This system has been built for him to thrive here. If he left the Saints then there would be a lot more obstacles to keeping these kind of numbers on another team. However, maybe the numbers in his check book are more important to him than the PFF numbers.

Re: Mark Ingram named NFC Offensive Pla

Seem's like there was a time when the big decision was whether to trade
Mark Ingram or Chris Ivory.

Saints RB Mark Ingram Could Become Free Agent If He’s First-Team All-Pro Selection

Nick Underhill of the Advocate points out that Saints RB Mark Ingram has a clause in his contract that will make him an unrestricted free agent next year if he’s named a first-team All-Pro this year by the Associated Press.

It’s worth mentioning that the AP changed the rules for the running back position last year from two first-team running backs to one running back and one flex player.

Re: Mark Ingram named NFC Offensive Pla

Not to put Ingram down or discredit his performances, but the O-line has been tremendous in run blocking, especially that Bills' game.

I'm not saying that you could replace Ingram with any other RB in the league and receive better yardage with this O-line, but I bet there are few that could exceed what he has done in his place.

Let him walk if he wants too much money. We can drive the Kamara and find a thumper!

Re: Mark Ingram named NFC Offensive Pla

That's all way too far away for me to worry about yet.

Re: Mark Ingram named NFC Offensive Pla

Ingram has always been a very good RB. This year he's taken it up another big notch, IMO for these reasons:
1. Blocking - both O-line and down field blocking has been fantastic. Fleener & Hill are taking some crap for not producing receiving yardage but the down field blocking has been excellent and often it's one of them involved in blocking for a big gain.
2. Motivation - First Peterson, and then later with the emergence of Kamara. Like I said, Ingram was always very good, but he never had anyone to really push him to be better (IMO he was always equal or better than the other backs we had Cadet, Ivory, even PT). Peterson (by reputation at least) and Kamara (by raw talent) have threatened him and has pushed Mark to be his best.
3. Dedication to the run - We've seen flashes of it over the last couple of years, but this year SP has finally seen the light and is finally putting his faith in his running backs/running game first, not distant second. I couldn't imagine a game where we ran 20+ times in a row in a game prior to this season.

Next season's worries are for next season, let's enjoy the show for now, because it's damn entertaining.
