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.
I don't think he played bad nor well. Case was a neutral player today. He wasn't why they lost,but he didn't do enough to help the team win. He made some throws that were completitions that were poor throws. I expect it from a yound player.
Be a student of the game, not a fan.
