Golden Nuggets: This is going to be Solomon Thomas’ year

I know, we have said the same about guys like Quinton Patton, Vance McDonald, Corey Lemonier and even Quinton Dial and look where he is now. By the way, where is Quinton Dial? Is he still even in the NFL? There was a whole team of guys we said that same thing about. On the other hand, weren’t we saying “this is Jimmy Ward’s year” before last season began and look how that worked out.

I really think Thomas is going to follow in Ward’s footsteps and this is going to be “his year”. Ok, I can’t even say that with a straight face. I didn’t think we should have drafted him in the first place and then I stuck up for the guy for the first two years thinking Mr John Lynch knew what he was doing when he drafted Thomas. What a disappointment that turned out to be. Perhaps he can step in and do a nice job as a three tech this year. Unfortunately his first three years have only led me to expect more disappointment. I sincerely hope he does not suck too much. Perhaps my Golden Nuggets during the season will include a weekly “how much does Solomon Thomas suck” meter.

You know what would really be amazing? If Lynch admitted that he made a mistake by drafting Thomas. That would be even more surprising than if this really was “Thomas’ year”.
