Thomas has had a forgettable last few weeks.

He’s come off as weak and uninspired. The only purpose he’s served was filling a roster spot.

It would help the offense considerably to have the Thomas that Denver had the first go-round against the Colts when he caught three touchdowns.

That JT makes it more difficult to game plan and prepare for. The Thomas the Broncos have gotten since the Rams game shouldn’t leave the bench.

Thomas needs to be more physical. He needs to fight back and play with some fire and passion all of the time, not just when catching touchdowns.

That will not only benefit him, but the offense and the team.

More than Manning, at least offensively, which JT Denver gets is the biggest question mark.
