Ingram's Career Continues To Sputter
He gained 11 yards on nine carries for the Saints on Sunday, part of the teams usual three-headed tailback attack. On Tuesdays PFT Live, coach Sean Payton addressed the question of whether the numbers are a reflection on Ingram or the rest of the rushing offense.
I think its a fair question, Payton said. Its a good question because we try to look at that and make sure, Hey, is this the right play or player? Did he have a chance? [On] one weakside lead play, he slips on the turf and get a minus-two loss where we think its well blocked, so you know thats something Im sure he frustrated with. Then there is a run or two where its tough for any of our backs, but overall you get a feel and I think he had a couple positive runs for us against Atlanta, be it on a draw or an outside zone scheme.
