Mark Ingram: I can do the same things Le’Veon Bell, David Johnson do

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was all for getting him and glad we did. Good use of a 28th pick considering we were going to lose picks the following year. Overall it worked out and he could be in position to have another strong ...

Let's hope so.

It did take him a while but I think he is very underrated. We weren't running the ball well as a whole the first couple years either. He's definitely more versatile than I thought he would be.

Bell and DJ can run on most good run defenses.

I thought he proved it last year by being the first thousand yard back we've had since Deuce and doing it at over five yards a carry. Can't we give the guy some credit?

We would only have lost the No.1, but because it was traded along with a 2R for MI, we lost two more picks...

No disrespect to Mark, who I think is a good player and am happy to have on the team, but he is no Le'veon Bell or David Johnson. Both are far more dynamic than he is. He's only similar to them in that he has a solid all around skill set. Those guys are super stars though and he's just not.

And, for the record, I have been very critical of Ingram, mostly the picks it took, the reach for a poor fit to our offense, and his sloooow development...

But I do think he's a quality back who needs constant competition to keep him focused, working hard...

His got an appropriate salary cap number, that can be tweaked if he elects to stay after next season...

And I like him now, what he can do, and the role Payton has carved out for him on this team...

I'd just tell him to STFU and Do Your Job!

You can only say what the press urges you to say.
