Default Re: Which QB will be waived?

I knew TJ was likely the odd guy out...he was the guy least freshest in everyone's mind in terms of play on the field....he was the guy everyone says had the least upside. The 2 reasons above also didn't jive well with the fact that he was to be the 2nd highest paid qb on the roster. No brainer really.

I'm glad it turned out this way. I like Case a lot & think he has a future as a backup & the potential to be a starter someday. However, I don't think he's out of the woods just yet. Depending upon who gets released, Case could still be let go later. He's on the bubble right now & can't let up even a little bit yet.

It's one of the very important character trait that I saw in Keenum that I like.

On the field, of the field.
From my observation, he's never shown a displeasure of a blocker missing a block or a receiver dropping a pass or running a different route than he anticipates.

In every interview, even in college, he always took the brunt.
It's never "we can play better"; it's always " I should play better".

With that attitude, even if he doesn't become a starter in the NFL, I believe he will contribute to society.

I agree with you on Keenum.

Even though Keenum becoming a great QB means more to me than his contributions to society. LOL

He will do just fine after he's thru with the NFL. Probably will become a HS/College HC.

I got this one WAAAAY wrong. I thought Keenum would be gone for sure.

While I didn't feel that either TJ or Case were BOB's kind of guys, I thought that BOB would take Yates over Keenum, given Yates playoff experience.


Meh, sometimes I like being wrong.

How ironic would it be if they both become the backup to their respective starting QB's?

On yesterday's Koch & Kalu Pat Starr reported that Fitz & Savage were getting most of the snaps during OTAs, Case & Tj were alternating days when they took snaps & days when they didn't.

The deck seems stacked against the Coog.

Looks like they don't care too much for Fitzpatrick........no more than 6 wins in any season he was a starter.

Another interesting point they brought out. That million dollar roster bonus that AJ lost increases our cap by a million, if it is not renegotiated if AJ returns.

Technically this is still in play. Keenum could still be the player that is waived since Yates was traded. Lets see how it plays out in preseason.

I think there's a very good chance of that happening. If McGroin is cut I think we'd be all over him. There might be a few QBs cut that we rate higher than Keenum, which shouldn't be that high imo

I still believe that O'brien doesn't like his back up QB options and will move both Yates (traded) and Keenum some how. I believe he wants to acquire McGloin from the Raiders as he is currently 3rd on the dept chart.

IMHO, the Raiders would be foolish to go into the season with only 2 QBs. As good as Carr has looked thus far, he has not faced live bullets. Schaub has significant reliability questions after the past 2 seasons and, in addition, likely to "degenerate" quickly when played.
