|What we can learn from Case Keenum's sta|

If you happened to be watching football with some less enthusiastic football-watching members Wade Boggs Youth jersey of your family on Thanksgiving, you probably had to explain who exactly Case Keenum was as the Vikings quarterback sliced up the Lions. Maybe your aunt remembered Keenum from his time in college or your brother-in-law in Los Angeles saw him start a Rams game last season with 35,000 of his friends. Nobody would have looked at the Thanksgiving slate before the season and figured we would be talking about Keenum the following day.
Here we are, though, and it's not to talk about the 29-year-old as a flash in the pan. Keenum has been one of the most efficient and effective quarterbacks in football this season, and though you might expect a player with Keenum's track record to cool off after a few games,
he is actually getting hotter. Two weeks ago, the Houston product dominated against Washington before throwing two late picks, which led to speculation that Teddy Bridgewater would soon reclaim his starting role. In the two games since, Keenum has thrown for 562 yards and three scores without an interception, good for a 110.0 passer rating and an opponent-adjusted QBR of 89.2.
With every week Keenum continues http://www.shopushockeyonline.com/authentic+ryan+miller+jersey.html to play at a high level, it seems more and more likely that the once-undrafted free agent will be able to keep playing this well for the remainder of the season. Keenum has become one of the most fascinating stories of this NFL season,
and his performance challenges or clarifies a lot of the theories you'll hear to explain professional football. Even if Keenum does fall back toward the pack and give way to Bridgewater, there's a lot to learn about the football universe from his role on a 9-2 Vikings team. Let's run through a few of the Keenum arguments here before we take a look at his Womens Tyler Boyd Jersey future, both inside and outside Minnesota.
It's telling that the two biggest quarterback surprises of the 2017 season were on the http://www.authenticwashingtonnationals.com/Stephen-Strasburg-Jersey same team last season and didn't play very well. Keenum began his 2016 campaign as the starter for the http://www.coltsnflofficialauthentic.com/YOUTH+SCOTT+TOLZIEN+JERSEY Rams before giving way to first overall pick Jared Goff. Keenum was mediocre, and Goff was worse. The difference in their combined numbers from 2016 to 2017 is truly staggering:
There isn't much of a reason to think that Keenum and Goff were put in position to succeed by Jeff Fisher's coaching staff. Keenum's offensive coordinator with the Rams in 2015 was Frank Cignetti, who had presided over stagnant beginnings to the careers of Aaron Brooks and Alex Smith before failing to improve Sam Bradford amid injuries. Cignetti was replaced in 2016 by Rob Boras,
the team's tight ends coach, who hadn't called plays since he served as the offensive coordinator for a below-average UNLV offense in http://www.officialdallasstars.com/Adidas-Neal-Broten-Jersey 2003. The quarterbacks coach in that two-year stretch was NFL veteran Chris Weinke, who previously worked at the IMG Academy and hadn't coached for a team at the college or professional level.
Things are different this season. Goff's breakout under new coach Sean McVay in Los Angeles is certainly no secret. In Minnesota, though, Keenum has succeeded under offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who was overmatched as a head coach in Cleveland. As an offensive mind, however, Shurmur's résumé Womens Travis Frederick Jersey includes seven years as a quarterbacks coach with Andy Reid in Philadelphia,
a promising debut season with Bradford in St. Louis and three years as the coordinator of an above-average offense under Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. Quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski, meanwhile, has survived several coaching changes in Minnesota and coached nearly every position on offense for the Vikings over the past five years, which is a tellingly rare recent history for a positional David Savard Jersey coach.
