Re: Devin Thomas

Here's the answer to our doubts...we should've picked up a veteran. Who? I don't know. But a proven vet free agent would have contributed right away. Now, the Thomas/Kelly pick was a good one, for the future of the team. But obviously we need someone that can contribute right away. So two things will happen...either a.) Our offense gets better b/c the problem last year was Gibbs conservative offense or b.) we realize that we still need a posession receiver that can contribute right away, and don't have that b/c these rookies are far away from contributing.

For some reason I haven't seen Zorn do any of that, now I obviously don't know what plays are getting called but I haven't seen anything where I felt that they were just trying to get Thomas the ball - no slants, no screens nothing. Has anyone else noticed the same thing?
Interesting point. All I will say is if you're going off of pure production, wasn't D. Jackson the best wr in the draft? He played against top college talent and his production was high and he played in a pro style offense. His only knock was his size. But it seems that our front office was very worried about the size of our wr's and maybe over looked production. Time will tell. It's still early.

Re: Devin Thomas

Thomas hasn't done much to earn balls coming his way. He's still working his way back and Thrash is entrenched as the #3 right now. I don't see why Zorn should be going out of his way to have passes go Devin's way.

Re: Devin Thomas

From a production stand point D. Thomas numbers were as good as anyones in the draft, the big knock on him going into the draft was he a one year wonder. I really hope that he is able to snap out of the funk he's been in because the skins are going to need either him or Kelly to contribute this season if they are going to be successful.

Re: Devin Thomas

The reason they should be at least looking his way is because they have to see what he can do. I am not saying throw the ball his way 10 times a game but at least throw him a screen and see what he can do once he gets the ball in his hands. This thing about "earning balls" doesn't make sense if you are throwing at guys you are going to cut in a week.

Re: Devin Thomas

For everyone that thought that Thomas and Kelly were immediate impact players, think again...they are here for the long haul, and (I feel like Jim Mora) "preseason"???? We're talking about preseason?????

Relax. They weren't slated to be our #1 or #2...give it time. This is a precise reason why I do not watch preseason...it means nothing!!!!!

Exactly because you are going to cut one or two of them and not all of them is why you throw at them in preseason, to see which one can produce the best at game speed. Thomas, and Kelly, will be on the team, they will get their chances to grow and produce. The coaches in preseason are evaluating the talent at the cut line. They haven't thrown many balls at Cooley, is anyone really afraid that they won't use him in the regular season. I don't think so.

Re: Devin Thomas

Keep in mind a WR that comes straight out of the gun as a superstar is a pretty rare commodity. Kelly has always been an excellent possession receiver in college and thomas was brought here for his raw talent as a project.
