Yeah, Thomas is the truth. I'll venture to say that if Ohio ST. was a passing, vertical offense, Thomas wouldve been thee WR of 2016. Thomas' actual skill set were kind of a secret because OSU ran the ball so much and so successfully. Plus, like him, or hate him, Keyshawn Johnson is his uncle and I'm pretty sure he's been in Michael's ear from the get. Thomas is a streamlined version of Marques Colston, and I absolutely love the way he plays the game. I know it's crazy early, but Michael Thomas looks like he's gonna be all world!what I am seeing on that field tells me an emphatic NO
his instincts are off the charts
btw, he caught all 6 targets vs Seattle
If Brett Favre and George Blanda can do it into their 40's, then Drew Brees can certainly do it as well (given how well he takes care of his body and prepares in the offseason)!All we need to do is upgrade Coleman with another solid WR and we're set for many, many of years with the best WR core in football. It's just a shame that Brees won't be around for 6+ years to lead this core of receivers.
It was incredible. Not since the Crabtree/Sherman battles of 2013 has a receiver gotten under his skin so much.He made Sherman cry to the refs over and over again. LOVED it.
Payton had Thomas next to him when Sherman walked up to chat with him after the game...wonder if he whispered anything to him about Thomas. Its no secret we've been looking for that type of WR to go against Sherman since 2013. We were interested in Sammie Coates as well as the continued development of Nick Toon at the time.It was incredible. Not since the Crabtree/Sherman battles of 2013 has a receiver gotten under his skin so much.
I really think Seattle was spent after the long Cardinals game from the week before. I think they weren't expecting a physical game and when they got it, they started looking to the refs to bail them out.
Hocculi and his crew, while annoying at times, call a really no-nonsense game. It was irritating the "Legion of Boom" that they weren't getting bailed out once the Saints started punching back.
