Default Start Yates next week

Because why not? Keenum's hurt and Schaub still sucks. No reason not to give the guy one start. It's a slap in the face that he hasn't gotten a shot yet.

If Keenum can't play then why not start Yates over Schaub. Both are limited, turnover machines but one is 32 and will be gone next year and one is 26 and will at least be on the roster next year.

No way, gotta get Keenum back out there, he just needs more time. His stats in his first games is better than Elway and Manning! He is the future!

At least that way some of the deadbeats that have the nerve to bang on Andre for a few dropped balls will be able to come up with another round of excuses for their boy.

Cut Schaub.

Cut Yates.

Sign free-agent QB Gary Kubiak to a one game deal.

We've seen less action out of Yates than we have out of Keenum.
Five starts vs. Keenum's 8 or whatever.

If someone can come up with a good reason why we should start any of the QBs on our team, let me know.

I say start him. He's been waiting patiently for a shot and schaub and keenum hasn't exactly outplayed him.

If just out of respect to him. If we stuck with keenum going 0-8 then why the hell not?

Fuuny thread that the OP says that it's a slap in the face to Yates. Lol!

As if Yates is some sort of starter material. Newsflash, Yates is a backup and no he does not deserve to be in there even over Schaub. Yates hasn't ever earned the right to start.

This isn't the YMCA. Not everyone gets to play. Yates is a dumpster fire and so is Schaub.
I say you direct snap to the RB and see how quickly they can run to the #1 pick in the draft.

Because keenum was just "lights out" in his 0-8 record, right? The only reason he isn't starting is due to injury. Matt Schaub single handedly started the train wreck that is the 2013 season. I'm just saying, if keenum gets 32 quarters to try and prove his worth, shouldn't Yates get more than 2?

At this point, we are starting the third and fourth RBs, flip flopping between back up QBs, playing our 3rd string TE and don't even get me started on the defensive backups that are playing.

The only reason they SHOULDNT play Yates is if he is a dead man walking and everyone in the FO knows he is cut the first opportunity they get. If they want him to remain on the team after 2013 then it would make sense to give him the start to see what he's made of under circumstances like these, two years removed from his playoff win.

Keenum has shown why the other 31 teams passed on him and why he was an UDFA.

Schaub is an absolute wreck that needs to retire.

Yates is no worse then these two guys.
