Re: Case Keenum grabs early edge in Texans backup QB
The best chance for Keenum is just to make the team as one of the backup QBs.
Brady started out as a fourth string QB.
Flutie, after a year in the CFL, joined the NFL as a fourth string QB.
Jim Zorn made it as a third string QB his first year, but was cut early.
He latched on with the Seahawks the following year.
Dave Krieg was the third string QB his first two years.
Jeff Garcia started his career in the CFL as a third string QB, and didn't make the NFL until his fifth year.
Jake Delhome was on the PS for two years before making it as a third string QB.
It doesn't matter where you start, is what I try to say.
And I honestly can't agree that Keenum was horrible last year.
A horrible QB doesn't make the PS; it doesn't compute.
