Re: How Can the Skins Possibly Overcome THIS???

Coughlin: Okay Thomas, tell us everything you know about the Redskins offense.

DT: Ummmm, well, I know they have a playbook. It's pretty thick. Kinda heavy. I think there are some drawings and words and stuff inside it.

Coughlin: <sigh> Okay. Did you ever look at the "words and stuff"?

DT: Sometimes, between modeling gigs. Kinda boring. Usual football stuff - run this way, run that way. I just sorta made it up as I went along.

Coughlin: <shaking head> Well, as you "went along", did you pick up on any particular tendencies of Coach Shanahan's offense? You know, things he did on a regular basis in certain situations?

DT: Oh yeah. He had a lot of "tendencies". He had a tendency to get mad when I couldn't run the same route twice in practice. He had a tendency to yell at me for running to high through my routes. He had a tendency to shout at me for not being exactly where he wanted me to be on a play. Man, he was filled with damn tendencies!

BTW, sorry for dropping that pass, I was up late last night working my modeling portfolio and am feeling a little out of it this morning. So, when do I get to play coach? I can't wait to take a sh** on Mike Shanahan and the Skins to show them what a mistake they made. Did you ever see the game film of me in New Orleans? I am da man and will hook you up!

Coughlin: Well, how well do you know our playbook?

DT: You mean that thick thing with the pictures and words and stuff? Well, I looked at it while I was talking to my agent about a record deal. I am good with it.

Coughlin: You know Thomas, I don't think you're going to see much action this Sunday.

DT: <mumbling> goddamn tendencies.

Re: How Can the Skins Possibly Overcome THIS???

An article on Thomas in HailMagazine.com:
iMirus Online Digital Reader

The format was a pain, and after reading it, I found DT to be a bit clueless. You ever talk to someone, and all they here is what they want to hear? That sounds like Devin's responses here. I wasn't in the meeting, but I have been in several where you are trying to tell someone what needs to be improved, and you give several positives to emphasize that it's not all negative.

If my boss, and my boss' boss, and the president of the company all say the same thing as a negative, I would tend to get the impression I need to fix that. It sounds like he came away feeling, "hey it's all good", and that just wasn't the case, obviously. He also talks about how Zorn knew how to use him, but if I remember correctly it wasn't until Zorn was stripped of playcalling duties that he got on the field and did good for a few games.

Haha, yeah as others are saying who cares about DT. He could barely understand the introduction to the playbook.

Some of you will remember this more accurately than I would, but didn't the same kind of thing happen with Lavar? He said he brought his playbook and I think it was CP who said who cares, he never learned the playbook when he was here?

DT is the least of our worries on Sunday.

We will be running the Brandon Banks Wildcat anyway and that wasn't in the playbook when Devin was here!

Thank you SCP.

I thought my call for a Congressional inquiry into this dastardly plot was sufficiently over the top for folks to realize I wasn't serious about this.

They can't....suicide is the only option.


Don't the Giants have a history of doing this sort of thing? I suppose we can change our play signals thought it really doesn't matter what we do. We're not winning the f'ing game.

This run at a playoff spot has absolutly no feel of the ones durring the 05-07 seasons.

Re: How Can the Skins Possibly Overcome THIS???

Asking Devin Thomas about the playbook is like asking GTripp to explain why DT is a Pro Bowl caliber player........ you're going to get NADA!

Re: How Can the Skins Possibly Overcome THIS???

The way this team is hobbled right now it's anybody's guess what Sunday's outcome will be. With what we have left I can't imagine any kind of sustained attack against the Giants with or without DT's help.
