I'm all for this, Rock can actually be our running back now and we can put a returner to run back kicks.

Re: Thomas expects to see more time on kickoffs

Well it sounds like we're all agreed this is positive news.

Ever since I saw Devin run w/ the ball I thought he could be a playmaker...now he seems to have the right attitude as well. It's actually a real encouraging story amidst a season of gloom.

I am all for giving the young guys a chance to step up and get some playing time seeing how this is 'the lost season'

Sounds good to me. I've read where the reason he isn't getting alot of time is because Kelly and Thomas are also young and coming on, and why take time away from them? I've yet to see one of them catch a fade pass like Marco can though. Personally I wouldn't mind sitting Moss and El and giving all three of these guys more of a chance.

Re: Thomas expects to see more time on kickoffs

speaking of wide outa ... every time MARKO MITCHELL has been on the field and thrown to i see a catch, or him doing work away from the ball.... get him in the F@#!@in game man.

and yes i think DT is coming along AND i love the k/o duty.

Re: Thomas expects to see more time on kickoffs

Assuming the oline gels together a bit more I'd like to see a 5 wide-out set of Tana, Thomas, Kelly, Mitchell and ARL (in the slot). I think we'd see faster progress outta the younger guys this way...guess that's kind of obvious since they'd all get reps together.

I can understand and agree with this, but we really have to get him involved somehow anyway.. We can use him mainly for red zone plays only or something like that.. It's not like Moss is useful in red zone, Randle El is sometimes but I am certain that we can afford to sit Moss and Randle El when we are in red zone area.. That area is one of areas where we need to work on, we might as well try other things..

Call me "negative Nancy" but I just cannot get excited about anything the Skins are doing this year. I guess that it is good for the future of the team.

That, plus we can't throw our starting RB out there for kick returns!
