Default Eart Thomas Radio Interview

For all you Earl Thomas fans here is a radio interview with Earl Thomas specifically about his draft preparation.

Earl Thomas begins his interview at the 29 minute mark.


http://profootball.scout.com/2/947199.html

A lot of interesting dialouge about his ability to play as a cornerback ( nickel back in his first year) and future down the line as a starting corner or free safety.

IF you listened to that show in full the most interesting point raised for me was Rolando McClain.

Steuber or Rueter ( not sure which one) said that some scouts are not sold on McClain. The comment / reason given is that he is tall, rangy and does not have outside coverage speed.

To me this sounded as if he was being considered for possible outside duties. I always thought that he was purely a between the tackle thumper who would excel in the 3-4.

I would have absolutely no problem with a few teams having this assessment of him. I say let him free fall and land in the lap of the gods at #18. The only stumbling block to this will be the giants who will either go McClain or another DE pass rushing demon.

Keep an eye / ear out for this radio show every week. I have found a few gems from it recently.

We have 3 options here really.

On our free to air TV we have one channel that plays key games in HD

On our cable TV we get

*ESPN / ESPN HD sunday night and monday night games
*FOXSPORTS which carries NFC day games

Broadcast times are usually begin at 5am, 8am and night games at 11am on Mondays.

I catch the replays when I get home from work.

I usually only get 4 - 5 steelers games a year. We get a helluva lot of NFC east games unfortunately.

damn...

we get nbc, thursday night sunday 1pm and sunday 5pm and other primtime kickoffs.

mondays nights are at 1am so i use the internet when the bandwith is really high.

id love to wake up at 5am one day and watch the steelers.

we always get these stupid nfc east games. I watched 9 steeler games this year through t.v. and online and the others i listened through radio :(
