I really don't understand this argument. "See what he's got" It really doesn't matter what he's got if we're not winning. I think there's a very good chance that Kubiak is gone if we're not in the play-offs. He may be out, if we're one & done. If Kubiak is gone, we're drafting another QB & unless Keenum wins the Super Bowl, there will be plenty of stop gaps out there that would make more sense as our starting QB.

The only reason to start Keenum, imo, is if you truly believe he can save our season. With the talent on this team & if Keenum can be our Russell Wilson/Collin Kaepernick, we should still be in the AFC Championship game & imo, that's the only thing that should save Kubiak's job.

If I'm Kubiak & I believed that, there's no way anyone other than Keenum will start in KC. But I'm not going to throw Keenum out there in any situation just to see what he's got.

I vote that we just run the wildcat all game, it'd probably score as many points as we've been scoring offensively anyway and would cut the opponent's chances of scoring on a defensive play in the game from 75% to 25%.

Yates. Starting Keenum this week would be really bad for his potential. If Keenum is worth his salt, let him go against the Colts. The Chiefs would eat him up. They are the best defense in the AFC, cause the most turnovers, have the best pass rush, and allow the least points. Don't throw him out to the wolves only to be slaughtered.

Kubiak.

It's all "on him" anyway.

DAMN IT! I hit the wrong button. I want to see what Keenum can do. If he does well, leave him in. If he sucks, well then we will at least know the Houston Texans do not have their QB for next year on this roster...

Keenum: I don't have a lot of confidence in Schaub right now and Yates looked like garbage against the Rams. For those saying give Keenum more time to prepare, he's had a year and a half to prepare to be the starter in this system. He's not going to pick up anymore of the playbook in the next week than he already knows.

If you think he's the best choice, that's fine I can get behind that. Like you said though, I don't understand waiting another week. We don't have another week. If we go down 2-5, it's over.

We're not going to the play offs. Kubiak won't be here next year, & that's another obstacle Case has got to overcome.

There is a difference between working all week or two weeks with the first team and not working with them at all. How much value you put on that meh its up to you

Agreed. Our season hangs in the balance this week. A win and we could only be 1 game behind the Colts, who have to play Denver this week, heading into our game with them.

Not enough value to go with Yates over Keenum this week when Yates hasn't played much with the first team this season either.

Keenum. Let's see what he can do, even if it is against the Chiefs in KC. It's not like Schaub (injured or not really) or Yates can do any better.

It depends on the situation:

If Ed Reed plays start Keenum.

If Ed Reed doen't play and Schaub is healthy what the heck, start Schaub. We may barely win in OT, but at least it would go as a W.

Of all of those meaningless stats out there, perhaps the most interesting of them all is the fact that the Texans haven't won a game since Ed Reed took the field.
