I don't care about the money aspect. I'm just tired of the Bush apologists in here, blowing him up to something he isn't, and never will be.
To this, I salute you

..... this is typical back-pedaling, subject changing, rhetoric of the modern day Bush fanatic. I'm certain if Reggie actually was the teams bada$$, elite player (like our teams T. Jones or Tomlinson) and played the featured role as expected... that all these "whatever" people would be constantly assuring interest in his counterparts that Reggie is the Man and you can't F--- with a good thing etc. The fact is, there is now little to no argument as to why Reggie should be the man and little argument

So, "I don't care, they both play for the same team" only sounds good, because there is no longer any valid argument for Reggie to be featured. I've seen arguments for the last 4 years in defense of Reggie and supporting the fact that he should get the majority of touches and that Pierre is a second string for a reason, and Pierre couldn't carry Reggie jock strap...etc...... well, as the roles have changed.... now, no Reggie fanatic cares, because they both play for the saints, right!

Re: Pierre Thomas is the Saints best back & a true fan favorite

Bush apologist here. (its all good, guys, my wife argues this with me too.)

Reggie is a walking highlight reel. He scores touchdowns, and he's a threat to take it to the house on any play, which is why sometimes he dances. You have high-percentage passing, right, you know, short, settle-for-a-couple-of-yards passes into the flat, right? Well Reggie is a "low-percentage" run, which by my logic makes him a long bomb! (bomb as in long pass, not like a bad movie) Yeah, he's gonna get a loss sometimes, but so did Barry Freakin Sanders.

Some guys score from the 5 by running over DB's. Reggie just jumps to the EZ. Does it matter? He jumps. He scores. Reggie is a part of New Orleans Saints history, and had a good chunk in saving our team from moving to San Antonio. Remember? Remember when they said we wouldnt buy tickets? Remember, "With the 2nd pick of the 2006 draft, the New Orleans Saints select...." ?

That, and he's had Kim K's lips around Oscar Meyer, which impresses me greatly. How many guys can say... ok, dont answer that. But I know your fat butt cant.

Reggie is a hero, and one of the faces of our franchise, and he brings us a lot of spotlight, and thats a good thing. So dont hate.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
PIERRE! The most underrated running back in the NFL, maybe because he has the unfortunate name Pierre, which people just dont equate with an NFL star. Seriously, rename the man "Trumaine," and hes on every other shoe commercial, the cover of Madden, and banging on at least Kloe, or possibly the other sister, who is hotter anyway. Watch his TD run at the Patriots game this year, and tell me he's an ordinary man. Look at the shock he absorbed going over the pile vs. Minnesota for the most important first down in our history. Power, speed, good hands, actually really good hands, and effective a the critical phase of the game that you armchair field generals dont see: QB Protection. Pierre came out of nowhere to be a Super Bowl star runner, unseating high draft picks, and loafers. He made highlights ever week when Reggie didnt.

And look at the smile on that young man. Wow, what a winner! Pierre was just finished working out in Mississippi training camp, soaked in sweat after the 105 degree workout. Nobody knew who he was or where he came from, and even fewer expected him to stay suited in a Saints Uniform come Opening Day. But there he was--- too good to ignore, the uninvited guy who just wouldnt go away. So its 400 degrees in Jackson, and the stars have gone to the whirpool, he stands there after practice and signs And poses for pictures with my kids, as if he was happy to do it. I love PT and you should too. Im rooting for him.

So, has it occured to yall that there are 45 spots on the roster, and plenty of room for Piere and Reggie? We kinda need 2 running backs at least. There really is room for both.

...And stop getting all SaintsReport-y with each other... You know the Indians considered debate to be for women. Im ready to buy soma yall a box of mini-pads. geez, I swear one of you is really rebdouche from over there.

thats all.
Love, me
