Our secondary needs to learn to kneel on interceptions in the end zone.

Dalvin Cook is doing a great job. Good hands, good blocking, good vision, hits the hole hard. He's a keeper.

Really making me forget about AD, because he is such a strong all around back.

These game threads used to average over 20 pages. :confused: :whistle:

Great game played by the Vikes today. A lot of people were saying we would need some turnovers to win. We got those but they weren't all needed. :govikes:

Speaking for myself, I wasn't on the GameDay forum today because my gamepass feed was about a minute delayed. Don't like reading what happens before I see it on the stream.

Good game!
Secondary gave up over 300 yards...Zimmer needs to tighten that up.
Hopefully we come out of the game without any injuries.

What a fun game to watch. I had a feeling this game wasn't going to be close. I think Keenum will do well next week VS DET.

Some quick thoughts

Great protection by the OL. Keenum had all day to throw today. Going deep early set the tone for the game. Keenum was awesome. He played an almost perfect game.

Great performance by the defense today. They played the run well for the 3rd straight game. Passing D gave up yards but it's expected with the game so lopsided. Waynes INT was big. Sendejo had a big game too.

Diggs and Thielen may be the best WR combo this year. Nice to see Wright get that TD

Dalvin Cook. Wow. Even with 97 yds rushing, I thought he was more dangerous as a receiver today.

This win was a more impressive win than VS the Saints IMO.

Did DET have a TO? If not, I can see the reason for the :10 run off.

On another note, it's a little disturbing there wasnt a goal line camera angle on Cooks TD for the 2nd week in a row. I thought he crossed the plane both times.

And after this game, I will continue to say that Case Keenum is easily a top 10 backup, I would even say top 5. So anyone that wanted that idiot Kaepernick can take a hike

You're calling people out indirectly. That #### gets old.

I mean at this point I don't care. I'm not going after anyone specific nor am I getting into politics but that idiot started a league wide pathetic mess. He's not good. And there is a reason he is not on an NFL squad. Keenum is a better QB. Whether people like it or not. So hopefully after that game by Keenum, this Kap talk ends. And yes, there were fans saying they wanted Kap

I agree 100%. Not only is Kap not a good QB, even a 3rd string (the NFL teams have all shown this by not having him on their team). People had mentioned it before on this forum, and imo, its a move that would be getting us moving backward, not forwards. Plus his hatred for a country that has given him so much, makes me sick to my stomach.

The game was great, even though I could only watch it in parts. Keenum is still the Buc's worst nightmare. Winston is 0-3 against him.

The Oline looked real good in pass protection. Case must have watched himself and corrected a few things. Having an extra second or 2 can do wonders for a QB.

Cook is the real deal. Once he calms down a bit, I think he will be the best receiving RB in the NFL, as well as a top notch blocker. I already think hes one of the best runners, thats why I wanted him so bad in the offseason. He lacks that extra gear AD had, but then, so do most RBs in the game.

How do the Pats and Packers keep pulling off wins. You just cant count Brady and Erin out of any game where theres still time.

i certainly didn't see multiple people wanting kaepernick...and if you've been reading 'all this kaepernick talk' it certainly hasn't been here.
The talk has been about what the options are at QB given the possibilty that both Sam and Teddy may not pan out.
I threw out the question, 'would you sign kaepernickl" ,as a conversation starter. Honestly, there were more people who didn't understand the question (which is partially my fear about this organization) than any rallying for kaepernick.
Keenum may be a viable starter in this league. His NFL career arc is similar to Sloter's college one in terms of getting a fair shot.
I am taking a different look at him now.
Maybe this is Keenum's big shot...it's not hard to look bad for the Fisher coached Rams.
Kaepernick's activism is interesting. I'm actually glad to see the NFL take a stand in solidarity for free expression. Maybe it will help their own cause come collective bargaining time?
