Thomas expects to see more time on kickoffs

With running back Rock Cartwright forced into facing more action at running back in the Redskins' 7-6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, wide receiver Devin Thomas got an opportunity to return kickoffs and he averaged 28 yards on two returns.

Thomas showed his ability in the return game on a 38-yard return in which he made several tacklers miss, and the 2008 second-round draft pick said he is eager for the opportunity to continue in that role with Cartwright expected to start in the backfield Sunday at Philadelphia.


"Just because it's real natural and it's an easy way to get me the ball and use my speed and my size, a combination of the things I'm good at [and] try to make a big play," Thomas said. "I think I did a pretty good job and hopefully I get some more opportunities. I think with Rock getting more playing time at running back, it allows me to do that, takes [the] hits off of him."

In his junior season at Michigan State, Thomas returned 39 kicks for an average of 29.1 yards, ranking 11th in the nation. Asked what makes him a good returner, Thomas answered that he had a number of qualities that made for a strong option to take back kicks.

"I think just my ability to hit it hard, explosive, don't slow down, no fear, just hit it and try to hit that hole," Thomas said. "If it's there, I'm telling you I'm going to the house. I'm waiting to do it."

Devin Thomas is emerging as a terrific receiver. None of us liked last year but this year he's showing he can make catches and how tough a receiver after the catch he can be. Fred Davis and Malcolm Kelly are getting better too. At this point, we look good for the future at the receiver position with these 3 draft picks last year. But Devin Thomas, wow. If he can continue to improve, we're looking at a great receiver and maybe a return man.

I'm glad. They need his spot for players who are able to practice. Portis should be the next to go on IR. The skins need to keep raiding other teams OL practice squad players. Maybe they get lucky.

DT should have been running back kicks all year long, but oh well right...

read some posts last night, I think edvar said that we should do an injury settlement with Rhino, and I had to laugh, I mean if thats not a knee jerk/short-sighted reaction, I don't know what one is...

moe, Boston is offering Lowell to anyone who'd take him...and they're willing to kick in 6million of his salary as well....I'm not sure what theo and the trio have up their sleeves...

I think Rock will be pedestrian RB, but one thing I like about him is that he's effective on the screens - having worked so many kickoffs, you can see he's got good vision in the open field w/ a couple blockers.

I didn't realize the Devin Thomas is one of the most articulate guys on the squad. Sounds like he has a career in broadcasting lined up when his playing days are over. Of course, up here, most people thought his playing days would never begin.

Snyder says:

Tim was recently tested and found to have thetan levels on par of those of L. Ron Hubbard.

BTW, why did we wait this long to put DT11 on kickoffs? I mean we have been clamoring for this all year and the week after we finally give up they go ahead and do it. I mean I'd love for the team to be more proactive but right now I'll settle for slightly more reactive than Kieth Richards after raiding Ozzy's medicine cabinent. I can't wait until 2035 when the NFL outlaws rascal scooters and Randle El is forced to stop returning punts.

if they spend a 1st on a LT, and a 2nd on a RT, make Jones/Heyer the primary backups at LT/RT, use BMW, Rhino, Edwin Williams as the primary backups in the interior, that would be a good group?? I think if they do that, they'd see an exponential improvement in the line play, which then translats into improvement in the running game/passing game.......

We will have neither if we continue to show signs of improvement and/or win.

Cooley said his break is only partially healed and he was hoping that by the time this meeting happened he would be fully healed. However there is still an opening at the base of the break and by the time it gets healed, he could possibly make it back for the final two games. Which, he said would be pointless by that time.

Beantown

My reaction was neither "knee jerk" or "short sighted". If you read all of my posts you would have seen that I was advocating the team make the tough investment in time, draft picks and FA to build O LINE DOMINANCE over the next two years. Not serviceable, not good, not adequate. DOMINANT.

Rhino IMO will never be a dominant RG, and he's broken his leg. He does not have the mean streak nor does he have the athleticism to pull and lead around the edge. I don't see any point in keeping him around. I don't like the way mediocre linemen seem to accumulate on this team, so let's make a couple of decisions and clear some room for the new guard. I don't see the point in keeping Heyer around next year either, but I guess he should be allowed to compete for the back up spot, as that is all he will ever amount to.

