Yates stepped in and looked like Schaub in SF. He didn't go through progressions and he made terrible reads on his 2 INTs
I think whoever starts on Sunday is going to be in a very tough spot since KC's defense is pretty aggressive. Our game plan needs to get a lot more creative than what's we've been trotting out there if we even wanna contend.
I don't expect Keenum to spark this team into the playoffs - in other words, sustaining a prospective good showing in a debut. But I am hoping that he pumps some life into some players, so that they can believe again. If that means a healthy Schuab steps back in a few games later - fine.
Right now, this team needs a jolt. They need something to make them believe again.
