Adam Thielen Is Still Getting Dragged For Arguably The Lamest TD Celebration Of The NFL Season
Vikings star wide receiver Adam Theilen had one of his least productive games of the season on Sunday in a 24-10 loss to the New England Patriots. The 28-year-old Pro Bowler caught five balls for just 28 yards, marking his second-lowest yardage total all season (Thielen had 22 receiving yards in a Week 9 win over Detroit).
One of the personal bright spots for Thielen was a second quarter touchdown reception right before halftime, his eighth touchdown reception in the last nine games. That touchdown was immediately smeared by one of the more half-assed, poorly executed touchdown celebrations of the NFL season.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: a game of pickle. Or something.
A few problems with this celebration:
1.) It’s played out.
2.) Dalvin Cook has obviously never played pickle in his life. That’s not how you throw a baseball.
3.) Thielen touched the ball, and as a baserunner, would be called out.
4.) I’ve spent more time studying for a pass/fail test in Theater class than these three did concocting this abomination.
Some funny reactions:
In Adam’s defense, when you have nine touchdowns on the season, you start to run out of good ideas.
