Yeah, yeah. Case Keenum plays his old team again and it’s a big nothing-burger. Hey like it or not, it’s a factor to consider for two reasons.
-Keenum looked scared against the New York Jets.
-Jobs may be on the line in Denver, his included.
The Broncos aren’t quite a dumpster fire yet, but given a three game losing streak and the mounting cries from the fan base for Joseph to be fired, Week 6 in Denver is about as close to “must win” as you’ll find.
It also means that Keenum needs to perform.
He also knows a game against the Rams is his best chance to show he can be the quarterback for a team shepherded by maybe one of the best of all time in General Manager and President of Football Operations, John Elway.
That’s a tall order.
I have no problem saying that I’m a fan of Keenum. He’s a gamer and a grinder. He doesn’t have the talent of a Jared Goff, so he’s always cast in the role of sometime starter while a team waits for “there guy”.
Keenum will have a good day in Week 6 if for no other reason than he knows it’s about job security and pride.
