he chokes in clutch time. damm right it was his fault.

Okay. Jared Goff choked in the Superbowl this past year. Is he no good then?

Peyton Manning, though far superior to Cousins and Goff, was considered a choker for a long time too.

Edit: I don't want to get this thread any further derailed. I'm glad Thielen got his money and I hope he retires as a Viking.

Quite honestly, he still might be underpaid. He’s a stud and one of the most under appreciated players today. There is still a good percentage of football fans who think that Diggs is better. It’s bonkers. There is also a large percentage that wouldn’t have I’m as a top 10 WR...which is also bonkers.

They’re building their team through the WR position? Lol 

overpay. Slot guys are dime a dozen.

Thielen is a slot guy as much as Keenan Allen is just a slot guy.

Jared Goff is in year 3 and makes 200% less money than Cousins whose a god damm seasoned veteran and makes more mistakes and TO's than Goff.

As a Viking he and Goff had virtually the same season. Goff has more talent on the offensive line and in the backfield. We'll see how Cousins does this season with hopefully and improved offensive line and an offensive coordinator that gives Cook the football.

Good move here for the Vikings. Thelen's one of the better WR's in the league.

Goff had 2 more picks in 45 less attempts last year and Goff led the league in fumbles so... okay.

Where would you guys rank Thielen when it comes to receivers around the league?  Top 5, top 10, top 15, etc?

He kind of reminds me of Keenan Allen in some ways.

Somewhere between 9 and 15 probably.

Honestly, I love watching Thielen and Diggs play.  Two exceptional receivers.  If they had a good QB, they would be a great team. 

It's funny because I could have sworn it was Kirk Cousins throwing most of those passes to Theilen in that highlight video.  There were a lot of excellent throws in that video as well as great catches.

Not much to dislike with this one, other than he's not signing with the Rams xD He's a top player!

I'm not sure how to say it.  He's like a average-ish QB.  I think Alex Smith is better than him, and Smith seems like a good/average QB.

They're the same caliber player just vastly different playstyles.
