    Default Why Case Keenum May Turn Out To Be The Steal Of The Century......

    Case Keenum did not know he was going to start for the Vikings last year. He started off slowly.

    Case Keenums progression under the circumstances of changing teams 6......yes 6......times out of 7 years is amazing considering what we understand of todays complex offenses.

    Im not going to do the all the hard work for you but I'll share a very encouraging bit of news about Keenum.....but check out the career stats of some great NFL passers in this league on your own below and their progression as NFL quarterbacks as compared to Case.

    Interesting: Minnesota's bye week was week 9...same as the Patriots. There were 8 games left in the season starting week 10 for both.

    Over the last 8 games of the season, Keenum outplayed every quarterback in the league and against better competition. Brees and Brady were almost in step.

    But best in the league was Keenum. You know where they ranked him after the season?

    Look for yourself.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...ers-across-nfl

    Even if you put up his entire season, the man had a great year. Over the last 8 games? No one better.

    Anyway lets compare.

    Over the last 8 games:


    1. Keenum-----71.7% Completion percentage 15 touchdowns 4 Interceptions

    3. Brady--------66.4% Completion percentage 16 touchdowns 6 Interceptions

    4. Brees--------72.4% Completion percentage 10 touchdowns 4 Interceptions


    Of course, Im not saying anything about the post season as both Brees and Brady and their teams/coaching staffs have WAY more playoff experience. But ask Brees about his game in Minnesota......lol.


    Some say he's on a one year contract and ready for the door.......that may be true. But the Broncos may have just helped him get the biggest contract he could ever have hoped for. If Keenum shows up and blows the socks off of everyone.....this two year contract will have been his greatest decision......Especially with a new collective bargaining agreement due in 3 years.

    Why shouldn't we hope that he turns out to be a Brees type? He displayed some great quarterbacking last season.

    Why shouldn't we give him some damn help in this draft?

    John the damn duke Elway may have done it again.

    That’s an awful lot of stats and stuff, War. I went back and watched every game he played and every pass Keenum made last year after we signed him. He’s... okay. He’s Jake Plummer with a little more accuracy/decision making ability but less arm strength and real ability to run (not just scramble). He was a small ball QB who played small ball and did well. Lots (and I mean lots!) of screens and <5 yard dump offs. When he did throw downfield he often got lucky and/or bailed out by Thielen and Diggs. The big difference between Keenum last year and other QBs of his talent level is that his gambles worked. He should’ve thrown 3x the Ints that he did. We’ll get to see him first hand this season and I’d be willing to bet he’s gonna be more 2016 Keenum than 2017.

    Everybody is saying Keenum is a "bridge QB" but bridge to what? I say it's a one-year audition to become the Broncos long term franchise QB.

    If he doesn't work out, they can cut him next year and take a $10m cap hit. I doubt they want to do that, but they could conceivably trade him somewhere for something.

    This is regardless of whether the Broncos have drafted a QB or not. If they don't take a QB in the first round, then it's likely Keenum's the guy for the next 2 seasons.

    The Broncos could draft a QB in 2019 as well as now. The rest of the team is going to need serious work anyway - like they are 8-10 starters away from a SB parade.

    Is he better than Trevor Siemien? Without a doubt.

    I sure hope for the best but i will always point to guys like this as to why you cant just crown someone THE guy after one season. It just doesnt work like that.

    The Jury is still out on guys like Keenum and Foles.

    I gotta say I havent watched every Viking game and one thing a player has to do is pass the eye test. No reason to distrust your viewpoint....with all thats been said, its a year to year deal in the NFL.


    Lets see what happens.

    Watch the Lions game, he completed 3 passes longer than 15-yards, iirc, and all 3 were safe outside the numbers/back shoulder throws.

    Dude is L I M I T E D, extremely limited.

    He’s also kind of a bitch, apparently got butthurt because Zimmer wouldn’t call him “starter”. If that were Cutler this MB would lose its collective shit.

    Men of logic and knowledge know when something that is shit is shit. Had CK been signed anywhere else no one here would be so optimistic for him.

    Zimmer is a hardass and a man's man. CK is a career backup and a whiner. Zimmer, on any given day, whips CK's ass.
