"I had a poor performance today", Elliott said.
Thomas participated in the team's walk-through Saturday and the Seahawks plan to start Thomas on Sunday against the Cowboys. It just so happened that the Cowboys were in town to face the Seahawks on Sunday, with Seattle dominating and coming out victorius.
Since then, he has been embroiled in a staredown with the Seahawks, who have given new contracts to lesser players such as wide receiver Tyler Lockett, while playing hardball with the final remaining member of the "Legion of Boom".
Thomas will cost a lot, but if the Chiefs are true Super Bowl contenders, as they have proven to be this early in the year, then the price would be worth it. Nevertheless, an unrepentant Thomas told reporters after the win, "I need to make sure my body is 100 [percent]". If they were invested in me, I would be out there practicing. On Sunday, as trade rumors continue to swirl, Thomas got the Cowboys.
However, the Cowboys' All-Pro running back readily accepted the blame for the team's defeat after he committed some timely miscues. He chased down Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett following a game previous year, telling the head coach "come get me", and engaged in an offseason holdout this past summer.
