    ... turning into nothing more than a wasted roster spot. How many times are we going to have to deal with this guy and his 2.5 inches per carry? I don't know about all of you guys, but I am really sick and tired of him being on this team. A 2nd round choice, and he runs like a 7th rounder. I say its time to finally cut his rear end. He is beyond frustrating to watch, and the sooner we get rid of him, the better.

    about to be voted off the island. Miller, Grey, and Gillislee all looked better than him in my opinion.

    By the end of the preseason he's gone. The other three have way more vision and hit the hole with a purpose. Not every pick is a hit- this one is just a flop.

    At this point it does seem that we have better options, thankfully.

    Yet another wasted high-round draft pick, and a trade-up at that-- quick, somebody blame Sparano for the pick!

    And any woman will tell you, if you spend time fumbling around and can't find the hole, you need to go. Yuck, yuck, yuck.....

    Seriously though, was never high on the guy, we just didn't have any options before. Now we do.

    I think Jonas Gray showed urgency in his play. I was really impressed with his all around game. If it was up to me, Gray would have Thomas' spot.

    If Jonas Gray was better, I'd be fine with cutting Thomas now. Unfortunately, Thomas is our 2nd best back on the roster and we need to keep him for now.

    He's the John Beck of running backs. Just absolutely awful.

    I think I am the only person on this forum that likes Daniel Thomas. Much like how I was constantly criticized for liking Chris Clemons, bring on all the heat. I like Thomas.

    He has NEVER been the second best back on the roster. He certainly wasnt last night either.

    I loved him out of K-State. This has been disappointing. He has okay vision, okay speed, okay elusiveness...all just okay, none good.

    Is it bad that i want him to fail, rather than show some flashesmin preseason and waste a roster spot?

    He's simply failed to live up to expectations the FO had for him when they drafted him. Thank goodness for Lamar Miller and Mike Gillislee.

    Not sure why everyone is crying over Thomas.

    Sure he hasn't lived up to the hype of a second round RB, but look at the 2011 draft. All of the 1-3 round RB's all disapointing.

    1st Round - Mark Ingram (Saints, basically a borderline #2/3 RB for the Saints)

    2nd Round - Ryan Willaims (Cards, Injury and now beaten out by Rashard Mendenhall), Shane Veeren (Pats, decent RB nothing special), Mikel Leshour (Lions, Injury and now beaten out by Reggie Bush), Daniel Thomas (Dolphins, decent RB nothing special and now beaten out by Miller)

    3rd Round - DeMarco Murray (Cowboys, Explosive rookie year with a Sophmore slump), Stevan Ridley (Pats, average RB), Alexander Green (Packers, ????.....exactly),

    2011 was just a very weak RB class and the Phins HAD to draft someone. It is what is it.

    I would honestly take ANY of those Rbs over D.Thomas.

    He is not a Philbin type of player either, we all saw that last year on Hard Knocks. You have to be a workhorse to be an NFL running back and Thomas just doesn't have the "it" factor. He is expendable after what we saw from Miller and Gray last night, let Gillislee develope and play special teams, cut our losses with Thomas.

    Ever since that hamstring injury his rookie year, he's never been the same. Never liked him. Glad we have Miller, Gillislee, and Gray

    I still don't understand how this coaching staff wanted Thomas over Bush. Even Miller at this point. I hope they don't take long to cut Thomas. Hasn't been impressive at all.
