    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.

    Why not? what's he going to do? Throw some interceptions? We started our interception machine today.

    it would actually be insulting to him to have him start imo

    he's not a franchise qb and he really has no future here.

    Isn't OD coming back for the last game? Maybe they should start him at QB.

    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.

    How does that make him different from Schaub or Keenum?

    we've seen yates already. and he looked liked a mediocre qb. he isn't a franchise qb and he really aint much better than the 2 qb's we've already played.

    it really doesn't matter at this point.

    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?

    Do we have any other players on the team who may have played some QB in high school?

    (Yes, I'm joking, but only barely.)

    I saw we line up our three QBs at receiver, have OD overthrow and underthrow all his passes to them so they can get creamed by the DBs and LBs just so they can find out what it's like.

    Schaub & Keenum haven't been doing anything for the offense so why the hell not?

    they started schaub because they knew he was gonna schaub it up.

    TJ Yates might throw some bombs and we might win.

    At least you can depend on schaub for 3 field goals and a crucial interception at some point in the game.

    I was going to say "What could it hurt?" until I remembered that he could lead the team to victory next week and potentially cost us the #1 draft pick.

    And now the Ravens are stinking it up against the Evil Empire. The day just keeps spiraling down the drain....
