Default Post-Preseason Wk 1; Tj or Case?

Let's say Matt's wife talks him into hanging it up before the season starts.... go live on a Hawaiian Island or something (it could happen), Who would you rather as our starting QB?

Tj Yates: From North Carolina, been running "our" system for at least 4 years.

Case: NCAAF passing leader (of all time)... he has "it"

poll coming

Default Re: Post-Preseason Wk 1; Tj or Case?

After the Vikings game, I'm partial to Case. Before the Vikings game, I was partial to TJ.

I'd need to see more of both of them before I could say.

As a UH grad, I would love it story-wise if Case beat out TJ and turned into the second coming of Joe Montana. But I just want the best QB on the field, not the best story.

Default Re: Post-Preseason Wk 1; Tj or Case?

I'd like to state for the record that I didn't read all the options and didn't see "May the Best Man Win". I was thinking it was an either or and looked for my choice between the two and clicked away.

Had a finished reading the options I'd have clicked on "May The Best Man Win"

If Schaub had to hang it up before the season started I would have to say that the QB who gives us the best chance to win isn't on our roster.

We'd trade for someone. I'm not going to say who but I know that Kubiak has connections. *Hint Hint*

If Schaub finishes out his contract I could see Case possibly improving more and being able to hold the starting job.

Yates wasn't even impressive at UNC.

Uh.... he was drafted. The other guy was passed by 32 teams 7 times.

That's 32 x 7 = Something like a million times.

Yeah, I voted 'may the best man win' due to how early it is. I'm sure one or the other will win my vote in the weeks to come.

I feel pretty much the same way , pre Vikes I figured it was Yates job but post Vikes , I think its an open competition.
Its probably still "Yates job to lose" , but the pressure is ratcheted up a few notches. Keenum likely has to significantly outplay Yates but he has a shot to earn the job.


I do believe that Keenum had the better showing Vs the Vikes by a pretty wide margin. Yates started very slowly ....

This is Yate's 4th year in the system. He hasn't been running the system for four years. Next preseason you can say he's been running the system for four years.

I voted for Keenum. That "it" he seems to have is greater than the sum of Yates' experience, IMHO.

Actually I was trying to include his Junior & Senior year at UNC.... but my math is bad either way.

May the best man win.

But I have a feeling it'd be Case eventually taking over whether he got it immediately or not. TJ seems like a career backup to me, but Case has starting potential if he can learn the pro game.

I genuinely don't give a rats ass who the QB. Let the better QB win.

FTR - Case had it in college. There's no proof he has it in the pros. Actually 32 franchises decided he didn't have it when he went undrafted. Minor point.

Most dislike his height and the fact that played in a spread offense. Great spread offense QB's usually don't fare too well at the NFL level.

....playing with guys who won't have a job in a month.

I voted let the best man win. The stats were close with TJ getting 20-30 more yards and a tiny deficit in completion percentage.....but 17-0 is significant. The reason qb's get so much grief is because what they do has such an impact on everyone else. It appears that the team played faster and looser after TJ left. This is just one game, it might change in the next one but there was nothing wrong with Ck performance. I think TJ was sluggish/inefficient and that concerns me, he shouldn't be at this point
