Sign Case Keenum

September 24th, 2017

Get him.

Joe is waving the white flag. And so too should the Bucs.

Sometimes it is just better to come clean and be honest with one’s self. Face the music.

The Bucs faced a quarterback today who threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns, completing 25 of 33 passes without a pick.

Tom Brady?

Aaron Rodgers?

Ben Roethlisberger?

Philip Rivers?

No, try Case Keenum. Really.

Can you imagine?

The Bucs simply cannot stop a friggin’ backup quarterback who has roamed the NFL for years, this Keenum. Joe isn’t a believer in quarterback ratings but food for thought for those that do: Keenum, through 20+ starts, has his highest ratings against the Bucs. That was before today’s debacle. Lord only knows what is is now.

So what? Well, time for the Bucs to humble themselves. It’s clear they cannot stop Keenum, whose contract ends after the 2017 season. Keenum is 3-0 against the Bucs.

The Bucs could do a helluva lot worse than having Keenum as a backup. And with Keenum on the roster, he can’t beat them.

“He looked like the best player in the NFL,” Dirk Koetter said of Keenum after the game.

    Forget backup Keenum should be the starter.

  2. Grt2 Says:

    Here we go again

  3. Supersam Says:

    Backup? He would easily beat Winston for number 1, Winston and Fitz can compete for backup

  4. JP4 Says:

    Now THIS is a Joe opinion I can get behind. Keenum has the Bucs number, no denying it. Only way to prevent him from b!tch-slapping them is to sign him. He would be a damn sight better than old Fitz. Maybe Keenum pushes the Bucs 2nd team defense a lot more in practice, also!

  5. Grt2 Says:

    Our defensive is a joke. Jameis can’t help himself keeps turning the ball over . Same ole bucs same ole fans . Fire the cannons.

  6. Oahubuc Says:

    Lol at signing Keemun.

    Unless we are playing ourselves every week, he wouldn’t be any good.

  11. Warrenfb12 Says:

    BAck up? Keenum>Jameis

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    Better yet cut Ryan Smith since about 300 of those yards came throwing against Smith, and I’m not kidding, it’s close to 300 yards against Smith and him alone.

  13. GhosofSchiano Says:

    Could you imagine if the Saints sign im to replace brees upon retirement? SMH

  14. SteelStudBuc Says:

    Hargreaves was burnt toast too.

  15. FortMyersDave Says:

    This guy, Barry Sander and ****ing Ricky Proehl would lead a “Buc Killer” offense. Sanders of course was an all time great. Proehl and Keenum though…. HTF do they do it every time they play the Bucs?

  16. Grt2 Says:

    Hargreaves or Burntgraves?

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    VH3 was not “burnt” today – the Diggs TD he gave up he was all over him, the early pass against Thielen he was all over him – that’s not getting “burnt”. Being burnt is when you’re not even in the same area code and that’s what was happening to Ryan Smith the entire day, he was 2-3-4 steps behind on everything – that is what getting burnt in the NFL looks like.

    For the passes where it looked like VH3 was playing way off I contend that was an issue with Beckwith not getting proper drop or not being quite where he needed to be. Beckwith is a lot bigger and stronger than Kwon, but he’s also a lot slower – and that MLB spot has to cover a ton of ground. What I saw on those soft completions against VH3 was Beckwith looking like he didn’t get good depth. I could be wrong because I don’t know the exact assignments on each play but I’d guess if it was VH3s fault that Mike Smith would have yelled down to tell VH3 to play up on his man closer.

    VH3 didn’t have a good day, but give it a break comparing him to Ryan Smith – Smith wasn’t even competitive and if Keenum doesn’t miss 3 other deep passes, all on Smith, then Keenum is in the 450 yards passing range.

  18. Dreambig Says:

    Come on Rod, VH3 was terrible today. One play it was 3rd and 10, VH3 gave a 15 yard cushion and backed up from there. By the time the reciever stoped at the 1st down yardage and caught the ball VH3 was still 8 yards further down field. You can debate the term burnt all night long if you want but it wont change the fact that VH3 played really poorly today.

  19. Rod Munch Says:

    Dreambig – I know what you’re saying but what I’m saying is he was playing off by design, at least I’d hope that’s the case since it happened multiple times. I can’t imagine Mike Smith sees him playing that far off and is OK with it. On those passes, including the one you’re talking about, Beckwith was right there two – both times – and that’s why I’m saying I think Beckwith wasn’t getting his drop. I’m going based off what I saw on TV, so perhaps I’m wrong, but I think those passes were result of a sloppy zone that comes from a rookie making his first start. If it was VH3 that supposed to be there each time then I just don’t get why he was playing that far off and why the coaches didn’t correct that.

    For the two balls were VH3 got directly burned, the TD and opening long pass, he was there on coverage on both, he just didn’t make the play. To me that’s not being burnt, being burnt is what happened with Ryan Smith when he gave up the long TD to Diggs, Smith was way behind Diggs and made it an easy play.

    Keenum is more accurate, reads defenses better, and makes better decisions than Winston will ever be able to do. Winston hasn’t improved since his sophomore year at FSU. America’s Turnover Machine.

  21. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    So Bridges is still on the healing path? So when he comes back, heck yeah..Get Case!!! Then Jameis can fight for the starter job..I just can’t deal with anymore excuses..this is his 3rd year guys and gals..

  22. German Buc Says:

    OK; I was p*ssed, too about the performance of #3 – especially the last INT when five defenders were around Mike and OJ totally open, bur: Are you really calling for Jameis’ head?
    Must be great to have that loyal fans…

  23. tnew Says:

    The thing about VHIII, is that we saw really high level ball skill at Florida and in the combine. Those two plays are the kind that I want him to win and break up the pass. He looks as if the ball was an afterthought. Not even going to speak of Ryan Smith tho. He isn’t ready for the league. I’m not sure that he will be.

    Serious thought, can Justin Evans be converted into a corner. All of his movement skills indicate he can. This is a “redshirt” year for him any ways. I know it is a long shot, stupid, grasping at straws idea, but they need to do something. Not sure if Revis is the answer, but if this thing with Grimes drags, no telling what the future will hold for this team. Beckham awaits.

    German.. are you still in Germany?

  24. Mike Johnson Says:

    Say what you want..Hate what you hate..Give the man a hand..a big round of applause. QB case Keenum is a straight up Buc K-I-L-L-E-R!!! He can’t start for the Vikings. And sits all year..Until them Bucs come around. Then he..rises from the dead to slay..the Tampa Bay Bucs!!

  25. BringBucsBack Says:

    Sign Kap! Fitz is garbage; Ryan is out and Jameis might improve with real competition. Everyone is kneeling now. Are we ostracizing all of the “S.O.B’s” that participated in the kneel-down yesterday?
