The One That Got Away

From a football knowledge standpoint this film study with Joe Thomas is gold.

If you’re the least bit curious about offensive line play, a conversation with Thomas is like a personal Ted Talk.

From a Broncos fan perspective it makes one think of what might have been. When the potential trade was being discussed someone asked about Thomas’ experience and ability in a zone scheme. This answers that pretty well and explains the strong interest from the Broncos. In fact, Thomas specifically mentions Kubiak and Shanahan when discussing scheme.

From a Browns fan perspective, how maddened must it have been to see Thomas go on the block? How angry would we have been if McDaniels had tried to trade Clady or Bailey when the 2010 season started to go bad?
