I get what you're saying. But if you saw Matt Barkley come in and play for Philly you saw what a 3rd string QB is supposed to look like. A steaming pile of dog $hit. Keenum looked like an actual QB in the NFL.
Not saying he is the answer either, however, really wish people would stop downplaying what everyone clearly saw last week.
People downplaying that sounds a lot like the Iraq'i guy who claimed there were no US troops in Iraq....
