I love Ingram's iron man attitude. This 18-game thing would be a cool factoid to hang onto.

He should be glad he was in a running back rotation early on with the Saints or he'd be broken down by now. Isn't he 34? Isn't the shelf life of a running back like four or five years?

Average shelf life. Ingram is on 11... Emmitt Smith played 14, Marshal Faulk played 12, Barry Sanders 10,

He was a slow learner as a young Saint... and he had a few injuries early on. So his body has fewer miles on it than it would've had.

Ingram is 31. But the magic number for drop off is 30.

I hope he gets to play 22 this year, and that the last 4 are all wins!

Now he's injured too. How much will it affect his game? I'm not sure. He couldn't have come back at a better time.
