But, to be honest, I see it happen the same way on other team's forums, as well. Some people just enjoy thinking the worst. I never could understand that concept. It seems so counterproductive.
Always think the worst and you'll never be disappointed. Its weak

Agreed. I have brought up that very point on other occasions.

and that is also the Ingram-friendly portion as well. When Ingram comes back, he'll have one primetime game against Washington before more rest. So he won't get to start his bounce back quest until week 7, and that's at Baltimore. Then he goes to Minnesota, and then plays at home against LA. I have a feeling we won't be able to exploit the LA defense without heavy use of Kamara, who is going to be needed in that game, like he was last time.

But when Ingram does well against the bengals, eagles(not a good run defense away from home and against good offenses), and falcons.....everyone will say he's back to his old self and that he never got a chance to get going because of a tough schedule.

I felt we were gonna take a step back anyway because we don't have the track record of having an even better season after having a bounce-back season. And when you were two to three plays away from having HFA, then you had your best effort that season and will have to wait your turn again. So losing Ingram those first four weeks is gonna hurt because now the saints will be giving the defense less rest passing the ball.

Obviously did not leave a lasting impression.

We need another RB first for his style. RBs like him are crucial for our division games.

Saints aren't cutting Ingram.

On many occasions, Drew has labeled MI as the "heart and soul" of the team. I still believe in Mark & his ability. Unfortunate set of circumstances but I still see him as a Saint. He'll return in top form & run like his hair is on fire as he always do. Mark ain't that type of cat to take something intentionally he knew was banned.

Week #5 ... he'll be ready to go.

I am surprised at three suspensions in as many years but only because thatís a low number compared to reality.

Are we naive enough to believe that after 5-6 seasons a player just got good? Itís not a coincidence that the three suspensions were for players that had hot previous seasons, the league knows where to look.

This is unfortunately just part of the NFL. All players especially older ones are doing some form of PED. There's too much $ in it.

Itís almost as though you are trying to provoke something.

Have a great day.
He supports everything the saints FO and what the team does in games and no fan opinion even matters to him.
