He predicts Peterson will get 45-50 snaps to Ingram's 25-30 snaps.

What do you guys think? I tend to think those numbers will be reversed for the two RBs, mostly due to Ingram's versatility, but who knows?
I think he's right. There's no way Ingram beats out a healthy AD even at 32 years old.

Depends on how well he can catch the ball. I'm thinking it'll be more 50-50 due to Mark's ability to do just that. I'm hoping it doesn't turn into a Graham type situation where every time Peterson's on the field, he gets the ball.

Not to get off track but good thing McMahon is gone because special teams was a BIG problem in 2016. Cost us at least 2, 3 WINS.

The O line is low on my list of concerns.

I see what Heath is saying and he is backing it up with stats, but we may have been more balanced simply because of the buttload of turnovers the D got us in our championship year. More likely to run the ball when you start out at the opponents 30 or 40 yard line!

was wondering about that as well... a lot of times writers don't write their own headlines.
If Ingram I'm not happy to see "Peterson-led"

I'm not so sure about that. Recently Ingram has stated about the addition of Peterson that his main focus is winning it all. He said he'll accept his role as every other player. The team seems to be coming into this season with a positive, cooperative mindset.
