HOUSTON -- Houston Texans quarterback Case Keenum will start in Sunday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts, coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday.

The decision came despite the fact that former starter Matt Schaub returned to practice after missing the Texans' last game with a sprained ankle and foot.

If Yates is in uniform, I'm going to be skeptical about Schaub being healthy.

I've had torn ligaments in my ankle and I was out for a while. I don't know the severity of matts situation, but I don't see him having torn ligaments and being able to play football.

I think they are either saying Matt is healthy so they can get rid of him, or kubiak is doing Matt a favor so when he has to find a new team they aren't skeptical about his injuries...and maybe a little bit mixed in with him seemingly making a tough decision (even though it shouldn't be tough).

Don't know if any of that makes sense, but I think it's strange that it's reported he has torn ligs while texans and Matt are saying he's healthy.

I am excited about the extra week of preparation and hopefully we see a less conservative game plan.
I think Kubiak did a good job with the game plan vs. KC. The RBs going down hurt him, no doubt, but he played to Keenum's strengths. When Tate went down, I posted in the game day thread at that point that the chances of winning were all but nil. There wasn't much else in terms of game plan Kubiak could have done.

Now, the typical curl up in a ball on the sideline crying for halftime to get there faster crap has to go. He's done that for years and it never fails to infuriate me. You can't play football scared, and that is exactly what Kubiak does just before the half way too many times.

If Keenum somehow proves he can't do the job, and the Texans do NOT get a new QB next year, AND Kubiak is still the head coach after such a mess, maybe I'll find something else to do with my Sundays in 2014.



I think we'll be drafting a QB regardless of how well Keenum plays. Keenum's success will dictate how high/low we decide to take one. Just my opinion of course.

Finally kubiak is making decisions like his job is on the line. Might be a little too late though.

Just an example (I'm kind of laughing at myself by posting this)...

After the Patriots drafted Tom Brady in the 6th round of the 2000 draft, and after Bledsoe went down and Brady took them to the Super Bowl in 2001, the very next year, the Patriots drafted a QB in the 3rd round of the 2002 NFL Draft, Rohan Davey.

Different QBs, probably different results, and way different coaches...but Schaub = Bledsoe? Seems about right.

Kubiak says Keenum is starting Sunday versus the Colts, but that he's not naming him as the season-long starter. He'll re-evaluate every week. Keenum would have to suffer an epic collapse to see Schaub back in as starter, IMHO.

Probably for the best. If Schaub has torn ligaments in his ankle, he'll be about as mobile as a fence post, and behind this garbage O-line, that would just be cruel. When I tore a ligament in my ankle, it was 5 days before I could walk and 4 weeks before I could run without an aircast.

I hate this kinda talk. We should always be trying to win.

I can't imagine why anyone would say, "Might as well throw him out there." or, "Might as well see what he's got." unless you believe Schaub gives us the best chance to win, but you don't want to win because your hatred for Schaub & Kubiak run deeper than your love for the Texans.

Kubiak's been more than fair to Schaub, I've got a few issues with the way he managed this transition, niggles really, but we are where we are. Keenum showed to be able to play well and make good decisions in a real game situation. It wasn't too fast for him & he didn't do anything stupid. Posting a 110 passer rating (or whatever it was) is promising against the 3rd or 4th best defense in the league, but he definitely showed signs of being a rookie (first time starter).

He's proven to be a viable alternative at the QB position & Matt has proven it was time for a change. Keenum will get his chance to show what he's got, but he's going to be doing it in the context of winning. You can't tell jacksht about a QB if you're playing for nothing. Matt Schaub's tenure in Houston should've taught us that.

I'm confused you say Schaub will be "as mobile as a fence post".

So you are saying post injury he will be more mobile, because that sounds like an upgrade to me.......
