Case Keenum: Loser

A week ago we were talking about the Broncos as a wildcard team, and now we are talking about how early they can pick in the draft if things finish out like they looked Sunday.

The Broncos went into Sunday’s game as easy favorites over the San Francisco 49ers. It was supposed to be an easy win for them, as the 49ers are well in the running for the first overall pick in the draft. Instead it was anything but that as the Broncos didn’t even score until the third quarter.

Much like he has been all season, Case Keenum was unspectacular. Granted, he was without Emmanuel Sanders and had a rookie group of receivers, but Keenum stunk. He completed under 60 percent of his passes for just 186 yards. He did manage to throw one touchdown very late in the fourth quarter, but it was an otherwise uninspiring performance.

Last week I wrote about how I think the Broncos should give Keenum one more shot next year. However, if he continues to play like he did Sunday, the Broncos will have no choice but to try and replace him this offseason.
