Why is Moore returning kicks and not Pierre Thomas?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He catches everything thrown his way as a receiver and should be our # 2/3 guy. BUT, he sucks as a kick returner. What gives? Why isn't Thomas back their? He's on the friggin roster for a reason. AND, that's ...

He catches everything thrown his way as a receiver and should be our # 2/3 guy. BUT, he sucks as a kick returner. What gives? Why isn't Thomas back their? He's on the friggin roster for a reason. AND, that's one of the things he did best in college.

Drew's accuracy is off (even when he's got good protection) and our return game blows.

Because Lance Moore was active, as a cover WR
Pierre Thomas was inactive, and is a cover RB.

Mistake since Deuce seemed to be carrying an injury.

But, my basic question is why isn't Thomas activated and returning kicks? I mean certainly I'm not the only one that can see that Moore is just not a kick returner am I??

OK. Assuming you thought Deuce was gonna make it, who you inactivate for Thomas.


(BTW I like the idea of Thomas)

Got nothing to loss now. Put the rookies in an active rotation. One of them maybe the spark we are missing.

It's a moot poiint now that Deuce has an ACL, Thomas will be activated from now on.

But, take your pick on someone to inactivate:
Alfred Fincher
Troy Evans
John Owens
Chris Reis

Put Thomas returning kicks offs (it's one of the things he did best at Illinios) and inactivate any of the guys above. All of you saw him in the preseason returning kick offs. And, in the backfield, the kid goes THAT (forward) way.

I say let him return kick offs and play a majority of the time in the backfield over Stecker now that Deuce is gone. Promote Moore to the #2 WR and cut/bench/whatever with Henderson. He's timid/scared/drops balls, etc etc etc and is a wash as far as I'm concerned.

Don't evenn ask me what to do about or CB's. McKenzie just flat out sucks and David ain't far behind (if at all). We have no business playing man with either of those two.

Dean Vernon Wormer: Mr. Hoover, president of Delta house? One point six; four C's and an F. A fine example you set! Daniel Simpson Day... HAS no grade point average. All courses incomplete. Mr. Blu - MR. BLUTARSKY... ZERO POINT ZERO.
John 'Bluto' Blutarsky: Christ. Seven years of college down the drain. Might as well join the f@$%ing Peace Corps.
