Pierre Thomas

In 241 career carries, Reggie Bush has a career long of 22 yards. In 3 career carries, Pierre Thomas has a 24 yard career long. Let give Pierre a chance. I don’t think Reggie scores on that play if he gets the ball.

Re: Pierre Thomas

Did you see Reggie score that TD. Did you you see it.

Re: Pierre Thomas

I agree. Thomas has a Maurice Jones-Drew feel to him

Re: Pierre Thomas

I don't believe it's a matter of Pierre is better than Reggie or Reggie better than Pierre. I'm glad we have them both and I hope we can utilize their talents for the betterment of the team. Pierre may be better coming off the bench in certain situations, kinda like Devery had huge success coming off the bench last year, and just like he did today.

You say " Reggie doesn't score on that play", well probably not because the defense respects Reggie where ever he lines up, but in this case the draw play worked for Pierre mostly because he's not Reggie.

We're talking about a professional NFL franchise. You respect the players on the field or you lose. This isn't preseason anymore, we're all playing to win - whether that means stuffing no-name #23 or Reggie Bush. "oh it's Thomas, let's try not to tackle him and let him score"

Thomas seems to have "it" when it comes to being productive. If they're not going to respect #23, so be it, we'll just let him run wild ALL OVER THE PLACE.

He's a nice change-up with respect to Bush. Makes them both more effective, so I say all the better.

Re: Pierre Thomas

Do you recall fullback Karney scoring 3 TD's in one game last season? ... I'll give you a hint, Dallas. Now how was it Karney walked into the endzone 3 times untouched? Because all eyes were on Reggie, Deuce, and Colston. Yes, an NFL franchise, a playoff calibur team, got fooled.... not 1, not 2, but 3 times.

Re: Pierre Thomas

you're absolutely right, about what i don't know, but you're right

the fact that our offense has been running like a surgical scoring and 3rd down converting machine this year .is. probably the thing that sprung pierre, forget the fact that it was his first handoff of the game for over 20 yards, broken tackles, jukes and all, for a touchdown.

all i'm saying is pierre is hungry, feed the beast!

reggie's good and everything for a big play or two, but pierre is so effective he demands touches

Re: Pierre Thomas

There is only one person on the other teams defense watching Thomas, closely. There are three or more people watching Bush closely. The entire defense is trying to stop Reggie not Pierre.

I did see it. That was a great run. Did you see Pierre's run? He made a couple of nice cuts and broke a tackle at the end to score. All I am saying is I would like to see Thomas carry the ball more.

Reggie does seem to be petty good at getting in the end zone when you get close.
