  • Devin Thomas Another Speed GEM on our WR corps

    If you rewatch the hail mary pass devin thomas runs so fast he out beats MM, Cruz and Nicks(though he made the catch) to the end zone. Blazing fast, is he still our gunner on ST's? If MM doesn't resign i think Cruz, Nicks, Devin Thomas may come cheaper and has big play. upside if targeted more by manning.

      Where did Devin Thomas come from? Did we pick him up from another team?

        He was drafted pretty high by the foreskins, destroyed us one game, got cut, played a game for Carolina, got cut, and we picked him up

          Devin Thomas was the early second round pick from Washington. He and first round bust Michael Clayton were both picked up last year when all the receivers were hurt.

            I think the hail mary was intended to go to nicks while cruz paces himself at a slower speed to keep his db Back enough not to interfere with nicks jump ball. They use thomas speed to get to the Back endzone to confuse the saftey.... But yeah.. Thomas was a burner with great size coming out of college

              Hmmm, I think Jernnigan may be the fastest of them all........but he's also the most slippery fingers of them all lol

                Unless Cruz,Nicks,or Manningham dont play you will not see Thomas making big plays. He had chances, granted he didnt have a great QB to throw to him but if we cut him tomorrow I wouldnt even notice. Now watch...He'll make some huge play for us this week...HaHa...your welcome fans...HaHa!!!

                  Hasn't JJ been much better since preseason? He's been handling a lot of the kick returns, I believe.

                    Our return game has sucked since Hixon tore his ACL last year. He came back and it was a little better, but since he got hurt, we've sucked at returning the ball, So much so that every time the ball is punted to us, I worry about the guy muffing it or fumbling it. That's where we are going to lose.

                      Just saying but if you watch the hail mary play Hakeem and Cruz were clearly not running full speed. Cruz was the underneath guy along with Mario to catch the tipped pass and Thomas was the deep guy. It was Thomas's job to get to the back of the end zone. Only Thomas and Mario had to sprint....Mario cutting all the way across the field.

                      Not that Thomas isn't fast cause he is but I was just clearing that up. I actually watched the break down of that play today and they explained the job assignments.

                      Here's the play and you'll notice Nicks and Cruz running half speed.

                        Yeah but I think he buckles under duress (example a punt return or pass up the middle) basically anytime he feels he might be hit as soon as he touches the ball. But don't get me wrong I think he'll be a pretty good receiver in the future.

                          don't forget about Ramses Barden! not a speed demon obviously given his size but I think he ran a 4.5 40..could be wrong. Lotta talent at the WR position..it's a good problem to have

                            Barden's name shoulda been left at the podium. Straight line speed means nothing if you don't even have the bare minimum quickness on a route to break from a 9 year old.

                            Who caught the Hail Mary? Size isn't the end all in the endzone. He won't see time, especially since he's not even a viable STer. At least Sinorice caught 3 TDs.
