Catepillar on my tomatoes - good guys or bad guys?

Found these 2 big guys munching on my cherry tomatoes. They are about 4 inches long. Can someone ID them for me?

Well, you've already learned from your other threads w/these same pictures that that's the tobacco hornworm. Eats huge amounts of leaves. At the size it is, will soon shift into becoming an adult moth.
