Short yardage is my only Worry. Line? I also wouldn't be against renting one of the numerous backs available: Murray, Lacy, Charles, Morris
If you sign any veteran prior to week one you have to pay them for the entire year ... even if they are only on the roster for four weeks. That's why I believe Payton when he said that the Saints will not be looking outside for RB coverage during Ingram's "vacation".

Ingram's gonna be missed. Not just his talent running the ball, there's probably a couple guys on the bench that can rush.
But Ingram knows this offense, he knows what the other guys on the offense are gonna do.
He's pretty dependable when it comes to blitz pick up.
He's also the short yardage guy, he's been known to rock a linebacker for an extra yard.
And he catches 3-4 passes per game for a respectable 7.2 yard average.

It's gonna be tough for someone to step in and do what Ingram does.

That 2011 team as well. I really thought we were headed back to the SB. They were that good. On a "bad" day, we were putting up 30+ points against the opposition. No team wanted to come to the Dome.

Damn 49ers .

It's our time.
