PFF has named Vikings Special teams #1 dbana ddbana of 32 teams and gave prompts to LB Kendralls,  FB C.J. Ham, LB Gedeon, KR Sherels  who have combined for 24 tackles and only 2 missed tackles. The Redskins are ranked 31st  !!!! hmm1

 What QB Keenum has done for Vikings, is nothing short of a miracle and just look around league, to what happened when starter went down. The Viking season would be over if it had not been for QB Keenums  mobility and ability to guide offense down the field and yes , OC Shurmur calls the plays , but you need a QB who can run them It is all great that QB Bridgewater is making great progress, but I live for now and not the maybe ( Bridgewater starts). All I am saying is stop the naming of starting QB on weekly basis and name Keenum as leader of offense, he has earned it and nobody can excel with having to look over their back, Geez !!!  2c

I concur thank you all Vets for all you have done for us.  The Redskins game is very big, we have won some of late, the strongest  team we faced lost the best QB playing today pretty early in the game. I hate the Cowboys and Eagles, like the Redskins except tomorrow go Vikes go big D   
PAGE NAMED NFLS MVP — In 1971 Alan Page became the first defensive player to be named the Most Valuable Player of the National Football League by the Associated Press. Page headed a Vikings defense that held opponents to fewer than 10 points a game.

The  Viking Dynamic Duo of WR'S Theilen and Diggs combined for 244 yards/2TD'S, Theilen (166 yds,1TD) - Diggs (78 yds, 1TD) and WR Wright and TE Rudolph made crucial catches as well. Go Vikings  !!! perfect10

The behavior of Viking HC Zimmer is troubling and we all know how much he cares about Bridgewater, this will lead to disaster if HC thinks someone  who hasn't played in almost 2 years can come in and play  uwish. This disrespect to a QB who has kept us out of the cellar is not warranted. NFL Network, ESPN and others are dumfounded about Viking HC basically causing a QB controversy. As Deion Sanders put it " why fix what is not broke "!!!! >:(

I am a strong believer in the KISS (keep it simple stupid) principle. Keenum is playing very well, but Bridgewater is our franchise QB, so I am unsure which is the best path to take on who should be playing. We do need to get Bridgewater into the mix but at this point of the season it makes it difficult and the longer we wait, the more difficult a decision it will be. I wish the Vikings would extend Keenum's contract a couple more years (it might be too late since his performance will definitely demand more money). What ever decision is made, I am content with this coaching staff to do the right thing. JMO

Dang it Tushay, you make a lot of sense and I too just want what is best for Viking success to continue  and I agree Vikings would be wise to resign Keenum. Go Vikings !!!!  grin1

I too think the Vikings should sign Keenum to a 2 year extension. Around $7 million a year with escalators should be enough. I want to see them test Teddy 2 Gloves to see if he should be signed, but with the job Keenum is doing the Vikes will need to be way ahead or way behind for teddy to see the field.

ESPN asked ? of who should start at QB for Vikings QB Keenum 73% - Bridgewater 27% and while we all like Bridgewater, this is not the time to experiment. Go Vikings !!!! grin1

I have to weigh in on a comment by a so called sports analyst and said " Viking are a good team, despite not having All stars" and to that I say " Really, maybe us Vikings do not have over priced players like Cousins who next year will command asking price of 30 million a year yeahright and how about Bortles and Luck, lets not forget Flacco who after signing huge contract has drifted to obscurity. Aw yes the Big names will give you one thing, its call "bankruptcy "  and I will stick with Blue collar type players like Vikings have. Who appreciate what has been given to them and earned, plus the love of Football. Old school. Go Vikings !!!  wagfing

I did some research on Viking and Ram victories and rank of teams in passing and run defenses.
                              Vikings vs Browns - Run ( 3rd) - Pass -(16th)..... Rams vs Colts - run - (26) - pass - (32nd)
                                              Bears -  ........(15th) - ........(8th)...................49ers _ .......(32nd) - ......(30th)           
                                               GB - ............(18th) - ........(17th)..................Cardinals - ..(7th) - ........(21st)
                                              TB - .............(14th) - .........(27th).................Giants  - ......(30th)- .......(28th)
                                           Redskins - .......( 13th) - ........(17th) .................Texans - ......(14th) - ......(27th)
                                            Saints - ..........(16th) - .........(5th) ...................Jaguars - .....(23rd)..........(1)
                                           Ravens - .........(27th) - ......... (2nd)....................Cowboys......(11th).........(14th)
           After looking at Rams opponents at ranking !!!!    hmm1

On any other NFL team , QB Keenum would have been named starter and that would have ended any speculation of " who will start week in,  week out." I applaud QB Keenum for his resilience and mental toughness and despite  saving Vikings season. Our HC continues with the ungratifying attitude to our QB Keenum. The environment our HC is creating at most important time for Vikings is unnecessary and as one sports analyst put it " Do not out smart yourself HC Zimmer" !!!! wagfing
