"Hes having a really good camp," Kubiak says of Keenum. "Ill be interested to see hes going to play a lot in the preseason. Ive got to play him and T.J. a great deal."

Kubiak also notes how Yates is having some issues. "I think T.J. can throw the ball a little better than hes throwing it," the coach says. "His arm is a little tired right now. Theyre all tired. He missed a few this morning, but he made some plays.

"Hes in a very competitive situation right now with Case and that will work itself out throughout the course of the preseason."

If this was a more manipulative coach, a coach who didn't care about his players the way Kubiak does, one might argue that this simply could be a well-played ploy. A kick in the butt to a quarterback with some proven NFL experience (Yates).

Toying with his guys' emotions isn't really the Gary Kubiak way though. This isn't Rex Ryan. Kubiak doesn't just say things for effect.

No False Houston Texans Hope

Keenum has at least a shot at the No. 2 job.
There.
