If Newton could block a fly this would all be mute, he is HORRBILE, and a majority of the sacks given up appear to come from the man he is blocking. I want Harris to start in place of Newton.

I think Kubiak should shoulder some of the blame for the Matt Schaub injury cheering.

NObody wants to see anyone get hurt & sometimes the fans are just plain wrong. But if Kubiak would have shown some "give-a-sht" Benching Matt at the end of the Seattle game & at the end of the San Francisco game (instead of just throwing in the towel the way he did)... the crowd wouldn't have been so anxious to move on. They'd have known it was a matter of time. But Kubiak gave them no choice but to hope something forces Kubiak's hand & it was going to have to be something more drastic than giving the other team the ball.

It's classless..... I didn't appreciate it. I thumped my daughter to make her stop. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't understand it. & I know my wife was doing cartwheels at home.

No, Nitro is on the money. He could throw a safe pass leading the TE & RB away from the coverage. He also could have thrown it over either receivers head..... uncatchable to effectively get around an intentional grounding penalty.

The 2nd worst thing that could happen there (a pick 6 would have been the worst) was to fumble it there, recovered by the other team & that's what happened. If you're honest about it, it turns an otherwise amazing first time start into something a little more mundane (considering it was his second sack fumble). & there are some here that don't want to believe Case's first start, though promising, was more mundane than amazing.

There used to be people here who would complain because Mario Williams would allow a tackle... a RT to run him completely out of a play. That's exactly what happened to Houston right there. He's run completely out of the play. Only problem is that he & Keenum keep playing & Newton didn't.

That was a 3 step drop, the ball should have been gone.

Newton should play to the whistle... that's the kind of spark you'd expect a QB change such as this would provide, but he didn't. Which brings me back to lip service.

Was there a spark on this team?

This teams biggest issue since week 1 has been lack of effort. This teams issue since last year's Jags game has been lack of effort. You watch the Patriots & Packers & Vikings & Colts whip our a55es & it's because they played with more effort than we did. Shane Vareen & Steven Riddley & a bunch of LBs no more talented than our group out efforted us against the Pats, twice.

We can't score from 1st & goal from the 1, that's lack of effort on our part. DeAndre's a rookie, Case is just starting so my criticism of that failed play is more observation than anything else. But a little more effort from either player & that's 6 points.

Graham's failed opportunity.... a little more effort & that's 6 points. Defensively, if they played with the effort they had in the 2nd half, those 80+ yard TD drives are punts at the very least, turnovers with a little effort, defensive scores with the spark we needed.

Was there a spark..... yes, but nowhere near what we needed. There was a lot to overcome, I'm not saying any different. First time starter, ferocious pass rush (but KC was having protection issues of their own before the game started), Arian out early in the 1st, Ben was useless even before he got hurt, Cushing out...... Manning out. But we gave up that last sack on a 3 man rush, not because Newton sux..... I'm not saying he doesn't.... but because of lack of effort. & that's what cost us that game, & the St Louis game & the San Francisco game, & the Seattle game, & the Baltimore game.

They can say they support this QB, or that QB. They can say they've got his back, they can say he's not out there alone, or that "The fans don't want to hear us talk about it." It's what they do on the field that counts. Anything else, is lip service.

What makes you believe that was a three step drop and the ball was supposed to come out?

All the receivers are still running vertical. Look at where the sticks are, the time left in the game....a quick pass there doesn't make any sense if we are talking about the same play.


As far as was there a spark? Yes there was.

Case should start after the bye.

On the play in question, I think getting beat by a 3-man rush is far more egregious than the sack/strip. Pathetic by the OL. It was perhaps Keenum's biggest error of the game - he was so totally focused downfield. I'm sure he will get coached-on for these situations and be better the next time for it....

Goes without saying he did a lot more good things than bad in the game. Should his only serious mistake be hammered into everyone's consciousness? I don't think so....

Schaub, for his part, remains mum on the topic. He hasn't spoken to the media since Kubiak announced Keenum would start in Kansas City. But during the open part of practice Tuesday, Schaub was moving around without any readily apparent limitations.
Hopefully it means he knows he is done for.

I want to see the adjustments with case. I want to see better reads by case the next time around against a blitz. off line didn't do well, coach could read the blitz's, and so with keenum.

with that said, the guy (can't remember the name) that worked with case for the combine (he also worked with romo and some other great qb's) said that case was the smartest QB he's worked with.

case is a great QB in the making. I want to beef up the off line and get some linebackers. draft a low QB too..

you don't win a championship in high school, break several NCAA records, do great in the preseason and play against the best defense in the chiefs and call it a fluke. if the Texan's can commit that Case is the man, the team can move forward and not be in limbo.

