The interesting thing about Case and his arm is through 8 1/2 games played he has 4 completions of 41 + through the air. He's 4/6.

Sam in his one game this year and all of last year = 0.
Cassel, Hill, Freeman didn't have any.
Teddy had one in 2014.
Christian Ponder had 1 in 2013, and 2 in 2012 and 1 in 2011.

6 years and 6 QB's to get one up on Case and his part year...

(if espn splits are accurate)

Case sure does spread the ball around. Actually a Floyd sighting.

My $0.02:

Great team win! All the media bitches talked up LAR and had them winning. **** 'em. I hope they stay off our bandwagon for the rest of the season.

The OL played pretty well. I am not an expert, but I would guess this was Elf's worst game. He seemed late on a few blocks and got handled a few times.

Case was close to taking a sack a number of times, but showed great pocket awareness.

Thielen was a boss!!!

Props to Rudolph, too! He was great in blocking and had a huge catch.

Harris had the play of the game.

The TFL by Newman were fantastic!

Totally shut down Gurley! Our run D has really improved since last year.

Loved the call to go for it on 4th and 1.

Keenum killed them when they blitzed.

The refs were horrible. Their OL held all day long, especially Saffold. There was a late hit on Kendricks OB that was not called. The non-PI call on Thielen in the EZ was crap. Guy made contact and never turned to look for the ball. The block in the back when Thielen basically fell into the guy. There were others, too...

The drive for the last FG was wonderful. Milked tons of time, and finsihed it with KF getting his groove back on. Great coaching.

Barr got the flag for the helmet to the chest. I didn't like it, but see why they flagged it.

Dominated in the 2nd half. Was really great to watch.

Can't say enough of how well these guys play as a team.

A thing about Keenum that gets overlooked is his ability to convert 3rd downs.

Being able to escape the rush and buy time really breaks a defenses back.

He's no check down Charlie and throws the ball passed the sticks.

If we give Case time to throw every week, gonna be hard to beat. Hope we came away with few serious injuries.

Rudy has a great play to stop an interception that was critical at the time

The amount of depth we have is remarkable. I can't remember a Vikings team that had this many solid back-ups ready to fill in with virtually no drop off. Yesterday's prime example was Harris coming in for Sandejo and having a huge game defensively. We've seen Rhodes come off for some plays, and the coverage doesn't drop off. OL miss a few plays or a game, and the subs don't give up sacks and still open running lanes. In a league where a few key injuries can completely derail a team's chances, the Vikings have endured their own (QB, RB) yet keep racking up the wins. Says a lot about this roster and the coaching.

As mentioned earlier, his pocket awareness and decision making has been great

Except for the 2 interceptions against Washington


I am slowly becoming a headcase.

I've had previous doubts about Rudolph, but he really showed up yesterday and played a stellar game. I still think we need to develop other TEs, but Rudy is playing good.

PS...forgot to give them props. Our RB played very well yesterday. Nice power with LM and patience with JM. They had a very solid game.

The wildcat with LM was a bad call. I don't like it with JM, and sure don't like it with LM. Waste of a down...

Kind of got the feeling that Teddy was wowing them in practice, and here’s your evidence.

But I’m also appreciating the hell out of what Case is doing.

Doc I’m also sliding towards being about 1/4 HeadCase...

His throw to Rudolph down the seam was Bradfordesque-

Adam Thielen has some of the best hands for a WR in the league IMO. The guy seems to be able to hold onto anything that touches his fingers. At this point I don't think I would trade him for another WR in the NFL. The ability to catch anything gives the QB so much confidence.

Case is doing awesome.

I am not excited about signing Teddy or Case for crazy QB money because I don't think either has earned it. Of course there is a lot of season left and one way or another a lot of questions will get answered.

I don't get worried when the Vikings give up the early score, they seem to make adjustments quickly on the defensive side of the ball and learn from early mistakes.

All I see on these shows is quite a bit of the same as last week. The Saints are still the darlings, and I love it..

The media is having a harder time getting over their past perceptions of Case Keenum then the TedHeads..

I hope they "underestimate" us all the way to the Super Bowl. I'm fine with that.

If Bradford gets healthy do you still sit him for Case?

Was anyone watching that GB game? I want to know if they started booing and leaving early. Tell me they did even if they didn't.

Anthony Harris looked good out there.
I think he'll play again Thursday with the short week.
Let Sendejo have the extra time to heal.
Hill played well for Remmers. Under the radar move by Spielman.
Little things like depth are really big things.

Playoff game? Probably not.

However, hypothetically if Case reverts, Teddy comes in and is ineffective. We sneak into playoffs with largely poor QB play, then yes.

Pretty much worst case scenario.
