"As Vikings fans continue to bask in the afterglow of the best game of quarterback Sam Bradford‘s career, here’s a splash of cold water: Bradford was limited in practice on Wednesday with a knee injury
The injury report doesn’t specify whether it’s a left or right knee injury. He torn the ACL in his left knee in 2013 and again in 2014.
Less than 48 hours removed from Monday night’s masterpiece, it’s hard at this point to reach any conclusions regarding whether Bradford will or won’t play when the Vikings travel to Pittsburgh on Sunday. If for some reason he can’t play, it will be the Case Keenum show"

Bridgewater is on the PUP list.

Still recovering from last year's injury.

This might be bad news.

Haley might assume if Keenum goes that he can call another conservative, close to the vest game.

Sacks and pressures early will make this a hell of a lot easier. After a few hits he will ho i to self preservation mode.

Um...no.

Bradford was indeed on the Vikings' injury report yesterday.

Not Bradford I'm concerned with. Dalvin Cook? Whole other story. Cook will run over this softass defense. Color me a skeptic till this defense can get off the field on 3rd downs. Which coincidentally, looks like a very efficient part of the Viking offense.

Of course. That is true. Standard disclosure

The pft article is steeped in drama

Bradford isn't really hurt

Steeped in drama does not equal "fraudulent". It's simply "steeped in drama".

And we do not yet know whether Bradford is hurt or not.

Dalvin Cook will do nothing vs this D if Dupree plays and will be a minor story if Chickillo plays. Even without Tuitt. With a fully healthy Steelers D he'd be a total non-factor.

This is reason shazier is here. To be able to go sideline to sideline, to pick up backs in the short game, and speedy back out of the backfield.

We have the right D in place for the most part.

Btw I'm in the midst of rewatching browns and Haden is going prove to be an excellent pickup. Lots of people go to that one double move play and that was sort of bad-- not atrocious but on the bad side. But thing is the browns didn't target until more the halfway through the 3rd Q. Keizer looked at the right side of the field ONCE the first half.

That's the kind of respect and know how Haden brings. Of course he'll have to prove it in upcoming games. But for far too long our corners we're just getting picked on over on the right side. I mean just toyed with.

Dupree only plays about 50% of the games in a season. It's basically a coin flip as to whether he'll play any given game. Good news is, he's already missed one this year. Odds are favorable for game two.

Read on Twitter that he gave up the most yards of any CB last week though I don't know if that's reliable or not.

What are you basing this on? I totally disagree.

Chickillo let a back break a tackle last week, now he sucks against the run. Also, Dupree is faster navigating an obstacle course, hence, he's better in coverage.

Couple things. By my reckoning Haden gave up 3 completions for around 90 yards. Seems eye popping but really it's not. Browns made way more hay on the left side and even center of the field.

To me a great example is that play gay got flagged for hit. There's two wide outs Haden's side. Mitchell drops a bit. Play is designed to go that way. Kizer looks right and two seconds he knows he's going the other way. There's something about Haden's position on that play that basically said don't do it.

I know the narrative out there is of a washed up overpaid vet who is going to get exposed. But not every play is a foot race. Sometimes the main thing you have to do is be in the right spot and diagnosed correctly. And this is something the Steelers of surly lock for a long time

Sounds accurate

Dupree was our best coverage LB down the stretch last year, including Timmons and Shazier. The cones have nothing to do with that. Chickillo, in contrast, is kinda lost in coverage and was washed out on a few runs.

Barry, I am basing this opinion on the fact that I have seen this movie many times: RBs who take a step to get going haven't done shit against the Steelers at Heinz in a generation. Cook's top end is pretty great, but the Steelers are a whole lot more disciplined vs the run than the Saints. We'll penetrate in the middle and stretch out those runs to the sideline, like we always do-- likely at the expense of giving up occasional big yards in pass game on early downs.