Your other post also left out one glaring omission. Rabach is done as a starter as well. We should definitely be looking for a new center for next year - one that doesn't play 4 yards deep in our own backfield. The guy has Jason's cleat marks all over the back of his legs. I'd consider keeping him for another year as veteran back-up to help bring along the next center, if that is needed.

Just trying to look ahead and make the commitment to build a championship team.

P1funk.

I don't agree. Losing is never a good thing, and justifying it with draft position is short sighted and lazy thinking.

I have seen a significant change in our three 2nd rounders form 2008. Davis is growing exponentially, DT even more so, and Kelly looks to be getting in the swing of things (a bit more slowly). Orakpo is a solid candidate for rookie defensive player of the year.

Do you really want to poison the well and teach these guys that loosing is ok and sometimes good. That hangover can last a long time. Also, do you really want the Skins the confirm to the rest of the league that when the going gets tough, they are really just a bunch of girls who quit and play for draft picks?

I'd rather them learn how to win and carry that momentum into next year - no matter who is GM or coach. I'd rather the other teams fear as as relentless warriors who will battle to the last man rather than throw it in. You know...tradition, reputation, character - those things.

Gray finalist at Memphis By Ryan O'Halloran on Nov. 23, 2009 into Redskins 360

Not a lot of posts from me today (none actually) -- had the 5:15 a.m. wake-up call in Dallas, 2 1/2-hour flight and arrived at Redskin Park about 4 minutes after Jim Zorn's press conference started.

Here's the news of the day:

* The Memphis Commercial Appeal is reporting that Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray and LSU assistant head coach Larry Porter are finalists for the head coaching job.

Jim Zorn declined comment after the Dallas game when asked about Gray's potential opportunity and Gray himself initally declined comment but said, "We'll talk about that later."

That might be at the introductory press conference. One Redskins source "wasn't sure" if Gray had interviewed once or multiple times with the Tigers.

The Commerical Appeal also discovered the connection between Gray and Memphis. Redskins part owner Fred Smith, who also founded the Memphis-based FedEx, has a son, Cannon, who will compete for the starting quarterback job next year. Cannon Smith sat out this year after transferring from the University of Miami.

============================================

Very well said, p1funk. There is a difference being a true fan versus just a "Fan"atic. True fans will always root for a team but will allow flaws to occur and demand improvement or adjustments because that is what is expected for the price of loyalty. A true fan will always want a win, but understand that reality takes precedence over delusional optimism and luck. Daniel Snyder is running the Redskins as if he is playing the "Powerball" by buying high priced tickets every year instead of just grinding it out with a steady job and investing in 401K. Even if he "hits" all the numbers one day, the euphoria he gets will only last a few seconds. However, that one day may have odds of winning just like the "Powerball" (1 in 195,249,054). Good luck with that!

Posted by: JohnWWW | November 24, 2009 9:51 AM | Report abuse

He's started 3 games, and you've come to this conclusion?

Yup.

Have you seen ANYTHING in the last two years that indicates he could ever be a champion?

At the end of last season, when Samuels went down, remember how we put in the back up center because Rhino "didn't have the confidence to go in there"? What kind of crap is that? He should have been strapping on the helmet and running out there telling the other guy to get out of the way. Have you EVER heard of a team coddling a 300+ pound Guard?

And the fact that he has only started three games should tell you volumes given the competition. He's been in the battle of his life trying unsuccessfully to beat out guys that are the cast-offs of this league.

Again, it's about making a commitment to build DOMINANCE, not hanging on to mediocre performers for yet another year and hope maybe it will be better. Maybe he'll be a back up on another team, I'm setting the bar a bit higher than that.

Lets just say "fans" think/act/behave/root/act out elation/frustration in as many diverse ways as there are people.....

I mean some of the loudest posters on RI hardly watch any games!

