Detroit will be going after him a lot.

This game showed a couple things. 1) You can run on our DL to a specific gap all night and 2) When in doubt, take a shot on Ambry on 3rd down.

This was his first game back in after 3 weeks of not playing and hand surgery. Hopefully he'll shape back into form.

Its either Ambry or Oliver out there so I think we give him at least one more game

I would say that this is an accurate statement. Ambry had me on edge every time we were on defense.

Don't be on edge, he's made huge plays for this team before last night. The calls just were on him and not ward last night.

The good teams expose your weaknesses:

1. Baltimore went after Thomas at will too.

2. I saw some big runs where the slot receivers were stopping, yes stopping C. Young in his tracks and getting around the corner. Man, the ends need to explode and bull rush through those receivers sending their asses flying and make them not want to try blocking again.
If the other team needs a 1st down, just throw it at #20!

It will either be a reception or a PI.
Get this man away from st brown.

Just has to work on tracking the football better.

isngetting closer to WR.

I completely forgot he had hand surgery.

We need a film breakdown of all the times Thomas has been thrown at this year. I'm curious if there is more good than bad.
He seems to be good against fly and fade routes, but bad against post routes

Exactly. Detroit would be wise to also target those two weaknesses.

I'm not afraid of Detroit so much but if we played KC in the SB you know Mahomes is going to exploit him. He's a huge liability getting to Josh Norman level.
