I'll always be crazy about the pass, but there is something so sublime cramming it down their throat.

PT is the best running back we've got. I hope he's the feature back personally. Don't get me wrong I am still an Ingram supporter, and have been sinced he stepped on the field for Alabama, but he just doesn't look as fluid running the rock as PT does. Thomas makes it look effortless.

And he is the King of Screen Plays without a doubt!

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

Career stats so far

Pittsburgh spent a number one pick for him.

We got him as a UDFA

Re: Pierre Thomas wants the Saints to have 100 yards rushing per game 'non-stop'

We'll have to see what a year off taught "pass happy" Payton.
30/30 has always appealed to me, and it always sounded good rolling off of
Sean's lips during interviews. Actually seeing that kind of balance was always difficult.
Averaging near 4 ypc, and then getting less than 10 carries just rubbed me the wrong way.
When a runner starts breaking a sweat and building momentum, I say give him the rock.
It also gives the O-line a mental advantage and trench control.
Our great delimma is that Brees gets HOT and the old school grind has to take a back seat
to the greatest show on turf. I understand that.
If we run for +100 every week, we are back in the Superbowl.
Pierre can easily get 20 touches per game, but it would probably be only 12 carries or so.
If Pierre gets 20 touches, what's Ingram and Sproles doing?
I'm a man of faith, but I'll believe Saints/Payton/Brees run/pass balance when I see it.

His idea of balance may be a bit different than most. I'm going to keep harpin' on defense though. If you're up by two scores going into the fourth and you know (or at least shoulda known) the other team's gonna score three times on you, runnin' isn't as attractive an option as it should be.

The only thing the Falclowns are poised to do is lay an egg, as usual.

Your "Blue and Silver" is starting to turn all the way into "Black and Gold"!

I love it!
