With another coach coming in though & with what we saw from our QBs in 2013, I can't imagine not drafting a QB in the first or second round of the draft. If that happens, then Case's time in Houston has passed.
Same for Tj. OB is going to bring in his own guy & while it might be a fair competition to see who starts for us in 2014, Case/Tj are on their way out. Best thing for either of them now, is that they earn the starting job (which I do believe is up for grabs) & make the most of their opportunity. It might be six games, it might be eight games, if they're lucky & we're beating up on the chumps we've got on our schedule, maybe they can get a whole season out of it.
But they're just a place holder for whoever we draft in 2014... that's if we get someone in the first two rounds. Like I said, I can't see us not drafting a QB in the first two rounds, but if we draft someone in the third, or later, I can see a Case Keenum, Tj Yates, or even Fitzpatrick sticking around a little longer.
and pretty much every fan in Houston agrees with that, but starting Keenum was more a McNair decision to spark a down fan base. McNair has this infatuation about hometown boys becoming hometown heroes and the reality is they end up being more pumpkin than hero...
I could see Yates and Fitzzy battling it out for the #1 and Rookie is #3, meaning what you said, Keenum on his way to probably Cleveland or Baltimore...
