Re: Is pierre tradeable?

Which of our 4 RB had a YPC over 4 yards?

Our 2nd overall pick? No it wasnt Reggie.

Our other 1st round pick? No Deuce went out early with a injury

Our 3rd down back? Nope it wasnt Stecker.

Our undrafted 4th string RB? PT had the highest average per carry so he is my obvious choice to be traded or maybe just cut from the team. I dont care how he became a Saint or where he went to college if he can average 4.5 YPC I say give him a couple more chances and get him involved in some games a little earlier in the season.

All I want out of PT is a solid #3 for the future. If we get him up to the #2 position we got on of the best steals in draft history. No one and I mean no one will ever replace Duce. But we do need to keep our eyes open. The clock is ticking.

pierre wont be dueces replacement but there is no doubt that the kid has talent. Reggie isnt an everydown back. if he was he would have more TDs than fumbles. everydown backs dont fumble that much. i hope he secures the ball more this season because that will mean he has an even bigger upside than he did when we drafted him. PT isnt a pounder tho but i dont think he needed to be to be effective last season. he did more or less exactly what stecker did. PT and stecker could be a good 1-2 punch but without a true knockout starter like duece or reggie we wont have that great run game that we've prided ourself on

Well, I hope you guys are wrong, because if PT can't hang replacing Deuce and the Coaches and FO really expected Deuce's knees to hold up all season long and had no backup plan at all, then I will be leading the mob with pitchforks and torches to Metaire

despite everything i gotta agree with u....we gotta have a backup for deuce...if PT cant do it we are in trouble...i'd love for him to be there for us like u think he can....but i just dont see it....i think everybody is with u tho....we want him to be the replacement but only if he steps up and continues on pace

You guys keep mistaking me for a PT believer or a PT fan. I am not saying that I believe in PT as a starting RB, I am saying I think the coaches believe he is a starting RB. That is it. There are too many question marks around Deuce for the coaches to have no backup plan. PT is of a comparable size with Deuce, he may have a different running style, but I think PT will have a much easier time up the middle than Reggie. Not really because of size or strength, but because of mentality. Reggie is the wind. He is an uncatchable object, not an irresistable force.

And, the one thing no one has mentioned, we have Karney too. We would need a bit more help blocking in Karney playing the hammer in short/goals... No wonder Payton wants Shockey so much! Now I really get it.

Re: Is pierre tradeable?

cheese louise, Canton, I thought you'd lost your mind.

This is a thread from last year, ok... now it makes sense.

Tell yall what, that twist/spin move into the endzone vs. Patriots
on the screen was a fantastic move. Its a shame the greatness
of that move by Pierre got lost in all the excitement. Amazing move,
and quite underrated.

PT was actually one of the few consistent ones on my fantasy team.
