Thomas told reporters that he doesn’t know how the Seahawks’ secondary will cover the Broncos’ receivers, but if Seattle puts Sherman on him, Thomas would take that as a compliment.
“He’s a great player. I’d love to have that matchup and show what kind of player I am. I don’t know if we’ll match up, but like I said, he’s a great player,” Thomas said.
If Sherman is on Thomas, that likely means Thomas won’t get many passes thrown his way: Peyton Manning loves to look for mismatches in the opposing secondary, and when you’re playing Seattle, looking for a mismatch means looking away from Sherman. But whatever happens, Thomas thinks it’s going to be fun.
“They’ve got a great defense and we’ve got a great offense,” Thomas said. “This is what you play for.”
And that’s what we watch for.
