ESPN (excerpt – article is long, click link for full text) There’s been a lot to talk about. How Thomas went from 32 catches for 551 yards with Tebow (and Kyle Orton) at QB last year to 94 catches for 1,434 yards with Manning this year. How thrilled he is to finally make it through a regular season without getting hurt (he says it’s the praying). And how a white teammate from the far north, Eric Decker, has become best friend to a black kid from Georgia. (“Black and Decker,” they like to call themselves.)
We here at Sportsmasher.com love a good nickname, and although this one is slightly racist towards Demaryius Thomas, he helped come up with it and it’s absolutely hilarious. Demaryius Thomas is black and Eric Decker’s last name is Decker so the nickname “Black and Decker” (after the famous tool brand) fits the pair well. These two teammates are among the best young wide receivers in the NFL and we can look forward to the combo of “Black and Decker” dominating the competition for the Denver Broncos for years to come.
