It's almost as if you fanboys don't watch other NFL games. Simply comparing Keenum to Schaub is setting the bar extremely low.
After rewatching the games a couple of times, including a lot of freezed frames, pauses, rewinds and a lot of checking out the defenses called, what the QB should see, my conclusion is that Keenum played even better than I originally thought.
I will come back to play by play when I have time; I also like to wait for the All-22 angles to confirm a few things.
At the very least, Keenum more than carried his weight, even disregarding the fact that it was his first start, in one of the most hostile environment, against a great or at least very good defense.
With Schaub, it would have been a blow out; same goes with Yates.
Keenum played well enough to win the game.
He recognized the blitzes, including the overload just fine.
His decisions were very sound.
I will come back to this also.
He's going to have the chance to start more games for the Texans; I'm quite confident of that.
