Thomas is on a historic path.

He’s only the ninth receiver in NFL history to record 100-yard games in six-straight games. He’s only two shy of Calvin Johnson’s NFL record of eight.

Can Thomas pull the feat again against St. Louis? More than anything, that’s what I’m watching for from this game.

Thomas is not only a great football player, he’s a great person. He makes it easy to root for him.

And with the struggles he had to start this season, that should make Broncos Country want to cheer for him even louder.

Thomas is proving each week that he is one of the best receivers in the game along with Johnson. There’s no doubt Johnson is there. Thomas is there as well.

His seventh-straight 100-yard game will force people to pay attention and put his name there.

Enough with the talk that Manning made him a great receiver. Go back and look at who his quarterbacks were before Manning arrived in the Mile High City, yet he still made plays – and blocked.
