Melvin Ingram:

I know he played last year (not enough, if you ask me), but Melvin Ingram impressed us all, after returning from a serious ACL tear in OTA’s. Not only was he miraculously healthy for the Giants game, but he gave this defense a much needed boost. He came on slowly, but finished surely. He started out by almost forcing a strip-sack on Eli Manning in his first game back, and progressively improved with each game. His best performance came in the Wild-Card Round victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, where he was breathing down Andy Dalton’s neck all day. He ended up sealing the game with an impressive interception. We haven’t fared very well against the Bengals in recent years, so it was nice to finally turn the corner. We beat them in the playoffs, and let them know that they won’t be pushing us around anymore. Melvin Ingram is back, folks! Despite missing a lot of time to injury, I am calling his 2013 campaign a successful one. I look forward to more of the same in 2014, but with a higher sack total.

      What’s funny, is that I was writing this in a hurry, and that was the only GIF I could find. Ironically, it matched the article. See what I mean though? I love his enthusiasm, but enough of the helmet to helmet on his own players already.. we have enough trouble with injuries without him and Shareece putting their teammates on blast… hahaha!

      • Julien Bélair

        man this guy plays hard!

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        hahahahha… right. that is just what he does. keeps the heads rolling

  • Julien Bélair

    Teo will be a beast give him time. Damn that TD by Green it doesn’t any more impressive then that.

  • PorterMeNow

    I hate this article! I was all ready to go to bed and get some much needed sleep, but now I’m so freaking fired up, I’m gonna need some Xanax. Bolt up!

      Porter.. you are my new favorite. Hopefully, we get a defensive powerhouse, the likes of Keenan. Who cares which round.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      hahahaha…. that is the kind of hate we love

  • 619chargers4life

    Tip of that indeed !! We got some gems. I can wait to see all these players take the next step . Were going to dominate some teams in 2014 . And I can’t wait

    I liked Addae’s intensity right from the start. He needs to learn to come in with a little more control so he doesn’t just fly in there hitting his own guys. Next year you might be writing about Steve Williams the same way. He seemed to have that same kind of intensity. I think you can add Shareece Wright to that list too. He came on strong at the end of the season.
