I agree....sort of. I think you are half-right saying that the other RB's felt they needed to produce to get more touches with the way Bell had been playing. However, PT did everything he has ever done when he has been on the field. He produced. Over 120 yards rushing, two scores, and 9 YPC? This game was huge for him, and as long as he stays healthy, he should get the majority of the touches. He is pretty dangerous and has a great nose for the endzone.

Re: Pierre Thomas BAM!

I love the way the Saints stuck to the ground game, and completely wore out the Bills in the end. It was obvious Brees was not going to have a great day, so it was great to see the other areas pick it up.

Re: Pierre Thomas BAM!

Bobby Hebert always like to say on WWL that "4 YPC is getting it done".

Saints today:

PT - 9.0 ypc
RB - 4.9 ypc
LH - 4.8 ypc

Brees usually has a subpar game or two each year. AWESOME that we got a win during today's "human" performance...

That is "getting it done" and then some.

This is an EXCELLENT POINT ... We are SO STACKED at RB ... That will be huge for us later in the season (and it is now), but especially then.

Great post arsaint.

I was amused at one of the pregame shows saying something to the effect of Bell being out and the Saints would have to go with Thomas.

It almost sounded like we were having to pick someone up off the street instead of the fact that he was our primary back last year.

Re: Pierre Thomas BAM!

I think Zach Strief came in for Bushrod and played extremely well especially on PT's first TD run.

Re: Pierre Thomas BAM!

Man, to me Zach Strief should be considered team MVP. He is playing blocking TE, filling in on the line, this dude is everywhere and playing great football. Well, the MVP talk is a little bit of a reach, but I think everyone can agree that his contributions are major factors to the Saints success in both the passing and running game. Lining him up at TE is just lethal for opposing defenses. All he does is open more running lanes and gives Brees even more protection. I love the way Sean Payton is using him!

Re: Pierre Thomas BAM!

Got to give Heath Evans credit too... he's an outstanding run blocker.
