Case Keenum shows teams canít evaluate quarterbacks

If you want to know how clueless all of us ó and I mean everyone who watches the NFL and everyone who works in the NFL ó is about evaluating quarterbacks, just take a look at the contracts these four free agent quarterbacks signed this year:

Mike Glennon got a contract that pays him $18 million this year with the Bears.

Jay Cutler got a contract that pays him $10 million this year with the Dolphins.

Brian Hoyer got a contract that pays him $7 million this year with the 49ers.

Case Keenum got a contract that pays him $2 million this year with the Vikings.

How has that worked out? Glennon was awful and got benched after four games. Cutler was awful and may have lost his starting job yesterday. Hoyer was awful and got benched, and then cut.

And Keenum? The guy whose contract was dwarfed by those other free agent quarterbacks? Heís an MVP candidate. Yesterday Keenum had 280 passing yards, a touchdown and no turnovers, and the Vikings whipped the previously hot Rams to improve to 8-2 and maintain a two-game lead in the NFC North. Keenum wouldnít be my first choice for league MVP, but he absolutely deserves some consideration, having played very well this season after being thrown in following a Week One injury to Sam Bradford. If Keenum plays well and the Vikings keep winning, and maybe if Carson Wentz and Tom Brady have some bad games down the stretch, Keenum really has a chance to be named league MVP.

Player evaluations are Always really hard. Its not only about the player but also about surroundings and situations.

I bet he'll fold in the playoffs. Their defense can only do so much.

If one looks at Keenum's body of work it's actually very good. Teams are too eager to quit on guys like him for whatever reason. He's turning ok WR's into superstars like somebody else we know.

Re: Case Keenum shows teams canít evaluate quarterbacks

Sorry but that article is rubbish

Keenum has been in the league for a number of years and looked at the very best a mid end back up and no more.Played 10 games last year and threw for 2200 yards 9 TDs and 11 INT. There was a reason he got paid what he did and it was to be a backup while Bridgewater was being tested if he would ever play again.

His body of work was average at best.
Last year he played on a Rams team that opposing defenses just stacked the boxto stop Gurley and left the game in the hands of Keenum. Stats were roughly 220 yards a game,1 TD/1 INT

Re: Case Keenum shows teams canít evaluate quarterbacks

Keenum is having the best stretch of games he'll probably ever have in his life. Supported by a strong defense and enough playmakers around him on offense. He's been able to mask his shortcomings by not having to do too much for the most part. He'll come back down to earth and be his usual self again.
