Yates has a quick release that is natural & fluid.

He has size & ability to elude the rush.

He also has a solid base of playing in this system which will only improve his chances for success.
I like Tj, but definitely thinks he needs more help...

Right now, we've got a talented team..... Andre, Arian, OD, Casey... he's got play makers out there to help him out, make him look better than what he is.

Playing with a team like this can help build his confidence while he builds his skills.

Then later when the team isn't as stacked with talent, maybe he'll be ready to lead the team, because I think he's got the intangibles an NFL QB needs.

I think Case is more of the kind of guy that will make his team mates look better. Yes, make Andre look better, make Arian look better, make OD & Casey look better.

I'm not saying he is that guy, but what he did at UH leads me to believe he's capable of being that guy. I don't know if he's ready to do it at this time or at this level.

I think we're lucky to have both of them & can't wait to see how this plays out.

Just an FYI. Yesterday, Conference USA announced the winners of the 2011-12 Male Athlete of the Year award..........it was Case Keenum.

Funny that he wins the award on his way out the door to the NFL and his university out the door to the BE next year.

CUSA will probably become the new "forgotten conference"

Yeah, I'm going to be "That guy" who brings up an old thread (as if there wasn't enough Keenum chatter already). This was such a good read, though, from beginning to end. If you have the time read the whole thing.

There was/is some serious Negrodmus stuff going on up in here!

this is what i love about message boards, its fun to go back and see who the true believers from the start were and who the converted ones were, and then the ones who say "iknew it all along" until u go back and see where they didnt.

Looks like I was one of the right ones.

After looking back, there wasn't really anyone who was super
negative or said the guy would fail.

I think the general concensus was that we needed a legit #3
given Schaub's health concerns and Keenum would have at least
been that (in everyone's mind at the time)

Pretty much a rosie thread really..

I expected him to be a good pro, but not nearly this quick.

(and certainly not to have the highest QB rating and most
yard per completion in NFL history for his first 2 starts)

But seriously...I like this pick up a lot...
I didn't even really need to post in this thread.

Rey was referring to my posts in the college and mock draft forum.

I was saying things like if you think a guy can be a franchise QB, you need to seriously consider drafting him in the first round.

I consider Keenum as a grand general like Napoleon Bonaparte. He might be small in stature, but he ran roughshod all over Europe. Another inch or inch and a half and some ten-fifteen more pounds of muscle, and I would take him over Luck and RGIII any day.
The only concern I have with him is his size; he needs to be smart like Brees and Brady to avoid the hits as much as possible.

Happy to have the hometown kid in camp just for the fun of it, but the odds of watching him taking any regular season NFL snaps are extremely low.
Considering the source, I just have to ROFLMAO.
