Re: Is our next QB already on the roster?
The Coogs O-line has never been all that good throughout Keenum's career, and his defenses have always been terrible until late in the 2011 season.
And yet, when you pull up all the names of the QBs that were drafted recently, including Luck and RG III and look at how Keenum played against common opponents, you will see that his production was outstanding.
I had done some research before (even though I may miss a game or two), Keenum was always as good or better despite seeing more pressure than the other guys.
The list is very long. Besides Luck and RG III, you can add Weeden, Mallett, Foles, Osweler, etc. (basically most QBs from the PAC 10 and Big 12) and some from other conferences as well.
Obviously, nobody knows whether he can sustain the beating or not; otherwise, everything indicates that he can play.
