Sumlin coached under Briles and kept his offensive system. It's the same system. Kolb, Keenum, RG3, and Manziel have all played in the same system, with only very minor differences. As someone said above, conference bias screws up talent evaluation. Keenum could turn into the next Drew Brees or he could turn into the next Kevin Kolb. Whatever he turns into isn't going to be because of whatever system he ran in college. It's going to be because he was never given the same opportunity that a guy like RG3 or Kolb was given, at least in large part. And that's really the root of the Keenum debate. You have people arguing that he should get a chance to fail and you have people arguing that he should not. The people arguing he should not largely base their argument on stupid **** like the fact that he wasn't drafted, which is circular logic, or that he's only 6' tall. The only times anyone has seen Keenum play, he's been impressive. Yes, it was college and preseason, so what's the step after that?

What else could Keenum do to make some of y'all give him a chance? (not aimed at you specifically Mr Tex)
