As the New Orleans Saints cleared out their lockers a few days after their shocking playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas talked to reporters about their uncertain futures in New Orleans.

The Saints kept the right guy. While former No. 2 overall pick Bush was a non-factor on Sunday as his new team, the Miami Dolphins, fell to 0-2, the perpetually underrated Pierre Thomas, undrafted out of Illinois in 2007, helped the Saints (1-1) win a game they had to have against the Bears.

Watch him on screens, though, and he provides a textbook example of how to set up blocks and make the most of plays. His 12-yard gain in the second quarter was the perfect illustration, as he slowed down to wait for the linemen to get in front of him, found the gap they created and picked up a key first down to the Chicago 18.

Pierre runs with so much heart when he plays, People underestimate his size, everytime he gets hit he keeps trucking for more yards and his balance is incredible. We definitely kept the right guy, that screen play they mention for 12 yards was what Pierre does so well, the guy is a tough football player

Pierre needs more touches. You can tell he's dying to run.

Absolutely. We're so strong with him in there. PT, Ingram and Sproles are a site to see!

Yep, and several of us knew it a lonnnnng time ago Guerry.

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

There is a reason he kept other fan favorite Mendenhall on the bench at Illinois.

Pierre runs very hard these days. It is obvious it is him with the ball even if you can't see the number because he is the one whose legs keep moving and churning until he hits the ground.

PT is gaining my respect back quickly.

PT may not be a burner but he has some of the best instincts as a runner and his field vision at time is amazing. But the thing that stands out the most to me is the simple fact he seems to love the game and bought into giving 110% way back when. He plays with heart.

I want to see him stay at 60% of the carries. The team just seems to play better with him in there. They rally around him.

I loved this article. You have to read the whole thing. If we would have had PT in the playoffs last year, things would have been different...
