Fred Thomas?!?! FRED THOMAS?!?!

Unreal. Ambrose is probably the worst starting corner in football.

Nope. Ambrose is outplaying Thomas right now. I\'m the biggest Thomas fan on this board, but he has done nothing but dissappoint me so far this season.

I think the only thing Ambrose has over Thomas is the interceptions. Of course, he wouldn\'t have had them if he had actually been covering his man. They were under-thrown which is EXACTLY where Ambrose happen to be, five steps BEHIND his receiver.

Thomas is playing way too timid, for my tastes. Which is quite a suprise, considering he looked great during the preseason.

Thomas is no speed demon for either. Look, I loved Ambrose back in the day, I\'ll admit it, but I can agree that he\'s hurting us. However, he\'s been way better against the run and in the flats than Thomas this year. Also, he has the size to jam WRs that Thomas does not. I was surprised when I heard that Thomas would be the one moved to the nickle, but with a bit smarter scheming, Ambrose\'s weakness against the long, mid-range and deep passes can be covered up. It is hard to scheme for Thomas\' lack of size, and, since I agree with BnB, his lack of agression so far this season.

Does anyone know when Craft might be back?
