10-2 ain't bad. I mean, you can't really complain about a 5:1 success ratio in just about anything other pulling out, so - while I admit that Michael Thomas comes off as salty in this week's spreading of spite on social media - it's a small price to pay for the amount of sodium he's rubbed in the wounds he's opened in opposing secondaries. To the victor goes the spoils, so - considering the Saints' record - the Cowboys were nothing if not opportunistic in mocking the previously unguardable for a performance in a primetime game that was as underwhelming (due in part to the double-team of questionable officiating, for both teams) as that of the rest of his offense...
That said, even when it comes across as sour grapes, the truth still burns bitterly. Therefore, regardless of being in the right place at the right time when Drew Brees tried to toss one into the turf, Jourdan Lewis isn't exactly setting any snap-count records this season.
The court of public opinion is one in which statistical evidence comes secondary to the scoreboard, so Michael Thomas is going to have to hold an 'L' off the field just as he did on the field. However, at least he can take some solace in how heavily weighted that scoreboard has been in his favor thus far. He's emptying the entire economy size can of Morton's this season, and only twice has he had to use it to season his pride. He definitely won't settle for those odds, but Saints' fans are more than happy to.
