By his standards, Michael Thomas had a quiet game Monday night against the Redskins, making four catches for 74 yards. 

But he certainly left a strong impression on Washington's secondary, and the trash talking didn't stop when the final whistle sounded on the Saints 43-19 destruction of the Redskins. 

After the game, Redskins defenders accused Thomas of taking cheap shots and going too far with his trash talk. (Warning: tweets contain some strong language)

Quinton Dunbar and the #Redskins DB's were NOT happy with #Saints WR Michael Thomas. Here's what Dunbar had to say after the game.

Corner Josh Norman said of Thomas: "That guy. Oh my gosh. That guy. To speak on him, I will not waste my breath. I'm sorry. I will not. He's not worthy of it. He never will be worthy of it."

Thomas took to Twitter and continued to berate the Redskins secondary, particularly Josh Norman, who was benched to start the second half. 

We send shots, we just send them on time goofy. ----‍♂️--

Norman felt the need to respond to Thomas, and the Twitter war was on. Norman subsequently deleted his tweets.

The Junkies blasted Norman for his "terrible" performance Tuesday morning, John "Cakes" Auville saying: "Whatever they're paying him, they're clearly not getting their money's worth."

Eric Bickel called his Twitter fight with Thomas "embarrassing," Jason Bishop adding, "Josh Norman needs to shut up. He just needs to shut up."
