    I almost think with the short week after, waiting until Thanksgiving to start Teddy would be almost predestined (as thankful as he was yesterday just to be in uniform and active with his teammates, imagine when he's taking the field). That way he's not coming off his first game action in 2 yrs on only 3 days recovery time.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Love the fight from the Vikes today in all three phases. I think its always tough when the opposing team plays with a win at all cost attitude and goes for 4th down the entire game.


    Hope We can get Griffin, Rhodes, and Remmers back healthy next week and keep this train rollin against LA.

    Keenum is a fantastic back up, he is better than a lot of teams whom have only back up quality qbs to rely on. Does that make him a starter quality qb? Hmmm, maybe, maybe we hold qbs to too high of standards. Either way, Keenum is a great back up-mediocre starter. Bridge water is a quality starter. When he is ready, he is our qb. Little to no doubt about that.

    Opinion based on your own personal beliefs. Facts prove otherwise, besides, how can you build around a player that is held together by chewing gum and duck tape?

    Arm talent alone Sam is one of the best in the league. But if you want to win games Case easily is better then Sam and I think we know why. Our OL is better no doubt but Case is taking a sack 1.9% compared to 10% for Sam (limited time obviously but its been like this for Sam in his entire career). It's not like our OL is great, they are still average but Case is making them look really good.

    I completely agree. Our line is no doubt much improved, but I think Case is helping them out a ton with his ability to move around and get the ball out quick.

    My only issue with waiting till the Thanksgiving game is that the Lions game is arguably a much more important game than the Rams.

    Of course the Vikings want to win against the Rams and continue climbing in the NFC but the game against the Lions has bigger NFC North division implications. I would rather start Teddy at home and make sure he is able against the Rams than a game that could secure the NFC North on the road.

    Really no situation is ideal this late in the Season but I would rather see him trott out in front of the home crowd then in hostile territory. IF Teddy starts against the Rams and struggles, it may make sense to bring Case back in on the short week vs Lions. But that wouldn't be ideal if they start swapping back and forth.

    I trust the coaches to make the right decision at this point.

    Exactly, get Teddy out in front of his home crowd and see if hes still got some magic. Also, part of me feels that Case is producing well because of the offensive scheme. Shurmur seems to be a fantastic OC. If you look at Case's career numbers, this year is an anomaly. Still, as long as we keep winning, things are looking up!
    Catch 22: run or pass, you're screwed either way!

    He is only producing cause he is in a good offense with good players around him.

    I have to give it to Shurmer too, I wasn't overly hyped about him. I feel like I always could predict norv's plays as could many others and it was so conservative (not to mention not realizing our weaknesses like oline and changing/adjusting a ton imo).

    This offense has a totally different feel to it, don't know what is coming next. You can point to that individual play at the goal line passing to morgan as just an idea of being a little creative. Just an excellent overall job of mixing things up and finding ways to get all our guys open in space. Oline is probably helped out when the dline isn't quite sure if it's run/pass and what they have to be doing etc.

    Still somewhat predictable, every 2nd down is a run up the middle.

    Honestly, I think our most predictable play is the PA rollout quick pass to Rudy in the flat. That's why that play almost got pick 6ed on Sunday. But otherwise, our offense is a ton of fun to watch.
