What a tribute

Saints receiver Michael Thomas topped of a 72-yard touchdown catch by pulling off a former Saints receiver's celebration.  And not just any former Saints receiver's celebration, one of the most famous of all-time.

That's right, Joe Horn's cellphone in the goal post celebration.  Thomas even had a flip phone for the special occasion.

Sure Thomas was penalized for using a prop during his celebration, but it was well worth it.  Just ask Joe Horn, who says he was moved to tears by the gesture.

Let's not forget the Saints won the game 45-35, handing the Rams their first loss of the season too.  If you're going to pull a move like this, you better win the game.

Thomas more than made up for the 15-yards on the penalty.  He had 12 catches for 211-yards to go along with his touchdown.
