re: What has Mark Ingram done to earn the most carries? (Posted on 7/13/13 at 1:51 pm to Iona Fan Man)
PT hasn't been the workhorse his entire time here, provided Ingram can gain more than 1 yard this year it is better to give him his chance and maintain PT in his normal role. This team is going to have to be able to run the ball to win the Super Bowl again especially with this historically bad defense. If Ingram can't get it done I think Payton has shown in the past he like to throw the ball.

PT is more valuable to this offense mainly bc of the passing game... so running him down the oppositions throat isn't ideal.
So we drafted Ingram to be the battering ram to take all the abuse. It wasn't Payton and Loomis' best moment when they drafted Ingram but what's done is done. So all we can do now as fans is support him and hope he becomes the bruiser we need to get the tough yards.
