Any believers in Case in Green Bay in the nighttime game where it will be 10 degrees with 10-15mph winds this week?

 

I've been rolling with Case for the last 5 weeks and he hasn't disappointed but I did grab Bortles as insurance.  If it's really cold/windy then i'd be concerned they run the ball a lot more than they would normally.  Hard to go against Keenum the way he's been throwing though.

minus 5 wind/chill conditions ... and how much offense is Green Bay gonna generate with Adams (Hundley's favorite) likely sidelined?

 

shades of last week's game script vs Cincy - better hope Case does it early and often, because that cue can go in the rack early, and we may see Teddy again in mop up duty.

Exactly what I am saying to people trying to decide between Keenum and other guys like Foles/Bortles.

17 deprees in GB tonight.   Anyone concerned about the weather for Keenum?

I don't think so.  Green Bay's secondary has been down right awful, but it could be a lower scoring game as the Pack might not score enough.

Nope. Green Bay is getting absolutely blasted. Check out the Game Logs.

 

No Davante Adams and no Rodgers? Rhodes on Jordy? Brett Hundley. This is going to get UGLY.

 

I pray Thielen doesn’t go off and put me down 30 after one player.

Haven't agonized over a QB decision like this in quite some time.  So many positives to this matchup, but the weather and game script possibilities are clouding the situation.

 

Same here. Think I’m just rolling with Keenum though. If it’s a blowout I’m hoping Keenum already got his.

Saturday’s cold will be new experience for Vikings QB Case Keenum

“I’m going to have a plan, as far as what I’m going to wear, but other than that it’s football; it’s cold for everybody,” Keenum said Thursday. “We’ve got to go out and execute.”

The high temperature for Green Bay, Wis., is forecast to be 19 degrees on Saturday, but according to weather.com, it could be minus-1 Fahrenheit by the time the game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at Lambeau Field,

 

Asked Thursday how many below-zero games he’s played in, Keenum said, “None.”

And the coldest game he’s ever played in?

 

“Seattle,” he said. “It was snowing that game.”

 

That was Dec. 27, 2015, and Keenum completed 14 of 23 passes for 103 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown to Kenny Britt, in a 23-17 Rams victory. Game-time temperature: 37 degrees. In a 24-3 loss in Seattle last season, Keenum was 0 for 2 in relief of Jared Goff. It was 36 degrees at kickoff.

 

“Throwing, it’s fine, you just have to keep your hands as warm as you can,” Keenum said. “But it’s football, it’s about mechanics, throwing and catching, having good feet and making the right decisions.”
