Remember the knock about Newton; how he never play under center in college (but I counted at least 17 plays that he was under center.)
Case played under center more than that in his Freshman year, but the Cougars eventually went away from that; they still use Keenum under center occasionally in his last two years, similar to how Newton was used or RG III was used.
If Kubiak had decided to mimic Shannahan, Keenum would be the guy who is most comfortable in that system, more so than Schaub or Yates.
Look at what I originally said.
Most of those guys IN THE PAST who came into the NFL failed. Most of them failed because they needed to have the offense tailored to what it was they could do. MOST OCs aren't going to do that.
In the past couple of years, we've had a few instances of coaches changing their offenses to accommodate some of these system QBs: RGIII, Cam, Tebow. But most OCs are not going to do that OR if they do, they're going to try to revert back to the offense they want as soon as they get that QB up to speed.
We have yet to see any of those system guys hae a long and successful career in the NFL. There's no way I expect Kubiak to shift to that sort of system. He doesn't need to. For CASE to be successful, he has to become the perfect system QB for KUBIAK's system.
I think it's possible that he does but it's too early to say that he has. Let's let him play a few more games.
