Default The Swag time is upon us.

Now in will admit I've had a few beers or 12.

BOTTOM LINE.


Keenum will get us wins and is an ok backup but nothing more. He will never get us a SB .

5 ints , what less then 60 yard at halftime, under two hundred for the game . Zero TD's again and a pick. Plus the dude was holding the ball way to long.


So let's just move on from here and start Swag. At least we have a chance with this guy.

3 games, record time for calling for unready back-up QB.

We no if we need to draft a 1st td qb or invest our picks for other needs like OL, CB and ILB

Get another top 5 pick and draft a QB.

Keenum has had 6 seasons to prove he's a legit starter.
Not my fault Elway gave him a bunch of coin. That's his problem.
Time for Swag.

The only reason not to do it is if JE doesn't think VJ is his future coach. Changing QB now will make for a bad look if JE cans VJ for not winning with a new QB.

Assuming Elway is still on the fence play Keesum. Reeval at the bye.

If I was Elway I’d force VJ to play Kelly once the Broncos are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Once the season is over, I fire VJ

That doesnít give Kelly enough time to show his stuff and prove we donít need to draft a guy in the 1st round. We arenít doung anything meaningful with Keenum anyway, so I just donít see the point.

Keenum isn't the problem. It's the coaching. Kelly isn't some panacea for all the bad things that happened today.

I think he is better suited for the mess of an o line we saw today. I think he makes a few of plays Keenum couldn't

He's completing 61% of his passes, thrown the most Ints, and is currently the 31st rated QB in the league.

Don't kid yourself, he has been a large part of the problem.

There isnít just one problem, there are many, and Keenum, with his 5 picks and passer rating of 71.6 is definitely one of the bigger ones.

IDK

We had another run of 7 punts in a row. Lots of balls falling short. I think a stronger QB makes some of those throws.

I can live with a bad pick here and there if you are throwing multiple TD's. Give me the young QB over a career journeyman who has hit his ceiling.

Let Kelly learn this year so we can compete next year. The OL has improved, though they struggled on the road yesterday, mostly because the QB held the ball foreverSSS!!!

Rework Keenums deal to stay around as a backup for the next 5 years.
