Take Ingram, he may not be the best receiver out of the backfield to catch passes, but that option is at least there with him(and quite frankly he's gotten a lot better at it). With AP the option isn't there.
This was the rub against Ingram when we drafted him (aside from injury). You could tell what we were or were not going to do by which RB was in (Chris Ivory as well).

AP would not be happy as a decoy, it wouldn't work long anyway, he doesn't catch like Ingram and Kamara (or PT/Sproles/Bush).

Great player in wrong system with too much pride to be a role player and too old to learn new tricks.

Re: Question about the AP trade

In Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, AP has 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals 38-33 win.

So AP found the right fit with the Cards, he helped us with the Bucs.
Happy Trails...... Best Of Luck.........

Re: Question about the AP trade

Cardinals won't get better till they get an offensive line - Bruce Arians is good, but that offensive line is horrible...

Re: Question about the AP trade

AP will always have a special place in New Orleans Saints history.

He had 2 of the Queens 5 fumbles in the 2009 NFC Championship game...

Re: Question about the AP trade

Hmmm, Vikings cut AP, Saints sign him, play Vikings, get the hell beat out of them, trade AP away. Connection? Well played Goodell! Well played!!

Re: Question about the AP trade

I've got a Peterson jersey/tee that I got from the dome while drunken shopping. I honestly have no idea what to do with it now.
