+1...I agree with this 100%. All the blah, blah, blah give him another year. Blah, blah, blah he's a product of the system. Blah, blah, blah he's not top 5 or 10 RB in the league. Blah, blah, blah let him finish his contract. Pierre may be a product of the system, but he's the best RB in this system and has proved it over the last year and a half. He gives his all on every down and has been an incredible asset for the offensive either running the ball or catching it out of the backfield. He has the best vision out of the backfield on the team. His motor never shuts off. He's scored 20 TD's in the last two seasons and add three more in the postseason. He is averaging 5.1 yards per carry in his short career. I'm not saying he has to be paid like a top 10 RB, but he definitely deserves a raise and some job security.

I say let's pay him. Also remembering it was the Saints who gave him his start.

Pay.

Or someone else will.

His stock is on the rise but I don't think Payton wants to sell.

He signed to league minimum and he earned it in his first two years. Last year he out performed his contract...how about we give him a substantial raise the last year of his contract and sign a new contract based upon this years production?

He is a class act all the way.I remember watching him in 2007 in spot duty and telling my dad that he was going to be great.He didn't let me down.He even rushed for 100 yards and caught for 100 yards in his first ever start.

Re: Pierre wants new deal but will not skip work outs..

I understand doing one's job, when it's the job they were hired for, and they made that commitment. The one thing I can't stand, is the fact that in ALL jobs these days, including the NFL, there is no such thing as job security anymore. Corporate heads, or managers themselves, never seem to notice hard work anymore. It's all about the bottom line, and how much money it will cost them. My father worked his butt off, for Georgia Pacific, for 35 years, and 5 years from retirement, he was replaced by a 22 year old kid, because they could pay him less money. My father got job offers from other companies, MANY times over the years, but because of his honesty, and sense of loyalty, he turned them all down. Now he has to drive a school bus, just to keep him and my mom, in some kind of health care plan.

"Life isn't fair." Yeah, I know that, but how did it get that way? Because instead of holding on to good employees, that dedicate their lives to their job, they downsize, and have the idea, "we can get someone else". As a matter of fact, as I'm typing this, I lost my job of five years today, to a guy half my age, because I was told that "he's younger, and is more reliable." This kid takes a vacation every other week, has been written up for numerous things, and thinks about only himself, not the rest of the business. I on the other hand haven't taken a vacation since i started there, have NO write ups what so ever, and have always put the needs of the many, against my own. That's what being a "team" is all about. Now I'm being transferred to a lesser club, for less money, for my trouble.

When you do a good job for someone, you should earn some kind of loyalty from the bosses. This entire attitude is why this country is in as much trouble as it is.

Pierre wants to get paid for the work he's done, and he's earned it by God. And this "wait and see" attitude is a bunch of bullcrap. Here's the bottom line, and I don't really care who disagrees with me: "Don't expect loyalty from someone, if you aren't willing to be loyal yourself." Do we really want to the Saints to get the reputation like this? Where every player coming in, KNOWS that no matter how well they do for us, that there's always a chance they will be gone tomorrow? You might think that this will make them play harder, but guys, if it becomes the norm for the Saints to do business this way, eventually, these players will stop caring if they do a good job or not,or they want come here in the first place.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....
