Thinking back about Zach Thomas I remember watching Hard Knocks last year and they had a short segment on him and how he had a personal masseuse that would stretch him out everyday. When I first saw that I was thinking he was one of those guys that took care of his body pretty well but looking back on it you could take it as a red flag that maybe Thomas was done. I loved the idea of bringing Thomas in here but he never rose to the occasion like Brooking did and I think alot had to do with the "locker room distractions" the Cowboys endured last year.
Let's just get this out of the way, compared to last year this team has so much more commraderie towards one another you see it all the time on the sidelines. I think we have to realize that T.O. probably didn't intend to create tension within the locker room but he sure threw alot of people under the bus and that was percieved as "T.O. being Team Obliterator" and then the media just took it to the next level.
