First, Reggie is the most scared, darting out of bounds RB I've ever seen in NFL history.... secondly, he goes down more easy than any other RB in history I've ever seen.... care to challenge that theory? can you think of another RB that darts out of bounds more than him? how 'bought one who goes down easier than the feather weight Bush?

i guess i missed those games

Did I say that?..... I complained that it makes no sense that the majority of posters were getting vocal and opinionated about Sharper wanting "too much" money along with what "they" thought was too much. I found it hypocritical (at the least) that all of the concerns for money vs. value when Reggie is set to be the highest paid RB in the NFL. And I questioned, would resigning Sharper be such a big deal if Reggie wasn't such a hit on the wallet?

If Reggie is a nightmare for defenses to face, what is Pierre? Isn't he just as effective? Can't he do all the things Reggie does, plus more?

can he do all the things reggie can do?

does pierre return punts?

did pierre set the record for most receptions of any rookie running back?

is pierre the best open field player we have on the team right now?

the answer to all of them is no

but if you replace the word "pierre" with the word "reggie" all of those answers become yes

Typically a number one RB doesn't return punts.

No, but Pierre did set the record for most rushing touchdowns in the Super Bowl by a Saint. I like that record better.

True, but the thing is, even though the answers are "no", the questions themselves are irrelevant.

Reggie does add an extra dimension of planning for opposing DCs, but I would much rather Pierre if we had to choose between the two.

You seem to be confusing the cake with the icing. A really good cake with no icing is much better than a pile of crap with a sweet frosty coating.

actually, up until just recently, starting running backs were the primary return men
