Saints WR Michael Thomas to miss several weeks

Apparently there is an outside chance he plays this weekend. Dude is one of those grit your teeth and bare it type players, so I wouldnt completely rule it out. 

He broke his hand last year in week 16...never missed time and really didn't even hear any complaints about it. Dude is REALLY tough. I don't doubt that he can play through the pain, the question is whether or not it's a good idea.

Bounties and arrogance mostly. Arrogance in light of only making it out of the NFC once. 

Seriously this crap again?  The "bounties" were things every team were doing, which was discussed by multiple sources already and the Saints were just made an example because it was convenient since the NFL needed to look like it was taking player safety more seriously.

Know how that feels.

I'm sorry not every team was taping other teams initial script run through practices.  Some of the other ones... yeah probably.

I’m sure this makes Viking fans feel so much better.

For their team not being good enough that year?  I mean should Saints fans still be upset about the BS no call on the PI?

Most definitely. My point is, just don’t expect anyone else to be.

The Vikings also had their own bounty program. But if their bitterness helps them sleep better at night...whatever.

Who knows. For the record, I’m not saying the Saints are wrong, I’m saying nobody likes you. But that’s not necessarily that bad a thing is it?

Thomas is out this week but wasn’t placed on the 3week IR...do apparently the Saints are hopeful to getting him back next week. Not a lock but the outside chance is worth more than the extra roster spot.

I love the intricacies of the new 3 week IR. It makes injuries more a chess game than a checkers game for teams. I hope there is some continuation of a short term injury list that doesnt count against roster for the post-pandemic world.

I don't understand why there isn't more flexibility on IR. With the premium placed on player safety wouldn't it make more sense to allow teams some flexibility so injured players can get the right help and then be playing again sooner rather then have them out way longer then they need be or pushed back in way sooner to save that roster spot.

Exactly! Keep the three week IR, its footballs DL.
