I'm not going to lie. I had high hopes for former Kansas City Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen last night. Unfortunately, Thigpen let me down by....being Tyler Thigpen. I even signed him to my fantasy football team and started him yesterday. Yeah, I blew it.
Thigpen led the Miami Dolphins' offense to....zero points. Granted, the Chicago Bears defense is pretty good this year but still. If you watched the game, you saw the Tyler Thigpen we all know. Hard running. Erratic at times. Flashes of potential but nothing consistent.
Thigpen was 17/29 for 187 yards. He threw one pick and should have had at least one more but Lance Briggs dropped the INT. He did not throw any touchdowns. He also had 27 rushing yards on 6 attempts.
I think some fans of certain NFL teams will still be clamoring for Thigpen, a 2011 free agent, to come their way. He was fun to watch last night even if he didn't produce any points. How many of you think Thigpen is going to be a "sought" after free agent this year?
