I don't mean to sound ungratefull for what he has done but....... he's had maybe 2 good punt returns. This year each time he catch's the punt/kick off he bobbles the ball. His yards per return have to be worse then Cartwright at this point.

Maybe Banks has arrived and is taking over? I saw that they didn't put him out there in second half.
Eh, kick returns and punt returns seem different. Thomas is built better for kickoffs while Banks seems better suited for punts. Back in my high school days I was the wedge buster on kickoffs, and so I speak from experience when I say that kickoffs are more violent then punt returns. I also got to do it when I sneaked in to play 8th grade football, before I got caught at least.

Challenge Accepted Devin Thomas current average of 28 YPR is 6 yards higher then Rock Cartwrights average of 22.3 in 2009. I only compare these two years to compare with the rule changes. On top off that the 28 YPR average that Devin has posted so far is higher then any average Cartwright posted. Also for the record right now Cartwright is averaging 19.3 YPR.

If we're initializing all the trade talk what leverage are we bringing into the negotations?

Shanny knows he has a guy that is just not going to crack the roster no matter the opportunity granted.

He's a dead roster spot if he can't touch the field with less than elite talent ahead of him.

Putting a player on the block doesn't mean he's not valuable. Heck, cutting a player doesn't either.

Thomas doesnt return punts.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

What the hell does the guy do or not do that doesn't even give a chance to get on the field in front of someone like Banks? Baffled. No way in hell he runs routes in as limited a fashion as a guy like Banks does. No way.

I feel this is a questionable move. We need to atleast see what he can do during the games on offense.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

And why trade him before letting him show something? Ugg. We're not gonna get much for him...might as well take a chance and let him improve his trade stock.

You might as well chalk Heyward-Bey up there. That'll get the pessimists excited about direction this team is headed...

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

After seeing what he did late last season, I find it hard to believe that he can't surpass AA & Galloway to at least get a screen or two thrown his way. I'm not saying the guy is all that, it just looks like it is attitude related & Shanny is making an example out of him.

If the coaches are really changing the culture of the team, maybe the approach towards Haynesworth & DT will have a valuable long-term impact. Seems both are better than some of the guys playing ahead of them.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

my guess if they are going to deal him, Carolina may take a look. They aren't really sure how long Steve Smith will be out and they really have no one else worth a damn.. But i wouldn't expect much in return from them. They are notoriously cheap

Galloway maybe. AA, definitely not. At the very least AA is going to be our slot guy for the next 3 or 4 years.
