The only gripe so far with Cousins is his fumbling, so holding onto the ball too much and not feeling the pressure when he's in the pocket. Other than that dud in Buffalo, he's been great. You also have to remember that it generally takes a while for an offense with a new QB to get ramped up and if the Vikings ramp up from here, the sky is seriously the limit.

I feel confident if the Vikings find themselves in a shootout and haven't felt that way since '09. I think Kirk is the real deal. And keep in mind, he's doing this without the running game showing up yet. I'm taking the optimistic route on this topic. I'm excited to see where he takes this offense/team.

great point about the running game. the dude has just under 1700 yards, 11 td's and only 2 picks this year. playing behind a lousy o-line and a non-existent run game. my only concern is if he can keep this up for the 3 months...

The OL has not been bad in pass protection in my opinion. They have been respectable, and nearly all the disastrous plays have been squarely on Kirk not stepping into the void. When you drop back to pass 50 times a game, its hard to keep a DL at zero pressure. The running game has not been good, although Murray's plodding, meandering attempts to find a hole and get going contribute to that as well. I'd really like to see Boone and Thomas get the lions share of the action until Cook is fully healed. Murray is just a dud unless he gets going North South immediately and finds a gaping hole.

Case Keenum has now had an INT in every game with the Broncos. FYI

Ive watched a lot of the games Case has played in and Keenum has been very inaccurate
