Mark Ingram : facing eight in the box

+

PFF gives us a look at the number of times running backs with at least 100 carries faced eight defenders in the box last season. Mark Ingram ranked seventh on this list, facing eight in the box on 25,64% of his carries when the league average is 23,25%. For the sake of comparison PT Cruiser only ranked 36th with 12,38%. It shows the Ingram was somewhat misused last year. The lack of originality in the way he was used (Run between the tackles on first down / obvious rushes late in garbage time) allowed defensive coordinators to disrespect our running game? No wonder Sean Payton pointed out improving the running game as a key focus for next season and it will obviously start with improving the play calling.
