Are you thinking what I have been thinking during this offseason: What about Pierre Thomas?

Don't forget Pierre?

All we have heard this off season is: Reggie, Reggie, and Goodbye Deuce.

All I can say too is: what about Pierre? 

ESPN making some dumb prediction that the Saints will need to pick a running back in the 2009 Draft? 

ESPN = Retarded—that's all I can say about them.  

Thomas, the 5'11'' 210lbs running back for the New Orleans Saints, is a big bruiser who has not only proved himself to be more than capable of replacing Mcallister, but he will also be carrying the load into the 2009 season.

Thomas, with seven rushing and two receiving touchdowns in his 2008 season, which he was just playing around—wait until he is really playing some football.

So if you are wondering and saying: what about Pierre?

Don't need to say it anymore, New Orleans is saving the best for last, and the last will be announced NFL opening day of the 2009 season. 

Look for an exciting season with Thomas and the New Orleans Saints.
