Give Saints RB Ingram a break | New Orleans Saints | The Sun Herald

2

Yeah, I know most of y'all, especially on the Gulf Coast, weren't in attendance at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Still, many of you WhoDats tuned in to this nationally televised game, snarling even at the sight of Ingram, a former first-round draft pick, in the Saints backfield. You threw popcorn at the flat screen and tweeted cheap shots after Ingram dropped a pass in the first quarter; even after he had his first decent run in weeks then earned a delay of game penalty for spinning the football. It's the same as the 10 seconds of jeers he received. Then Ingram went to work behind an offensive line, which for the first time in a long time, decided to block somebody. The Saints rushed for 242 yards, and Ingram notched his first 100-yard game as a pro, finishing with 145 yards and one touchdown, including a four-yard run with 2:43 left in the third quarter. He ended the dash on his knees, sliding, where he placed his hands in the air. It was as much his emotional release from a disastrous season and disappointing three years as it was his "Now y'all love me?" moment. What was that, I heard? Cheers? Nah, couldn't be. It was.
