How Long Till Melvin Ingram is a Starter?

How long do we wait till we get Melvin Ingram in the starting lineup? He already steals all of our attention when he is on the field and he already has shown that he is a game changer. He is constantly in the backfield putting pressure on quarterbacks.

Do we really need to give Jarret Johnson the courtesy of being the starter since we signed him to a free agent contract? Double-J was a good signing to help groom a young player like Courtney Upshaw or Shea McClellin, BUT because God gace Melvin Ingram short arms, he slipped in the draft and fell to us. Remember all those mock drafts that had Ingram in the Top 10 and sometimes in the Top 5? Who knew that short arms could make you slide down the draft so far.

Melvin doesn’t need to sit and wait. Get him out there and watch him make some plays. We will always have the veteran Double-J to fall back on if things don’t work out.

Start the T-Rex!

    E, he’s ready to be a starter. He’s making an impact already. As for Dub J, didn’t really see to much to be impressed vs. the Cowgirls…..then again, all the vanilla plays they are calling make it hard to critique boring games….Go Chargers!

      Actually if you go back and watch JJ in that game you’ll notice him set the edge and turn the RB back inside to be tackled after minimal gain. I loved it! The tackle tried so hard to get outside him, but JJ wasn’t have none of that. Something we haven’t had around these parts in sometime now. Yet its hard not to have Jurassic Mel on the field. Gotta love these problems.

    Start the T-Rex! I love it! Sounds like a T-shirt coming!

    • Ernie Padaon

      what if we make a shirt that says “LET’S GET JURASSIC”… or something like that. maybe we call him jurassic mel instead of supamel

  • Saul Lopez

    Johnson on rushing downs and Ingram on passing downs.
