Vikings’ OC Shurmur dials up another gem vs. Washington

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has put his backup quarterback in a position to succeed all season. Sunday’s 38-30 win over Washington may have been his best work.

Keenum may have thrown two ill-advised interceptions late in the game that nearly allowed Washington to come back, but for the first three quarters, the Vikings scored at will on the back of Shurmur’s play-calling and creativity.

Exhibit A:

The Vikings opened up the game with two runs by Latavius Murray, including a 14-yard scamper, then with two tight ends in the game, they turned to play-action. The safety in the middle of the field couldn’t get over to help Josh Norman and Stefon Diggs was left wide open for a 51-yard gain.

Shurmur’s creativity was on display again at the goal line late in the half. Tight end David Morgan appeared to block, then drifted out into the end zone wide open for Keenum’s fourth touchdown.

The Vikings consistently manipulate their personnel to find advantages. On the same drive, Shurmur moved left tackle Riley Reiff to the right side to form an unbalanced line, then handed the ball to Latavius Murray toward that side for a 13-yard gain.

All in all, the Vikings’ offense finished with 406 yards, 5-for-5 in the red zone and 8-for-12 on third downs.

Creative offensive gameplans have become the norm in Minnesota – a big change from the last three years. The Vikings entered Sunday’s game 13th in the league in yards and 13th in points. That’s despite losing the starting quarterback and top running back.  Those rankings will go up after this week.

    I dont think that anyone thinks higher of Shurmur than I do ~ I been calling his name since Zimmer fired this long time friend who seem to be coaching in hope that Zimmer would be fired so old Norv could move up to HC while bumping his kid up from QB coach to OC ~
    That being said Mr. Coller did you read what you wrote ~ ??? Shurmur has been putting his backup QB in a position to succeed all season ~ Who do you think threw that 51 pass to Diggs ~ ??? And it wasn’t the only great pass Case threw on the day ~ And last I heard per NFL Network the Vikings are still leading the NFL in big plays ~
    What you couldn’t find it in yourself to say Pat Shurmur has put Case Keenum in a position to succeed all season. It doesn’t fit your Teddy Only mentality now does it ~ Sometimes your very good Mr. Coller and other times your a big old Teddy Only Fan ~ Damn the win or how badly the defense has played at times this year ~ You think a change at QB would fix everything ~
    Let’s let Zimmer and Shurmur decide if and when a QB change is needed and who the backup QB is ~ While you work on the facts at hand ~ Like using the name of the guy who has been running Shurmur offense so well and that Case Keenum is his name ~ I know it hurts ~ Almost like someone making you scream Uncle ~

      Case threw some nice deep balls yesterday did he not? Give the guy some credit Mathew.

      • Gordon Guffey

        He has been doing a great job of this all year too David ~ Yet the media gives him no credit ~ The lack of the deep ball is the one thing Teddy lacked in his first two years ~ Its not that he can’t throw it deep ~ He has never been able to get it close enough for the WR to catch it ~

        The Vikings at this time lead the NFL in big plays per NFL Network ~ Thats got to cunt for something when your thinking about when your picking your starting QB ~

      • Gordon Guffey

        Yes he did throw some nice deep balls and based of O remember from Teddy this is something that wasn’t one of his strong points ~ But some what to over look this fact ~
        Case is the #3 QB on the ESPN QB board ~
