    Since some of you turned this in to a defend Sam thread and it has come up on another thread now.....I would like to raise the Alamo Bowl game and how quickly the offense came alive when Thompson entered as an exhibit in any argument for or against Sam's alleged, perceived, or potential weaknesses.
    I am not even sure how I view it myself...Just raising it to stir the debate and for the sake of argument...

    Yep Sam’s injuries are partly on coaching. TH clung to Sam’s strengths like a security blanket but those same strengths are the ones that got him beat up.

    We’ll never know for sure if a better coach would have been able to develop Sam into a more complete player. It’s possible the guy guy is near his ceiling as a player. But my guess is Sam could have been more dynamic in a better system.
    (And he would have been less prone to injury!)
    one thing we do know is whenever Sam hit a wall, he hit a wall. There were games where the offense just seemed hopeless. (See Alamo bowl last year)
