingram's extension he was a disappointment of 3 yards and a cloud of dust with missed big play opportunities, conversions...

Despite this, I favored retaining him after the investment in developing him and RB market conditions with a lack of options...

Maybe he's a slow-learner, but somehow he's become a very complementary RB to Payton's offense...

...and his loss would bear strain on what the Saints are trying to do offensively not having an honest RB option...

I'm glad we have him, now. But you'll never hear me say poor Mark as he's been compensated and overly invested...
Jeanpierre, are you saying Bama players are all slow learners?

I think I'm tougher on him cause I really expect a lot out of him. He's getting there though, I think he'll have a nice year if Payton doesn't get the fever and abandon the run game

Wasn't a better back. History proves it.

That's absurd. You can't possibly believe that.

Are you kidding me? Last year Ivory played in 11 games and didn't sniff 450 yards rushing.

How in the hell is Ivory a better back?

You've got some seriously misguided logic man. I just don't understand.

Re: Interesting stats on Mark Ingram

I'm convinced he's either a troll, or a dumbass.

Either way he's off to Ignoreville. He's not even entertaining enough to ridicule anymore.

And don't tell me...you think Chase Daniel should be the starter this year instead of Brees...because he's obviously a better QB?

I honestly think you get on this forum sometimes to either:

1. Try to sound like you know more than everyone else by using poor logic or just throwing things out there to sound...idk...cool or something. When it actually makes you sound like you have absolutely no idea of what you're talking about.

Or

2. To piss people off because you enjoy the attention. I don't think you're a troll. I just think...you're some guy that has no idea who he's talking to.

I don't know if you've figured this out yet so I'll clue you in. A lot of the "fans" on this forum have not only been following this team for literally decades. But they also know a metric **** ton about this team, the players (past and present), the coaching staff (past and present), the offensive and defensive schemes and the stats of all of the above.

In other words, when you want to make a point, please remember that a lot of us really actually know a lot about this team. We're not "casual fans". So saying something as weird as "Ivory is better than Ingram" sounds like you know very little about either player. Even some people here who don't really like Ingram probably think that's a very bias comment that has no factual basis at all.

The past is over and done with. That draft is long since over. I think you have to put any aspects of how he was drafted aside when you are judging a players stats. He can't help how or where he was drafted, the point is I think he's a very good back in this league and the stats mentioned in the article show that.
