They say training camp is a learning experience and I would have to agree because I never knew getting a "golly" out of the backup quarterback was the benchmark for the incredible until right this very second...
Look, I'll preface this by saying that I know it was just one catch against an unknown player during the first week of what will be a very long, very arduous summer. My brain knows that. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for my heart. You see, my brain says promising second round pick, but my heart says Jerry Rice. My brain says NFL players lay out to make one handed grabs all the time, but my heart says that Michael Thomas' catch radius makes Odell Beckham's look like that of a T-Rex. My brain says temper expectations, but my heart has already put him in the Hall Of Fame. I guess my knowledge and my feelings will just have to compromise and say that Michael Thomas is far more "camp beast" than "camp body" and as of now that's the most you could possibly expect out of him. That being said, someone whose much more familiar with skill position talent looks like he's closer to siding with my heart, and I'll be damned if that doesn't make my brain start to question everything it's ever known about rookie wide receivers.