Also, no one is open. What Keenum is definitely guilty of here is waiting for something to develop. You can't do that on your own goal line. He's trying too hard.

This is a great in-detail, honest, unbiased analysis, including multiple supporting illustrative screenshots, of the KC game and Keenum's play and Kubiak' play calling......A must read!

Kubiak may be well-served by giving Keenum another shot, whether Schaub is healthy or not. He’s shown obvious inexperience, and things will become more complicated as opposing defensive coordinators get more tape on him, but it’s pretty clear that he brings an expansiveness to an offense that has been mired in predictability for far too long.

Every time we play the Chiefs I'm reminded that Charlie Casserly could have taken Derrick Johnson but instead traded back and selected Travis Johnson. Apparently he could not hear me screaming at my radio at the time.

Every time I think of that I die just a little bit on the inside.

Default Re: Who gets the start at QB after the bye?

Keenum was far from satisfied with his play Sunday (Dale Robertson).

Quote:
Crunch time irks QB

Without a healthy running back in the second half - Arian Foster was out with an encore hamstring tweak, and Ben Tate tried to play with multiple broken ribs, but his four post-halftime carries were for 1, minus-1, 0 and 1 yard - the Chiefs ratcheted up pressure on Keenum until he was being buried on almost every play. Already leading the NFL in sacks, they exploited the Texans' single-dimension offense and the quarterback's inexperience with vigor, dumping him for sizable losses on three successive third downs before crushing him one last time on second-and-10, finally forcing the fumble that would be the Texans' lone turnover on the afternoon.

Kansas City was sending more rushers than the Texans had blockers, and Keenum didn't yet possess the wherewithal or acumen to adjust accordingly on the fly. However, after replaying the situations repeatedly both in his mind and on the video screen, he promised it wouldn't happen to him the same way next time, whenever that next time comes.

"The sacks were on me," he said. "But I won't make the same mistakes twice."

A road warrior in the making?

Case Keenum posted a higher quarterback rating in his first NFL road start than any Houston quarterback who preceded him. How his numbers in Kansas City compared to those posted by the city's most prominent:

Player Year Week Opp. Result Cmp. Att. Pct. Yds. TD Int. Rating

Dan Pastorini 1971 6 at Steelers L 23-16 17 3450.0 191 0 1 54.9

I think this is most comparable since he was not the starter & only had 1 week to prepare as the starter. Granted as the #2 he was being prepared similar to the starter & he took garbage time snaps before his first start.

Andrew Luck after OTAs & Training camp as the starter
@CHI L 23 comp 45 att 51.1pct 309 yards 6.9 ypa 1 TD 3 INT 3 sacks 1 fumble

Russell Wilson won the starting job in the preseason
@ ARI W 58-0 18 comp 34 att 52.9 pct 153 yards 4.5 ypa 1 TD 1 INT 3 sacks 1 fumble


I know some people say it's ludicrous to compare Case Keenum to Andrew Luck. But those three guys are considered to be "franchise" QBs. If the idea is to see if Keenum can be a franchise guy, I don't know who else to compare him to.

& Keenum compares well after 1 start. Playing a tougher defense, statistically, with less preperation.

Default Re: Who gets the start at QB after the bye?

from doc's all 22 link

Quote:
We knew he could throw the ball. Him in that shotgun-type of look, where he looks like hes going to hand it off, sometimes that slows the rush down because [you dont know] if it could be a run, or it could be a pass. Once we know it is a pass, we can go after him.
and this is why you keep a back in at this level. you have to at least threaten the run, even if running doesnt work. you also have to keep the back in for blitz pickup to prevent a free rusher. this becomes infinitely more important when you have a young quarterback who's not as able to protect himself with hot reads and only a week to prepare.

We all know Keenum is going to get the start, the only question is how they spin it: Schaub to IR or too injured to play or talk about a real demotion and how Keenum gives them a spark they need goin forward?

I'm thinking for at least one more week, they'll say something to the extent of giving Schaub another week to heal up, not rushing him back, etc. etc. If Keenum stinks it up, that gives Kubiak an easy way to start Schaub in the next game. If Keenum plays well, shows progress from the KC game, then Kubiak will have to officially bench Schaub for the following game.

I can't believe there's actually 19 posters on this board that want to see Schaub start. For what?.. what possibly do we have to gain out of him starting?
