Re: Former University of Houston QB Case Keenum agrees to a contract with the Texans
In my opinion, the only thing that can hold Keenum back is if he has a hard time adjusting to the speed of the game.
I think the vast majority of people on here are thinking about this in entirely the wrong way.
We, as Texans fans, don't need Keenum to be better than Manning, Brees, or Rodgers (or RGIII or Luck for that matter).
We just need him to be better than Schaub and Yates.
Why? Because this team almost made it to the AFC championship game, and if we had a QB that can make the throws and:
1) not take sacks/injuries (IE: Schaub)
2) not turn the ball over in big situations (IE: Yates)
The Texans take that next step and possibly win a championship.
Case is exactly the type of person we need -- not brittle, good decision maker, and careful with the ball.
If he can translate those skills to the pros we're in for a great ride.
If not, then at least a local kid got his shot..
