NFL execs predict Case Keenum's 2018 deal

Beitrag von smithlucky » 24. Jan 2018, 05:26

PHILADELPHIA -- Sunday night wasn't Case Keenum's night, to put it mildly, but 2017 was still resoundingly his season. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback parlayed a one-year, $2 million contract as a backup into a more lucrative future -- even if his performance in the NFC Championship Game loss knocked him down a notch or two.
With insights from agents, salary-cap managers and other insiders, we size up how much Keenum will command, what Minnesota might be thinking and where Keenum fits with his peers from a statistical standpoint. It will be interesting to Authentic Aaron Donald Jersey see how it shakes out," a personnel director said. "I think the dominoes will start falling when you see where [Vikings offensive coordinator] Pat Shurmur will go, and does he take [Sam] Bradford or Keenum? Even if Shurmur goes to New York, I think one of those QBs goes somehow."
Given how similar the Eagles and Vikings were heading into this postseason, it shouldn't be a surprise that Philadelphia stole Minnesota's narrative as part of its 38-7 blowout victory in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday evening. All year, the Vikings were the deep team who could only possibly be held back by their fill-in quarterback, only for Case Keenum to continually exceed expectations and play like a Pro Bowler.
On Sunday, with the Vikings finally possessing what most expected to ... -c-22.html be an advantage at quarterback, they were played off the field by a remarkable performance from Nick Foles. Filling in for injured MVP candidate Carson Wentz, Foles delivered the best single-game performance by any Eagles quarterback this season by both passer rating and QBR. Foles finished the game with 352 yards and three touchdowns. In the second half, he went 11-of-11 for 159 yards and 2 touchdowns, which was good for both a perfect passer rating (158.3) and QBR (99.9). That's the first time someone has Ryan Callahan Jersey done that on 10 or more attempts in the second half in more than five years.
Jubilant Eagles fans with no intention of heading to school or work this morning might very well take some time on Monday ... CHEAP.html to erase their tweets and disavow their texts from Dec. 25. Less than a month ago, it looked like Foles was going to sink a very promising Eagles season when he traded disastrous pass for pass with Derek Carr in an ugly Christmas night performance against the Raiders. Foles did just enough after a late Raiders turnover to set up a game-winning field goal, which in turn handed Philly home-field advantage for Sunday's victory. A week later, Foles started 4-for-11 with an interception before being rested for the remainder of the Week 17 game.
Across five games in six weeks, we've seen the full gamut of Nick Foles appearances. On Christmas, we saw the Foles who washed out in St. Louis under Jeff Fisher. On Sunday, we saw the guy who had one of the hottest half-seasons in league history under Chip Kelly in 2013. So how did the Eagles turn their quarterback around? And is there an early guess on which Foles we're likely to see against the Patriots in Super Captain Munnerlyn Jersey Bowl LII? I ran the numbers and watched every Foles snap from those five starts to try to identify the differences between Good Nick and Bad Nick:
Good Nick executes on manageable third downs. The most shocking thing to come out of Sunday's victory over the Vikings was what the Eagles were able to do on third down. During the regular season, Minnesota allowed teams to convert on just 25.2 percent of their third-down attempts. You won't be surprised to hear that 25.2 percent was the best rate in football in 2017, but to put things in context, the Vikings finished the year with the best third-down conversion rate on defense since 1991.
Foles carved up the Vikings on Sunday. By the time Foles threw his second touchdown pass to wide receiver Alshon Jeffery on third-and-goal to give Philadelphia a 38-7 lead, he and the Eagles had converted nine of their 11 third-down tries. One of those two failed conversions wasn't even Foles' fault, as he hit a wide-open Trey Burton, only for the backup tight end to jump and land out of bounds. Minnesota's only other stop on third down before the game was decided and Eagles fans began devising plans to climb Crisco Mountain was on a Danielle Hunter coverage sack.
The 29-year-old quarterback also pulled off the perfect passer rating and QBR feat on those third downs, going 10-of-11 for 159 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Eagles helped make it easier by leaving Foles with an average of just 6 yards to pick up those third-down tries, with only one third-and-10 along the way. In the two other games in which Foles has looked good on third down -- the Week 15 game against the Giants and last week's divisional-round victory over the Falcons -- the Eagles' offense went a combined 12-for-26 (46.2 percent) on third downs while facing an average of just under 6 yards per conversion attempt.
The Vikings also crushed themselves by failing to tackle on conversions that led to three touchdowns. Trae Waynes failed to wrap up on a Zach Ertz dig route on that third-and-10, which eventually led to a LeGarrette Blount touchdown. Anthony Barr was unable to bring Corey Clement down on a third-and-6 swing pass that should have ended a Philadelphia drive; on the ensuing third down, Foles eluded pressure and hit Jeffery for a 53-yard touchdown. And in the third quarter, when Torrey Smith squeezed out a conversion on a third-and-6 screen through the tackle attempt of reserve safety Anthony Harris, he hopped back up and scored a 41-yard touchdown on a flea flicker on the very next play. Those three possessions should have resulted in three punts, and instead cost the Vikings 21 points. basketball jerseys cheap nfl jerseys mlb jerseys china nfl jerseys wholesale cheap nfl jerseys free shipping
