It not only requires the QB to recognize what the defense is doing but the line and the receivers need to see the same thing(s) and make the right adjustments (which is why AJ needs to have his @$$ in camp but I digress...)
The guys who get to stay are those who demonstrate they can read the defense the quickest and make the right counter calls.
I wonder when O'Brien says they're all coming along equally if he means that all four are progressing swimmingly or that all four are equally lost.
This makes me think it'll be TJ who makes the cut, not Keenum.
If anything I expect that O'Brien will err on the side of taking the QB that is more prototypical towards his system, and that would be TJ, not Keenum.
