As someone pointed out, he looked worse as the game went on. That happens with 1st time starters- they look good at first, because the other team knows nothing about them. As they play and the other team gets a feel for them, well, they look worse.

He did enough for me to want to see him as the starter for the next game.
His offensive line couldn't pick up a blitz.. and what bad throws did he make? please list them. let's say we spend a first round pick on a QB and in their first start against a team who's

Number 1 in points allowed (btw Case led a team that beat that average and he would've smashed it if his receivers could simply hold on to the football)

was number 1 in turnovers allowed

and was

also number 1 in passing yards allowed.... (a UDFA completed big plays against them all day long)

If you spent a first round pick on a QB and that QB performed half as well as Keenum did, you'd be ecstatic.. he was our best player on the field today.
