Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

I have no issues with it. It is the right decision.I am looking forward to the season. I think Haskins starts after week 5.

Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

It's not a schedule thing for me. Right now Case is the better and more experienced QB. There's no value in sending out the less experienced guy, unless he totally separated himself from the competition, which he clearly did not. That's no way to get the rest of the team to buy into what you're doing either. Haskins will get his chance eventually...

+1

You guys are mad Haskins didn't get the job by default, since when has Gruden ever adjusted his scheme to run what a player knows? Gruden has never adjusted his scheme for a qb, except in the emergency situation last year.

Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

If you start Keenum and Keenum fails, you can go to Haskins in a situation where he can take his time and learn. On the other hand if you start with Haskins and he fails and you go to Keenum, you wonder if you just fd his confidence. Its an obvious choice.

These are my thoughts exactly. I do not want to screw with Haskins' growth and confidence and throw him to the wolves right away. Keenum is the safer bet and has done things before in this league whether people wanna recognize it or not. Haskins has work to do- footwork, accuracy, etc. His Big X days are over.

And he can take Allen with him, they are both proven losers. You are what your record says you are.

Haha. True.

Do you think Gruden's contract situation will impact how much Haskins plays? It seems like if JG and DH can show a glimmer of hope for the future than ownership might give JG an extension. If not than DH will be starting over again with a new coach and a new system. At some point this year the team has to see if JG and DH are a good match.

Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

FWIW Case has been the 3rd highest graded passer through pre-season. Now mostly that is due to him not playing very much but still worthy of being mentioned.

You hit the nail on the head. This is the way to go.

Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

Haskins could start now and he'd be ok but why rush him into the lineup with a bad LT and average WR? Let the veteran take those snaps for now.

And the most brutal portion of the schedule.

Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

Yawn, pretty much what I expected. Like Matty said, wake me when Haskins gets in there.

When Keenum starts out 1 TD and 4 or 5 Ints, people will want Haskins in. So onward to Philly

Re: Keenum - Week 1 Starter

Run the offense through Guice and AP and change some schematic things plays to Cases strength....he can perform as well as Alex last year.

I dont know why, but I feel much better about the WR position going into this year than last.
