I think the fact that you have a Giants corner in Thomas saying some of these things substantiates it a bit.
Even then, I'd like to see his interview in its entirety rather than some fragmented quotes. It can even sound almost as if Thomas and Webster are trying to expedite his progress as a player beyond the field as if they know their time in NY could be limited. I don't know what more Thomas was asking as a player if he acknowledged that Prince had a great game against the pass and run unless he wants that to translate to others in order to be commendable. Again, so many directions you can run off with.
