Learning the system for two years running it in practice > using a system nobody knows but keenum in practice for 1 week.
They've told you a couple of times already but here it is again. He does not run this offense in practice. He runs a "simulation" of what the next opponent's offense will do.

I saw yesterday as being something of a mash up of what Keenum did know well of our offense and what Gary could give him that was familiar. You saw as much of Sumlin's old offense as the rest of the Texans starters were capable of absorbing in the short period of time they had. Not as much of the Texans offense as Keenum could master in that same amount of time. I imagine that we would have seen more of our usual if our RB's had been effective/healthy. Instead by the fourth quarter all we had to turn to was the UH stuff.

Makes me kind of wonder if they'll take a couple of weeks now to get Keenum up to speed on some more of what the Texans do regularly. They've got two weeks. I hope they put it to good use.
