Demaryius Thomas is looking forward to the opportunity to catch passes from Peyton Manning.




He knows he has been granted the biggest gift of his football life. He must cash in on playing with Peyton Manning.

“Every time I make a mistake, I get mad at myself because I know Peyton is counting on me,” Thomas said. “I have to be good. Peyton picked the Broncos, and I have to make him know he made the right choice.”

Thomas shouldn’t be so hard on himself. The allure of playing with Thomas is one of the reasons Manning chose Denver. Manning has often referred to Thomas as having special talent and said he expected Thomas to have a big impact.

Manning has a strong history of bringing along young receivers and expediting their learning curves. Thomas will be given the chance to fast-track his career.

Thomas does offer Manning a variation he has never worked with -- he’s a huge receiver. At 6-foot-3, 236 pounds, Thomas offers mismatch possibilities that the masterful Manning should be able to exploit.

“Peyton tells me all the time he’s never worked with someone like me,” Thomas said. “I’ve watched a lot of film from his Colts' days to get some pointers. There really weren’t any of his receivers who were like me. ... I know Peyton is looking forward to it.”

BroncoRob isn't the smartest guy in the world (for littering this forum with BurgerBill cut ant paste jobs). I think he meant something like "Thomas expects work ethic to pay dividends"

Kind of an awkward subject-verb agreement there.

Demaryius Thomas is the corporation that employs his work ethic.

Well, if you are a corporation, and you are paying dividends, that likely means you are making a good profit, and have extra cash to give to your stakeholders.

To complete the analogy, if Demaryius (the corporation) is paying dividends, then he must be successful (profitable) enough that he provides his teammates, front office, and fans (stakeholders) with satisfaction and enjoyment (cash).

The dividends paid will be to Broncos fans, who have waited over a decade for Denver to be back to a championship level (aside from the 2005 team that stumbled, against the Steelers)...

NFL on Sirius radio just talked about the Broncos for about 1/2 hour. They raved about DT. Said they expect him and Manning to be almost unstoppable. Said DT being on the field would make every other receiver better. They also raved about Decker. The way they talked I now expect to win the SB. ;D

Don't know if the archive their shows but if they do this one is worth a listen. If someone does find it please post it.

There is some concern, with DT's route running. It has never been his strong suite and Manning demands precise routes. If DT can excell in this area he will have 1,500 yard receiving this year.

EXT. STREET- EVENING

The financial district. The streets are eerily deserted.

Bateman stands at an ATM, enjoying the reassuring sound of
$500 in fresh bills thudding from the machine. As he turns
to leave, he notices someone across the street.

A HOMELESS MAN is lying in a doorway on top of an open
grate, surrounded by bags of garbage and a shopping cart. A
cardboard sign is attached to the front of the cart: I AM
HOMELESS AND HUNGRY PLEASE HELP ME. A small, thin dog lies
next to him.

He is black, dressed in a stained, torn, lime-green
polyester pants suit with jeans worn over the pants.

BATEMAN
(Offering his hand) Hello. Pat Bateman.

The Homeless Man stares at Bateman, struggling to sit up.

BATEMAN
You want some money?. Some...food?

The Homeless Man nods and starts to cry. Bateman reaches
into his pocket and pulls out a $I 0 bill, then changes his
mind and holds out a $5 instead.

BATEMAN
Is this what you need?

The Homeless Man nods, looks away, wipes his nose.

HOMELESS MAN
I'm so hungry.

BATEMAN
It's cold out, too, isn't it?

HOMELESS MAN
I'm so hungry.

BATEMAN
(Holding the bill just out of the man's reach)
Why don't you get a job? If you're so hungry, why don't you
get a job?

HOMELESS MAN
(Shivering and sobbing)
I lost my job...

BATEMAN
Why? Were you drinking? Is that why you lost it?
Insider trading...(brutal but I lulzed out loud)? Just joking. No, really-were you drinking on
the job?

HOMELESS MAN I was fired. I was laid off.

BATEMAN
Gee, uh, that's too bad.

HOMELESS MAN
I'm so hungry.The dog starts to whimper.BATEMAN
Why don't you get another one? Why don't , you get another job?

HOMELESS MAN
I'm not...

BATEMAN
You're not what? Qualified for anything else?

HOMELESS MAN
I'm hungry

BATEMAN
I know that, I know that. Jeez, you're like a broken record.
I'm trying to help you.

HOMELESS MAN
I'm hungry.

BATEMAN
Listen, do you think it's fair to take money from people who
do have jobs? From people who do work?

HOMELESS MAN
What am I gonna do?

