For the record, I fully believe ST has underwhelmed so far this season. But, we said the exact same things about armstead for his first 4 years, then boom, his 5th year happens and he night be the 2nd best defender on the team.

What people are failing to realize (or simply refusing to type), is that AA was underwhelming on bad football teams. We had the ability to let him stay on the field, take his lumps and hope for improvement (which has happened). If Thomas isnt producing or playing at a level high enough to warrant him being on the field, then he shouldnt be. Our team is good now. We dont have the ability to just let underperforming players play a lot in hopes they will be better in the future.

I expect Thomas to make strides this year, but he simply isnt good enough to play extended snaps....which will stunt his development (unlike AA).
Agree with Jonnydel, that Solomon has underwhelmed, but like AA, i am still in his camp. If i could wait 5 yrs for Arik, i can wait another yr for Solomon. He is coming along, but it will still take more time. I plan to stick with him. When he comes around, it will make a lot of guys happy. I think he will. Just like Arik.

Ditto!!
They take him out when Peterson was gashing us on that first drive.
Thomas is already a huge asset to this team, he's an extremely hard worker an he provides much need depth for us . He is improving week by week, by seasons end he's gonna be a real player for us.
D.J Jones injury will be a blessing in disguise for Solly.
Taylor and Solly should be able to replace AA next year but man that's such a tough decision for us with the way AA is balling.

That was just standard personnel rotation with each series. It wasn't his gaps where Peterson was gashing anyhow.

Thomas had nothing to do with us getting gashed on that first drive. We got sloppy on some responsibilities. Those sloppy players were, in what I saw, DeFo, Kwon, Fred Warner and Tartt. Defor, Kwon and Warner's being the biggest runs given up on that drive.

Since you do extensive film breakdown, would you say that Thomas had something to do with the fact that the Rams stopped running on us after the first drive last week?

Just curious, because Thomas got a ton of credit in this thread for that last week. And on the surface, it appeared that it was the exact opposite this week. So based on your film review, was Thomas the difference against the Rams? Or was it more of what you just said about the Redskins game, just with different players attached to the review?

yes and no. Most of it was scheme vs the rams. In this game we started out doing what we did to stop the Rams running game after their first drive the previous week. Almost like we were expecting the Skins to do the same thing LA did on their first drive but the Skins didn't and it bit us a few times.

Solly played well, i thought. On one play him and Bosa absolutely handled the point of attack and AA got a tackle for loss.

To me, he's put together 2 very solid weeks. He's played better at the 1 tech than I thought he would considering he's not the biggest guy but was taking on double teams like a champ.

Thank you for the response. I want Solomon Thomas to take the leap and prove why we drafted him where we drafted him. Unfortunately, in this thread it seems to have become a constant battle with his homer fans giving him credit for everything (warranted or not), and the lets dump Thomas fans giving him credit for nothing (warranted or not).....which is why I wanted you to explain what I asked you to. Thanks.

If AA is resigned, I wouldn't be surprised to see Solly moves in the offseason

That play where he got a personal foul called for hitting Keenum in the helmet, he owned Scherff on that rep.
