Get this -- Thomas said has already been reviewing Cowboys game film. He has built a career overcoming naysayers with work ethic and preparation and it still holds. Thomas wants a ring but said he couldn't sign with the Patriots, who offered him a contract. He said he ``couldn't stand New England'' after playing them twice for 12 years.
Anyway, Thomas says he preferred not to have a press conference and wanted to keep the hype to a minimum. Thomas said he is healthy, has plenty left in the tank and always had an appreciation for Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense. He also he prefers the 3-4 over the 4-3 and played in it the past three years in Miami.
Here are some of his comments from the interview.
-- ``I know I am still a good player. There is always questions marks and that's just another thing I can overcome.''
-- ``I haven't earned anything in Dallas and that's why I have to go out here and earn it and show it by my actions instead of trying to hype something up. They've got a great team put together. I am just trying to add on and know my role. They've got good linebackers to play with and why not add even more players and add me along with it?''
-- ``I feel like I've got a lot of gas left in the tank. Why shut down if you feel like you can still play and the doctors have been telling you everything is fine.''
