Yes, I do. Did you watch the game last night? Edelman is on pace for his BEST season ever as a Patriot. Do the math. If he's been top 5 in the AFC for 5 years, and he's producing at his best rate ever, he has to be easily as good as Thielen.

Your homerism is amazing here. I kept warning you NE would contain or take out Thielen. I am not sure if that's disrespect of NE's D or what it is, but you were wrong.

Pats fans have heard the stats argument for years and then I turn on my tv and I see Edelman making key plays at key times, while Thielen is busy rehearsing childish TD celebrations instead.

Of course I've seen Thielen play. He's a really good player, but he hasn't had a better career over Edelman and still won't this year either.

Your talk is exactly why everyone gets pissed off when NE is in the title game every year and maybe the SB. You're so sick of the Pats, you see what you want to see.

For 2 decades, NE's players lack respect because BB schemes from week to week and the production is spread around, so the stats/eye popping production argument is weak.

Edelman>>Welker, but Welker produced more so. How's that sound?

Of course I'd pick Thielen over Edelman today based on age, but that's the ONLY reason I would. I mean, how insulting to a guy who has earned his spot in the league vs a guy who is just coming into his prime now.

And, honestly, I was not impressed with his maturity last night or his whining when the going got tough. Give me 11 Edelmans over 11 Thielens all day, everyday.
You talk about homerism but you’re sitting here saying not only is Edelman going to have a better career but saying he won’t this year either?? What?!!! Thielen has already done more this year than Edelman has done any year of his career. And he still has FOUR games left!! Classic patriots fan. Nobody is better than any of their players. Julian Edelman is a nobody if it wasn’t for Brady. No different than wes welker. Thielen made it on his own, with multiple different QBs. Give Edelman Keenum, Bradford or cousins and we’ll see how good Edelman really is. He’s a product of your system that would be just another slot guy anywhere else.

Go home, you’re drunk

What?

Edelman is the NFL's all time leader in punt return average for crying out loud. He's tough, clutch, and a gamer with 3 SB appearances and 2 rings.

Have you been in coma?

Some of you are the worst homers ever. WOW

Edelman has done nothing but work his butt off to convert from a college QB to a WR but it's all about Brady? Please. BB created this "system" just like Walsh created one for Montana, but that has no bearing on you trying to claim what Edelman has earned is somehow inferior to Johnny Come Lately, Thielen.

WOW

You have it backwards. The constant disrespect of NE's very good or great players, that get disrespected, never going to Pro Bowls, or being respected by the media, as dopey and immature Steelers fans, NY fans, Baltimore fans, all overrate their players, has been going on for over a decade.

Look at Ty Law. The best CB of his generation and he can't even get into the HOF. The stats get spread around in NE, but you have to look beyond stats to appreciate the consistency and quality of play, especially in big games.

lol congrats....he's a good punt returner!! Pretty sure Thielen has the same qualities (tough, clutch and a gamer). Julian Edelman clearly isnt the reason they have been to and won so many SB's. You can thank Brady and BB for that. I dont think many guys out there are more clutch than Diggs after what happened in the playoffs last year. I would take Thielen and/or Diggs any day over a slot receiver that Tom Brady made relevant. Both Diggs and Thielen made it solely on their own. Edelman would be a no-name if it wasnt for Tom Brady. No different than Welker. Look at Welker prior to NE. He had 1 TD in 3 years of being in the league and never broke 687 yards. Then he gets to NE and blows up. Look at when he left NE, back to mediocrity at best. Tom Brady made those guys. You put them on most other teams, you dont even know who they are. That's you being a homer. Not us. Ask anyone that doesnt like the Vikings or Patriots, "Who would you take in their prime with a middle of the road QB throwing to them?" Diggs, Thielen or Edelman. Guarantee you Edelman is the last one they'd pick 9 times out of 10

What's that? The Vikings fan thinks their receiver is better and the Patriots fan thinks their receiver is better? I wonder who's mind will change first!? :whistle: :lol:
