Look no further than the Seattle game.
With Schaub, many players believe the season is done. With Keenum, there's a shred of hope.
I remember a point that Texans Chick made a while back: For an organization to maximize its potential, everyone from the owner to the player has to be on board with the team philosophy. If a single player isn't buying into it, that player is a weak link. I believe that also happens when a player doesn't buy into the quarterback.
