Can't Guard Mike...From His Phone During Mardi Gras, And Cam Jordan Joined In With Some Social Media Shenanigans Of His Own
I'm not going to put to much thought into these tweets. After all, judging by both the frequency of the timestamps and the fact that their curator was coming off his birthday weekend in spending last night and this morning slowly riding around a city that's in an alcohol-induced hysteria, I can't imagine all that much clear thought was put into publishing them (hence the deletion of some).
That being said, without pouring the proverbial drinks down Michael Thomas' throat, I love that all signs point to his version of "drunk words are sober thoughts" being related entirely to dominating the National Football League. I expected nothing less than for his competitive overdrive to be in 5th gear at all times, and him being unable to relax and enjoy Fat Tuesday without giving the rest of the league the skinny on the Saints' plans for reckoning is perfectly fitting of his personality. Michael Thomas has a one track mind, and that track just so happens to run clean over every single person that's either doubted him or lined up across from him. That couldn't be made more clear than him being unable to be guarded from his phone and serving as the eye of a tweet-storm during an otherwise upbeat event like Mardi Gras.
Ruthless. Absolutely ruthless. Perhaps not as ruthless as nicknaming an opposing left tackle after a mild vehicular inconvenience...
...but celebrating the extended contract of a familiar foe and blatantly using it as recruitment tool for your own impending free agents before the ink has even dried on it is pretty close to as cutthroat. Cam Jordan doesn't quite have a Michael Thomas-level of vindictiveness in his veins, but you can see Cam Newton's wine rack as proof that he's certainly not one to mince words that reference division rivals. Hopefully Alex Okafor returns, but the Buccaneers are going to need to do a lot more than cross their fingers if they don't want Marcus Davenport or whoever lines up opposite Cam Jordan to sack an investment that the Saints' resident stock breaker has determined to be no more valuable than leftovers. He might as well speak for all Saints' fans, so tell 'em Thomas...
