Re: Jeff Duncan | Michael Thomas needs to wise up, wake up and grow up ó before itís too late

Man I love this guy's fire and work ethic. But I kept wondering if he was going to turn into one of those class A *******s after he got paid.

And it's starting to look like he has. Reports of him fighting with teammates, being insubordinate to coaches and accusing staff members of stupid ****.

If he thinks he's bigger than the organization, please get rid of him. I hate that crap.

Maybe he learns from it. Maybe he doesn't. However, if he doesn't learn something he would be a very valuable trade asset. I want to be clear that I don't want to see him play elsewhere. He's a game changer and I want him to be a Saint for life.

Thomas needs to be careful...

"Per the language of the contract, a copy of which PFT has obtained, the suspension makes those guarantees ďnull and void.Ē That would leave Thomas without the full financial security that comes from his long-term contract, and it would allow the Saints to easily move on from him after either of the next two seasons if his performance dips, if he canít stay healthy, or if they simply decide theyíve had enough."

They technically didn't suspend him, but if he continues to act out, there is a easy avenue for the Saints to get out of his deal.

The Saints are 0-42 when running the ball less than 15 times in a game.

Time and place for everything getting into with a coach or public statements of displeasure ... Just ask Brandin Cooks How fast the train left the NO Saints Station.

Having said that hope MT is around for a long time but this was not a good look.

MT is probably at this point one of the best receivers we've had, but I'd trade that in a heart beat if we could have 10 more years of Marques Colston not saying a word and just executing.
