Glad he got that ext. With that being said I see him as more of a 3rd down back. With the other 2 running great at the end of the season I see them carrying the load early and often.

PT is probably gonna get around 10-12 touches a game and will be in the game in those critical drives. dude is clutch and doesnt make mistakes.

I hope they don't use the screen pass with Pierre as much, everyone has that figured out now.

Ready for the season to get going.

I think having some speed at wr will help. seems to me that teams just played at the line and manned up on our wrs most of last year.

And thats something we'll adjust to. I remember when the toughest games we had were teams that played soft zones and gave us the underneath stuff, just waiting for us to make mistakes. We had hard times against cover-2 teams.

Then along came Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles.

Now, as you said, teams are cheating up because we don't have as many deep threats and also because we had Nicks, Goodwin and Evans at the top of their game.

Then along comes Brandin Cooks and Kenny Stills.

Teams will find out pretty fast that cheating up isn't gonna work anymore.

The perpetual chess match.

I think he can still be quite effective if he's not over-used. About 10 touches per game should be his limit.
That's the thing though. He has always been used pretty sparingly. I think he still has a few good years ahead of him because of this.

Insurance policy if Robinson and Ingram don't step up.

Re: Pierre Thomas thought he played his final game with New Orleans Saints before two-year extension

I love me some PT and he is one of my favorite Saints, but he survived the offseason turmoil and was restructured at something of a pay cut. I'm glad he's here but at the same time, I still would not be surprised at all, to open my newspaper one morning in August and read that he is gone, traded to some team or other, if it's for a player we need or a pick in next year's draft to reload with. It might still happen. The pay cut actually makes him more attractive to a trading partner, the same way it makes him attractive to stay with the Saints. This talk of "I thought I'd played my final game in a Saints uniform" well in this league you NEVER know for sure about anything.
