I can understand badboy's reaction. This is a very important part of the season for some, the college football fans, the draftniks, and those who are emotionally "involved" with the development of this team, among others.

JB's comment comes across insulting, as if their interest are misporportionately applied to trivial matters.

50 posts is not a big deal, but it shows that their are people interested.

It takes all kinds to form a community

True enough. It would be totally boring if we all agreed all the time.
but there's no likelihood of that.

Bad match-up for Ducks who have faced dominant QB's in each of last three bowl appearances, Cam Newton (6-5 248) Terrelle Pryor (6-4 244) Russell Wilson they defeated/contained (5-10 203) then Collin Klein (6047 226) who they forced to beat them with his arm. This is what most people remember, forget his front running Heisman hopes prior to end of season collapse. He possess great vision & feel for the pocket. Sure he is more a thrower than a passer who hesitates in his delivery into tight windows but players respond to him, he can create & if Plummer/Kubiak can simplify his release he could be at least a serviceable back-up, giving Texans something they never had a running QB.
David Carr was a running QB lol

No matter what OL you put in front of Tony Romo, it's going to look suspect, because of the way Romo handles himself in the pocket. The biggest difference between Carr & Romo, is that Carr had a somewhat decent running game & a hall of fame WR (maybe), but still couldn't consistently manage scoring drives.

Undrafted free agent Collin Klein was originally one of the Texans most interesting picks of the 2013 campaign. Playing as a runner up in the Heisman Trophy contest a year ago, Klein stood a chance at making the Texans’ roster this season, but walked away from rookie mini-camp on Sunday empty handed.

In the end the decision came down to Gary Kubiak, who told Fox 26 that he liked what he saw out of Klein, but obviously not enough to give him a contract.

Throughout the lead up to the draft, Klein was urged to possibly switch positions to either running back, wide receiver or tight end, given his athleticism and strong footwork. Instead, Klein stayed stubborn and stuck to passing, and probably landed with the wrong team considering the Texans already have enough quarterbacks lining up for a spot on the roster.

Klein looks likely to stay true to his word and remain a quarterback. He’s on the search for another team, which normally leads to the Jets.

When I read BLs comments I was thinking we still have to see if Keenum or McGee makes the 53.

I doubt we'll keep 4 QBs, so the only question is whether Kubiak feels good enough about Keenum/McGee to carry three on the 53 man roster. If not, then Keenum will have to pass waivers.

If Keenum shows up in the preseason like he's being built up to, chances are slim that he'll make it to the practice squad.

However, if he decides neither are good enough for the 53 I'm sure we'll reach out to Klien to go on the PS.


OT: If Kubiak decides not sign Keenum to the 53 & he makes it to the PS again, then we'll just have to come to terms with the fact that he is not the guy we want him to be.
