Unless the great and powerful Kubiak saw something that the 31 others teams passed on. If he had ANY chance at all someone would have used a 7th round pick on him as a project.

As for Case, sorry redbloods but Case will never amount to anything in the NFL. Just another NCAA QB from a spread offense who has no chance as an NFL QB.
yeah old thread, but it was still early this 2013 year. Pretty interesting to see the fan views back then.

I knew one day keenum would get his chance. weather he does well or not remains a mystery this sunday but he's not just any NCAA QB from a spread offense. He's our QB this Sunday that a lot of us are rooting for.

I think it would have had more sting if you waited until Case was entrenched as the starter.

Nice, yeah, the posts on page 2 were pretty interesting. NFL history is littered with highly drafted busts at QB so I'm not sure why some folks are so adamant on Keenum's draft status. Sure, where someone is drafted is typically an indicator of their potential, but it's just potential and nothing more. What any one players does after they are picked up by a squad is unwritten.

I know this is an old post & I haven't seen GP around lately, but what he's speaking of here I think is more on the QB, not the coach. The coach wants everyone on his team to want to get better, to want to win a championship, to want to be the starter.

It's my opinion that Tj has gotten comfortable being a back-up, & while he says he wants to be a starter, he had two opportunities to make his case & he failed miserably.

I hope Case acts like he wants to be the starter & he backs it up with his play. Starting @home week 9 isn't his & shouldn't be taken for granted. If I were the coach, that's the way I want it. I want him to prove to me he deserves the start in week 9. As good a QB I think Matt Schaub is right now all that means is don't turn the ball over.

I expect Case to take a few licks Sunday. If he fumbles the ball (whether in the pocket, rolling out of the pocket, or going for the Rosencopter) it's over. I know Schaub will not drop the ball when sacked. If he tosses the ball in very bad situations, if he gets rid of the ball because he's scared, it's over. Matt's only tossed it up once that I know of because he was scared.

Kubiak can win games with a QB who takes care of the ball.

No, Matt would much rather fumble the ball by himself when there's no one around him (see Patriots playoff game)

Agreed and I'm a Keenum "homer". It's just all over the place and whether you want to avoid it, debunk it, debate it, or drown in it makes no difference. Going from thread to thread to find posts about the same subject gets old.

Lets pull all this mess together please. Please?

An all encompassing Keenum thread would be about a 1000 pages long!

Well fellow Texan fans, we'll be finding out soon enough all about Mr. Case Keenum.

Ask and you shall receive (sometimes).

I'll leave the others that are already well developed but hopefully this will kill off a little of the redundancy.

Poor TJ - he never got redundant enough to merit an all encompassing thread.
