Michael Vick Hated Michael Thomas' Cell Phone Celebration, 'It's Way Too Much'

Michael Thomas cellphone

The touchdown celebration wars of the early 2000s NFL featured some of the league's best talent trying to outdo each other on a weekly basis. Though uncharacteristic from Michael Thomas, his game-clinching 72-yard touchdown late in the fourth for the New Orleans Saints was so big for the team, No. 13 had to break out a celebration to honor the occasion.

But, Vick clearly didn't feel the same way. saying the old, cell-phone-under-the-goal-post routine is bad for the sport!

It was revolutionary at the time with a celebration that not only involved elaborate props but a premeditated setup contingent on in-game performance.

Horn, a Saints Hall of Famer who caught 50 touchdown passes for the franchise from 2000-06, will forever be remembered for his controversial 2003 touchdown celebration, which resulted in a $30,000 fine in an era when receivers such as Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson and Horn were regularly coming up with elaborate celebrations. "You gotta have fun".

The celebration was a recreation of Joe Horn's renowned effort against the Giants. But it also sparked quite an emotional reaction from Horn.

"I paid a tribute to him, tried to get the crowd going a little bit more, set the tone, have fun out there, giving people a show", Thomas said, according to ESPN.

"I think Joe Horn left it", Thomas said with a joking smile. "I felt like I had an opportunity to make it happen, put the game away and make a call". "It took a lot of courage. and I appreciate that, and I'll never forget that", Horn said.