BATEMAN
Listen, what's your name?

HOMELESS MAN
Al.

BATEMAN
Speak up. Come on.

HOMELESS MAN
Al.

BATEMAN
Get a goddamn job, Al. You've got a negative attitude.
That's what's stopping you. You've got to get your act together.
I'll help you.

...just clarifying the difference between paying dividends and receiving dividends.

He just better eat his wheaties every morning cause you can't produce sitting on the sidelines hurt.

While I agree he needs to stay healthy, there have been several guys who started their careers with reputations of being injury-prone....Fred Taylor use to be called "Fragile Freddie" in his early days in Jax, especially after missing 23 of 48 games between '99-'02....and he had a pretty decent career rushing for damn near 12,000 yards. Terrell Davis was considered an injury risk coming outta UGa...and he turned out ok...

Thomas is young enough to recover from his early mishaps and produce like a big time player.

And EVEN if he was injured or his QB's were not Manning IMO it comes with the pay check to know your job and work at it.. learning the route tree does not mean he has to be on the field running them all the time.. Loads of this game is mental and if the mental prep has not been done, trying to run the tree well is not gonna happen.. just maybe the QB's had little faith in him and that was the reason they did not make him the Numero Uno guy.. I know that Manning will not waste time on him if he does not have it down stone cold .. he will look at him last after all the other options.. Someone on NFLN mentioned regardless the commentary should not have been even brought up.. I agree, perhaps he has no common sense.. Or worse..

Reggie Wayne was no slouch... Marvin Harrison also managed to catch a few balls. I hope you are right about him breaking records but I am going to set my expectations a little lower. 80 catches, 1,200 yds and 9 TD's. He does that and I am happy.

Someone on NFLN mentioned regardless the commentary should not have been even brought up.. I agree, perhaps he has no common sense.. Or worse..

in all fairness to DT and his overall game; he has been injured quite a bit since he was drafted. coming out of college he had the foot injury and wasn't a big participant in camp and once the regular season started injuries crept up again and Orton was all about finding Brandon Lloyd. so not a great year to learn his craft. add in, most receivers don't hit the ground running coming out of college.

year 2 he was coming off a torn achilles and missed camp and the first 6 games of the season. he also had 2 years of seeing Tebow missing on throws and throwing into the dirt. now coming back from injury is tough, a guy may be healed but he may not have complete confidence in the newly healed limb. this is evident in that he wasn't a big factor for the 1st 6 weeks he was back on the field by a lack of production.

now in his defense about the route running, yes it was dumb to admit to, but really i don't think route running was being heavily emphasized in the offense last season. i'd wager that coaches were telling the receivers "run the route, but if the ball isn't out after 3 seconds start blocking" now if you are a young receiver, chances are your going to see your QB throwing on average 10 passes a game maybe 4 of which are catchable; how much effort is realistically going to be put into proper route running?

under the circumstances of the QB position the last 2 seasons it is too soon to label DT a bad player or route runner or Decker as a guy incapable of getting separation or both of them as players who drop a lot of balls. if that continues this season with a full TC and preseason worth of work with a great passer then we can start to worry and call out these guys.

in all fairness to DT and his overall game; he has been injured quite a bit since he was drafted. coming out of college he had the foot injury and wasn't a big participant in camp and once the regular season started injuries crept up again and Orton was all about finding Brandon Lloyd. so not a great year to learn his craft. add in, most receivers don't hit the ground running coming out of college.

year 2 he was coming off a torn achilles and missed camp and the first 6 games of the season. he also had 2 years of seeing Tebow missing on throws and throwing into the dirt. now coming back from injury is tough, a guy may be healed but he may not have complete confidence in the newly healed limb. this is evident in that he wasn't a big factor for the 1st 6 weeks he was back on the field by a lack of production.

now in his defense about the route running, yes it was dumb to admit to, but really i don't think route running was being heavily emphasized in the offense last season. i'd wager that coaches were telling the receivers "run the route, but if the ball isn't out after 3 seconds start blocking" now if you are a young receiver, chances are your going to see your QB throwing on average 10 passes a game maybe 4 of which are catchable; how much effort is realistically going to be put into proper route running?

Good well thought out post..

:thumbs:

But that said.. playing football is not just physical lots of it is mental and he has had loads of mental time since being drafted and frankly before while in college to plan for the future..

Who knows had he put more mental time in just maybe he would have not been there for Josh to pick up..

I do realize that the game is physical and the only time you get those reps are a few in practice and then in games..With him being injured he lost some of that..

