Social media went nuts after Michael Thomas paid homage to one of the greatest receivers in Saints history during Saturday’s game against the Rams.
Thomas came up with a huge play in a clutch situation, as great receivers often do, which essentially daggered the Rams. Brees found him running a vertical route, and Thomas did the rest. The end result was a 73-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter, giving the Saints a 10-point lead.
But it was the celebration that followed that drew reactions. Thomas pulled out a flip phone from under the goalpost and held it to his ear — just like Horn did roughly 15 years ago.

That was too great for words, but we have to wonder, how does one even go about procuring a flip phone? Maybe Thomas was bored scouring eBay one day.
