  • Viktor Arvidsson Jersey

    Case Keenum was never a highly sought commodity in his NFL career. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent Ryan Callahan Jersey , has been cut twice, once got traded for a seventh-round draft pick, and finally became a starter last year because two other quarterbacks were hurt.
    So when Keenum became a free agent this offseason and a Hall of Fame quarterback in John Elway wanted to make him the Broncos’ starter, he finally felt like he’d made it.
    “When my phone rang and it was John Elway telling me to come sign with the Broncos, it feels pretty good, especially as a kid growing up an Elway fan,” Keenum said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. “We actually talked first when I got to Denver. It was great. Walking into his office there and it’s John Elway behind the desk. It’s Big John. He’s definitely a presence, obviously one of the greats that ever played the game. There’s a lot of tradition and history there, and a lot of it is because of him. It’s a cool atmosphere, a cool organization, and I’m just happy to be a part of it.”
    The last time Elway signed a free agent to be the Broncos’ starting quarterback, he hit a home run with Peyton Manning. It may not be realistic to think Keenum can have that kind of success in Denver Viktor Arvidsson Jersey , but Elway is confident he’s found the right man again — and Keenum appreciates a Hall of Famer having confidence in him.
    Experience could be the Atlanta Falcons’ big edge as the only team in the NFC playoffs for the second straight year.
    Coach Dan Quinn says that advantage was a factor in Saturday night’s 26-13 wild-card win over the Los Angeles Rams.
    One year after advancing to the Super Bowl, the Falcons are ”a battle-tested brotherhood,” according to Quinn, who added Sunday ”That kind of experience I thought certainly showed up last night.”
    After showing impressive poise against the Rams, Atlanta will play next Saturday’s divisional round game at Philadelphia.
    ”We’re not here just to get here,” quarterback Matt Ryan said after the game. ”We want to make noise while we’re here, so this is what it’s all about. It’s about giving yourself the opportunity this time of the year to compete and play in games like this and win games like this.”
    The Falcons are only the No. 6 seed, making the playoffs on the final weekend of the regular season with a home win over Carolina. Even so, Quinn senses his team, boosted by last year’s long postseason run, is peaking at the right time.
    ”It helps because the guys who were in (last year’s playoffs) have this experience and know how to separate your preparation and make sure the only battle you’re in is this one,” he said, adding that one-game focus ”doesn’t allow you to look too far back … and we’re certainly not thinking about anything past this week.”
    Quinn said the win over the Rams Malik Jefferson Jersey , who lacked the Falcons’ playoff experience , may have been Atlanta’s most complete game of the season.
    Atlanta’s improved defense held the NFL’s highest-scoring offense to one touchdown. Matt Bryant kicked four field goals – giving him nine without a miss in his last two weeks.
    The Falcons’ only touchdowns came on a 4-yard run by Devonta Freeman and a late 8-yard pass from Ryan to Julio Jones. But holding the ball for more than 37 minutes kept the Rams’ offense off the field, and that dominance made up for a lack of big plays.
    ”We’re equipped to play however we need to win that game and I do love that about this group,” Quinn said. ”For this game, what was required was to have more run attempts. I thought it would be a difference in the second half and certainly it was.”
    Quinn compared his current ”battle tested” team to a time early in last year’s playoffs when he stopped practice because he thought ”the guys were tight.”
    ”We kind of loosened up after that,” he said, adding he believes this year’s team ”started our push” following a loss to New Orleans on Dec. 7.
    ”There’s been a shift that’s taken place with our team, their readiness, their mindset, their belief, their support of one another is really at a strong point for this 2017 team and we’ll need that kind of mindset again this week.”
