That, and you can tell he just genuinely likes Keenum - his background, personality, work ethic, etc...Uncle Bob was just pacifying the fans...
Kubiak liked him, too. In OTAs and training camp, he would talk about Keenum in a way I've never heard a coach talk about a third-string quarterback before. Most coaches hardly know the name of the third-string QB.
But Kubiak probably had a hunch about Keenum's limitations, whereas McNair had to see them up-close.
Now that he has, no doubt QB will be the top priority in the offseason.
