There always has to be someone that has to sound ugly after a terrible accident. Well, I have chosen to be that someone. While others make their politically correct responses, I will tell you my not so politically correct response, as to why the Rams left Case Keenum in the game, but first, let set the scene.
We all know that they had two quarterbacks suited for the game. They would be Case Keenum the starter, and Nick Foles his backup. They listed Sean Mannion, third string backup QB, inactive.
So they go to Baltimore with just two quarterbacks. One of those quarterbacks just happened to have been benched earlier in the week, Foles. Move forward towards the end of the game where Keenum takes a nasty shot.
As Keenum laid on the turf holding head, one has to imagine the panic that overtook Fisher and his staff. What do I now? raced through his mind. Do I have to go with the other dufus that I just benched?
He sent his head trainer out on to the field who returned with the good news that Keenum said that he felt okay. Fisher felt relieved by not having to send in Foles, as well as no one else was the wiser of what just happen.
But as Karma would have its way because that ignored concussion could have just cost the Rams the game. Keenum’s last fumble could have been the after effects of his hitting the turf. Watch the video of the hit and see him wobble as he gets up.
I don’t if what I just written about why Fisher left Keenum is true. Don’t lie though because you probably thought that same thing when you first heard the news of Keenum’s concussion.
