Despite all the attention on Saints Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles, there’s no doubt Pierre Thomas will remain a part of the personality of the Saints offense. Like Ingram, Thomas is a complete and versatile back. He can run inside and outside and also can catch passes.
One of the best things about Payton’s offense is a lot of people are going to touch the ball. That means Thomas will get his chances.
The Saints have one heck of committee in their backfield. Pierre Thomas may be a good spot starter. Look for the Vet to get an extra 5-10% of the carries until Ingram finds his way.
