Vikings are #1 in passing attempts so far. Dead last in rushing attempts.
If a team is behind, naturally you'll have more pass pressures. If I'm not mistaken, the Vikings have held the lead in only one game so far. Get the lead, this stat will take care of itself.
Yeah that's why we are dead last in pressures. We were in a shootout last week and gave up 29 pressures. 29. Take off the shades brother.

Haven't watched the last two games yet. Cousins ranks in the middle in time to throw at 2.69s. Is he holding on to the ball too long to generate a pressure?

Agree on most points, but ST? We lost to GB due to a blocked punt for a TD and 3! missed FGs. That's an F for me.

All of the units have been an "F" in one game this year.

GB: ST
BUF: OFF
LAR: DEF

Not sure how you rate the secondary anything above a "D-", they are the biggest issue on the team right now.

I'm less concerned about the rushing attack right now. IMO, the Defense is as much a reason for the bad rushing numbers as anything the offense has done. Against both GB and LAR they were failing to make significant stops, resulting in a need to pass. Against BUF we were down by 4 scores at Halftime. Another situation that depresses rushing attempts.

Fix the Defense and the Rushing stats will improve.

Plus the lapses like flipping a live ball to the official on kickoffs. Not to mention LA came REAL close to blocking at least one punt, maybe two.

Keep in mind that the almost blocked punt in that game was due to Morgan being the snapper and they moved the punter 2 yards closer to make it easier for Morgan to snap the ball.
If anything that should rather be a feather in their cap (that it wasn't blocked).
