    What does everyone thing about the Anthony "A Train" Thomas being added to our backfield? He might be a good fit as a backup power back here and come fairly cheap. Read somewhere we might be interested in him. What does everyone think?

    FWIW--Anthony Thomas on 3rd and less than 3 has averaged 2.0 ypc over his career. Domanick Davis has averaged 6.9 ypc (last year was 5.7 ypc).

    I'm really hoping we draft Shelton. Oustide of his rookie season, I think Anthony Thomas has looked like a bad NFL Rb.

    Don't forget though, he did play in Chicago who last season had no real QB and no real threat at WR and a horrible O line...I would be curious to see how he'd do in the warm weather behind our O line... :hmmm:
