Being hit as he threw it had a little something to do with that INT too (edit: oops—I see you already responded to a comment about that). We can't expect perfection at the position. An aggressive style can occasionally result in turnovers but it's also how big plays get made. It's not as if Keenum was a turnover machine last year. Better to have a QB who tries to make plays, attacks the end zone, etc, than a QB who's so willing to play it safe that the team misses scoring opportunities or settles for too many FGs. Overly safe football is ultimately losing football.808vikingsfan wrote:His 'aggressive style' was the turning point in the Championship game (IMO of course). That first INT he threw was late, into triple coverage, and off target.
When I read what Cliff posted, I immediately thought Case did not fit. 3 most important attributes: Decision making, timing and accuracy. Case is a gunslinger. He will always have that mentality. Some people like that. I'm pretty sure Zimmer doesn't. That's why he'd rather go with someone else I believe.
You may be right. I think he's an inherently conservative head coach and I feel that's going to make it even more difficult for him to win a Super Bowl.
I think they need a QB who makes plays even when they aren't needed. I hate the "let's just try to keep it close and hope we can put together a winning drive at the end" mentality. The heck with that. Field an aggressive offense that puts up enough points to make that sort of late game drama unnecessary as often as possible!What the Vikings need is an accurate passer, doesn't take unnecessary risks, and can make plays when needed.
