Anyone else think he has a huge night tonight? I'm going with 8 receptions 152 yards and two touchdowns.

Yes... I'm thinking he'll have a big game...

Another interesting thought is with Sneed out, who's going to be the 3rd... I don't mean 3rd Wide Receiver, I mean 3rd receiving option... I imagine it will be either Fleener or Coleman. Both guys are feeling the fire and they will have a chance to be involved and have a chance to make a difference...

For a wide receiver of his size, he is quick. I like the way he gets off of the line and has more than enough speed to be a real threat deep. While there is only one ball, Thomas needs to see more opportunities. Maybe avoid Fleener, and use Thomas to loosen up the defense to result in an improved running game.

If the Falcons were smart, theyd put alford and a safety on cooks to double him and press him since there is safety help over top, and put trufant on mike thomas.

Have we figured out if Thomas was out for the end of the 2nd game because of injury? If he was healthy then all indications are Thomas will be the third option behind Coleman. I don't know the full play or how Thomas was covered but in multiple key situations Brees opted to throw to Coleman despite him being covered. I'd think Thomas would have the bigger game based on talent but I can't overlook those couple plays.

Someone will need to step up and it could be Thomas but don't sleep on Henrylee Lewis either. Let him and Cooks fly off the line a few times and it would put the Falcons defense on their heels in a hurry.

Either way with Snead out someone has to step up...........:idunno:

And if we're smart well test Trufants Ball skills vs Thomas. He hasn't proven he can make people pay for testing him. It's actually a matchup I'm looking forward to and expecting to be a win.

The other is how they'll cover Fleener and if he'll make the most out of what should be numerous opportunities

Man, I completely dropped the ball on that... I absolutely wanted to see who was on the field on like 5 offensive plays before and 5 offensive plays after Colman was thrown the ball... it could have been when Sneed got hurt... I never followed up...

Monday night, whole world watching(except the few that will watch the debate :hihi:), I expect him to act a fool tonight. I hope for 10 catches 150+ yards and 3 tds. Make it a career, albeit short one, game. If he shines like he should, he will become a Saints god tonight.

This. I think that this will be the defensive alignment. I think that Tommy Lee Lewis has a big chance to impact this game tonight. I think that if he gets reps and we run him and Drew trusts him, then the world will meet TLL tonight.
