We have a great team win and some cats shoot to the board to talk about Reggie's rushing game and how Freddie Thomas got burned. ENJOY THE WIN and discuss the negatives during the week!

We're 6-2! Who DAT!!

Freddy Thomas gets burned every week. Not like people are just looking at todays game and thinking of stuff to complain about.

I think they need to go back to the game plan with Reggie from the first half of the year. Toss him the ball on swing passes, run a few trick plays or what ever you callthem with him. Get him in space remember that was the key. Stop running him as a RB. Let him play Wr some of the game. Go back to being the decoy.

I'm with FragMaster, let's enjoy the win. We have all week to gripe about the negatives. We just crushed Tampa Bay, all I see right now are positives.

Exactly. We KNOW Freddie gets burned occassional. When you play Cover 0 and Cover 1, you take that high risk/high reward, period. Bottom line is won big, showed a lot of heart, and we're 6-2. No need to bring negativity to the win.

Agreed, my friend.

Let's just enjoy this great day. So many of the games today went our way, and this one was sweet. A Divisional win, an NFC win, and a return to 1st place in the division.

Yes, I'll enjoy this day to the max (already have, LOL!!)

Ah, life is good.

I know Freddy Thomas and Bush havn't been playing that well but the way I see it is they can't play any worse and we're still 6-2. They can only get better which means we can get even better and that's scary.

A win is nice but I think most people want to make the playoffs and the issues with Reggie and Freddie will come up again in the future.

Well, if you want to be frank, there were barely any lanes in the last two games. It's not like Deuce set the world on fire the last two games either.

Absolutely. And it's not like there's a lot to talk about anyway. Freddie is what he is, and Reggie is a rookie who's helping us anyway.

Reggie's not 100% with his ankle

I'm still completely convinced that he will explode any day now. It'll happen as soon as defenses stop focusing their attention on him (because of colston and because his production isn't there). as soon as that happens.. look out.

Freddy Thomas gets burned every week. Not like people are just looking at todays game and thinking of stuff to complain about.

Hopefully Freddy Thomas doesn't have another 10 tackles this game like hes been doing. Tired of hearing about how great a tackler he is when he wouldn't even have to make those tackles if he could stop anyone from catching the ball.
I don't get the pass for Fred Thomas. How does Mckenzie shutting down his side of the field "overwhelm" Fred? Teams pick on Thomas all game every game.

He needs to go right after Craft. Then we need to sign Clement. Fred Thomas had 10 passes completed on him last week....guess how much he gets paid? 5 million a year....Mckenzie had 2 passes completed on him....guess how much he gets paid? 5.6 million a year.

Whos really overpaid and overrated?
Huh? Hes practically shut his side down all year. Sunday a grand total of 2 passes were completed on his side of the field. Thats about his average the whole year.

He gives up 3 long passes (while being on the guy like white on rice I might add...he has not been "burnt" all year.) and suddenly he can't defend the pass?

Meanwhile Freddy "15 tackles a game because i give up that many passes" Thomas gets a pass.
I pray every night that we can land Clement at the end of the year. Hes the missing piece in that secondary. Then we could move Thomas to the Nickel where he belongs.
This is a prime example of exaggerating, a ton. McKenzie is clearly the better corner and consistently shuts his side of the field while teams throw all over fred thomas. Fred can do one thing....tackle. But what good is 12 tackles a game when all 12 are after a guy has caught a pass for a FD.

Mckenzie has gotten beat deep 3 times this year. 3 times. Chris McAlister got beat deep 3 times in 1 game this past weekend. Those 3 times Mike was all over the reciever and it was a perfect pass. I'd also gurantee you can count his PI penalties called against him on one hand.

But yet people like to say hes garbage and always gets beat deep? Its just plain not true. Fred Thomas is the weak link in that secondary. Craft is not even a link...he just needs to be gone.

Is he overpaid...probably, but that doesn't change the fact that he is our best corner. What he gets paid really isn't that important to me. I'm not the one writing the checks. If hes out there doing his job i'm fine with it. BTW you won't get clement for the amount MM is getting paid. That guy is gonna want alot more. I want to have both of them.
Thank you. Finally someone with some facts. I was wondering how much FT made.

Can't belive hes getting that much to be a bad #2 corner.
Whoever here says MM gets burnt more the Freddie must not watch many games.

Whats your definition of burnt? 50 yards? Freddie was killed in the carolina game over and over and over. Hes been killed in all but 2 games this season. Meanwhile they don't even throw to MM's side of the field but he gives up one play a game and all the sudden hes terrible?

To much snap judgement and not enough actual watching of the film.
Theres Fred Thomas getting burnt again..Of course the only person we bash on this board is Mckenzie who is once again shutting down his side of the field.
Fred Thomas burnt again...Overpaid and he isn't any good.
I've been sayign it all week. Its been a nonstop bash fest of Mckenzie while people give Thomas a pass because he "can tackle". Last time I checked Mike has 3 tackles on RB's this game to stop them for no yardage and hes shut down his side of the field (something he does every week).

Teams do nothing but pick on Thomas all game.
Great Job Thomas...
This was sarcasm after Galloway's 2nd TD when Thomas was not even covering him.

I noticed that after seeing the replay. It was his side of the field and a deep pass....not exactly a stupid mistake to think it was him.

Why would Fujita be covering him anyway. Someone had to of blown some kind of assignment.

Doesn't change the fact that Thomas has been terrible this game. He just happened to not give up that play.
So, how do you feel about Fred Thomas?
