Re: Pierre Thomas Pain-Free Ready To Go!

I just hope this is true. The Saints really need PT to come up big in this post season. PT is the best running back the Saints have, and can really use one of those 25 carry performances right about now. Saints need a big time performance from the running game if there is any hope of beating Arizona. There is no way the Saints can leave Warner on the field and expect to win.

The only problem with a 25-carry performance is that it would have to be all of the runningbacks getting involved. The only individual that had over 20 carries in a game all season was Mike Bell in Week 1. Since then, no RB on the team has had more than 19 carries in a game. Even if Pierre is feeling no pain right now, I wouldn't rush him into carrying the load. He may feel some discomfort after a few hits. Mix it up like the beginning of the season when he, Bush, and Bell were all in the backfield together and keep fresh legs in there.

Re: Pierre Thomas Pain-Free Ready To Go!

True, keep them fresh and rotated. The main reason I believe PT has to carry the load is the performances of the other running backs has been pretty pathetic lately. I guess with a good rotation in order all will work out fine. I know overall there is no way anyone should complain about a combined 2100 yards rushing, but the Saints still have issues at RB that needs to be addressed after this season is over. When all three are healthy it's a very nice rotation, only problem is always someone injured or not playing well. Look at Bell for instance, he really fell of the charts as the season progressed. As for Bush and Thomas, often hurt. No clue at this point... Hopefully, the three headed monster will stick around long enough to win it all.

Agreed. Especially about Bell. He started off the season strong, but really regressed toward the end. He ended with a 3.8 YPC average. He just doesn't seem to be hitting the holes like he was at the beginning of the season.

If, and that's a big IF, Pierre can stay on the field and get 15 touches in the game Saturday and 65+ yards, that means the Saints are probably in control of the game....which means the Saints will probably win.
