[QUOTE]"I think just my ability to hit it hard, explosive, don't slow down, no fear, just hit it and try to hit that hole," Thomas said. "If it's there, I'm telling you I'm going to the house. I'm waiting to do it."[/QUOTE]


One thing I like about DT, that I don't see in our other players, is that desire to take it to the house. On MKs good catch and run, I still don't know how he didn't get in the endzone, but that's just me. I realize others may have that same fire, but it just seems to burn through when I see DT running. Of course, all that said, he isnt lighting up our TD stats, so maybe I am wrong

No I think you're right. He's been showing great effort lately when the ball is in his hands. I think he's ready to make some noise.

Good the more touches he gets in the game, the better he will be.

He's looking much more confident. i like the wr screen to him as well. I'd like to see more quick slants to him & if we can protect he can get deep. i would like to see more shots to him as opposed to going to Moss every time they throw deep.

Overall, you've got like his development. It might be slow, but if he progresses a little more this year next year he might be ready to breakout.

Would not help much using him on the deep pass unless he is 12' tall.

What I like is that opportunities are coming his way and they're playing to his strengths. Let him run with the ball, don't just send him on deep post patterns

Why they didn't think of trying this earlier in the season is beyond me. :doh:

He got some runbacks in preseason & in one game I believe he got a couple ko returns. He hasn't looked as good doing it til now though.

Excellent! I'm glad to finally see Thomas starting to be utilized more. I think he has great potential to be a solid WR.

Still not happy with Malcom Kelly though.

But he had a 1st round grade!

I'm really happy with the way were using him in our offense as of late and this can only help him improve.

Honestly with receivers, I really don't think it matters if they're a first rounder or a 7th rounder. It's not often that a top round receiver makes an instant impact.

i like it the more dt and mk have the ball in their hands the better, not only do we need to see what they have, but from the little i have been able to seeof them they both have been making huge strides in the past few weeks
