Thomas' routes look very lazy, at least on the few occassions where they replayed the coverage. I don't have good feelings about the guy developing. I'm afraid we still have the problem we've had for a few years, lack of a #2 wr playmaker.
If anything, I actually really liked Thomas on kickoff returns. I think that could be his niche.

Thomas was never on any returns I saw.

Not since maybe week one I think.

If anything he got the same yardage Cartwright does but is more of a threat to take it to the house.

I agree TMC. Frankly I am done with Rock. We need to get Thomas involved somehow.

Rock looks like he's running in slo-mo this year.

People can talk about Zorn, talk about Campbell all they want, but then after that they want us to draft linemen. We can't have it both ways. If we end up drafting another QB (most likely a first round pick) then the cycle just begins again.

I want a highly touted OL with our first pick in the draft this year. I don't care what anyone wants to say, Campbell is a slightly above average QB and I'll take that any day of the week until our line has improved.
Do you really believe this front office will do that?

Malcom Kelly is all hype no catches and no TDs. I really don't see what many see in him. You want to see a tall receiver catching the ball? See Brandon Marshall vs the Cowboys. That right there is a how you catch the god damn ball.

Yeah -- I wonder if there's anybody here who still thinks these guys need more time, that we're expecting too much from second year receivers.

Shouldn't we be seeing something by now?

Huff is my man! He always played like he wanted to win, and I love to hear him and Sonny as color commentators. They've got their hearts into the game because they really care about the Redskins. If only some of the players would play with their hearts in games. I'd like to see Marko get into some games because all he did during the preseason was make great plays.

Re: Smoot lays the Smackdown (Redskins vs. Bucs)

I hear the frustration about Kelly and Thomas. I'm am with Thomas especially cause he supposedly worked out with JC over the summer. What I wonder is how much of their not doing so well is Hixon's fault. I know some have the attitude that they are professionals and should already know the little things like getting seperation, route running, hand placement and so on but I also keep hearing how some colleges don't go into those kinds of things.

Secondly how much of it is Hixon saying "you will run the route like this or you will sit on the bench." No different then what Zorn said in regards to changing certain plays at the line of scrimmage? These WR's were supposed to be the elite of their class taken in the 2nd round and yet we have trouble getting the ball to them. Thomas looks slow on some routes. Heck just give Thomas go routes either toward the seam or up the sideline. That alone would utilize his speed and pull a couple of defenders out of the zone.

Also put Thomas on KR/PR if they are not going to use him elswhere. We need his speed. You can teach when to field a ball and when not to but you can't teach exceptional speed.

I wish they would. We really need a good OT and OG IMO.

Re: Smoot lays the Smackdown (Redskins vs. Bucs)

We are bad on offense (in case you haven't noticed). Our receivers and o-line are useless. We only have TWO plays that get us positive yardage:

1. Campbell running for his life, scrambles for an 8 yard gain.

2. Campbell running for his life, finds Cooley downfield.

Don't take my word for it. We are 2-2 and playing an 0-3 team this week. Yet we are 5.5 point underdogs. We can spin it anyway we want but Vegas says we suck, and Vegas knows best.

I don't believe it, but I'd like to see it.

Kelly....Where is Marko Mitchell? I'm tired of both Kelly and Thomas.

Rogers...His job is to cover the other teams WR, not catch the ball. So as bad as he is at catching the ball, let's all remember he's a DB, not a wr.
I completely agree -- Thomas and Kelly have not shown a nose for the ball or that they can do a lot with it after the catch. I would give Marko Mitchell a shot and see what happens. At this point, what do you have to lose? I was also surprised we weren't throwing to ARE is the slot -- when you don't have great protection, a quick slant should produce 4-5 yards, which seemed to be the amount we needed on most of our 3rd downs, coincidentally.