Check this setup out my buddy and I concocted:

So we were sick of spending $60 a week at a loud sports bar to watch the Skins pee on themselves every week so we bought the cable to connect a macbook to a big screen TV, then we sweetalked another friends sister to give us her online Direct TV access code. So we had a clear, strong, legal stream into a big TV. Then we rigged my iPhone to act as a remote control letting us switch to Red Zone Channel and other games during breaks. We ate our own food, drank our own food and partook of herbal pleasures in the safety of home.

Set up to watch the game: Epic Succeed
The Game: Epic Fail.

Short-sighted and lazy???

First, my sole interest is in seeing Vinny fired. Period. I don't care if we have 0 draft picks at the end of the year as long as Vinny is gone.

What is short-sighted and lazy is saying that you don't want to go through the painful inconvenient and uncomfortable process of surgery to remove a malignant tumor that's killing you.

The primary problem with this team is the incompetence at the top level of management embodied in Snyder and Cerratto.

Getting rid of Snyder is futile wishful thinking. The next best thing is getting rid of Vinny. Continued losing is the best clearest way to ensure that Vinny will get axed.

I don't like it. I didn't ask for it. But I care enough about the Redskins to see the big picture and want to be proud to root for the franchise I grew up rooting for again. So I'm ready to bite the bullet.

What is short-sighted and lazy is hoping this team ends up 8-8. And in return for a couple of pointless victories, we will get Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerratto standing in front of media at season's end telling us how well the team rallied after a rough start, and how we are back on track, and that Vinny's contract has been extended and his duties expanded, and how we just extended Clinton Portis for another 5 years, and that we are putting the finishing touches on a trade for Chad Ochocinco who is the last piece of the puzzle to make us a real contender...

edvar, so you 'trust' this coaching staff to develop a player?? Really??

Like how we were fed the line that Fred Davis giggles, and doesn't know the playbook, until he was put into the game, and came away with 7 catches, which must have happened through osmosis, or something, because how can you not know the playbook/plays, but have that many catchs?? Or how they keep trotting Rock out there to return kicks despite DT being better at it and as JZ states, it gets him more focused on the game, or ARE out there to return punts despite him sucking at it, and going back a few years they kept Jansen in there when Heyer was a better choice, then coming forward, they used a 3rd round pick on Barnes, but somehow he can't get active despite Rogers STILL not being able to cover the double-move, and lets not forget they use a 3rd round pick on Jarmon, but the openly state THEY DON'T EXPECT MUCH OUT OF HIM THIS YEAR, why, what is the point of saying that??

Yeah, call me when this coaching staff gets changed over, and we'll see what we have, until then, everything is up in the air. You cannot come to ANY conclusion on these guys, until they have a 'real' nfl coach......there is just WAY, WAY too much stuff that indicates that JZ has NOT A CLUE in regard to player development.

And in return for a couple of pointless victories, we will get Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerratto standing in front of media at season's end telling us how well the team rallied after a rough start, and how we are back on track, and that Vinny's contract has been extended and his duties expanded, and how we just extended Clinton Portis for another 5 years, and that we are putting the finishing touches on a trade for Chad Ochocinco who is the last piece of the puzzle to make us a real contender...

Smart moves chris larry. Getting fat drunk and lifted in the comfort of your home is way better than dishing out cash at a bar to watch a team that you can pretty much predict the outcome.

I personally want the Skins to lose as many games as possible if that means Vinny and his r-tard selection of Zorn are gone. But I couldn't do so this past Sunday. I hate Romo and Wade Phillips as much or more. Anytime something good happens to the Cowboys and Phillips does his stupid fist pump and looks like he just crapped his pants I wonder how in the hell this guy was ever hired. He is a puppet just like Zorn.

"Would somebody please pass on this information to Daniel $nyder and Vinny Cerrato for me:
Jason Campbell - Rank 16 - QB Rating 86.1
Jay Cutler - Rank 24 - QB Rating 74.5
Mark Sanchez - Rank 31 - Qb Rating 61.1

MrMerkin

by that logic, the Skins' best off-season move would have been to dump Campbell and get Brett Farve [no less that 5th in ANY QB category this season]...so please try and serve that baloney somwhere else, eh?
