Most d-coordinators will take there chances with those....if they have confidence in their secondary. Manusky clearly wasn't shaken by keenum's propensity to throw it deep.
Even so, Keenum was hitting those throws. I thinik he only missed one deep throw.
I don't blame Keenum for this loss. Yes, it would have been good if they scored a TD in the 2nd half, but our defense shouldn't give up 3 consecutive TDs and our kicker shouldn't be missing 3 FGs. Keenum played well enough to win. The defense and ST played well enough to lose.
