Great article that goes right to the heart of discussion that a RB needing more carries to get into a rhythm to really be effective and boost that YdsAtt...

It is.

Still wonder if we are waiting on the annual Ingram injury before we see AP.

Hey, knock that sh*t off, Hagan... He'll probably stay healthy with AP sitting right there; or now, even Kamara threatening job security...

If it weren't AP, can't help but think Ingram would have another 5-10 touches a game, Kamara would uptick 3-5 touches per game...

...and I don't think that would be a bad thing so long as we've got adequate depth...

My concern is we have to start forcing it to AP...

I get concerned about that too. Ingram is obviously the better all around back. I'm not saying AP can't play, but I just think he's somewhat wasted here.

I think I just like seeing Ingram get some props.

Well, it's the ole criticism that he was a first round pick that cost two draft picks (a first and a second) and the fact he took five years to get his groove...

But now, he's a near-perfect fit for what we do on offense and has more value to the Saints because of the investment than if he walked...

Agreed. We are finally starting to get some value for the pick. What stands out to me is how much better his screen game has become. He is no PT yet but getting closer.

I still Adrian Peterson has a lot of gas left in his tank. Some of his moves Sunday showed he still has the ability to leave some defenders in the dust.
