Truly so. Let the cOuntdown begin- 4 years till Canton. Drafted in the 2nd round by respected and adored former GM VCerrato (known for his playful chuckling (and never cackling) laugh and amazing eye for talent). Idk what else to say just great guys doing great stuff.

Oh I forgot 2 things:
VCerrato the reason of the 49ers success and even the reason they won super bowls before he even worked for team.
DThomas, able to carry his team thru the season and into the super bowl all on his back.

God has blessed me w achieving a childhood dream. I want to give back to my hometown and coach/mentor kids so they can reach their own. 1LUV

Good for him.
What will these kids really learn from him? How to clear a room b/c noone respects you?

just because he's a crappy player doesn't mean he's a crappy person.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

Not sure why all the personal attacks on DT. Like a lot of wr's that get drafted high, he didn't pan out. I didn't see any Brandon Lloyd in him.

If you even sniff a training camp invite; you are a elite football player. I am sure he has plenty to pass on.

Here is a thought maybe he can coach up a kid to the point that he gets a college scholarship. Just because you don't make it on the NFL doesn't mean you are a bad football player.

Because a lot of guys on here act like teenage girls and when a player doesn't pan out they way they envisioned them to they treat them like the boy that didn't ask them to the prom.

In simpler terms their panties get all bunched up.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

Yeah I've certainly been a DT hater in the past, and I assumed when he retired it was probably so he can sit around the house and eat grapes lavishly all day, but if he's turned a new a leaf and is retiring to help kids achieve their goals there's certainly nothing to hate on about that.

All I can say is he played well for the Giants when given the chance on special teams.

Honest question: Did he ever take any to the house? I remember he had some decent hits, but I can't recall if he ever returned one for a touchdown for you guys.

Youch. Sounds like a freak injury...landed from a jump and tore both knees...I was expecting some gruesome blind hit that bent his knees the wrong way, but he just jumped and landed wrong.

If it's any consolation, he never returned one for a touchdown here either...
