If you don't think Keenum gives us a viable chance to win, he shouldn't be in there.
This is just entertainment for us, but Kubiak has a responsibility to Dennison, Benton, Dorrell, Harris, & all of the position coaches excluding Herring & Joseph (chances are that Wade will survive at DC if he wants to).
I don't think this is about being short sighted. He's trying to win a game & by pulling Case, he's telling us he does not believe Case gives us that viable chance to win.
At the same time, he's not helping Case with the play calling. Ben Tate has 4 broken ribs. We should be using 4 WRs more often than not, 1 RB, primarily out of the shotgun. I'd also use a TE instead of a RB when we're in shotgun... a decent receiver out of the backfield who can protect the QB or sneak out and catch a screen.
If he were smart, he'd tweak the offense for Case now & worry about making him Matt Schaub next season, but with that stunt he just pulled, he pretty much killed any opportunity of being here with Case next season.
