    Thomas has not looked particularly good so far this year — at least not what we have been accustomed. Something is seriously amiss with Eric Wright. He does not look hurt; he looks outclassed. This makes the decision to start Haden easy. And no WRs are not going to get it done in this league — or this Division, for that matter. It is either a QB problem or a WR problem — possibly both — but it makes this team one-dimensional. But, Stuckey had 5 catches against Cincy — so not all WRs are MIA. We need a big-time LB pass rusher; these guys seem a bit slow to me. We also need a first-class WR. I don’t know what is going on with Rogers, but it looks like he already has his bags packed. They are keeping games close and finally finished this week — albeit without the killer instinct that would have preserved a double-digit lead late. Ward is the real deal, at least so far. He leads the team in tackles. Let’s see what they dial up against Atlanta.
