From practice and this game reports, he's better run blocking and perhaps not as consistently terrible pass blocking (but still bad).

Sigh.

Phil, where are you????

Same old O-line, Bradfords had one clean pocket to throw from all night, dunno what ppl expect from him. Bills running all over us, they're the best running team in the league however I was hoping our defense would show something.

The offense is uugggllly. The defense may be starting to break down. The Bills seem to run pretty much at will and they're starting to bite on the fake.

I like this new score then immediately to kick off idea. That whole TD > commercial > touch back > commercial formula was getting old.

Bradford out. Thankfully. No need to kill him in the preseason. Wait until week one before we carry out the death sentence. Give him some time to think about it like a death row inmate.

Checkdown Sammy goes out and Keenum immediately takes a shot downfield and gets the PI call. Tough to get those PI calls when you're checking down or running screens.

After they declined the delay of game I would have called a fake punt lol. We were at the 37 and it's preseason, what's there to lose?

And why would Keenum go with #7? C'mon man, nobody in Vikings land wants to see another QB wear #7 after the last 2 guys who wore it.

Concerned about pass blocking and run-defense. Sounds familiar.

Same old Vikings, so sad for a new seasons, and the same problems. They cant run, and cant stop the run.

We can never seem to stop Tolbert no matter what team he plays for. The human bowling ball.

And the defense still can't pull down those INT's either. 2nd one we've missed already.
