Re: Andre's thoughts on Keenum
Here are TJ's first start numbers vs. Atlanta in 2011: Texans won 17-10
12-25, 48%, 188 yards, 7.5 average, 1 TD, 3 sacks for 13 yds., 2 rushes for 10 yards.
Nothing special, but I remember when he was brought in during the Jacksonville game I was thinking, 3rd string QB in, season is over. Well his numbers were not great, but he got us into the playoffs.
So now we speak about Keenum, 3rd string QB and people say he never has seen the speed of a real game, well TJ never did either when he was brought into the Jags game, and he managed. Atlanta was a good team when Yates got his first start and the Texans beat them with TJ, so why can't Keenum beat KC if he started. Nobody knows the heart of someone until they are up against something, and yes, Houston still needs to look for a QB in the draft, but until the offseason, let's give this kid a shot, can he do any worse than the 2 in front of him... can he do any better?? That is to be seen, but even if it just a placebo effect that the other 52 guys buy into, that is all that is really needed now to get this ship back on course...
