I think this is good.
Here's the thing about Decker and Thomas. I was high on Thomas leading up to the pre-season. And then I realized something and remembered something else. I realized that Peyton Manning is a tactician. 1,2,3 ball comes out. He expects guys to be in a certain place at a certain time. Decker is a very good, precise route runner. Thomas is not. Last year when the Broncos used a real quarterback (Orton), Decker caught half his passes, TDs, and nearly half his yards in 4 games. Then when They switched to Tebow, he only caught another 22 and 4 TDs the remaining 12 games. Tebow A. Can't throw B. Has trouble reading a defense C. Used alot of PA passes off of the option offense Fox installed for him (which is more suited to a defense stretcher like Thomas).
Now I believe Thomas was out the first 4 games last year. I'll grant that but I think we've already seen that Manning favors Decker. I think Thomas will have some big games but Decker will be more consistent and definitely catch more passes.
