Mark Ingram shows lack of running vision

The New Orleans Saints are enjoying a fourth quarter lead over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday Night Football, but it hasn’t all been pretty for the team. Drew Brees is struggling with his accuracy in the second half and running back Mark Ingram is showing why he is considered a draft bust.

Ingram had the opportunity to hit a big hole in the fourth quarter, but he inexplicably bounced the ball outside and ended up netting zero yards.

You have to do better than this.

    I really don’t think that’s fair for that play in particular.

    Has he been struggling with “vision” so to speak? Yes, but in the last few weeks since coming off his injury he has really stepped up his game, and I thought turned in a great performance tonight, especially in blocking, he blocked no less than two defenders on at least one play that were looking to sack Drew.

    And on that play in particular he was fighting for yards and nearly had a first down, the refs really screwed him there by calling the play dead when really they had no reason to, and screwing Ingram out of the yards he fought for

    Too use that play as your example of him lacking vision is pure ignorance on your part. If anything that play shows how much vision he does have, and how good he really is. The refs screwed him on that play, if they not have, he would’ve ran for ALOT of yards. And then everytime he does have a good play, he gets pulled out the game. They should leave him in for about 5 or so plays and let him build on his momentum. I think Mark Ingram could be one of the best backs in the league if he was to be utilized properly.
