Default Re: Case Keenum to start Sunday

Remember when so many people said the keenum vs Yates discussion in the pre season was not important?

Now we are hoping the kid can save our season.

I'm rabidly unsure any of the QBs on the roster are "the answer". I'm reasonably sure Schaub's best years are behind him and Yates is not the answer though. I don't think one game will positively answer the question either way on Case, so whatever happens Sunday it would be nice if he got more than one game to prove himself.

Starting Case does make the game a little more interesting

How will we know if Keenum will be an improvement? If he doesn't continue the streak of pick 6's.

That's what he is though.That's what schaub is also,but he want even looking for the other behind route. He would read andre to the slow ass te vs andre to hopkins to the te. There were a lot plays schaub refused to even look at the worse he played. The worse heplayed,the tighter he got. Hopefully case won't be in such a hurry to get rid of the ball that he don't allow the route to develop. That's the problem with sam bradford and alex smiths of the world.

I have to admit... I'm excited. I hope he destroys the Chief defense and elevates the entire offense.

I hope he has good pocket awareness, good protection and not oblivious to the blindsided rush/sack threat. If needed, we can see a nice scramble, busted play, running back-mode for Keenum - at least once!

I'm actually excited about the game now. Don't think he's going to do very well against this defense but still excited to see a new mobile QB at the reigns.

Default Re: Case Keenum to start Sunday

This is THE most excited I've been for a game in a long time.

I believe if kubiak allows case to play his own style within the offense case will flourish. But I'm mostly excited because to me this signifies that we are open to other things at the qb position. If case can't do it, draft a qb high next year.

But case is going to ball.

Kubiak didn't handcuff schaub,schaub handcuffed schaub. There were plenty of routes behind players that he wouldn't throw. Remember that pick 6 everyone blamed hopkins on vs titans? Go watch it and in fact I brought it up and blamed matt while everyone was blaming the rookie.Would've been a big gainer,maybe even a 40 yd,but matt was throwing to the sticks and the rookie read the db and was going deep.

So I wonder how many of our posters here are, in their heart of hearts, rooting for Keenum to fail, so they can be validated. People hate being wrong on things they are vested in. I have no idea why they're vested in Keenum's failure, but you can tell from the vitriol around here by a few that they are.

Hope he plays well, hope the Texans win, and hope he beats out the competition in camp next year. I can tell you that I'll be back on the edge of my seat this week, unlike the last seven quarters of football.

I don't think that's the case. I'll take success from a quarterback regardless of his college and name. I would love for Keenum to prove me wrong more than anything else. I still reserve the right to have my reservations, but I'm far more excited about this game now than I was before.
