He blames his lack of game day production on his work during the week.
"My practice habits weren't good last year; there were other things that I didn't do that carried over to practice," said Thomas. "Those things I can't allow myself to do again."
Thomas had just 2.5 sacks last season.
"My numbers were down," said Thomas. "When I looked back on it I realized that some of the stuff I was doing last year (in 2006) I wasn't doing this year (in 2007). You could see by my numbers that my play was down. Some of my plays started to get taken away last year, and I could really see it. That was an eye opener right there."
And Thomas hopes last year was just an aberration.
