I only post this because 790 was having a discussion on how dumb Obrien was to sign a statue like Johnson who has not played for four years instead of a mobile QB.
Yes, GW is only 5’10.5" and around 185. And he does not own a cannon for an arm.
But I keep seeing BOB sign these guys who were 55% passers in college ()Mallet Osweiller and Savage) before they sign Watson. Your % does not go up from college to the pros.
Watson’s success was that he was not a statue and could buy time behind a weak line. Which kind of sounds like GW when he took over for JOK. And GW has an accurate arm completing close to 70%.
And for those that say he is not even close to being in the same league as Watson that is what they said when we lined up against OK and Mayfield, and Louisville and Jackson. Yet all he did every game was outperform those other QBs.
Throw in the fact he has the “it” factor and I would bet money with a few weeks under center he would do well.
Keenum finally got a chance on a decent team and he shines. I just think Rick Smith and BOB are too stupid to even consider it…based on the retread they picked up.
