Mark Ingram.is going to be 28 next year and how much longer can the saints count on him? 2 to 4 years?

Can AK take over the load? Who steps in for him?

I put this in the Drew category. The end is in sight and the bench looks mighty empty for backup starters much less backups for the backups at QB and RB.

The time is coming and how long can you wait?

His last contract year is next year.

His cap hit is not small.
Based on how he is used, he's got lower mileage on his wheels. He may get another contract, maybe for 2 years, 3 years max. If that happens, he'll break the record.

So you credit everyone except the guy running the ball?

I've never been a fan of MI but I've got to give it to him. Guys having a heck of a year and playing with heart. When was the last time the Saints ran for more yards than they passed for?

Peterson showed him how to be a professional. Last year MI was whiny. He has always needed to be pushed. Kamara is keeping that up...plus contract negotiations soon.

MI is a good running no matter how you slice it.

How so? Mark has been a Pro since day 1. He's embraced & split carries with Pierre, Khiry, Hightower and Adrian over the years.

Outside of a couple of competitive outbursts, he's one of the most competitive men on the roster. Competition has brought out the best of Mark.

Based upon what I saw the first two games Peterson showed Ingram how not to act. Ingram learned the fastest way out the door was to confront Payton on the sidelines.
