Keenum has really great pocket awareness and knows how to stay alive and make the play. :rock:

That was one hell of a good drive... overcame a couple of penalties and made some plays! Then Forbath. :wallbang:

I don't blame blocked kicks on the kickers much, but do we need to sign a kicker just for XPs?

DET is getting good pressure. Keenum is handling it well so far.

Great drive. Bad XPA
