Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins didn’t seem overly happy with his teammate Adam Thielen during a Sunday loss to the Chicago Bears.
Cousins, who signed an $84 million deal with Minnesota in the offseason, was caught by the broadcast cameras speaking with Thielen, and he looked heated to say the least. (RELATED: Kirk Cousins Expected To Sign Three Year Fully Guaranteed Deal With The Vikings)
It’s not clear what is being said, but the Vikings gunslinger looked upset with the routes Thielen was running. You can watch the wild video below.

Well, it’s not hard to understand why tempers boiled over. The Vikings paid a fortune to Cousins, were supposed to be a great team this year and now they’ll be watching the postseason from their couches.
This past year was incredibly disappointing on every level for Minnesota. That’s pretty much a surefire way for little things to blow up.

Thielen is also one of the best players at his position in the league. I’m sure he wasn’t happy with getting a lecture on national television.
I don’t know how Minnesota fixes all their problems, but something has to be done. You can’t fork over millions and millions of dollars to a quarterback in free agency, and then not make the playoffs. It just can’t happen.
Hopefully, Thielen and Cousins get it figured out because major changes will be coming down the pipeline if there’s another season in Minnesota like the one we just saw.
