The staff members at Footballguys are full of opinions. In a Faceoff, we allow two members to voice their opinions on a specific player. One picked the high side, and the other took the low side.
High Side by Stephen Holloway
Despite sub-standard play, particularly in the playoffs a year ago, Demaryius Thomas has averaged 100 receptions per year over the past four seasons. He caught 105 passes last season for 1,304 yards, 6 touchdowns and a career low 12.4 yards per catch. It's July and we still don't know who will be the Broncos' starting quarterback. The three starting options remain Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch, and Trevor Siemian. Yes, the quarterback play remains, but Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler combined last year to complete 60.7% of their passes and averaged only 6.96 YPA. They totaled 19 passing touchdowns, a low water mark that only topped four teams, the Cowboys, 49ers, Vikings and the Rams.
