New Orleans Saints Running Back Controversy: Mark Ingram (Part 3 of 5)

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Ingram had 9 games in 2009 in which he rushed for at least 100 yards, and he also caught 32 passes for 334 yards and 3 more touchdowns. His 2009 season was good enough for him to be voted the Heisman Trophy winner. Ingram is Alabama’s first and only Heisman Trophy winner.

In 2010, Ingram had minor knee surgery that sidelined him for the first 2 games of the season. He came back from his surgery and still ran for 875 yards on 158 carries for 5.5 yard per carry average and 13 touchdowns. Ingram added another 282 yards and a touchdown on 21 receptions.

Ingram possesses a rare combination of power and quickness. He has been compared to Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith, because of his compact running style and overwhelming toughness.

In my opinion, Ingram has the power and toughness to run between the tackles and the quickness, balance, and agility to break the big play on the outside.

Ingram hasn’t let the lockout stop him from working out with his teammates. He wants to develop that chemistry and cohesiveness with his teammates, which is needed in a team that is going to be a Superbowl contender.

It appears to me that Mark Ingram has come to New Orleans to compete for playing time and is showing the desire to play a significant role in the New Orleans Saints high powered offense.

Mark Ingram I would like to welcome you the Who Dat family…WHO DAT! GEAUX SAINTS!
