Hey Wusup Saints Faithful I'm here to let you know why Mark Ingram will finally live up to expectations this year and have a break out season. First, let me start by asking a question that has been burning me up in frustration. Why do all of these sports writers keep wondering who will be Daren Sproles replacement ? ?? If we wanted Daren Sproles we would have kept him, but in reality, we are transitioning to a tighter, more physical style offense and getting away from the spread finesse offense that we were known for. Ingram needs to stay health and battle Khiry Robinson for touches out of the backfield but I think he should be the first option. From here on out, the Saints are focused on smash mouth football and smothering defense that will stop other offenses and create turnovers, sacks and wins . . . I think we have a team that can be better than our 2009 team . . . . Comment if you feel me or think I'm crazy . . . Who Datt ! ! ! !

    Khiry will probably have a better season, but you never know. Ingram is certainly capable of doing good things. But remember: The Saints DID NOT extend Ingram's contract. That, to me, sent a clear signal that the Saints don't see Ingram as the face of its running game. Just my humble opinion...

    Gonna be a good battle between Robinson and Ingram. Ingram is a step faster in the open field but I think Robinson has a little better balance and may be the back who has the best chance of breaking off some 30+ yd runs which the Saints offense has been missing dearly. I prayed for us to draft Ingram and so far like everyone else I've been disappointed. The problem is that since Ingrams arrival no one else has found much running room either. I think the past receiving core of Colston Moore was so slow that teams crowded the box on us. With Cooks Stills and Graham I think some more holes will open for our backs. Who will exploit them the best is yet to be seen. I'm gonna predict that Robinson leads the team in rushing this year and maybe even gets 1000 yds.

    Yea, Sproles for whatever reason, perhaps the stunning hits he was getting, really fell off toward the end of the year.

    Ingram I think has the potential. I feel a lot of self-doubt in him, that probably shouldn't be there. The ones who are great, don't think much about it at all, they just get out there and knock people down, and run over them.

    I'm looking for, hoping for a good year--glad it's about to crank back up! WhoDat!

    Honestly, I don't think we used Ingram to his full potential. We always talked about running the ball but for whatever reasons we ended up depending on Drew Brees. It may have been the offensive line or any number of reasons but we have been a passing team.. . . Actually I even thought the same about Reggie Bush . . we haven't really stuck to and committed to a running style football team..

    It's a two way with Ingram; until recently, he was a poor fit and we were not using him to his strengths...

    Conversely, going down on first contact it not going to earn you more reps...

    Hoping his success is our success...nice post...
