I would be shocked if Kubiak doesn't stay with Schaub at this point.

If Kubiak is still the coach then Schaub starts.

I don't think so. I think Keenum starts no matter who the head coach is.

The Texans have found a way to screw up an already bad situation . I think TJ deserves a shot now .

So, Case screwed up that bad 3.5 games in?

I missed that part I guess.....

Either way it doesn't matter anymore anyway I guess.

Default Re: so who starts next week at QB?

Keenum has more "potential" that Schaub and Yates added together. That doesn't mean Keenum is going to be our starter next year, it just means I think he's better than Schaub or Yates and for now we should stick with him.

if this is the case (lolpun) then why bench him when he wasn't even doing that bad. sometimes you have to ride out the cold streak. kubiak should be good at this for riding the schaub cold streak for all those weeks....


has kubiak come out with post game comments yet?

I think Keenum starts. As a matter of fact, I'll bet on it.

I agree. I think this was Kubiak's way of giving Schaub one last shot at reclaiming the job. But he failed.

Default Re: so who starts next week at QB?

Kubiak is trying to save his job, and the only remote possible chance of doing that is if he starts winning games and miraculously makes playoffs, and advances to the AFC championship game at least.

So I don't blame him one bit for making a decision that will help him win NOW. I know most of us consider this season a lost cause, we want to look the future, and we want to see if Case is part of that future. But if they keep losing, then Kubiak will certainly have no future here.

While Case has shown a lot of promise and potential, he still hasn't won a game, and we were clearly heading to our fourth loss against the Raiders. So I don't blame Kubes one bit for taking a gamble on Schaub and try to win the game.

As for next week, I suspect it will be another call late in the week. I give it 50/50 for either to start. And regardless of who starts, I give us a 50/50 chance of beating the crappy Jags at home!

I actually see it the opposite way. I think the only chance Kubiak had at keeping his job was if Keenum was seen as the next QB and that he could flourish under this system and Kubiak's tutelage.

When Kuibiak put Schaub in, it was as good as a signed resignation. Kubiak's not coming back. There is no longer an argument for his return.

That's the same way I see it. The fans would probably have given Case a pass if we lost that game with Case under center. They might not have liked it, but most would probably accept Kubiak in 2014 (the last year of his contract) as the best chance for Case to succeed here in Houston.

By pulling him & putting Schaub in the game, he pretty much said Case isn't the future & if Case doesn't have a future here, Kubiak has long over stayed his welcome.

& this is why I think Case would have got a pass if he finished the game & we still lost. We're way past the first sign of trouble.
