Alvin Kamara has best traits of Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; "I think he's got the balance of Pierre. Pierre had incredible balance with his feet always on the ground, able to break tackles, using the ground as a leverage point. That's a rare quality that (Kamara's) got," Brees said. "He's ...

That's a rare quality that (Kamara's) got," Brees said. "He's super explosive, though.

Re: Alvin Kamara has best traits of Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush

Kamara is an ALL PURPOSE BACK nightmare. Kuechly and Davis are a terrific LB tandem but it's a bad match up.

Stats from Carolina defense since week 10:

32nd in pass defense.
25th in points given up.
31st in yards per game given up.

I've tried to look at this match up as objectively as I can but Carolina is gonna have problems on Sunday.

Time to really look for a 3rd RB for this rotation. Add another PT type of player to the backfield would be huge.

Pierre Thomas RB Illinois 5105 209 4.65

Nothing fabulous numbers wise. Just a well round football player.

Would be nice... what type? Both Ingram and AK can be 1st and 2nd down backs. AK is also an excellent 3rd down back.

No type really. just a well rounded back that can do it all at solid level.

Two RB will probably go as UDFA

Jamal Morrow, RB, Washington State 5085 180 4.54 #25 rSr

I really like Marrow skill set.

Lavon Coleman RB Washington, 5112 235 4.59 #22 rSr


Needs some coaching but he is a baller

Instincts and talent are God given. Hard work and study are not. He is the total package apparently.

Kamara's style reminds me most of Gayle Sayers
