Michael Thomas sets catch record

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The greatest thing about MT, IMHO, is the fact his game is not built on speed which means he should be able to be good for a loooong time....

Re: Michael Thomas sets catch record

Another important thing about CGM that goes unmentioned is that he's a GREAT teammate.
Go listen to some of his interviews or watch how he always congratulates another receiver when they make a play or TD. For someone who wants the ball and wants to make plays, he's one of the most unselfish players on the team.

Re: Michael Thomas sets catch record

The route Thomas ran that set the record was a thing of beauty. He must have put four moves on the DB within 3 yards. The amazing thing is that the ball was on the way before his final break to the sideline.

Thomas and Brees are Siamese twins....joined at the brain. Thomas is a great receiver and likely would be regardless of where he played, but Brees makes him the greatest. Likewise, Thomas' skills are also allowing Brees to go places (statistically) that he had never gone before. If Thomas can maintain this level of play he will likely add years to Brees' career.

Seriously? Is he not in the top 100? That crap is bogus if he's not.

5 WR's went before him. Tyreek Hill wasn't taken until the 5th. MT is amazing but look at these two, both paired with exceptional QB's.

Thomas is just a kid. Keep this up and he’ll grow into a full blown goat.