But again, saying I have to learn the route tree now that Manning is here can not be making Peyton a happy camper either..

Maybe they need to have part of the rookie symposium an "It is better to be thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt" Class..

from what everyone says he is a personable guy and supposedly smart, but so far the jury is still out on him IMO.

Most of us thought the same thing about BM and look how many things that thug has been traded because he is a locker room cancer and WAS a wife beater..

The WR corp could be very good this year or Manning is in deep do-do..

i think the Marshall comparisons are lacking beyond the physical standpoint. for all intents and purposes DT is a great teammate and a good locker room guy. aside from a questionable choice in friends as a pro he hasn't been a distraction or a bad person in the city. with Marshall we all saw that he was a fun guy, but could also be an absolute turd, and his stupidity only mounted after everything with DWill(RIP)

granted it has only been a little over a year since his brush with trouble that was mainly Cox's fault and he was just a bystander, but he has kept himself out of trouble and out of the spotlight. Marshall couldn't do that.

now i don't know about DT's intelligence or lack thereof but i don't think his recent comments about having to be in shape or route running were the result of stupidity. lack of judgment and proper clarification is more how i interpret his comments.

to me, his saying i need to be in shape to run this offense, was him saying poorly, i need to get back to doing the things i need to, to be an NFL receiver, when over last season he was a downfield blocker more than a receiver and because of that he wasn't necessarily doing all the little things to be a receiving weapon.

his route running comment wasn't saying "i don't know what the routes are" it was saying, "i now have a QB that can make all the throws and i need to be capable of running all possible routes on the route tree, not just the few that Orton or Tebow were capable of throwing"

BM was thought of highly from most that knew him, writers, players and some adoring fans..

now DT did not have that becasue he came in hurt and seemed to not get on the field.. so few fans thought much of him and on top of all that he was Joshes boy, mistake or what ever..

From what I have been told he is a top ten in the wonderlick in his draft class.. SO perhaps it is not smarts but common sense..

Broncos: Rod Smith's advice helped send Demaryius Thomas on a roll


Rod Smith goes into the Broncos' Ring of Fame on Sunday for his accomplishments from 1994-2008, in which he became the Broncos' all-time leader in receptions, receiving yardage and touchdowns.

But his contributions didn't end there, as it turned out. After his old quarterback, John Elway, returned to the team as an executive vice president in January 2011, Smith was invited back to speak with the current Broncos and be an unofficial consultant.

During one of his visits to Broncos headquarters last November, he walked into the wide receivers' room to see a downcast group. The Broncos were winning -- they had won four games in succession with Tim Tebow at the controls -- but the run-centric offense had left the receivers with little to do but block.

"They were frustrated. They were hurt. They were catching two balls thrown to them a game, and they were frustrated," Smith recalled.

In the previous four games, when the Broncos went full-tilt into the zone-read option, Demaryius Thomas had caught just three passes for 66 yards, and Eric Decker had just seven catches for 146 yards. Three of Decker's receptions had gone for touchdowns.

But the Broncos were winning, so they put on a positive face for the public -- a guard the receivers let down when Smith walked into the room.

Smith, who broke into the league as an undrafted free agent on the Broncos' practice squad in 1994 and became the most prolific undrafted receiver in league history, wasn't going to stand for that.

"I said, 'Guys, that part, you don't control,'" Smith recalled. "'You control how you come out of the huddle, how you run your route. You control that. You control blocking in the run game.

"'I know it sucks. It sucks to be a receiver and not know if you're going to get the ball, ever. You never know. But what makes you a champion is when you go out there thinking it's coming to you anyway and you go out there and go to work."

The speech appeared to have a profound impact on Thomas, who has exploded in the nine games since then, averaging 5.3 receptions, 103.7 yards and 0.75 touchdowns per game. His per-game averages before them were 1.8 receptions, 17.9 yards and 0.19 touchdowns per game.

"Whether it helped out, I don't know, but his approach seemed different from that day forward," Smith said.

Thomas has a wonderful gift as a wide reciever, he is extremely humble and driven. I am not sure how he emerged from the car wreck that was his family situation as a child but it formed him into a guy who will not be satisfied with complete domination. The game tonight showed that he can not be covered 1 on 1, he is simply too big, too strong and too fast. He will find a way to beat you and all you have to do is get the ball to him.

I am not sure how he emerged from the car wreck that was his family situation as a child but it formed him into a guy who will not be satisfied with complete domination. The game tonight showed that he can not be covered 1 on 1, he is simply too big, too strong and too fast. He will find a way to beat you and all you have to do is get the ball to him.

