I think Pierre Thomas has at least earned the right to the oppurtunity to start. Drafting a RB in the first round of a draft extremely deep at the position would be a mistake in my eyes.

Re: Pierre = Real Deal?

We'll see just how much faith the coaching staff and FO have in PT by the way we draft. If they are truly sold on him then I don't think we draft a RB at all or at least not on the first day. No one can predict how the draft will go but it's safe to say that we will have some very good RB prospects staring at us in the second round. With the posistion being so deep this year I think teams will pass on some good RBs thinking they can pick up one later. That means that a few RBs will drop and not be drafted as high as they would if the talent pool was more shallow. So having said all that I think that if the staff and FO have any doubts about PT they will jump on one of the solid RBs that should be on the board. If they don't then that means they are confident with their depth.

Re: Pierre = Real Deal?

Remember one thing about PT coming out of college: 2 OCs in 3 years. His senior year a new OC was hired and the team went in a completely different direction. That hurt his stock.

Re: Pierre = Real Deal?

Ok so where on the Saints roster do they have a TRUE #1 RB?

Duece? Not anymore. It won't happen. He should retire.
Stecker? No
Bush? Not Really
Thomas? ??????????? We all hope that the kid turns out to be the next Tony Dorsett but it isn't likely. My problem is that I don't think he can hold up the whole season and I'm sure the other Bozos are ready to carry the full load.

No I do not like the pick myself I think media hype has knocked him into the top 20. Like QB, WR, CB and S the quality is not there this year in round 1. The glamor positions are not that great.

So if you don't think Thomas can hold up what makes you think whomever our pick would be in the first round would hold up at RB. And if the other teams wait on a RB why wouldn't the Saints. Just think of the money you save if you pick up a projected first rounder in the second or early third round.

We all know that Stecker is not the answer. The real question is what happens if Brees goes down. If Brunell come in, we will have to rely more on running to control the game. If that's the case, who do you rather turn to? I really think the Saints are so luck that Brees has held up. So the real question is what happens if we get injuries to important people on offense?

Let's say for a minute that Brees is out.
Brunell is in. Duece doesn't return to form. If Thomas can't hold up, do any of you really want Stecker to be the man? We may be 6-4 when this all happens. This is why Payton should select offense with our first pick and take Mendenhall. Personally, I think Duece's days are over and he should retire.

If Duece retires on April 15th, it changes our draft stagety. Then our most important need is to replace him.

Question: How may games do you want to lose waiting for Duece to return to form? My answer is NONE. That's why you need to get some STRONG INSURANCE/REPLACEMENT!!!

What ever the pick, the man in my avatar will draft Duece's replacement early in the draft.

Hiel Hitler!!

OK ...fess up! How much is Mendeeeeeeee paying out to keep promoting him?


LMAO!
