My grandfather, rest in peace, told me about Thomas and had me watch a game or two. He definitely isn't as crisp as Cam, but he fits that mold of a huge, mobile launching pad for the football that teams are beginning to covet.

I'm very interested to see how his career progresses.

Football is a nasty business, you don't win games with choir boys.

And you don't win games with thugs either. I have found that character and work ethic and dedication and buying into the team concept are related attributes of winners. I would even go on to say that championships are won by teams with high character, even if a few thugs enjoy the ride. What do Michael Vick, Ryan Leaf, and Art Schleister have in common? All NFL QBs, all have/had talent, all have multiple convictions that required incarceration, and none have a championship ring.
