But you know what? Case Keenum won over the fans of the Minnesota Vikings. He's got a fire in him to succeed. Something tells me Broncos fans are going to be surprised at how well he plays. And maybe by the end of the season, they'll accept him the way we did. Hope so.

He's just a bridge player for them. I understand not being excited as a Broncos fan, but it beats the alternative of NOT having a bridge player at QB. They weren't going to get Cousins and they knew that before they signed Keenum. Broncos fans need to recalibrate given that reality.

They need to recalibrate in a lot of ways.

They were extremely lucky to pull off that last Super Bowl victory with Peyton Manning playing at sub-Dilfer level. Since then, they've gone 14-18, trending downward. How anyone could call this a good team is absolutely beyond me. I don't care about their defense, which is nowhere near what it was in 2015. As Bill Parcells is so often quoted: You are what your record says you are.

I never thought Kase was all that as a QB, I just thought he was a good fit for us last year. He could easily regress next season. He didn't look to great against the Eagles. We shall see how he does in Denver. I don't think it will go too well there for him myself.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Minnesota. Some of the most incredible, crazy, miraculous moments of my life happened this past year. Couldn't of happened without y'all. Made this Texas boy feel right at home.

Case seems to be a pretty good guy. I think his time here was mutually beneficial which is great. I hope he can keep up the success he had with the Vikings last year - even if it will make our front office look a little foolish.

he has had exactly 1 good year in the nfl

Thats exactly why I wanted Cousins over Keenum. A lot less risk. But some cant get past the fact that Keenum went 13-3. Did he play well, yeah. But he had an unreal team around. Go put him on a mediocre to bad team and he's not successful. Imagine him on the Redskins. Guarantee he wouldnt have brought those teams to a .500 record. He's a QB that is good with talent around him but cant do it by himself. Cousins is the same way but more consistent over his career

I like Case, but he got pretty ragged down the stretch. I thought he was clearly a backup in the 2nd half of the season. Forcasting out and assuming they are all healthy, I have the very unpopular take that the vikings QBs last year were 1. Bridgewater, 2. Keenum, 3. Bradford. Bradford's pocket presence (or lack there of) just eliminates all the things he does well being possible on a consistent basis (and he does a lot of things REALLY well).

Bradford requires a CLEAN pocket 24/7 and in the NFL that's not going to happen. Pocket awareness and the ability to move around and buy time when the pocket is breaking down is an essential skill to be a great quarterback.

I agree. Bradford has all the talent in the world but he's never been able to maximize it. That's not just because he's been on lousy teams (thats a factor) its also because he doesn't mitigate the negatives of his surrounding cast by doing the little things like climging the pocket well. Case will never have the raw talent of sam, but he DOES the little things well, and that enabled him to have great success last year.

Post Re: Case Keenum is now a Denver Bronco, $18-20M per year
I loved watching Keenum play - so many QBs won't throw to a guy who is covered and it kills me to see some of the WR talent that only gets a few targets per game because someone like Rhodes or Peterson is on their butt. Those moments where Case would float it to a covered WR and let them make a play and earn their money were fantastic viewing when we had a lead but as games became tight they were heart in mouth moments.

I hope Denver can beat those risks out of him because he seems like a great guy and he played his part in some great Skol moments this year. I can't really begrudge him anything - it's probably a Scottish thing, we're underdogs in everything so I love to cheer for those guys.

Case actually did fairly well when he was there.

Depends on your definition of "good."

McNair never threw for more than 3,300 yards under Fisher. His career YPG was less than 200 with a career completion percentage of barely 60 and YPA of under 7.

If anything, Jeff Fisher held Steve McNair back.

Meanwhile, Keenum completed 60% of his passes under Fisher with a sub-80 passer rating, 6.1 YPA, and almost as many interceptions as touchdowns.

Jeff Fisher's teams were where quarterbacks went to die a slow, agonizing death. The man had 6 winning seasons out of 22, and four of those were with McNair at quarterback. He's the most overrated coach in the history of the NFL. Jared Goff should thank his lucky stars he only had to endure one season under Fisher.

Keenums rookie year.
2013 Keenum played 8 games because they benched Matt Schaub
Houston lost RB Arian Foster for the season.

2014 played 2 games when Ryan Fitzpatrick got injured....Houston

2015 played 6 games for Rams 87.7 rating replaced Nick Foles....Rams

2016 played 10 games replace Geoff....Rams was Keenums worst year.

2017 Vikings

I’m looking forward to next season for many reasons, but one of the them is to cheer for all of our former QBs and see how their seasons pan out. I am extremely happy with the Cousins signing, but I also like all three of our former QBs. It will be fun to see what they do and I wish them the best with their new teams (unless they’re playing the Vikes)

Case will always have my respect and appreciate for handling the battle of attrition we went through this year. His professionalism was outstanding. At the end of the day, I wish Case all the best.

I fear though Case has not landed in the best situation. He has good skill position players in Denver, but the offensive line there is worse off than the one in Minnesota. Hard to predict how the situation pans out for Case in Denver.

It's truly shocking how some die-hard fans forget what some players do for them, especially if the last game of the season doesn't end in a win. That only happens to "1" team.

I wonder if those who badmouth Case also badmouthed Cunningham and Tarkenton? They never finished a Vike's season with a win.

I hope the best for Cousins. As a fan since the early 70s, the "curse" has haunted me.

I also hope the best for Zimm and the rest of the coaching staff. With luck, they will remember how to get the Defense to play in the big games that count.

Case K., blessings and good luck. I hope you do well, except when you are facing a row of "horns" all dressed in purple.

Go Vikes!

Case would probably be back if not for the very rare circumstance we saw this year where a team lets a franchise QB hit free agency.

He's solidified in Viking history. The "Minneapolis Miracle", leading the Skol Chant, and just overall the way he carried himself. But it's a business and in the end, I think both sides came away winners.

I mentioned this somewhere but the cool thing is both he and Teddy are in the AFC, which makes it even easier to cheer for them. I'm not one to have multiple teams I cheer for but often times I'll watch a game on tv I'm pretty agnostic about. This gives more incentive to watch those games with a little more interest.

Does Denver play the Pats this year? Steelers?

When we signed him, I thought... "oh, great... a has-been, never will be". I was wrong. Case is a legit QB and a great human being.
Wishing Case a successful run in Denver. He came here humble and stayed humble and did his job really well. He took us to the brink of a Super Bowl, and he deserves our respect.

I actually wish Teddy and Case a lot of success
going forward.

Cousins has thrown the ball for 12 thousand yards
in a few years and is a little bit of a gunslinger QB
imo.

Case had a great year and played ten times what
his contract was for us last year.

I think Bradford would have the most natural
talent out of the last two years group of Viking
QB’s.

Let’s hope Cousins can help our offense grow
even more. We have a good selection of weapons
already.
