It's that simple. Thomas had to learn how to play WR when he entered the pros. What don't you ****ing understand about this? I'm not saying he can't play WR. I'm saying he had a very steep learning curve as a rookie. With very little experience thanks to the lockout, 5-game injury, and crap for coach/QB, Baldwin's routes are STILL probably better than Thomas'.
I'm not saying he'll be a better receiver this year. I'm still talking about just route running. That's it. If Thomas does put out better numbers than Baldwin, it will be by the grace of Peyton Christ himself.
You and vailpass should hang out. Your inabilities to detect subtleties when discussing football could help form a deep bond between you two.
Your inability to detect when you are being ****ed with and having your subsequent melt downs laughed at make you subtly special.
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
