Unfortunately I feel Thomas may have turned into a diva a while ago.

Remember the off-season when he was arguing with Devante Parker over twitter, all because Parker said its easier to cover Mike than to get covered by Stephon Gilmore.

I remember back in 2018 vs Washington, a bunch of their players refused to even comment on MT as a person because they said "he's not even worth the words" - one of them was Josh Norman, a guy who for years physically fought with OBJ on Sundays.

Looks like our whole franchise is going down the drain, right, JP.

It was good while it lasted. Back into the sewer, huh?

Oh, well. It was good while it lasted.

Yup. You hit it dead on. We need to cut him now! But, it's too late now. Our run is over.

Every WR is a diva in this league that is good. That's why it's good to get a new one every few years.

Thatís a stupid reason to suspend somebody. If you donít have fights in practice your team is soft.

Eh... Paytonís the type to give players a lot of leeway in that regard. There has to be more to the story I think.

No ****. That was the point I was making. It happens on EVERY team. My guess is that they wanted to sit Thomas until after the bye so why not send everyone a message. You think that a possibility, rez?
