2nd game: 12/24, 86 yds, 0TD, 0INT, 4 sacks for 17 yds, QB rtg 58.7, 2 fumbles lost

3rd game: 33/54, 364 yds, 2TD, 0INT, 3 sacks for 19 yds, QB rtg 93.4, 2 fumbles, 0 lost

4th game: 16/20, 202 yds, 3TD, 0INT, 0 sacks, QB rtg 148.3, 0 fumbles

5th game: 25/38, 203 yds, 2TD, 4INT, 2 sacks for 20 yds, QB rtg 57.1, 1 fumble, 0 lost




For anyone who misses the obvious point, 5 games in is still evaluation time. It takes the best QBs a while to figure it out.
Of course, someone could also post the stats of promising QB careers of someone like:

Scott Mitchell
Robb Johnson,
Matt Flynn,
Derek Anderson,
Shane Matthews, etc...

Evaluating a QB is very complex. The great thing about the Texans' situation with Keenum, is that he is dirt cheap for this year and the next two years after that, which means we can easily afford to bring in more QB talent to compete with him or simply to hedge our bets... It is the one bright spot from this disaster of a season... well, that and high draft picks.