I just how he mentally agile enough to play full on Manning ball.

So glad we passed on Dez for Demaryius, as much as I hate McD he made a good choice taking him over Dez.

Hes a humble church mouse compared to Dez in terms of personality too.

Wow has DT grown in the 7 games this year. He is getting to be dominant and he has so much more room to grow. Collingsworth made a point towards the middle of the third quarter about seeing DT run some great routes and giving Manning signals about when he is going to come out of his breaks. Showed a great replay of him chopping his feet and swinging his arms just before making his break, and bam the ball was there. He said Manning had been working on that with him.

Having Manning is so awesome.

I guess we can thank mikey for making promises of a big contract for the following spring and his resentment with Josh for not giving it to him..

DT is making the strides one step at a time. I said this earlier this year when I was highly critical of his play. He was not doing the little things right and now he is doing way better at that. He is still not there, but his performances are getting better every game and his blocking is solid as hell too. Guy is going to be a complete WR and an elite target as well if he keeps this up.

Decker has also been money playing with Manning. Let's not forget that as well. Overall, the WR corp is getting better and more comfortable with the scheme, the no huddle, and the timing with Manning. Add in a real running game, one capable of taking over a game and making PA a real threat, and this offense is going to remain as lethal as it was last night.

Nothing like giving the defense the lead for once and watching what they can do going the other way. Just look at OAK and NO games when DEN got the lead early and stood on the gas. They simply put away teams on both sides of the ball. Going to be very good down the stretch with this formula.

as much as DT talks about Manning taking him to school like he was in kindergarten i would hope that they have great chemistry brewing. ROFL!
it's really good to see the maturation of the WR's and improvement from them this year.

One thing we haven't talked nearly enough about is how well Thomas is blocking. He's thrown some really nice blocks that have sprung guys for double digit yards just in the last two games alone. He's not a lock you up kind of guy yet, but he has that physical knock-you-out shoulder thing going on.

if the kid can keep his head out of his ass and not become a prototypical WR with a huge HEAD case. then he is progressing really well..

I did not think he would be running such sharp routes yet thought with the total lack of experience in college and frankly his first tow years in the NFL, it would take another year to be on Manning wave length..

I agree, he's thrown some huge blocks on several plays that I've seen. I think Decker is probably a better route runner but DT has better hands and is obviously a beast physically.

"Peyton Manning lofted a pass down the left side of the Denver Broncos practice field Sunday and barely had to watch it as landed in Demaryius Thomas' hands.

Thomas had split two defensive backs and, though a whistle blew, didn't slow, sprinting 30 more yards to the end zone. As he turned around to make his way back to the huddle, he turned to a group of observers and smiled.

"They didn't make that tackle," Thomas said.

It was the type of play that Thomas made over and over in private workouts this spring with an elite group of NFL wide receivers, including Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green.

"I want to be one of those guys that isn't forgotten once I'm done. That's my main thing," Thomas told USA TODAY Sports...

That screen cap is a perfect picture of what makes Demaryius and Peyton so dangerous:

1. The throw comes approximately 2 seconds after the snap and Bailey has press coverage.
2. Champ lets Demaryius take the sideline so it can let him work inside-out.
3. High-pointing a ball is PARAMOUNT to a secondary, but because of Demaryius' size, Bailey has to "choke-up" on the coverage when he sees the throw and try to high point the ball a little early.
4. The end result is being hilariously out of position and a walk-in TD for Demaryius.

huh??

DT stayed after practice to get in additional catches in. Practiced some "stretch and reach" stuff. :thumbsup:

That is one aspect of why Thomas and Manning work so well, the other is of course Thomas' size and power with the ball. Manning knows all he has to do is get Thomas the ball with space to move and it could be going for 6 regardless where on the field the catch is made.

Demaryius Thomas becoming a 'Juggernaut' for Broncos

Lindsay H. Jones, USA TODAY Sports 9:29 p.m. EDT July 28, 2013



ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning lofted a pass down the left side of the Denver Broncos practice field Sunday and barely had to watch it as landed in Demaryius Thomas' hands.

Thomas had split two defensive backs and, though a whistle blew, didn't slow, sprinting 30 more yards to the end zone. As he turned around to make his way back to the huddle, he turned to a group of observers and smiled.

"They didn't make that tackle," Thomas said.

It was the type of play that Thomas made over and over in private workouts this spring with an elite group of NFL wide receivers, including Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green.

"I want to be one of those guys that isn't forgotten once I'm done. That's my main thing," Thomas told USA TODAY Sports.

