He is the editor.

And he's the same douche who called JJ Watt "pizza boy".

Yes, Case Keenum has improve from last year because he was horrible last year. And yes, Kubiak is pushing TJ to be better because he wants to create a sense of competition and urgency.

The article sounds like it was written by his dad or agent or something.
No, it's not a great piece of writing, but it's way more entertaining the way you put it.

But saying "Case Keenum grabs early edge" when he's not taking the vast majority of 2nd team snaps is a fart noises article. Just seeing the headline makes me angry because I think it is affirmatively misleading to people who cannot see most of this themselves.

I agree that saying Keenum "has the early edge" as the Texans backup seems like an overstatement. Especially considering they haven't played a preseason game yet. But I don't see the "overly fawning pile of ****" you are referring to. He talks about Keenum and uses a couple of quotes from Kubiak. And while TJ may be taking the majority of 2nd team snaps, does that mean that much at this point? Keo is getting the majority of 1st team snaps over Swearinger, and I don't think anyone believes that will stand when the season begins. I just don't see the outrageousness in this that you seem to.

To be fair, there was a room full of Texan fans booing Watt when he was selected. Most are now wearing 99 jerseys.

at practice Friday TJ Yates looked terrible. Case actually is perfect for this system and I hope if Schaub were to go down for any stretch of time we would have a qb in there who can continue to run the same offense with no restrictions

Someone on 610 after practice was saying that they heard Kubiak say that Yates is showing no arm strength.

Steph generally does a really good job reporting on the Texans and we all appreciate her. When it comes to Case though she is obviously biased against him for some reason. In the end she may be correct but, for me, my money is on Case and he's a better game performer than practice performer. Let the preseason begin!

I agree she's biased against Case as well. Steph does do a good job. She's said the TJ has looked better than last year. There's actually conflicting reports on that. A friend saw TJ recently and he looked off. PLus she mentions that while Case has improved, it's expected. There's a real competition between Case and TJ and I just think it helps the team.

Actually, what she's been saying is "don't read too much into things" as practice updates are relayed. Practice reps aren't always meaningful indicators. This isn't her first rodeo, and she knows it's best to remain prudent in assumptions/predictions at this stage.

It's an easy hook to get page clicks to hype up a "Local Boy Strikes It Big" headline.

It's also easy to get caught up in groupthink -- media types congregate together at practices.

Steph avoids both of those pitfalls, which means she has integrity and experience. It's not bias against a player -- it's just she's not seeing it. And she's not alone. LZ and Seth haven't declared Case the #2.

Case has made huge strides. He knows the offense now. Everyone sees that. Tweeter-dee and tweeter-dum extrapolate that into a QB controversy. Pffft. Who's the most popular QB in town? The backup. In this case - excuse the pun - it's the local boy backup. It's early. Let's see how it plays out against other teams.

So what you're saying is don't get too excited when they run the "Keenum seizes inside track to unseat Schaub" story later in the week?

You're thinking of Tania Guglamoogli.... Steph is not a reporter, she's a fan like you & me who has devoted her time to write a blog, work with the chron to get media credentials so she can get access to places you & I can't go.

But, as far as I know, she's not getting paid. She's doing it to help you get the info you want.
