Thielen is THE MAN

Post by ChicagoViking » Sun Oct 07, 2018 11:30 pm

First player since the merger to have five 100+ yard receiving games to start an NFL season. Kudos to our homegrown stud.

Loved how he corralled that onside kick to seal the game as well . . . .

I don't see him slowing down anytime soon
Cousins has great chemistry with him and Diggs. I think both will go over 1,500 yards easy. Especially if the running game doesn't pick up soon.

I would not be surprised if he and his agent holds out next season. What he is being paid is criminal.

He's going to get taken care of this off-season.

Our WR Duo is the heart of our offense right now. They are a legitimate match up issue for any opposing defense. It really feels like a defense will need two legit #1 CB to contain these guys, and even then it is crap shoot. They get open and do it consistently.

I've been hard on DeFelippo so far this season, but there is no reason to be unhappy with what is happening with the passing game.

Thielen is a legitimate top 5 WR in the NFL this season.

Diggs is having a great year too, but what Thielen is doing is special.

Thielen is currently on pace to break the elusive 2000 yard receiving season. If he were to play every game from now and gain at least 110 yards, he would smash the record with ease.

No way they can let him go but where does the cap room come from?

They'll find it, probably by cutting Remmers

What happens if they cut Everson Griffen? Would that result in a net gain or loss for the cap?
