Thomas should be the opening day starter, and it will be his job to lose. I don't see the Bears having alot of success, so Peterson probably will get a shot before too long. I've read at one point Peterson had 30+ 100 yard rushing games, so he has a little consistency going for him.

I honestly think Thomas is too slow to be the Bears RB. He isn't going to be a guy you must stop first and succeed, which is what the game plan for the Bears will be with Krydell as the QB. A-Train would be better served on a team that had a passing threat. If you stack the line against A-Train, he is going nowhere.

I thought A-Train ran the ball well in the Bears final preseason game against a solid NE defense.

In my opinion, the Bears were probably hoping Thomas would work his tail off because of all the hype surrounding Peterson. I think it worked, and now we'll see a version more like his rookie season more so than his 2nd. The Bears also have one of the softer schedules in the league, so that should make Thomas a decent fill-in during bye weeks.

Also, Paul Edinger is emerging as one heck of a kicker. He'd make a great #2 and possibly could be worth starting.
