Chiefs will have 2 WRs better than Thomas.

Jesus. What a stupid ****ing question.
I don't know what the hell was wrong with him. He had a shitty coach and shitty QBs who wouldn't know a football from a sickly-looking watermelon. In addition to all of that, he had practically zero offseason time to get acclimated to the playbook, practically zero time to get acclimated to the team, but also practically zero time to get acclimated to the NFL. And what little preparation time he had before the regular season was cut short by Thomas Jones.
I DO know what kind of offense he ran at Pitt. I saw him play last year, and I'm hearing about what he's doing this offseason. I've also seen Demaryius Thomas gimp around the field trying to re-learn how to play WR over the course of 3 seasons. Maybe he's caught on by now. Good for him if he has. All I know is that Baldwin had a HUGE leg up over Thomas when he first entered the league, and the results of that head start will very likely be seen this next season.
Neither of these came anywhere close to answering my question. I'm not saying he sucks because he didn't produce, I'm saying that in the 2 Chiefs games I watched, he made 4 catches, so I didn't see much of him.
Obviously he must be great at route running, if someone has to be an idiot to think he isn't superior to Thomas. I just wondered what evidence you had of this. Maybe something other than "I saw it."
Also, I'm not sure what you're talking about "trying to re-learn how to play WR." He played quite well considering his inexperience and the offense he was in, I thought.
