Michael Thomas has expressed more direct thoughts about Derek Carr, suggesting dissatisfaction with his quarterback’s performance. Thomas took to X, formerly known as Twitter, during the AFC Championship between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens, posting tweets that seemed to criticize Carr.

The wide receiver seemed to take issue with a pass from Carr that resulted in Thomas’s season-ending injury during a November 12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. In response to a fan suggesting he could achieve similar stats to his days with Drew Brees if he stayed healthy, Thomas replied that he was on track for a 1,000-yard season if not for a “bad ball” that caused his injury.

While not explicitly naming Carr in his tweet, it was evident that the quarterback in question was the one who threw the pass. Thomas stated, “well if I didn’t get set up by a bad ball I probably would’ve had a light little 1k yards this year but could of should of I know I get it lol.”

When a fan suggested a change of scenery might be best for Thomas, he responded, “on top of that they wasn’t even trying to get me the ball but it’s no denying my style of play it dont age playa you will see.” Earlier, during a December 3 game against the Detroit Lions, Thomas had tweeted vague posts seemingly aimed at Carr, criticizing a pass that led to an interception.

These posts had led to Thomas deactivating his X account for several weeks, with coach Dennis Allen stating that the matter would be dealt with internally. On Sunday, Thomas also expressed displeasure with Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune, who had written a column towards the end of the season advocating for the Saints to move on from Thomas and cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

In response to a fan sarcastically suggesting an article calling for Thomas’s release, he wrote, “lol written by Jeff Duncan but I bet he won’t write why no OC is taken the job they’ve interviewed. It’s all propaganda and politics. I play the sport the right way; I will always rise.” Whether Thomas will continue to rise with the Saints remains uncertain, as he could become a free agent if the Saints release him in the offseason.
