Michael Thomas returning would provide safety net to Saints QB

Whether itís Jameis Winston or someone else, a parachute would go a long way

By KSkiver35 Jan 20, 2022, 10:00am CST

If you ask anyone who watched the New Orleans Saints last year what their primary issue was, the answer would be one word: Receivers. The lack of offensive weapons for the Saints plagued them all season, whether it was with Jameis Winston, Trevor Siemian, or Taysom Hill under center. It put an exorbitant amount of pressure on the defense, and it led to a team that finished one game shy of the playoffs.

At receiver, the Saints had Marquez Callaway, TreíQuan Smith, Deonte Harty, and Lilí Jordan Humphrey running routes primarily. They combined for 127 catches, 1,894 yards, and 14 touchdowns. For comparison, 2019 Michael Thomas caught 149 passes for 1,725 yards and 9 touchdowns. Now, there are dozens of factors up in the air regarding Thomas. His injury rehab and status with the Saints remains uncertain, but should he return in 2022, it would be a huge boon for a Saints offense that desperately needs targets.

It would particularly help if Winston were still slinging for the Saints. If Winston is comfortable with a receiver, he can be extremely accurate. He completed 71 percent of his passes to Chris Godwin in 2019, while completing 60 percent of his passes on the season. Though Mike Evans is a better analogue physically to Thomas, Godwin runs more similar routes to Thomas, who isnít as physical at the point of the catch as Evans.

Hill to Thomas is actually a known quantity. In four games together in 2020, Hill completed 30 of 37 passes to Thomas for 343 yards. Thomasís catch percentage was up just over 80 percent. That is up with Thomasís most efficient numbers, whereas his 11.6 yards per catch were in line with his career numbers.

For all of the quips about Thomasís tendency to run slants, they are his most effective route and easily his most targeted. In 2019, Thomas had a DVOA of 32.8 percent being targeted on slant routes. That was 36 targets. However, all of his best routes were ...

Just wondering, but Is the point of this article that having CGM back on the field would be beneficial to the offense? Thatís heavy. In other news, not turning the ball over is better than committing turnovers ! Who new?

How typically passive-aggressive of you little speedo!

And if anyone here is qualified to know about being "off" it would be you since you see it in your mirror every day.

Idiot.

Keep it coming little speedo. This is an excellent example of how you berate others here and have been doing so for a very long time...ah, but no more little speedo. Attack me as much as your disorder requires. You certainly will NOT be attacking anyone else here ever again.

I gave you a 'like', and thanks again for another example for the file.

Tick, tick, tick...

Just making it to that game was awesome. It gave us a sense of what was to come.
