Keenum has proven he deserves the benefit of the doubt. Mr. Forbath on the other hand.... that's what keeps me up at night and you know he'll need to make at least one critical kick.

I agree although he's been good lately other than the 55 yarder they had him try.

Keenum makes me nervous in that he's not flawless but that's not really fair. He's somewhere between the way I feel before Forbath kicks and the way I feel when Sherels is about to catch a punt. I wouldn't want any other QB taking his place in the playoffs. Whatever his shortcomings are he has been part of this team's success. More than that though, he's earned it. He's got my confidence.

One of his talking points is YAC. So I posted this on another forum that discussed the same article.

Top 10 in YAC
Code:
1   T. Gurley II     LAR   811
2   L. Bell          PIT   688
3   A. Kamara         NO   662
4   C. McCaffrey     Car   572
5   G. Tate          Det   555
6   D. Johnson Jr.   Cle   548
7   M. Ingram         NO   496
8   C. Thompson      Was   483
9   J. McKinnon      Min   476
10   A. Brown        PIT   471



So, 1,158 yards(26.7%) of Drew Brees 4,334 yards of passing goes to two players running after they caught the ball. Anyone have a story talking about Brees being a paper tiger? Or for that matter Ben Roethlisberger?

Found a spreadsheet I did at the end of last year. It shows that the NFL average for YAC makes up 46.1% of a QB total yardage. Now unless Keenum is depending on 65%, I'm not going to be concerned about it.

Well after two games the QB with the best stat line - Alex Smith - 24-33, 264 YDS, 2 TD, 0 INT, is on the losing team.

The winning QBs today, Matt Ryan and Marcus Mariota, threw for 218 and 205 yards, respectively, with Ryan throwing 1 TD and Mariota throwing 2.

Interesting story on Kennum using VR during they year.

Quote:
As a result, Keenum has had thousands of additional mental reps. In total since he took over starting duties in Week 2, Keenum has viewed 2,647 plays through virtual reality, which translated to him getting to review every play the Vikings have run this season two to three times from a mental standpoint over the course of the year, according to STRIVR’s tracking data.

That's pretty cool. Hopefully it translates to the field this Sunday.

Watching the College Championship game last night made me think. If Keenum is laying an egg in the first half. I mean seriously looks like the moment has gotten the best of him. Forcing throws, feeling phantom pressure, missing wide open targets. Would you try and create a spark by inserting Bradford or Bridgewater? That was a ballsy move by Saban.

It's an interesting question. I think the likeliest outcomes for Case would be missing open targets, turnovers and/or reluctance to pull the trigger (holding the ball too long) out of fear of making a mistake. If we see a stat line going into the half that's something like 6/14; 106 yards; 1/2 INTs; 0 TDs, I think you have to consider making a change. Part of me thinks that Case has earned the chance to get back in the game. But there's a larger part that knows Sam's natural talent and Teddy's composure, leadership and late-game prowess. I think I would reluctantly make the change and hope for a spark but I don't think Zimmer would.
