    Player GB zone blocking scheme and DT

    Given the fact that GB employs a ZB scheme, do you think this will be a hindrance or help to Daniel Thomas? I actually think it will help him.

    I don't think it'll matter one way or the other. All teams employ a mix of zone and man blocking.

    DT is a bust in my book already.2 round pick that we traded up for LMFAO. We could of had Ryan Mallet and a pass rusher last year. Injury prone, runs to high and he fumbles the ball. I'd try to trade him and get some value for him before the verdict is out!

    Didnt realize Daman379 was actually Tim Tebow... haha! But seriously I was impressed with DT at the beginning and feel he kind of slowed down in the end... Havent given up on him at all though...

    You need to keep in mind that he was injured for most of the year.

    Wow - to call a 2nd rd running back a bust after his rookie season with no training camp, a new offense with a joke of a HC and a below avg OL. Some people are a bit harsh! I was hoping for Mallet only because we need to get a young answer at QB but it's not like we heard anything out of NE to say he is the answer. This kid DT is a big tough RB and if healthy could be a great compliment to Bush. I think this team is fine at RB - they should draft another or bring in another young guy to be the #3 - i don't think Hilliard is any kind of answer at rb. This team needs to upgrade at WR for a WCO. We can't be running 4 wide sets and throwing out Bess and Hartline and who else? We need a serious upgrade there IMO.

    Ryan Mallet had a great year, he's a sure fire HOF!

    Daniel Thomas is a bust for what we did to get him, I honestly hated the pick.

    We are running a spread offense which requires more man blocking, why the hell would you zone block if your spreading the offense? Just hit the guy infront of you DUH!!!
