The eyes are the windows to the soul, and no more so than with Demaryius Thomas. In reality, the dude is a simple man and lives his life to a code of honor. Love, God, family, a roof over his mom’s head and a happy nature is all he wants in life. Well that, and 1500 yards receiving and another Superbowl ring.
We can see it in his eyes. We can see DT giving it his best shot at presenting a smiling demeanor as he becomes a Houston Texan. All we have to do is look in his eyes to see that he is both hurt and unsure. It could be that he is sad for the Bronco fans that will watch him gain instant synergy with Deshaun Watson and lay waste to the AFC. It could be that he already misses his Bronco brothers. His teammates already miss him and are collecting their thoughts in order to move on. I mean whenever a team loses a gentleman and excellent team member, the absence could become a fixation. Right this minute, the entire Bronco organization is reeling from the DT trade and trying to collect themselves.
If any quarterback can exploit DT in Manningesque fashion, it is Deshaun Watson, arguably the newest hot QB in the league. I am certain that DT has several more years of solid play now that he is free of the plethora of shitty Denver quarterbacks. Apparently, he was sick of the QB musical chairs and only wanted to commit himself to something real. He wasn’t going to give Keenum time enough to exploit him. He will get his show on the road in Houston. Moreover, he probably has 3 to 4 years of 1200 yard seasons left in him if not more. The bottom line is that Elwood has to make cap space. In addition, DT could not abide the Keenum equation after 2 previous seasons of caca quarterbacks. Chances are great that when free of the Keenum curve, DT kills it. in fact, I am certain of that.
DT get a good night sleep and realize that you are one of Colorado’s favorite sons. You will always have friends here and a home. Give it your best shot man!!!! Oh and expect a really warm reception from Bronco fans. The likes of which you have never seen before.
Good luck DT.
Now let us kick Houston’s ass!!!
