When presented a couple of years ago with the evidence that they were separated at birth, both twins accepted the conclusion philosophically. “I always felt I had a twin out there somewhere. It was just a feeling I couldn’t explain,” the younger twin once told a reporter. “It was like the feeling you get when you throw a hook route to someone who ran a deep post.”
Case Keenum seemed to concur. “Sometimes I just scream ‘You like that!’ for no particular reason.”
Even their NFL careers have paralleled in many ways. The younger twin played only 14 games in this first three years. Case Keenum played only 10. But their careers have taken off more recently, and each had a very successful year last year. Last year’s NFL passing statistics help prove this fact:
Player Team G Comp Att Yard TD INT Rating
Younger Twin WAS 16 347 540 4,093 27 13 93.7
Case Keenum MIN 15 325 481 3,547 22 7 98.3
The elder twin played quarterback for the Vikings last year, and the younger twin will play quarterback for the Vikings this year. “It’s become a family tradition”, noted the younger twin, “kind of like handing down an old pair of jeans.”
Did you guess Case’s mystery twin? If so, consider yourself a super fan.
It only SEEMS like they are twins because of all the similarities.
