It's easy to see that Ingram is our best RB, he breaks a lof of tackles with that jump cut move he does.

In terms of being an all round back, he's as close to PT23 as we'll get in that he can do everything. PT23 just had crazy balance and was nearly unstoppable on screens.

Pretty sure Ingram is only 27 also, I'd like to see him break Deuce's rushing record.

I think he could. But with all the backs we have right now, I'd be surprised to see him sniff 800 yards this season. He has 125 through three games. He should have more.

You're absolutely right; Ingram really is showing more patience, trust in his blockers as Pierre had mastered; it took nearly five years, but, yes, finally...

Definitely still got it - which is why if we can flash him in a few wins on critical drives we should take a decent trade offer...

Frustrating for fantasy owners (I'm one in one of my two leagues), but it's that element of surprise and multiple packages that's made Payton's offense so special...

Now, I can agree with you on Ingram's balance, cause I didn't think he had it in his first couple of seasons; he's no PT in the screen, but I really like his execution in that facet now...

Ingram is a complete back. Kamara is looking like a perfect scat back. AP will be a perfect compliment to the two of them and will be a perfect rotational back when he finds his groove again.
