Default Re: What does Keenum have to do to convince you he's the guy going forward?

He doesn't have to blaze a trail in the first game, that's for sure. I want to see him competently manage games and move the ball down the field. I want to see him keep the mistakes to a minimum, and keep them from happening at critical moments. In other words, I want to see him answer the challenge of the big moments. If he plays well enough to continue starting, I want to see him make plays to win. I want to see him move in the pocket well enough so that a play isn't forfeit the moment a pass rusher beats his man. I want to see him throw the ball down the field, instead of constantly checking down and throwing underneath. This offense is a short passing offense much of the time, but we've all seen the vertical game disappear completely this season. I want that to change.

Not all of that has to happen in the first game. But if he plays well enough to continue starting, I expect him to have proven he belongs by year end. I don't care about stats. I'm tired of looking at Schaub's 250+ yards a game and knowing he's played like crap.
