Hell, I could learn how to sit on the bench drinking Gatoraid.
Actually, I agree with everything you said there. (I know, right?)

For the record, I was as mad as everyone else was when Keenum was pulled. Figure the only way he's gonna learn how to deal with the blitz, is to stay on the field and take the hard knocks. But having said that, I do understand why Kubiak pulled him, not that I agree with it. With the OL as bad as it is, and with the RBs not having a clue about blitz protecting, you'd be a fool to not worry about shell shocking this kid. Play Keenum with long term interests in mind, but put him in an environment where he has a chance, not where he's running for his life every time the ball is snapped. Do that, and eventually he'll end up being a turtle like David Carr.

Yeah, good luck convincing 'our fellow fans' of that. The "quick-fix" mentality around here is just as rampant as it ever was.
