PFW: Thomas Making a Big Impression for 2009

From: Pro Football Weekly

We hear Pierre Thomas’ audition is going quite well. The Saints gave Thomas an opportunity to prove he can fill the vacancy left by Deuce McAllister, who isn’t in the team’s present or future plans, as New Orleans’ workhorse complement to Reggie Bush. In his last two games, Thomas has exceeded expectations, adding a jolt the running game lacked all year. He rushed for at least 87 yards in each contest and also scored four TDs. “I want to keep doing the right things,” Thomas said after the Saints’ Week 15 loss. “I want to keep my teammates having a positive feeling about me and keep my coaches having a positive feeling about me. … I’m just trying to take a step forward each and every week.” He’s set himself up for a prominent role in 2009, but the Saints are likely to shop to bring in some competition for Thomas.

    We need to trade Reggie Bush he still doesn’t know how to run between tackles.Pierre Thomas is a better runner.Reggie has been playing for three years and still don’t understand how to run between tackles. STOP dancing and run the ball.I’m sure tackle we can add to our offense and defense with a trade.
