Every Monday, Senior Editor John Paulsen takes to Twitter (@4for4_John) for Thinking Inside the Box, where he tweets different stats and tidbits from Sunday's box scores. There's always a wealth of interesting information, so we decided to compile it here for subscribers.


Let's start with the Saints. Was asked earlier if #FreePierre is dead? Expecting more than 67 total yards, but that's nothing to sneeze at.

Though I don't know why you would sneeze at something unworthy. Just leave it be. Rumors that Ingram is disgruntled and toes are tricky.

Pierre Thomas's snap % rose from 30% to 38% to 56% in first three weeks.

Preseason star Khiry Robinson got four snaps and had four carries for 38 yards, all on the final drive.

Jimmy Graham is on pace for 123-1909-21.

Lance Moore's snap % has decreased from 75% to 64% to 45% in three weeks. Played 55% last season. 7.3 T/G in '12, 3.7 in '13.

Moore's snaps are feeling the pressure from Stills (season high 77%) and Meachem (36%).
