that should tell you right there who has the upside and potential and it at least warrants yates beat out keenum in practice reps vs 1st team defense.
What's the problem with proving it and earning it?
Freaking hate this mentality of hey schaubs been starter lets keep going with him just cuz huurr durrrr.
its just retarded.
First of all, Keenum is in his 2nd year in this system as well....just b/c he was on the practice squad last year doesn't mean he wasn't supposed to be learning the offense as well..
2nd of all, the bolded works both ways...you look at it as Yates didn't separate himself from Keenum just b/c Yates is the incumbent....well Keenum didn't exactly definitively separate himself from Yates in preseason either.
& i don't have a problem with the whole pratice reps thing you suggest. But are we really
trusting our HC to make the honest evaluation of who should win the starting spot? His fatal flaw is he's loyal to a fault....
