It's Pierre Thomas Time

We let go of our 4th round draft pick in order to keep RB Thomas. If he haven't been activated for the first three games of the season, I say take the bye week time and get him ready for week five. We kept him for a reason and now is the time to see if it was the correct decision, I think the kid showed a lot of promise, I say just let him loose, he's going to surprise some people.

Re: It's Pierre Thomas Time

I'm thinking he will do well...but the playcalling has got to get better
if its obvious when we are going to give him the ball (as it has been) he will have trouble
i think we are way too predictable

It is like we should have done with Duece and Reggie let them play for a whole series or quarter. Allow one rb to stay in the game and get a feel for the defense let that heart rate go up. I just dont understand subbin key players especially if you are goin to get them the ball when they come in there is no reason to steal the plays when you show the other team who is gettin the ball. Start off the game with Reggie and the 2nd quarter let Thomas show what hes got.

It is a start. I hope the trend does not stop here.

Re: It's Pierre Thomas Time

I just hope he's as good as we all thought during preseason. Of course with the way the offensive line is playing i'm not sure anyone can run behind them. Another thing that worries me about Thomas and Bush is their size, I don't think either one is big enough to be a smash mouth back. Of course if Payton can figure out a way to put both in at the same time, that sure is a lot of speed and very quick moves. Might cause defenses a lot of problems trying to cover them both. Might have to bring back the old run and shoot offense.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!

Pierre looked pretty smash mouth to me in the pre-season.
