For one thing, Ingram said he had never heard it before. More importantly, with that nickname, the New Orleans Saints' veteran running back doesn't feel like he's getting stuck with the boring power-runner label alongside electrifying breakout rookie Alvin Kamara.
"See, 'Boom' is all of it. It's explosive, it's fast, it's powerful. So I don't mind boom," Ingram said. "It's like, 'BOOM!'"
When he puts it that way, it's hard to argue.The Saints (9-3) have exploded back into playoff contention this season behind their prolific backfield pairing, which is on pace to make NFL history as they head into Thursday night's NFC South showdown with the rival Atlanta Falcons (7-5).
Ingram, who is expected to play Thursday after dealing with a toe injury, is on pace for 1,569 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns Robert Bortuzzo Jersey this season. If he's unable to play, Kamara should be able to pick up the slack, given that he is on pace for even more yards from scrimmage (1,627) and more touchdowns (15).
No duo has ever come close to those numbers. The only two running backs to reach 1,400 scrimmage yards each while in the same backfield were the Cleveland Browns' Earnest Byner (1,462) and Kevin Mack (1,401) in 1985, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
The only duo in the past 31 years to surpass 1,300 yards each was the Jacksonville Jaguars' Fred Taylor (1,388) and Maurice Jones-Drew (1,377) in 2006. The Saints' Reggie Gary Roberts Womens Jersey Bush (1,307) and Deuce McAllister (1,255) came close that season while helping lead New Orleans to the NFC Championship Game.
"We're trying to be the best ever. We've been telling you that," said Ingram, who said he and Kamara feed off each other. "We go hand in hand. If I'm punishing 'em, hitting it Brayden Point Authentic Jersey downhill, hitting 'em in the mouth, and he comes in and he goes around the edge and he's breaking tackles and Womens Will Clark Jersey making people miss, scoring touchdowns, man, we both benefit."
"It goes both ways, I think," Kamara added when they did their postgame interview together after Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Carolina Panthers, something that has become a weekly routine for the NFL's most devastating 1-2 punch.
The way these two have embraced their partnership is one of the best things about it.Ingram joked that he had to "get my best Alvin Kamara on" with his 72-yard run against the Panthers, which included making safety Mike Adams miss him three times with two nasty cutbacks and a stiff-arm.
"I'm trying to go in ‘Matrix mode,'" Ingram added, referring to how Kamara described his ability to make defenders miss.Meanwhile, Kamara said he was on the sideline, cheering Ingram on every step of the way."Man, I'm hyped," Kamara said. "I'm running down, I was almost about to run on the field.",106710
