Keyshawn Johnson insisted that he kept his cool when his nephew, New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas, made the catch.

You know -- that ridiculous 32-yard touchdown catch last Sunday, when Thomas reached his arms around San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock, batted the ball to himself as it glanced off Brock's helmet, and caught it while falling backward.

"Of course we were all jumping up and down," said Johnson, who was in the stands with other family and friends.

But Johnson said it was a catch he expected Thomas to make. When asked what his first reaction was, Johnson said casually, "Ummm, 'Good concentration.' ... Just, 'Oh, OK, he made the catch.' "
