The record-setter has dominated the season, easily outdistancing his fellow receivers in catches and yards. Entering Sunday, Thomas enjoyed a 219-yard lead in receiving yards and a 29-catch lead in receptions for the season.

Thomas not only passed Harrison's single-season receptions record Sunday, but he also blasted past Randy Moss (5,396) for the most receiving yards through a player's first four seasons in NFL history. And he surpassed Antonio Brown's record (265) for most receptions in a two-season span.

Thomas' combination of pristine route running, ability to find open space, snap off routes, muscle defenders and ultra-sticky hands makes him a menace for defensive backs. Opponents know Drew Brees is targeting Thomas seemingly every play. None have corralled him this season.

With one game to spare, Thomas already set the receptions record. With the Saints still battling for playoff positioning, the dynamite receiver will add to that greatness in Week 17.

Re: Michael Thomas sets catch record

I love that he did this in the season AFTER we paid him.

The guy is a technician at running routes, he makes every route look the same so you never know what hes going to do.

The route he ran when Taysom threw him the ball was beautiful, as was the one when he broke the record.

Congrats CGM! Too late to pencil him in on that NFL 100 Top 100?

True. There has been a history of players getting paid and failing to live up to the money.

Re: Michael Thomas sets catch record

Listening to people talk about how he practices reminds me of listening to people talk about how Jerry Rice used to practice. Mike works for it. I'm very proud he's on our team!

Re: Michael Thomas sets catch record

Mike should really thank the other 7th Wide Receivers that we have on the team.

He is every bit as good as he thinks he is but his utilization is not by anyone's choice.

That said, Drew should thank Mike for a few things.
