PT not going after all?

This is encouraging to me. PT is still our best all-around back and we still need him. In my opinion.

Pierre Thomas’ agent says things are “status quo” with Saints | ProFootballTalk

Things are always "status quo", until they stop being 'status quo". Teams were allowd to start talking to agents yesterday at noon, they can start talking and negotiating with players Tuesday...

Nothing would surprise me at this point... stay or go..

Hope he stays. Still one of the most underrated running-backs in the NFL.

I don't mind him staying. I still think we need to shorten this rotation and keep Mark Ingram on the field more often. Two back rotation. Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson (aka Trent Richardson) with the occasional Pierre Thomas (aka Eddie Lacy). I hate it had to be a Bama reference...yuck.

I'm more than likely in the minority on this but I think it is time to make some moves with the roster. If we were going to keep a veteran running back around it would have been Sproles. If the idea is to improve our running game, and move to a power running game then Ingram and Robinson are the guys to go with. As much as I like Thomas, and what he has done for the organization, 3.7 yards a rush is 3.7 yards a rush. It just won't cut it moving forward.

3.7 ypc behind an O-line that was always one snap away from getting Brees killed is good in my book.

Once the O-line is stabilized, PT will be back to cruisin'.

Not necessarily. PT is 30 now right? Bad time for running backs.

Ingram also has to pick up his game though. I think party why PT isn't going is not to put all our eggs in one basket.

Chances are they are going to find a diamond in the rough that they can just plug in... like they have time and time again it seems.

Not likely. Both Ingram and Robinson averaged a higher yards per carry on far fewer carries. I love Pierre but his time has come and gone. It happens to everyone.
