Default Re: Does Anybody still BELIEVE in Case Keenum?

I origianlly put this in another thread. Thought it made more sense here.

This was one of the reasons Keenum failed so miserably .... failure to get the ball out quickly , along with defenses catching on to how to stop him - pressure.
This was also supposed to be one of his strong suits. & playing from the spread, you'd think he was pretty good at making quick decisions. They simply didn't materialize in live NFL situations.

However, something else had to have been going on. Keenum was in a lot of situations he should have known he blitz was coming, or situations he should have known to get rid of the ball quickly. Like those sacks in the end zone... QB 101 tells you not to hold onto the ball when you're in the end zone. Throw it away if your play isn't there. But time & time again he made bad decisions. Decisions that the lack of a running game, or a TE, or a competent RT does not exonerate.

If we drafted Cam Newton with the #1 overall selection out of Brigham Young & he was sacked/stripped in the end zone twice in an 8 week period, continues to scramble backwards taking us out of field goal range, fail to understand the other team is going to blitz on 3rd down... I'm not making excuses for him.
