Re: Remember When...Michael Thomas

I thought it was hilarious at first but when they wound up starting at the 40 I got nervous. If we had lost it would be different story. I saw an interview as he was headed to the lockers and he looked like he realized it was a bad idea in hindsight. He said something like “ I put the cell phone there but wasn’t planning to use it unless we had the game in hand as and it wouldn’t affect my team mates. Luckily it didn’t hurt thank god.” I think he realized how much it could have hurt the team and learned his lesson.

I'm OK with the stunt in general, but agree the timing was really bad. The game was far from out of reach at that point. It could have gone real bad, real fast.

Hindsight typically makes all practical jokes seem like a bad idea...

Bet he gets fined.

Re: Remember When...Michael Thomas

Hated it when Horn did it and hated it even more when Thomas did it. Stupid timing, selfish antics, and unfortunately detracts from what otherwise was a brilliant day by Michael. He went from looking like an elite receiver in this league arguably the best there is right now to nothing more than an Ocho-cinco style clown.

I know I'm going to get rocked by fans for this and I don't care. It was a stupid and selfish stunt and he dropped many notches in my eyes for pulling this crap. It's the one aspect of the game I can't stand. I am all for spontaneous acts of celebration but I detest the choreographed and pre-planned garbage like this. Time to grow up Michael.

Re: Remember When...Michael Thomas

Looked like the same phone. The whole thing was made to look like the original joke. Did he get it from Joe Horn yet Joe says he didn't know. One thing is for sure... that phone was outdated.

It would have been great had we be winning by more. It certainly scared the crap out of all of us. LOL

Hindsight is he beat the press at the line to convert on 3rd down yet again as he rambled 70+ yards for a TD to put us up by 10. Hindsight is it didn’t affect us in the least bit because the Rams didn’t even score. This is why players shouldn’t give a damn about what a fan says or thinks.

"Hindsight" says he didn't know the Rams wouldn't score with good field position. And judging from the post game presser with Payton, coach felt the same way. I'm sure Thomas doesn't care what the fans think, but I bet he cares what Sean thinks.

As I said, I have no problem with the stunt itself, just the timing.
