Mark Ingram wants smoke with person who took viral photo of he and Derrick Henry at 2016 CFP title game

He is the energy behind the Baltimore Ravens, but that does not mean he takes kindly to disrespect.  

Not only has everyone laughed at the viral photo shown around the world of Mark Ingram and Derrick Henry at the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Alabama’s first-ever Heisman Trophy winner has seen it himself and was not pleased.

The photo has been used as a meme with a 6-foot-3 monster in Henry towering over the 5’10” Ingram, in shoulder pads and a helmet at the coin toss.

Alabama defeated Clemson by a score of 45-40 to win a national championship, but Ingram was forced to live with that lasting image for a while. 

On Tuesday, he was a guest on CBS Sports HQ and the topic of conversation was the infamous picture of him and Henry from the game. When asked about if he knew the photo would be a viral sensation, the 2009 national champion responded with ‘Man, that picture was weak.’ 

“It was so whack,” Ingram said. 

“Obviously, he {Henry} was 6’4” with cleats on, pads and a helmet and I’m 5-10 with sneakers on. You put him closer to the camera and I’m further from the camera. The coin toss is in there, so it looks like I’m looking at him sideways. The whole thing was just a setup. They set me up. I remember I got back to the sideline and Landon Collins said ‘they got you bro’ and I’m like ‘it was like 30 seconds.’ You are weak for that screenshot, whoever took that picture.” 

Whether the culprit decides to come forward or not, Ingram wants smoke. 

In the same manner of him saying ‘come see me’ when discussing Lamar Jackson for MVP of the National Football League, he’s telling the person who took the screenshot from the television that he has the business for them.
