I really don't understand this argument. "See what he's got" It really doesn't matter what he's got if we're not winning. I think there's a very good chance that Kubiak is gone if we're not in the play-offs. He may be out, if we're one & done. If Kubiak is gone, we're drafting another QB & unless Keenum wins the Super Bowl, there will be plenty of stop gaps out there that would make more sense as our starting QB.
The only reason to start Keenum, imo, is if you truly believe he can save our season. With the talent on this team & if Keenum can be our Russell Wilson/Collin Kaepernick, we should still be in the AFC Championship game & imo, that's the only thing that should save Kubiak's job.
If I'm Kubiak & I believed that, there's no way anyone other than Keenum will start in KC. But I'm not going to throw Keenum out there in any situation just to see what he's got.
