Default Re: Case Keenum grabs early edge in Texans backup QB

Just rewatched the Cowboys game a few hours ago. All I can say about Keenum is WOW. He drops in the over-the-shoulder passes like Air McNair.

Default Re: Case Keenum grabs early edge in Texans backup QB

At this point it's all pissing in the wind anyway. Next Monday the regular season starts and Keenum is on the team. Be he 3rd string or 2nd string, either is fine with me, and long as we still got him.

Read the thread and your own words. You've stated that their is no competition this entire time and that the team won't carry 3 QB's. You have indirectly suggested it this entire time. You've also done it with very poor reasoning and logic as well.

He doesn't want to put Keenum in the same situation Yates was in two years ago, thrown to the wolves with nothing but scout team reps (Yates didn't have any reps in our system other than what he had in camp before Lienart got here).

So I believe Kubiak looks at them as 2a & 2b. There's no real "competition" Yates will be the back up & Keenum will be ready to go if needed.
...


I'm rooting for Keenum, but I'm also rooting for Tj as long as we get a guy that gives us a chance to go all the way, I don't care which.

Everything I've said since is in-line with this post.

God, I think we just need to get hot pink "Team TJ" and lavender "Team Case" t-shirts made for this entire forum.

I love Keenum's improvement. Yates has experience. Kubes made the right call, I think. But by next season, if Keenum keeps up the upward trend, that could change.

Congrats to TJ for being named #2 and congrats to both men for an excellent pre-season. I'm looking forward to seeing both play more significant roles in the future.

Like most here, except for TC, we can see the real upside of Case. I hope the Texans trade TJ and keep Case and let him groom for the next year or two.

Keenum has more upside, and I would like to see him start eventually, but the right call was made. There wasn't enough of a gap between the two in preseason to justify unseating Yates. Yates stepped it up considerably compared to last season. And this competition is going to be even more interesting next year.

Default Re: Case Keenum grabs early edge in Texans backup QB (Yates named #2)

i agree that the right call was made. yates is the safe bet to come in and run the entire offense if needed. the playbook would look slightly different with keenum i assume. i think keenum can and may be a starter sooner rather than later, but yates is probably the better backup.

call me cynical but it also helps maintain yates's value. his stock would drop quite a bit if he were demoted to 3rd string.

I think Yates could be a very good starter. We won't know until he gets his opportunity.


But I think Kubiak would love to draw up some plays for Keenum.

If I were a wagering man I'd bet there are a few already inked. I imagine Gary's been doodling for a while now.
