I just hope this doesn’t go on so long that he doesn’t get enough work with pads on and winds up getting injured.

Thomas will be fine. As AG suggested, this is an excellent opportunity to increase repoire with other receivers, especially Cooks...

Guessing PFF would have him paid as the No. 3 WR in the league?

I'm watching the Div Playoff game against the Eagles right now.
It's my first time seeing it on tv as I was at the game.

Mike was freaking unstoppable in that game.
I just can't see not paying him.

Indeed he was. When the rest of the offense was struggling, MT went off.

He is the best reciever in the league right now. We would be insane to not pay him.

Difficult part about where we are in the Thomas negotiations is the guaranteed money vs the total potential contract per year; Thomas and agent want both...

I'd prefer increasing the guaranteed portion so as to reward his play; also, I'd prefer a lower starting point when this contract must eventually be re-worked down the road...

Mike's been awesome, and will become more lethal as other offenseive options (e.g. Cook, Kirkwood, Tre'Quan et al) become more proficient, impacting Thomas' numbers, but making the Total Offense better...
