That's not even on Remmers. Keenum is not stepping into the pocket. He just keeps running backwards

Week 1 Offense: All kinds of awesome!
Week 2 Offense: LOL

Two penalties are the difference so far, but this offensive line still sucks, Keenum has no chance. Good thing Bradford isn't playing or they'd finish screwing up his knee.

For a backup, Robison sure gets a lot of snaps.

Keenum is the variable... he's hesitating and his reads are slow. Sam gets rid of the ball as soon as he sees his man and makes a quick read. Sam also knows how to use the pocket... Keenum is backpedaling. Hard to throw well on your heels.

Sam got rid of the ball quickly last year, last week he had all day. Last year the team sucked, last week they didn't.

Yes they miss Sam, but they'd still be struggling with the pressure.

Hard to say. If the passing game was successful early on, it might have opened up the running game. Vikings have been in a lot of poor situations too

Whoever is the WR scout for the Steelers should be making buckets of money. Brown, Bryant, and Smith were all late picks. Still pisses me off we didn't get Bryant.

Thought Cook was a good receiving back, though the first two games he has hands of stone.

Great series by the defense.

Special teams, not so much. Costly mistakes.

All these stupid penalties, and from vets no less, is unacceptable.

Lol another ridiculous over reaction by you. Have shut down pitts offense since those two touchdowns and have to start a backup QB but yeah this is the "real Vikings". :roll:
