PT will always be one of my very favorite players. I have never seen that dude give up on a play. I still feel like every time he touches the ball something amazing is just about to happen.

My favorite RB in Saints history.
We would have never won the Superbowl with out him and we were taken out the playoffs when he was hurt on a play in the playoffs against the 49ers.

He is the screen king. No one does it better.

With the exception of Barry Sanders, I've never seen anyone run the screen better; timing, burst, instincts, feel...and just watching the yards peel away, destroying the opposition's pass rush...just incredible text book screen work...

Re: Brees: Thomas NFL's best all-purpose back

His vision after the catch, acceleration and ability to slip arm tackles is just amazing to me.
His extra effort plays in SB 3rd quarter changed the whole momentum of that game.
I still say the 49er playoff game would have unfolded much differently had he not gotten
his bell rung so early in the game.
All of his talk is on the field - I like that.
A quiet storm.

Not just arm tackles either, somehow PT manages to shrug off full on tackles and keep his legs moving
That was evident in the Superbowl when he caught a pass in the right flat, 3 colts defenders hit him and he managed to bounce of it and still get another 10 yards for a first down

PT is the man and will always be beloved by the fans, the guy is nothing but heart and my respect for him grew ten fold when I found out he played the NFCCG with broken ribs

I love me some PT, but Sproles deserves his due. Single-Season All-Purpose Yards Leader. He was insane in 2011.

He was clearly "targeted", but that's football...but there sure wasn't any SanFranGate Investigation over that rough play...

Re: Brees: Thomas NFL's best all-purpose back

I agree with this article and its prediction that PT will be the third down back. I don't anticipate Payton putting a RB in the backfield who is not a threat to run between the tackles effectively very often ever again. We became predictable with Sproles in the backfield last year.
