He's the most under-rated RB in the NFL IMO.

Jon Gruden has been saying this for years. No one tell Canton... he may still be in denial.

At least ONE of the most underrated

How will it end up at the end of the year?
1. Pierre has the 2nd most carries on the team but is 1st in yardage.
2. Pierre leads the team in carries and yardage.

Payton is either saving or pacing PT for some reason.
He is the most seasoned back and has better field vision than Ingram.
That may change at some point but for now, PT should be getting the bulk of the carries.
I remember in the Superbowl, Pierre had like a 17 yard run, breaking 3-4 tackles and the entire team started playing at a whole new level.
He goes out and does his job without a lot of fan fare, and does it very well.
Ingram needs to take notes from PT on how you set up blockers and cut-back NFL style.
I hope Ivory is looking too.

I for one am glad that Ingram has someone like PT to learn from and take tips from... it'll only make him into a more well rounded runner and - dare I say - hopefully that elusive "complete back."

Look, I was always skeptical of PT. I thought he was a great back, but was too injury prone and would never be able to carry the load. I was wrong. He is one of the most complete backs I can remember, and he seems to have rebounded from his injury. Hopefully with our stable of backs we can keep the load off of him and have his fresh legs throughout the playoffs. In a system like ours a back like PT can contribute at a very high level for a long long time. i am glad we decided to pay him.

i don't think there is a doubt we kept the right guy. nobody can get PT down on first hit, where the other guy had so many shoe string tackles is beyond belief. reggie is just too lite to be a rb. slot reciever is more like him.
