Living in Los Angeles, it is easy to get lost in all of the noise surrounding the city. When the Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles, many were expecting Hollywood stars to be out in full force at their games, and some figured it would boost the players’ profiles as well. While the stands have been full of the Hollywood elite, a certain quarterback believes he may be forgotten.
Case Keenum was a record-setting quarterback in his time with the University of Houston, but since he came to the NFL, he has faced his fair share of tribulation. Now, his team’s move from the middle of the country to the west coast has given him further challenges.
In an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, Keenum was asked how often he is noticed. The answers are pretty surprising.
The saddest part is when Patrick pushes Keenum and asks if he would be noticed even in full Rams uniform. Keenum replies “everyone is dressed up out there, they would think I am just part of the crowd out there.”
Anonymity isn’t all that bad, though. Keenum has led the Rams to a 3-1 record and a first place spot in the NFC West. If Keenum continues to impress the way he has, I am sure plenty of people will know who he is and make sure he is stopped for a cursory picture. Maybe staying anonymous wouldn’t be a bad move after all.
The Dan Patrick Show airs Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to noon Eastern on AT&T/DirecTV’s Audience Network, NBCSN and radio affiliates.
