Re: Devin Thomas

I thought everyone looked like crap last night, why do we have to single out Devin. The only player that looked good was man-crush Brennan.

offense stars: rock, mason, mcmullen, brennan, mann

defense stars: boschetti, richardson, hamilton, jets PK nugent

all these guys stood out the most to me that are fighting for spots. Mason continues to impress me over and over, he deserves to be on this team and be the backup if betts or portis was to go down. Mcmullen is catching my eye over and over this season. I would like to see Brennan behind a better and more consistent line because his time to throw is so limited at times. Mann was very solid and love the way he fought for yac. Boschetti was the big stand out on our back up line. Richardson looked very solid again in man coverage and loved his body slam tackle. Hamilton was huge on a few tackles and this guy is a gamer. love his tackle ability... but coverage??? dont know yet.

Don't forget the OL, both starters and backups. 3 games in a row the team has rushed for over a 100 yards.

slow down buddy, there were some positives in the o'line, but to many negatives especially rhinehart this game at LT. mid game we almost lost our back up qb, and devine and colt had very little time to throw. and if you noticed, i didnt mention any starters... this was an evaluation of guys trying to make the cut. run blocking was good, but pass blocking was very unimpressive especially in the 3rd and 4th qtr.

And Devin looked like a guy who has not practiced alot so we should give him til the end of preseason to evaluate him for this up coming season.

The majority of the backups are rookies and in my opinion are doing a great job in run blocking, pass blocking hasn't been too bad either. I know there were breakdowns, remember most of these guys are rookies, Clark, Rhinehart, Crummney.

Re: Devin Thomas

so far from what i seen, it appears our 2nd and 3rd string O linemen are blocking better than our starters, but then again maybe thats beacuse its preseason and their figthing for a spot on the roster=]

Re: Devin Thomas

He needs more time working with the QB's, if they aren't on the same page they aren't going to go to him. He should have shown up early to camp and in shape, he has alot of making up to do.

And maybe that is because they're going up against 2nd and 3rd string defenders. Speaking of backup O lineman, Chad Rinehart looked really bad last night. I was really disappointed with him.

He's not the savior guys come on. Just remember he isn't going to take us to the Super Bowl. Its the collection of weapons and recievers that will help us get there.

Re: Devin Thomas

I don't think one catch is too much to expect, especially in a preseason game.

There are plenty or rookies who've made their presence known so far in the preseason: David Clowney, Desean Jackson, Lavelle Hawkins, Eddie Royal, Josh Morgan, Martin Nance, Dominique Zeigler, Onrea Jones and many more have been able to show up against the practice squad bound defenses they've faced. Devin did not.

I'm not going to label him a bust, but you've got to admit that it's disappointing. And I'm sure there's no one more disappointed than DT either. Let's see if he bounces back next week.

Some have pointed out that Dwight Lowery was manned up on Devin most the night, and it looks like the Jets have found themselves a quality CB in the fourth round. I wish the same could be said for the Skins CB from the 4th.

Re: Devin Thomas

I want to take this time to let everyone know that patience is a frickin virtue!!

Devin Thomas will be in the starting lineup before week 5 of the regular season.

Mind you, he has yet to be seen with the first team and in cumbent started JAson Campbell. He has a looooooong time ahead of him.

My advice to everyone is to chill out.

I'm relieved to hear that you're not going to label him a bust after 1 preseason game! It's hard to compare DeSean Jackson to Devin Thomas. The Eagles have the same QB and offensive system they've been running for years. It's easier to try to integrate the rookie into a veteran system. The Redskins are taking veterans and trying to integrate all of them into a new offense. In his defense Devin was over-thrown a couple of times. He's no Art Monk or Jerry Rice, but it's completely unfair to expect that (especially right away).

HAIL!!

Re: Devin Thomas

You guys are hilarious.. Nevermind he practiced this week for the first time in nearly a month.. Nevermind he played his first game since January.. Nevermind he played with 4 different QB last night.. Dammit, we inducted one hall of fame WR 3 weeks ago and we expect Thomas to be the next one immediately!!!

If in Week 8 he plays 35-40 snaps a game and still doesn't have one catch, feel free to start asking questions, until then chillax!

Re: Devin Thomas

You beat me to it, Paintrain. People seem to forget he's been hurt for weeks upon weeks. He's getting back into it, he's a rookie WR -- who are typically uneventful for a few years, give the guy some time.

Re: Devin Thomas

I totally understand the he's just getting back from his hammy tweak, he's new to the NFL, it's just preseason, all that. I wasn't asking for him to be ready for a yellow jacket. I just wanted one catch. Man, even B Lloyd's got one catch. In all fairness though, Devin did have a decent return last night, and he showed great effort in snagging that poorly thrown Devine pass that was ruled out of bounds. Hopefully, things come together for him in Carolina next week. I might go now, just to see that.
