something yard line. Or the 28 yard completion to the
middle of the field when Keenum was standing in the
endzone with the pocket collapsing around him.
Honestly, I just cannot fathom Gary letting Matt or T.J.
even attempt those. It's so "outside of the Kubiak comfort
zone". Granted, it was the preseason, but I don't ever
recall him doing that in prior preseasons either.
Everytime I saw a play like that I got sort of a "Sink or Swim"
feeling from Gary's playcalling.
I was saying that Keenum was put in more challenging situations than what we normally see in the preseason, with any coach really.
They only do that to find out if the guy can handle the various situations.
Keenum passed those tests admirably.
On the other hand, Yates were put in fewer challenging situations, and he also passed those tests. Not only that, he executed most of the routine plays well as a whole.
It was a very good battle.
