Re: Case Keenum grabs early edge in Texans backup QB (Yates named #2)
i agree that the right call was made. yates is the safe bet to come in and run the entire offense if needed. the playbook would look slightly different with keenum i assume. i think keenum can and may be a starter sooner rather than later, but yates is probably the better backup.
call me cynical but it also helps maintain yates's value. his stock would drop quite a bit if he were demoted to 3rd string.
