Mark Ingram and Jeremy Hill to carve out roles in 2014; vying for FSLR's Ultimate Sleeper title

Chris Meaney marches in with Mark Ingram: Mark Ingram has been hampered by injuries and has yet to live up to his first round draft stock from 2011. Ingram was the first back selected, 28 spots after the Panthers took Cam Newton. The Saints recently declined Ingram’s 2015 option making this year a now or never situation in New Orleans for the former Heisman winner. As as much...

Top 5: New Orleans Saints we would want to hang out with

As fans we tend to forget that athletes are first-and-foremost normal people. Freakishly athletic, highly-motivated people.

New Orleans Saints make statement about their running backs

The Saints have decided to not extend the 2015 option on Mark Ingram’s contract, indicating once again that the position of running back in the NFL is a rotating door. Facing a similar decision last week with Cam Jordan, the Saints extended Jordan through 2015 – which will be worth a base salary of $6.97 million. Late last year Ingram showed flashes of the Heisman-winning running...

New Orleans Saints: It is time to unleash Mark Ingram

Ingram averaged over 4 yards a carry against a stout 49ers defense. Problem was he only got 6 carries. The New Orleans Saints are awful on the road. They have not won a road playoff game, and their win percentage in cold weather is terrible. Every Saints player, coach, and fan know the narrative. Unfortunately for the Saints, to get to the Super Bowl they will need to win three road...
