Kellen Moore has played in many big games. He has beat big schools like Oregon, Georgia, Virginia Tech, TCU and so on. He has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and has been featured on Jon Gruden’s ESPN show. The man has even traveled to New York as part of the Heisman Trophy ceremony. So he took his 50-3 record as a collegiate player to the NFL.
Now flash forward to the present and Moore is with his second NFL team and still waiting for his first regular season snap. While in Detroit Moore was stuck as fourth string QB and currently with Dallas he is back up to the atrocious Matt Cassel. As soon as Dallas signed the former BSU superstar Broncos fans wanted to see him as Tony Romo’s back up. He ended up on the Cowboys practice squad and was called up when Romo first hurt his shoulder. Brandon Sweden got the starting gig as Kellen was named backup. Then the Cowboys traded for Matt Cassel moving Kellen back down to the practice squad. Since then the Dallas Cowboys have turned into the NFL’s version of a soap Opera. Weeded was horrible, Cassel was horrible and Romo returned and then left again after yet another injury. So now the Cowboys have decided to do their version “re-dating an ex” and let Cassel start again. There is a reason why things didn’t go well the first time, Matt Cassel just isn’t very good.
So the young man with a NCAA record of 50-3 is forced to sit and watch this train wreck. Players, fans, announcers and I’m sure come coaches are waiting to see what he has. The Cowboys are hanging on to this 1% chance they still have a shot. But the truth is if Cassel was good they would be leading this dumpster fire of a division they are in.
So #freekellen was born. It is being posted by Boise fans, Cowboys fans and fans of football that are tired of seeing what the Cowboys are putting out on the field. Kellen has to get a shot right? Anyone who has seen him play knows he can play and play good. The kid has the talent and has put in the work to be an NFL QB. He has played and beat the PAC12, SEC, and the BIG12. In 4 years he only lost 3 times and 2 of those losses where due to missed field goals. Yes he’s short, no he can’t thrown the ball 80 yards with the flick of his wrist, but that hasn’t seemed to bother Russell Wilson or Drew Brees. Kellen can play and he deserves a shot. If anything just see what this kid has. Stranger things have happened. Would Tom Brady have ever got a chance if Bledsoe had never gotten hurt??
