coming from someone who didnt have a lot of respect for pierre thomas, i believe we should keep him because he is our best back right now

he breaks more tackles per game than any running back i see and has improved a lot on carrying the ball correctly and holding onto it tight

as of now i really dont see a lot of improvements that he can make and i still dont believe he increased his squats that much or whatever somebody said this offseason but the dude is a baller

he deserves a new contract

Yea, but that's true about EVERY player.

Pierre Thomas is one of the best backs in the league, you definitely don't lose him. He gets 5.4 yards a carry; better than Adrian Peterson and close to Chris Johnson. The amount of carries is the only thing that separates them; and thats because we have a good RB core.

Re: Should the Saints re-sign Pierre Thomas?

I think he's our 3rd most important free agent to re-sign.

1. Jammal Brown
2. Jahri Evans
3. Pierre Thomas

And I know he's not a FA, but re-doing Brees' contract is a must. I can see Brees taking all of Grants 2010 money, and probably most of Reggies too.

So...when the question is asked in regard to PIERRE Thomas, who gets it right?

jeanPIERRE...that's who!

he doesnt get to ask.. he is a restricted FA; the saints more then likely will place the 1st n 3rd round tender on him and let him talk to other teams; if the other team signs him the saints can match and automatically win or can let him walk and take the 1st n 3rd round pick

Re: Should the Saints re-sign Pierre Thomas?

are you serious... I won't even vote this is so stupid.

Although we are going to have to make room in our backfield for LT... he's coming, for some reason I think he is going to be a Saints. Brees may have already spoke to him last off season.

Not to mention a lights out passing game. It was the Thomas extra effort yards that lit a fire under us early in the 2nd quarter. But he has run like that all year for us. He runs hard and breaks lots of tackles doing it and "rarely" puts the ball on the ground. He's a good back and fits well into our schemes. Pay the man.

Re: Should the Saints re-sign Pierre Thomas?

we need more of a pounder than another finesse back. l.t. would be another national attention getter but lock up p.t. first. i really think payton loves hamilton. so he won't be going away.

It's all about the fight in the dog. Sign the 3rd most effective RB in the League last season and move on to more pressing problems.
