    Haven't been able to see many games and wondered if these guys are playing at all? Along with hoping our receivers progress in their development (which it appears they are), I thought maybe these two guys would at some point add something positive to our offense - any chance of that happening? Have either made any contributions to this point? Thanks....

    Mill has been inactive all 6 games, a few of them for the few.

    Thomas has been active every week, and saw plenty of time last weekend with Graham and Mills out. He lined up a lot at FB, but didn't catch any passes. He's been doing great as a blocker, and has 2 catches for 40 yards on the season.

    Thomas played quite a bit on Sunday versus the Bills. He was only thrown to once, and apparently was quite a ways down on Brady's progression because he was open several times. So far I like what I see from this kid, but it seems that Graham's absence had an effect on the running game.

    I don't think fans realize that in the Pats offense Mills,Thomas,and Evans are essentially ONE guy.

    Whether it's a 3 TE alignment or 2 TE and a HB/FB......it's still ONE guy.

    So,their value is more ST than anything.

    If you add Pass to the mix,it's still just ONE guy.
