I think people are confusing tenure and stats with leadership.

I clearly remember reading about a rift in the locker room last year that involved PT, Jimmy Graham, Galette and now maybe I'm thinking Lofton too...?

Well Gallette has shown time and time again he had no business being a captain, he couldn't keep his mouth shut on twitter and the legal BS could of been the last straw with Payton. I really hope they find a way to move on from him and I like Gallette (the player).

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pats take him if they dont re-sign Vereen

True, but in effect we got rid of Sproles for LB Ronald Powell (the man drafted with the 5th rounder from the Eagles). Something tells me that Sproles had more value to the team...


As for PT, he was not ran into the ground with lots of touches so I think he had more left in the tank than your typical 30 year old RB.

He knew the system, was a good blocker, a good runner, and a master of the screen pass. Dude gave it 110% on the field at ALL TIMES. I hate to see a guy who was so always who did everything they asked him to. I would argue he was NOT used enough...


If this ends up with us getting a good young back, then whatever. If this $$ goes to resigning Mark Ingram then I have to question what they're smoking. Ingram is not worth a big paycheck and stays hurt too much...

Re: Pierre Thomas released...

So many good memories of PT, mostly him getting our team going after sluggish starts.

Super bowl 44, the colts could not tackle PT with one player, at one point in the first half 3 players hit him and managed to stay on his feet for another 8 yards afterwards.

2011 NFCCG vs lions - Lions pretty much whooped us the entire first quarter until we started throwing screens to PT, who once again bounced off every tackler the lions could throw at him. One screen play looked like it would lose 3 yards but PT dodged 5 players and got 15 yards from it.
