  • The Case for Case Keenum.

    So 2 days ago, Case Keenum decided to stay in Houston to play for his senior year.
    Overall, the guy had a great junior year as he led in passing yards and if he continues to play that way, should we draft him in 2011 while we continue to play the 2010 season with Bulger or an FA QB?

    I'm not convinced he has a lot of potential for the next level, but he has another year to show otherwise.

      IMO, I'm not very high on the guy. He puts up big numbers because Houston doesn't really play high level teams. They play Rice for pete's sake lol.

      He plays in a spread offense, hasn't really faced big time defenses (the only time he has is in the pre-season).

        I remembered making this post 3 years ago and damn, I'm proud of the kid for stepping his game up with the Texans. Although the Texans are talented enough to make a green QB look good, I was actually dead serious about drafting this guy in the 1st round prior to drafting Bradford.

            And just like that, he's finally starting for the Rams ;)

                Re: The Case for Case Keenum.

                Was this original case for Keenum to draft him as the future franchise QB for the Rams? To me, he's always looked like nothing more than a capable backup, not starting material. I'd love nothing more than to see him light it up, lead the Rams to a string of victories, and convince everyone that he's worthy of being a solid NFL starter, but I just don't see it happening. That said, I'll be rooting hard for him to prove me wrong.

                      And even with my original analysis 5 years ago, I still believe he still gives us a better chance of winning than Foles does.

                                Keenum Has That 'It' Factor In Huddle

                                Keenum has that 'it' factor in huddle

                                10 hours ago • By Jim Thomas

                                It’s not unusual to see coach Jeff Fisher eavesdropping on the offensive huddle during practice at Rams Park.

                                “I want to hear what’s going on,” Fisher said. “It’s the quarterback’s huddle, and there’s more to operating a huddle than just calling the play.”

                                Is the quarterback reminding players about situations, down and distance? Does he have command of the huddle?

                                Case Keenum did last season, even while on the Rams practice squad.

                                “That’s one of the reasons why we brought him back,” Fisher said. “He’s got that enthusiasm and that ‘it’ factor in the huddle.”

                                Keenum was in Houston last March, either driving to or coming back from training — he forgets which — when he got the call.

                                “It was Fish on my phone,” Keenum recalled. “He said, ‘What are you doing? I just traded for you.’ “

                                When Keenum saw the tease on ESPN later that day — Rams in quarterback trade — he thought he might get some air time on SportsCenter. Alas, that was the same day the Rams swapped Sam Bradford to Philadelphia for Nick Foles. So the deal that brought Keenum here from Houston for a seventh-rounder was almost an afterthought that day.

                                Keenum is no afterthought on the Rams’ roster, however. He’s fighting for the No. 2 QB spot behind Austin Davis this preseason. And given the team’s forced reliance on backup quarterbacks lately, it’s a position of significance.

                                The Rams’ last 25 regular-season games, in fact, have been started by backup quarterbacks. Over the past four seasons, 31 of 64 Rams games, dating back to Steve Spagnuolo’s final season as head coach in 2011, have been manned by a backup QB.

                                Heading into preseason game No. 2, Sunday at Tennessee, Keenum has the lead over Austin Davis for the No. 2 job.

                                “I’m trying not to compare,” Keenum said recently. “I never compare. For me, I’m preparing to play. I’ve been around this league long enough to know that I’ve started a year as a No. 3, and I started eight games.

                                “I’ve started a year on another team, really fifth-string, and then started a couple games for that team as well. So I know that anything can happen at any point.”

                                Keenum, 27, was tremendously productive in college at the University of Houston, finishing his college career as the NCAA’s career leader in passing yards (19,127) and touchdown passes (155).

                                He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Houston Texans in 2012, spending that season on the Texans’ practice squad. In 2013, an injury to starter Matt Schaub against the Rams opened the door for Keenum to start eight games.

                                Cut by the Texans on Aug. 31, 2014 after they acquired QB Ryan Mallett, Keenum was claimed on waivers by the Rams, who needed help after Sam Bradford’s season-ending...

                                Case Keenum - QB - Rams

                                Rams claimed QB Case Keenum off waivers from the Texans.
                                Waived by Houston, which decided to go with Ryan Mallett and Tom Savage behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, 26-year-old Keenum is a natural fit behind Shaun Hill in St. Louis with a similar skill set. Keenum is sneaky athletic and willing to throw into tight windows, though he was slow to learn the Texans' offense last year. If 34-year-old Hill's performance goes south, we wouldn't be at all surprised to see Keenum make starts in the Gateway City. Keenum finished 2013 with a 9:6 TD-to-INT ratio across eight starts, though he completed only 54.2 percent of his throws and fumbled six times, losing two. We'd still expect Keenum to pass Austin Davis on the depth chart within a month or so.

                                Why Was A Possibly Concussed Keenum Allowed To Stay In The Game?

                                Keenum was obviously shaken up after his helmet bounced off the turf, then looked dazed when he got up. Why wasn't he pulled and evaluated? He proceeded to throw an errant pass to Welker, then fumbled on the next play, seeming oblivious to the pressure (no thanks to a horrible "block" by Robinson).
