here and there, i read that harbaugh has solid interest in thomas. how can this be? his skills are horrible. he makes it hard on his receivers practically every play; just plain bad ball placement. if he wasn't tall, strong and powerful, he'd be a nobody. there's no chance that this guy wins nfl games. individual nfl plays are precious, you have to have the ability to place the ball where it can move the chains. thomas does not have the innate feel for putting together plays and finishing drives. not anything near a nfl qb prospect with a decent chance for success.
i know some will say he can be coached up, but i disagree. the stuff i see shows an absence of basic nfl playmaking from the perspective of arm talent. there's a chasm between him and winning nfl accuracy. harbaugh can't fix that; thomas is missing innate talent. not even worth developmental udfa status.
if you know harbaugh and have optimism about the thomas/harbaugh thing, please explain how the basic problems of thomas' play can be overcome. it will take quite an argument.
