Since no one in this topic is talking about "what if" situations huh?

People talking about sports, especially those involved with sports talk radio, never talk about the current situations rather than the unknown future...

I wouldn't argue that Ingram was a top 5 back in 2015 or 2016. I'd argue he's top 3 this season.



That is the exact point I have been saying.
I have repeated it multiple times.

We agree on it.

We disagree on what being a top 5 back "for the past 2-3 years" technically means. It is what it is.

What argument have I made? That's literally been my argument....


You literally asked me to make an argument for David Johnson. I responded with stats. You disagreed. All good. The counter "argument" you made was that I should not rank David Johnson ahead of Mark Ingram because he had 1 elite season. I do not understand the logic here...

These are your backs you've named.

bell, gurley, mccoy, freeman, d johnson. Not counting zeke or jordan howard who were not in the league yet in 2015.


Here is there inarguable production:

You'd be an idiot to argue Ingram has not been a top 5 back the past 2/3 years.

re: Let's Discuss if Mark Ingram hits free agency this year
This is basically off-topic, since the thread now seems to be about how many other backs have had better seasons recently, but-

again, I go back to my Elway Superbowl teams comparison.

Brees is plenty good enough to play to damn near 50 and compete for Superbowls, IF he runs this type of team: dominant offensive line, great running game, sure-handed receivers who can catch in traffic, defense that limits other team's offense.
We have ALL that in place now. Can someone else replace Ingram? PROBABLY, but not definitely... Ingram is beginning to look like the Heisman back we drafted. Marshawn Lynch-type runs, punishing guys in the 4th quarter. Like some folks noted, he has less carries than other guys his age, and sharing with Kamara, those touches will stay in a reasonable, not overworked range. And the amount of touches split between he and Kamara are working for both backs, nobody is getting frustrated about being taken out.
What's the overall salary cap for each season... is it worth saving 1 or 2 mil a year to change that up and experiment, when you seem to have hit the jackpot with this combo? I say NO.
Pay the man what he's worth, and keep the core of this team together.

Great point about fleener.

They need to keep this duo together another 2-3 years at the very least. Drew needs to sacrifice money so we can afford more talent around him.

You really need an argument for David Johnson ahead of Ingram? Wut?

How quickly we forget

he was a horse one year and got the volume touches. nearly 300 rushes and 80 receptions. Very productive year but 4.2 ypc ain't much to hang your hat on neither.

You say "inarguable" then post three stats that support your claim while omitting TDs and total yards.

Got it.

Yeah, they are kind of the most important stats of a rb. Ingram has 979 receiving yards past 3 years, ain't shabby and he really has seldom been used as our 3rd down back and doesn't have near the volume of touches as other backs.

4.96

I don't forget. He's an incredible player.

But the best ability is availability. He had 1 outstanding year at this point in his short career. I haven't said I'd take Ingram over Johnson

At this point, Im not sure if y'all are being serious, or saying dumb / homerish comments on purpose (a la PFTcommentor) ; and I am the butt of the joke for responding seriously.

So your confusion is that you don't think the past 2-3 years actually includes the past year? 2017 was literally in the post you replied to when you listed your top 5



He clarified it for you immediately too. That's literally why you were accused of moving the goal posts, b/c you moved the goal post to exclude this past year....

Since you have repeatedly ignored it, I will ask again:

Too hard for you I guess. Done.

Okay.
Please answer this exact question and without "moving the goal posts".
Two years ago from this very moment, did you (or anyone for that matter) consider Mark Ingram a top 5 Nfl running back??

Not posting the same 5 names for the 4th time boss. We disagree on one of the five players even after I posted stats. No need to beat a dead horse.

You still didn't answer the question

No, I did not.

You do understand this discussion covers a 2-3 year window, not a single season? From 2015-today, he has performed as a top 5 back. From 2016-today, he has absolutely performed as a top 5 back

How is this hard to grasp? That's you moving the goal posts

I editted my last post before I saw this response.

No. I dont. As I have tried to explain to you we are interpreting the OP that Ingram has been a top 5 back for the past 2 or 3 years differently. Do you grasp that?

Do I grasp the thing I've addressed repeatedly? It's been clarified 1,000x that the OP and this discussion includes 2017.

Do you grasp this:

Me:
quote:

List 5 better from 2015-2017.


quote:

I already gave my opinion on who was better 2015-2016


So are you saying your top 5 doesn't change accounting 2017?

Read 3x: I'm asking you to actually include 2017, despite originally not knowing that the past year is included in the past 2 years

If you combine stats from 2015 -2017 ;Mark Ingram ranks in the top 5. That is mainly becasue of THIS SEASON. Not because of the previous 2 seasons when he was not ranked as top 5 back by anyone or any statistical measure.

Saying Ingram has been a top 5 back for 2-3 years is a false dumb unnecessary statement. Get over it.

You're giving Kenner a bad rep and that's saying something.
