LOL, what are you talking about now..
Case was basically brought in as a UDFA flier/camp arm... that's not exactly just keeping him here, because he's a hometown boy
and Sorry, it's not really "wishful thinking or hoping" to assume another team would of took a flier on him if we didn't when plenty of "system QBs who had high production in college" (which is what Keenum was pegged as) get shots ALL THE TIME
to participate in NFL camps and gasp.. some even make the rosters
(should I continue)
yeah, I'm really stepping out on a ledge to assume that another team would of signed him as a UDFA and brought him in to their camp his rookie season. Hell if Stephen "Fing" McGee could of hung around as long as he did and get picked up by multiple teams.. a team would've taken a flier on Case Keenum. Just because he was undrafted does not mean Kubiak was his only shot to get a try out... and he did earn every opportunity he's been given here. All we did was give him a invite.. he then earned his way to the practice squad, then in his second season he made so much improvement he made it impossible for the Texans to risk sneaking him through waivers and EARNED a roster spot.. but I guess that's because he's just a hometown boy right?
I'm really getting sick of people acting like there's some cult following of Case here. To a certain extent I'm sure there's UofH fans rooting for him. I'm not a UofH fan. I'm a Texan fan who's watched option A and B play like absolute hammered dog crap. Especially option B, who's completely healthy.. at least option A has a probable chronic injury to blame his diminished skills on. (Diminished skills.. as in won't return to form)
It seems like every time anybody even mentions Case you get your undies in a bundle, because your precious Schaub is threatened. Case may not be the answer and right now nobody knows if he is or isn't, but I do know that Schaub and Yates are NOT and never will be. Yates is a fringe career backup and Schaub is a 32 yo QB, who's body is much older than his actual age due to injuries and his already lack of athleticism. His best days are clearly behind him. So yes, I want to see Case get a shot and if that doesn't work out, then the future answer is NOT on this roster.. draft a QB high in next years draft
