Default Re: Case Keenum grabs early edge in Texans backup QB

To be honest, the biggest problem I think Keenum will have
is that he is not a good practice-time player.

Never has been.

Under Art Briles he couldn't separate himself from a guy
named Blake Joseph in practice in 2007. Joseph later
transferred to a D1-AA school and was unremarkable.

Under Sumlin he had to split time during practice with
multiple QB's without any distinction.

It wasn't until he got on the field, and got into the action
that his coaches were able to see the talent he had.

I don't think Gary operates that way. I think Gary needs
a guy to look like a pro-bowler in practice before he
trusts him in game situations.

That could be Keenum's achilles heel. And if TJ puts on
a good practice or two in a row it could spell more bench time
for Keenum.

The only fear that I have is that Gary will be silly enough
to put him on the practice squad. My nightmare is to have
Case running a touchdown back against the Texans for
another team (a la Vince Young with the titans)

TJ
