And what exactly did you expect from an UDFA that we acquired from The Dallas Cowboys' practice squad? What, a Ken Lucas? Give me a break you whiny, keyboard warrior. The last person you should compare yourself to is a professional athlete. If you can't do it, then don't compare yourself to the top percentile by referencing your 'glory' days during high school flag football. Plain and simple.

The fact is Josh Thomas gave up a big play which ultimately led to a loss and yet he is a serviceable DB, and nothing more. Don't be delusional. Considering the depth at WR for The Seahawks and how badly Wilson made top-tier defenses (ex. San Francisco) look, Thomas did an adequate job for the caliber of DB he is overall. Fans love to b#%$@ but it could have been soooooo much worse. Perhaps you would have preferred a 55 point blowout? The margin for error was excruciatingly small (thanks to the lack of production from the offensive side of the ball), and it came down to a 42 yard circus play.

Get over it, and move on.


I feel that you have misunderstood me in your efforts to emasculate me.

Take a pill put some ice on it and wait for the swelling to subside.

Thomas is who he is and that's ok. I'm not gonna make excuses for him allowing the plays he allowed. And you getting so twisted about it is absurd. Thomas will have to do until we get something better.

Now to steal a line from you..

Get over it and move on.

Thomas had a good game outside that catch. Seattle ran the same play back to back with 2 different receivers becuz they saw something to exploit gotta give the CB some help on that.

I'm not here to emasculate anyone but I despise when fans start diving into hyperbolic statements.

 

Did Josh Thomas play below average? Yep. I do not deny this. However, did he gave up three scores and 150+ yards, and singlehandedly cost us the game? Hell no. In addition, our secondary gave up a league worst 66% completion rate last year because of the scheme McDermott runs. Was it any different on Sunday?

 

I'll take Thomas' two big plays and 12 points over Witner's four big plays and 40+ point loss any day.

Fine. You have your opinion about the situation and I have mine. They just so happen to differ ever so slightly. You like Thomas and his play, I like Thomas but am not crazy about his play. This is our collective situation to deal with. Ill still be wearing my jersey Sunday as I'm sure you will be too. Lets just agree to disagree while agreeing that we have to win this week.

The way I look a it where just that #1 CB away from having a very solid group of talented young CB'S. Easier said then done to find that #1 CB, but feel Norman, Thomas , & Dockery can all be solid # 2,3s & 4s. Their young & should keep improving not cost much & form a good chemistry. For the future.

How can RR worry about the run with a front 7 like ours? He needs to worry about the pass with a secondary like ours.


A good run D can mask that area. If we can stop the run and score points on offense I think we will win games, but we have to convert our opportunities on offense
