    This article is a whole lot of fluff based around not a lot of solid info. Taking Kubiak quotes as evidence that a player has made some signficant jump in skill or ability or decision making is dubious at best. Kubiak is famous for talking up his players to the media. I can only remember him bad mouthing someone once.

    Now, that's not to say that Case isn't every bit as good as the author suggests, just that what evidence he uses is not really all that convincing that anything has changed from last year (tracking interceptions in OTAs? Really?). I would love for Case to jump past TJ as the #2 QB because that would indicate to me that he really is looking better, but I would be surprised to see that happen.

    This. I've seen him throw the ball around 70 yards in person, he has armstrength.

    Everyone made note of Keenum's massive improvements this off season, not just Kubiak. One of the first things out of OTA's was Keenum's control of the huddle and knowledge of the plays.

    He's legitimately pushing Yates for the #2 job.

    I remember coaches/players/media talking about how much of an improvement LeStar Jean made last year too...didn't pan out to much.

    Again, I'm not saying it isn't all true, but I stopped getting really excited about OTA/minicamp developments because it is so far removed from actual game day conditions.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet, but Keenum has way more mobility than Schaub. Once Keenum can become NFL ready, the O-line does not have to be as good due to Keenum's quickness.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Keenum had several concussions? Or am I thinking of someone different?
