I think my optimistic faith in Keenum for two seasons has been rewarded. I still want a plan B with AJ. A QB of his calibre in third is incredible.
The NFL is a passing league now. Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, etc. these guys don't just manage the game. They go out and make plays and they win the game. McCarron's stats look pretty on paper, but the only game I've seen him go win is the A&M game this year against the worst defense in the country.
He could win his 3rd straight title this year because he's played behind 5 1st round NFL linemen, 2 1st round RB's, 2 1st round WR's, a defense that has had close to 10 guys drafted 1st round, and he has the best coach in college football.
The environment around him cultivates winning. All he has to do is not mess it up.
