  • Juwan Thompson

    So I finally got to sit down and watch all but the last 7 minutes of the game. ( Damn anniversary and lighting delay did me in. ) Anyways I have to say the vision on this kid is incredible. Can anyone lay down the stats from this game. Seemed like he was breaking off 10 yard at a chuck. I have fallin' off the CJ wagon and hopping on the Thompson wagon. Although what I saw of CJ he looked good as well. How great would it be to have a knock out running game to complement the air attack.

    Before you all go crazy I searched for a thread on this and I didn't find one. Kinda surprised me.

    I loved what I saw - don't get me wrong.

    But also remember that almost every pre-season there is always some running back that is "the next TD" in some people's eyes...

    Mario Fannin
    Xavier Oman
    CJ Anderson
    Juwan Thompson

    They are undrafted for a reason.

      He had a great game. Pretty apparent to see his limited upside based on athletic ability but does seem to have nice vision and some traits that can help us. Reminds me a little of Reuben Drougns.

        Ya I know its preseason and I know its one game but Vision is Vision. He just seemed to always find the hole which is something we have not had in a very long time. For the record there will never be another TD.

          What I loved was how he FINISHED all of his runs. Punishing the tackler, lowering the shoulder. Physical, tough running.

            Did Mario Fannin ever do anything in a game?
            I remember the hype around him during TC because of how fast he was, but I don't remember him tearing anything up during a game. Besides his knee of course

            Xavier Omon did have one good game, but his was against the 3-4th stringers I believe.

            Anderson is on the team so if Thompson is the next Anderson that is a great thing

            We will see, lot of time left
            But IMO Thompson has been more impressive than Fannin or Oman ever were

            If Anderson can't go Sunday I would like to see Thompson get reps with the 1s

                I thought he looked like TD out there, really. Great one cut move decisive "Just Boom and gone. And as mentioned vision, instantly spots hole and I through boom

                    Man he really popped #45 when he landed on his head. Awesome.

                        Couple of questions.

                        #1 Did he catch any passes ?? Can he ??

                        #2 How is his pass pro ?

                        #3 he seems to be an upright runner. They have a tendency to get hurt more. Did he have a injury record ?

                            the hit he took from #27? you guys think that could be unnecessary roughness? he was out of bounds when #27 kinda used Thompson momentum and drove his head into the ground.
