What's got Mark Ingram all upset?

The Saints rolled up 48 points in a win over the Cardinals on Sunday, a victory in which Ingram served as the team's leading rusher. But the veteran running back didn't hide his displeasure with the Saints coaching staff after he was pulled in favor of Tim Hightower at the goal line in the fourth quarter.

Hightower went in for his second touchdown of the day on the following play. After the game, Saints coach Sean Payton offered a terse, "Next question" when asked about Ingram's tirade.

There was some talk on Twitter that Ingram is one touchdown shy of triggering a $100,000 bonus, but a Saints beat writer shot that down. When the truth comes out -- and it will -- we'll let you know.
