Thresh is a bigger threat than blitz 90% of the time and one of the few times blitz is better when there's alot of champions that rely on Abilities on the enemy team, Blitz ults and they are temporarily out of abilities.

Blitz received three significant nerfs in a row. During Elise's patch, he lost base health and health per level. In Thresh's patch, his passive received a 50% increased Cooldown. When Annie's Visual Update came out, Blitz's base mana was reduced from 300 to 240 and the mana cost of Rocket Grab went from 110 to 120. Which was the biggest nerf and the effective nail in his coffin.

Blitz can Q twice in lane and then he is OoM. His level 6 combo requires 85% of his mana bar; he'll go from full to 70 after using it, which isn't enough to Q again afterwards.

Meanwhile, Thresh's Q costs less mana, has a lower cooldown, and Thresh has a larger starting mana pool. Nevermind that he has better utility in pretty much every ability.

Blitz basically is not a support champion because Thresh exists. Thresh does everything Blitz wants to do but better, and it's not like you can really take Blitz to another lane with his lack of ranged poke or built in sustain. And besides that, even if Thresh is banned you're probably not going to pick Blitz because you can hook twice in lane and then you're a siege minion.
