Physically, Bryant is everything you want in a receiver. Physically, there are few WRs I would take over him in this league. But it looks like it's all going to be wasted talent. If he hasn't learned how to act and play like a professional yet, he'll never learn. Very sad.

My answer is the same as the last time you asked. Dez is a talented WR who is lazy, has poor routes, lacks focus and dmdoesnt know the Playbook. Yet he still outproduces DT... and has had his own share of injuries


So dez is everything bad you could ask for with a reciever and DT is only injury prone?? lol id take DT!

I'd take Thomas only b/c he isn't a head case like Bryant. Otherwise, I think Bryant is better.

DT is more dangerous.. but I don't know if he could ever be a Megatron type talent cuz he drops way too many balls. Like over half his catches this year have been screens.

Isn't this basically a battle of "whose been more of a disappointment"? I wouldn't want either of these guys on my team and it's a shame because they have tremendous physical ability.

Last 11 games where Thomas has been healthy and actually been a big part of the offense.

4\144\2 TD's
7\78\1 TD
7\116
4\76
3\34
4\204\1TD
6\93
5\110\1TD
8\78\1TD
3\34
5\103

So he's got 6\8 of his career TD's in the last 11 games. Why? Because he's actually not banged up and on the field. He had Tebow throwing to him which probably helped with the big plays with Denver's style of lulling the D to sleep than taking a shot but at the same time it obviously hurt him having a QB who couldn't throw that well and didn't throw alot.

DT still makes mistakes. Should have a TD against Houston and has had some drops. He's putting it together tho which is more than you can say about Dez. Thomas will continue to produce, more so than Dez now that he's healthy and weather or not he'll continue to develop into an elite WR is yet to be seen.

How have you defined healthy - active and playing or "playing without any known injuries"?

If its the former then those are very encouraging statistics.

DT! But is he keeps fumbling him and I will have a problem. And to thank Denver could of just traded up for Dez at 24 instead of Tebow at 25, and had DT and Dez Shocked

Man, give me Thomas now. I am a huge Dez supporter, but the guy just doesn't get it, so he'll never reach close to his potential. Dez should've been a top 10 receiver by this year, such a disappointment.

I don't see how anyone is choosing Bryant. If he's physically better, it's not by much. If Bryant has a good work ethic, you'd never ever know it. Everyone knew Thomas would take time to develop, coming from GT... then the injuries and the Tebow didn't help. Now he's playing in a traditional offense and he's acclimated himself to the league and he looks great... while Dez is a major part in his team losing games or while Dez is disappearing totally.

Thomas is the right answer.

This post is so ignorant it's not even funny. Demaryius didn't come into the league with a ton of hype. He was considered a 2nd rounder until he blew up his pro day and ran a 4.38 forty yard dash. Thomas was considered EXTREMELY raw because he was a very inexpierienced route runner.

Since week 11 last season nobody in football has had more yards receiving than Demaryius Thomas. He is in his 3rd season and is a flat out monster. To you saying "it's the battle of who has been more disappointing" is beyond stupid. You can say that about Dez. Not Thomas.

Dez makes too many costly mistakes. I don't know if it's unlucky, probability, lack of concentration, poor hands, poor brain, or what... but it's getting old.
