He's shown he can be effective. Especially in hurry-up/passing situations. Cook can't play every snap.

I think pulling starters would be a little premature. Vikings are still in it with a turnover on this drive

I didn't tottaly expect a win but I did expect much better than this... everything changed when Robison jumped offside. I was glad that we showed some life in the second half, that didn't last.

Refs have been tough on us.

Disappointing.

Going to be a tough game next week also.

this will be brutal if bradford is hurt long term. this line has a ways to go before they will be consistently effective, that's just the natural course of things given the situation.
with bradford back there they have a chance in spite of the growing pains up front .....i'd honestly rather see the rookie than keenam, but only if bradford is out for weeks.

"After further review, the receiver had both feet down and possession of the ball, but we all want to go home so the call stands."

This loss is not on Keenum. All in all, he did okay... he's slow, but he didn't do anything stupid or cost us the game.

This loss can be blamed on too many penalties and the fact that the Steelers are a pretty darned good team. They simply outplayed the Vikings on both sides of the ball.

We got the Bucs next week... no pushovers, but it's a home game and hopefully our #1 QB will be okay to play.

Lol yes cause the 1991 in my name doesn't give that away. Either way I just want the Vikings to win, I don't care about what a former great is doing in new orleans or how bad other teams in our division our doing (when they weren't supposed to do anything anyways). I just want to see a winning vikings team. Clearly I haven't been a viking fan long as most here but I can't see why anyone would be happy with this franchises history, the point is to win Superbowl right?
