I agree. We're all fretting because now we don't have that double threat now that Deuce is gone for the year. Let's run those schemes with Pierre and Reggie and see what happens. I'm betting it'll be good.

I called this back when Deuce was injured. I remember stating that the advantage we have now is that no one is familiar with PT. He is quicker than Deuce and just as tough. It is time for some seriously clever planning on Payton's part.

Re: PT 23 Is A BEAST !!!

I think we all would like to see the scheme with Reggie and PT but I don't think Payton will do that becuase he's not letting up on Bush being the feature back and he's been like that since the Philly playoff game last year with McAlister and the start of this year as well. We're having wasted running plays with Steckler in the game when those carriers could have gone to PT. Even if we do go far with our season until Payton properly utilize both backs we will be stymied. You see when PT scored on his touchdown how the focus was on Bush

Bush and Pt could be the next best Dou running back tandem. PT is like Deuce strong but faster. Thet could both take the focus off each other. Let Stecker be third string Rb. Let Pt get more touches with Bush.

Re: PT 23 Is A BEAST !!!

First of all, PT is no Deuce, have you guys forgotten what a BEAST he was. I mean, I agree with all you guys that he should get more carries, but let's not get carried away it. Thomas is still a rookie, he's still not too reliable in blitz pickup and proper route running. You have to realize that on his TD run, Payton had Bush and Stecker in the game, and that kind of threw the defense off a little bit, by the time PT got the ball on a delayed handoff, most of the defense had their backs to the line of scrimmage making that run a lil easier for the rook, so a lil credit should go to Coach for the perfect play called at the perfect time. Now, don't get me wrong, I really love the kid's skills and attitude, but to compare him to Deuce is not fair to him and definitely not fair to Deuce. And trust me, when it's a passing situation and it's blitz time for the defense, you want Stecker in the game.

I'm looking for PT to get 5 touches next week. 4 on the ground, 1 pass. He will probably still do kickoff return duty.
