Default Re: What does Keenum have to do to convince you he's the guy going forward?

The only expectations I have of keenum is to not the lousy eff up QB Schaub has become. Asking him to not be as bad as Schaub is not exactly shooting for the stars.
It's funny how you think if you call it asinine, that it somehow makes your opinion more relevant. Name calling is a sign of weakness, and a very weak argument. Don't try to pretend like there have not been tons of calls for VY before, even now, so yea. Hometown boy BS.

Then there is the fact that you yourself probably brought up a time or two when you accused Kubiak if being loyal to a fault, so how could he stay loyal to Schaub and pickup VY?

look at schaub's play the last 4 games, and Tj Yates, if Keenum can do better than that and put the fight against the best D in football, Im hopeful of the kid's future.
Well nobody has used those actual words that I am aware of, but certainly that is the insinuation, that all he needs is a chance and he will set the NFL world on fire. Yeah it's 4 games in a 16 game season. You have allot of IF's in your scenarios, and IF's works both ways.

What IF Schaub was healthy and beat the Chief like he has done before?, and what IF Schaub then went on to beat the Colts? The Texans would then be leading the AFCS assuming the Colts lose to the Broncos (Which they will). What IF every time I farted a deposit of 1 million dollars magically appeared in my bank account? IF, IF, IF, IF, IF!

Of course they will, regardless whether they should or not. Because he is the home town college hero, and many have praised him as if he is the 2nd coming of Drew Brees even though he has never taken a snap against the 1's in a regular season game, they will give him a pass and blame everything on Kubiak if it goes wrong. You know it's true.

If the defense or special teams sh!ts the bed Sunday of course I will not blame Keenum for it.
Here is a perfect example of what I am talking about. Now the scoreboard does not matter, and if the D ****s the bed it is not Keenum's fault, even though the D has **** the bed several times this season, it's still only Schaub's fault. But eventually, IF Keenum does not win, or weave the magic so many think he will, they will eventually turn on him too. It's just what some Houston fans do. Been doing it for decades.

Its not suppose to be that way. QB is the one that's suppose to carry the burden. Just look at what Tom Brady is doing in New England. Look at what happened when Peyton left the colts. They barely won a game.

QB position is that important yet its the most neglected position in the history of the texans.
Wait... Was everything perfect for Schaub in the "Next Man Up" season? Was the special teams playing perfect? You confuse "Schaub needs good OL play" with "everything needs to be perfect for Schaub to play well". Schaub has performed many times when things were not perfect. Pretty sure things were not perfect in the San Diego game this year either, nor were they in the Seahawks game, yet he still was carving the so called number one D to pieces in the first half, but I know, it was just the Seahawks playing poorly, not Schaub playing well, right?

You guys just keep taking your shots at Schaub, but at least have the courtesy to include some reality in there somewhere, not just Anti-Schaub propaganda.