Wide receivers, perhaps more than players at other positions, make their mark through statistics. Yet Thomas is preparing for the possibility that his individual numbers might go down in 2013 from the 94 catches and 1,434 yards and 10 touchdowns he recorded last season.

This is Thomas' new challenge in Denver, balancing the desire to become one of the game's elite wide receivers while sharing an offensive huddle with other big-name talents in Wes Welker and Eric Decker

But Thomas is the true No.1 receiver, the one with the best combination of size (6-3 and 229 pounds), power to throw a vicious stiff-arm and speed to outrun just about any NFL defensive back.

Gase coached quarterbacks for Detroit in 2007 when the Lions used the No.2 draft pick on Johnson. He whole-heartedly approves of his new star pupil spending his offseason training with Johnson. As Thomas develops as a route-runner (he had a limited base to work with when he arrived from Georgia Tech) Gase hopes other parts of Johnson's game are rubbing off on Thomas.

"The one thing from my experience around Calvin was just how he had the confidence to just go and get the ball," Gase said. "That's the one thing I'm sure (Thomas) is trying to work on, stretching the field and just being able to attack the ball. It's not an easy thing to do. You've got a guy draped on you and you're trying to catch while running full-speed. It's one thing you've got to develop and fight through some of the frustrations so that can happen."

Thomas was a redshirt freshman at Georgia Tech in 2006 when Johnson was in his final collegiate season. Thomas was the tag-along kid brother who watched everything Johnson did, and then tried to do the same.

"I'm trying to be better than him, and I'm trying to get where he's at, because I feel like he's the best in the game," Thomas said.

Seven years later, it hasn't changed all that much, though Thomas has certainly begun to close the gap between him and his mentor.

"Him, A.J. (Green), the guys we work out, those guys are trying to come get me, trying to be the top in the league, as they should," Johnson said last week about Thomas.

While working out in Atlanta and Los Angeles, where he caught passes from New York Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez and went through cardio sessions on the beach, Thomas dropped nearly nine pounds and weighed in at 226 pounds when he arrived for training camp. He's hoping to play at 222 pounds this season, and said he already feels faster.

His teammates notice a difference.

"When he goes out here to work, you would think he had never made a catch in his life, or he's a free agent or something," said teammate Andre Caldwell. "He's a big guy, but has the speed of a little guy, and when he gets the ball, we call him 'Juggernaut' (based on the X-Men character) because he can't be tackled."

From 06-22-2012, 10:33 PMLove it when fellow Bronco fans have nothing better to do than to insult me.

On topic. Demaryius is on the cusp of having an epic season, Manning has never had a receiver the caliber of Thomas. Look for him to shatter all previous receiving records and be placed in the patheon of alltime Bronco greats.


Book it!

Demaryius Thomas has physical ability for Broncos that others dream of

"When I was 238 pounds, I ran a 4.38," said the 6-foot-3 Thomas of his time in the 40-yard dash, a clocking most cornerbacks would be thrilled to run.

"His size and strength and speed allow you to do certain things with him that other players just can't do," Manning said.

"Once I got in the NFL, I was having a conversation with Brian Dawkins and he was telling me, 'You've got to take care of your body,' " Thomas said. "You've got to stay on it, you've got to get massages, you've got to get in the cold tub. You've got to do all of that. And the main thing he said is you've got to watch what you eat."

All of that has led to this: Thomas is in the best shape of his career. He is taking care of a body that is his biggest advantage.

"And I can run, and also when I run my routes, most big guys can't stop," Thomas said. "I've been working on it so much that now I'm able to stop, shift my weight and drop my weight, and that's one of the main things. Then, when I get the ball in my hands, I feel like I'm explosive. I try to make things happen, and most of the time I do."

Is there anybody who still doesn't think this guy is a top 5 WR in the league? Seriously, what doesn't the man do that the best guys do? He catches 1 handers, his foot work is most impressive on the sidelines and endzone. His hands suck in footballs like black holes suck in matter. He makes hard catches look easy. He's huge. He's blazing fast. He blocks well. He runs routes well. He breaks tackles well. He herks and jerks and makes em miss. He's unselfish. He's a team guy. He doesn't have off the field issues.


So to those here who've said that Dez is going to be better, forget that BS. He's doing the same things Megatron is doing right now. He's doing the same things Fitz was doing 5 years ago. If you don't think DT is a top 5 WR you're an idiot.

and Richard Quinn and Alphonso Smith and the list goes on. He got lucky on a couple of picks out of the boatload he received for Cutler and Marshall. Good for him, I hope he dies.
