I think it's fairly safe to guess that the Browns, 49ers and Giants will have the top three picks this year. Considering that there are likely going to be three highly touted QBs in this draft, do you think they all go 1, 2, 3 or do any of these teams trade out of their positions? All three of them could get a monster haul, but all three probably need a QB more. The Browns already have accumulated a lot of picks and it appears that they're not sold on Kizer. The 49ers got handsome Jimmy, but how can they be sold that he's a franchise QB with such a small sample size? And Eli is clearly washed. It will be interesting to see what they do. 

 I'm guessing the Niners will likely try to trade out of that spot. Unless Handsome Jimmy just sucks eggs right off the jump.

Case looked like he was about to get benched last week. 

I think that's nonsense, he threw a couple of picks so what! The dude was the re-incarnation of Brett Favre out there on Sunday, Kase Ceenum is what I always wanted Jay Cutler to be. The picks let the Washingtons back into the game, but the Vikings were so far ahead because Keenum was droppin' change all over the field.

You roll with that dude until he either comes back to earth or gets hurt.

See above, for a reference. There are about to be so many interesting QB possibilities on the market this year. The 49'ers might like Garappolo, Cousins is in play, there's up to 3 or 4 big QB prospects, Jacoby Brisket or Andrew Luck are floating around, Eli might be looking for work, god knows there's going to be some type of exodus from Minnesota if Keenum somehow continues to play well.

Just think about the Vikings alone. If Keenum completely craters from here on out the Vikings will turn to Bridgewater, at that point Keenum will still be on the roster next year. The question then becomes how Teddy plays. If he plays well, then the Vikings are likely to retain him and Keenum in this situation leaving Bradford to look for options.

If Keenum plays well, god forbid he play well in a playoff game or two, then you could be looking at

1) The vikings trade Keenum and commit to Teddy.

2) The Vikings go with Case and Teddy hits the market.

3) The Vikings let Teddy walk and package Keenum in either a move on one of the available guys or to get their hands on one of the rookies.

 

Absolute madness!!!

I believe that the statement, ambiguously made, was that Keenum looked like a candidate for benching BEFORE the kickoff of the game against Washington.

You're out of your mind! It's a conspiracy I tell you!

Yeah, I may have misinterpreted. I thought he was talking about after the picks.

Tywin said Keenum looked like he was going to be benched "last week." Last week, if you take that to mean before the Redskins game, the Vikings were on bye, and before that, they had won 4 games straight. Candidate for benching? Naw, pretty sure Jace read it the right way. And I agree with Jace, you don't put 38 points on the board and clinch a 5th straight win this far into the season and get benched.

So I guess you're trying to make

 A Case for Keenum over troubled Bridgewater?

YEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHH!

I definitely read items during that week after the bye and before the Redskins games speculating that the Vikings were contemplating starting Teddy Bridgewater as soon as he was ready.

I know, I know, but it felt so right! Just one more little hit JA. I only want one more hit.

 

'Choose life'. 'Choose life' was a well meaning slogan from a 1980's anti-drug campaign and we used to add things to it, so I might say for example, choose... designer lingerie, in the vain hope of kicking some life back into a dead relationship. Choose handbags, choose high-heeled shoes, cashmere and silk, to make yourself feel what passes for happy. Choose an iPhone made in China by a woman who jumped out of a window and stick it in the pocket of your jacket fresh from a South-Asian Firetrap. Choose Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and a thousand others ways to spew your bile across people you've never met. Choose updating your profile, tell the world what you had for breakfast and hope that someone, somewhere cares. Choose looking up old flames, desperate to believe that you don't look as bad as they do. Choose live-blogging, from your first wank 'til your last breath; human interaction reduced to nothing more than data. Choose ten things you never knew about celebrities who've had surgery. Choose screaming about abortion. Choose rape jokes, slut-shaming, revenge porn and an endless tide of depressing misogyny. Choose 9/11 never happened, and if it did, it was the Jews. Choose a zero-hour contract and a two-hour journey to work. And choose the same for your kids, only worse, and maybe tell yourself that it's better that they never happened. And then sit back and smother the pain with an unknown dose of an unknown drug made in somebody's fucking kitchen. Choose unfulfilled promise and wishing you'd done it all differently. Choose never learning from your own mistakes. Choose watching history repeat itself. Choose the slow reconciliation towards what you can get, rather than what you always hoped for. Settle for less and keep a brave face on it. Choose disappointment and choose losing the ones you love, then as they fall from view, a piece of you dies with them until you can see that one day in the future, piece by piece, they will all be gone and there'll be nothing left of you to call alive or dead. Choose your future, Manny. Choose life.

Also, in addition to draft slots, the win was an investment in nothing. Anyone who is young and talented enough to be any part of our future is in IR, except Buckner and maybe Hyde. So basically lose-lose.

Okay, seriously -- is there some conspiracy to suppress retail recordings of the Super Bowl broadcast? All my father in law wants for Christmas is a DVD of the damn game and 3 Games to Glory isn't quite that, is it? I can't find any option to just have the TV broadcast in portable recorded form. I have it on my DVR, but that's no use. I was better off with a VHS player!

I'm probably not the guy to ask, as I have the technical electronics expertise of a badly trained chimp, but it looks like you can download a DVR recording onto a zip drive or directly onto your computer with a USB cord. Not sure what you'd do with it from there though. Burn it onto a DVD?

This, to me, is the defining post of the 2017 49ers season. When CJ Beathard is pumping my gas some day, we'll reflect back fondly on the time the 49ers overcame 2x Superbowl Champ Eli Manning and this post.

Jace read my comment correctly. It looked like Case was going to get benched in the second half after his second interception. Bridgewater was warming up on the sideline and looked like he was going in the next series. And it’s common knowledge that they want to get him in when they can.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Vikings were "very tempted" to start Teddy Bridgewater this week against the Rams.

Case Keenum got the nod following his big Week 10 performance where he threw for 304 yards and four scores, so coach Mike Zimmer really couldn't go away from him for Week 11. However, it appears the leash is very short for Keenum, and he could be pulled at the first inkling of trouble. Per Glazer, the Vikings view Bridgewater "as their franchise," so they want to get him reps now that he's healthy. Keenum could easily get yanked versus the Rams' top-end defense.

I've really been enjoying Chris Simms on PFT lately and he just called the owners '32 billionaires who have made their lives, you know... ripping people off!'

Way to go, Chris! Way to go!
