Thomas needs to make one major change in his outlook on offensive football - he needs to realize that the game is played with a football, not a loaf of bread.
That said, I am his biggest fan.
Well Ole Tracy must have gotten the message.....since he did well at Southern and the Canadian league.Sorry remember Tracy but not Raymond.Raymond Gross was the same way at Georgia Southern. Won two national titles, played for a third. Best option QB, in terms of reading and executing it, this side of Jamelle Holieway at Oklahoma. And they used to say in the huddle with Tracy Ham, in fact, the first words said before every play were, "Tracy, don't drop the ball!"
There is little doubt that the offense should do better with Thomas because of his instincts for this type of football. There should not be as much hesitation in the QB's decisions. However, this does not guarantee we will be better unless we fix other problems. It was apparent to me that there was division on the team because of the QB situation. There may have been other situations that caused unrest on the team. These items must also be cleared up or we will see the same inept play we saw at times this past year.
With the rumors of some players looking to transfer because of the lack of playing time, either the coaches must resolve this issue or the unhappy players should leave. Divisions in the team will not produce a winning season.
The teams we play do not look to be an overwhelming obstacles to a good season. All the obstacles appear to be homemade. I am ready for the Spring Practice to see if the coaching staff and team comes together with the right attitude. Days seems to have a great attitude, but it will take the entire team with this attitude.
I remember the same things being said about Vad by other players on the team.
At this point being a GT fan, I'm taking wait and see approach.
Those things about Vad were true! The guy was and is a talented athlete. Just didn't work out.
Agree about "wait and see" but nothing wrong with getting excited about JT. Just look at FSU after EJ Manuel went to the NFL and some freshman named Jameis took over. Anything can happen.
