Earth to CantonLegend...come in CantonLegend....

The very fact that this is floating around in your head concerns me.

PT can do absolutely anything Stecker can do, and do it better. Plus he's younger and probably cheaper. I'm even starting to scratch my head about Deuce...his injuries concern me alot, and I can tell he's lost a step or two.

its easily said that ne running back can do what stecker does...but over the past several seasons stecker has done what we needed on a more consistant basis than nebody on the team...PT is not stecker....he has played one season...he doesnt have the experience and knowledge that stecker has....and there is no way to tell the PT does it better....u cant throw out opinionated facts lol....its obvious that i like stecker and that wasnt what the thread was about....if everyone is so in love with PT....whats to say that we cant get ne thing for him?....he showed up last year....no doubt...he stepped up and did as well as ne rookie minus adrian peterson but thats a different topic alltogether....i like PT which i think ppl are misunderstanding....if he does what he did last year....why wouldnt he be tradeable?....he can be a backup on ne team....and it doesnt matter if we would trade him and a draft pick to get something or someone.....y is that so inconceivable?

Sigh.

Let's remember that last year we went into the last game with only our 4th string running back.

Every position has a backup for a reason.

PT23 also plays special teams.

Finally even if Deuce is healthy, and remains healthy, it would be good to have a back that can give him a blow and still be productive running the football.

PT23 is cheap. He's productive. He plays special teams.

So why in the world would you want to get rid of him?

Why don't you think multiple backs can be rotated even when they are all healthy. There were times in 2006 when Stecker came on the field even when Deuce and Reggie were fine.

So why not use PT23 to suck up some of those carries for Deuce so that he'll be available and fresh for the times when we really need him?

Why would the Saints want to trade their future starting RB, either this year or for sure next year, with Deuce getting old and health problems?

Canton lets start here.

Question 1: Can Stecker still produce?

Question 2: Has PT shown potential?

Question 3: Is Stecker good enough to groom his replacement?

I answered yes to all 3. To bad Stecker signed a one year deal worth 1.4 million. I was hoping for at least a 2 or 3 year deal. But the saints could or would not do it. I think PT has their vote and Stecker is his mentor this year. No RB drafted hint at also.

Re: Is pierre tradeable?

This ground control to Major Canton...

It getting very hard to understand why your treating PT23 this wwwaaaayyyyaaaeeeaaaa..

You gotta love old David Bowie.

Anyway... in no way do we trade PT. Papz hit the nail on the head.

1. We won't get alot in return for him.

2. The kid is, I say again, IS going to be our RB of the future.

Upside. PT's got it. Stecker does not. He's only going to decline at age 32.

Re: Is pierre tradeable?

Everything Stecker does/did/could do for this team is why he's still on the team. V E R S A T I L I T Y. He was never meant to be our first or second back (why do you think Deuce is still here?). PT23 is being groomed for the position.
