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

I was furious with Jacoby in the first half, but when he advanced the
Foster fumble he nullified that screw up (in my opinion)

In my opinion, if Keenum outplays Yates in the preseason -- specially
with Gary swapping them both in and out with the 2's and 3's then
he should get the job.

Nothing that Yates did in 2011 (or preseason 2012) has impressed
me so much that he gets "special consideration".

I'm not the "what have you done for me lately" kind of guy, but the
only thing I've seen is Yates is a .500 QB. And that's not good enough
for me.

In fact, I thought that Beck looked better in preseason last year than
Yates or Keenum.

People say that Keenum has pushed Yates to be "better". Well, if
he needs a guy behind him to get a full 100% effort then he doesn't
have the kind of killer instinct I want in a QB (a la Brady, Montana, etc.)

I say if Case beats him in preseason, the guy has earned the right to
move up the ladder.

Going from #4/practice squad to neck and neck for #2 in one off-season
has told me something about the kids desire to compete and win.

The Texans D had stopped the Ravens late in the game, giving Yates and the O an opportunity to tie it up. I think you remember the result.
