    Is that finesse enough for you?
    And he played when there were basically zero rules on hitting. If u were on the field, u better be ready to get hit by somebody or something!

    It's funny that's he's almost never mentioned in the "greatest QB of all-time" conversations". Neither by fans or media. But he was a bad, bad, man slinging that pigskin around

    MAYBE it will make his first step .10 of a second quicker, which will be murder on DBs.


    I'm glad we got DT nailed down. It can be frustrating to watch someone built like Tarzan play like Deion Branch. Here's hoping the -10 lbs gives him all of the confidence he needs.
    Haha who the heck is Deion branch lol

    I know Walsh'a 49ers were often accused of being finesse though they actually ran their version of West Coast offense and ran it very successfully with three Super Bowl wins in 81, 84, and 88.

    So far with Manning we've run his spread offense which lie WCO places a greater emphasis on passing but isn't accepted. In that time we've won out division three straight years (losing only one game) and have been to the Super Bowl once.

    In the Super Bowl Thomas played with an injured shoulder in a game that was essentially already lost, but he still played hard.

    It would seem that the idea of finesse might be misplaced.

    I like this statement. It is true, and not discussed often......finesse offensive style. Kudos.

    Demaryius Thomas Cuts His Weight Down

    Thomas is at 220 lbs rather than more along the 230 he's been playing at...I'm a fan, should make him even more explosive


    "Demaryius Thomas cut weight this offseason and is down to 222 pounds.
    Thomas' 2010 Combine weigh-in was 224, and he says he usually plays in the 228-229 range. "I'm fit," said Demaryius, who "held out" for all of OTAs and minicamp. "I think I'm a little faster. I think I'll play at a smaller weight this year, see how it goes." Not yet 28 years old, Thomas enters 2015 having finished as a top-five fantasy wideout in three consecutive seasons."

    Also impressed at the work ethic to not be going the other direction
Working...
