Like most of the people who comment about these things I'm just happy they are giving them a look. It's a good thing that the Texans are looking through the UDFA's for overlooked players. They just might find one eventually. I like Case Keenum and I'd like to think there was more to him than meets the eye. I'm not delusional about his chances though.
I'm also glad they're looking at other QBs. It's inexpensive with a potential big payoff. The SF boards probably derided posters suggesting Kaepernick over Smith. I think we should look at guys with obvious advantages over Schaub: deep ball, mobility, run threat, ability to read/react to defences, youth.
Schaub getting only one rushing 1st down last season is crazy. Db's play Schaub differently now that they don't worry about a run or deep ball.
