The Case Keenum version of the Texans still suffers - as did the Matt Schaub version - from only playing well for 30 out of 60 minutes. Until he started throwing TDs to the other team, as least Schaub used the "good 30" to pull out some wins. Feel good stories only take you so far.
In defense of Keenum, our defense gave up 27 points on Sunday. When Schaub was playing our defense gave up about 28 PPG, however about 10 ppg was a direct result of defensive/special teams scores. So if the defense only gave up the 18 ppg they were actually giving up in the first 7 games, we win this easily. That does even take into consideration 3 missed FG and the 4th and 1 failed conversion. So the opportunities were there, but I don't believe anyone can honestly blame QB play as the reason for this loss.
