Thing is, they're not even disguising the blitzes. Something more is going on here than just Keenum "can't read blitzes."
There doesn't seem to be any hot routes to throw to! There doesn't seem to be any adjustments from the offense at all. They seem to be doing exactly what they want to be doing and just hoping Keenum has enough time to do it. Which he doesn't. 5 step drops? In an obvious all out blitz?
Schaub was not very good with blitzes either. The scheme seems to have a problem with blitzes.
Has the threat of a running game been the primary deterrent of the blitz? With that gone the scheme can't handle it? Why are there no plays designed specifically to exploit a blitz? I don't understand.
Keenum did not just suddenly get stupid. I'm not buying that it's 100% Keenum's fault at all. The problem is deeper.
