Tyler Thigpen's transformation from scrub to savior has been remarkable. Earlier in the year, Thigpen was 14-of-36 for 128 yards, three picks and a fumble in a Week 3 performance. The past three games, Thigpen is 66-of-102, 710 yards, six touchdowns, no interceptions and no fumbles.
I see no reason why he would slow down. First of all, New Orleans' secondary sucks. The Saints are 21st against the pass, a statistic that has been dropping ever since sensational rookie corner Tracy Porter suffered a season-ending injury. Now, top corner Mike McKenzie is gone for the year as well.
Secondly, Thigpen has two Pro Bowl-caliber talents at his disposal. Tony Gonzalez and Dwayne Bowe have to be thrilled that the Chiefs have a competent quarterback for the first time since 2006. And now that Mark Bradley is emerging, Kansas City's offense has made the full transition from lackluster to lethal.
