re: yards for ingram this year(Posted by LSUFreek on 8/6/13 at 10:30 am to gasmonkey)
Under, but only because the touches will be spread out. Payton has only had two 1000 yrd rushers (Tiki & Deuce) in the 13 years he's been OC or HC.
However, Payton is re-commited to the run, & is now running the same Shanahan run blocking scheme that produced multiple 1000 yard rushers and turned "scrubs into stars" like Terrell Davis, Orlandis Gary, Mike Anderson, Alfred Morris, and Arian Foster (Texans).
Ingram wont get 1000 yards, but i'm confident the Saints will break their total team rushing record, which I believe is around 2200 yards.
over and waaaaay over. I think payton got a new perspective watching things from the outside and realizes how unproductive switching backs so much can be. I think it is going to be alot of ingram with doses of sproles and pierre seeing alot of pine. just a gut feeling.
