Honestly, who cares if we miss out on the #1 pick. What's that mean? Missing out on bridgewater?

Can anyone say he is a can't miss QB?

We will be in the top 3 picks anyways.

What I'm getting at is it's not like there is an Andrew Luck or any other can't miss guy there. Just our luck...

No way, gotta get Keenum back out there, he just needs more time. His stats in his first games is better than Elway and Manning! He is the future!

At least that way some of the deadbeats that have the nerve to bang on Andre for a few dropped balls will be able to come up with another round of excuses for their boy.

Just wait 'till Jacksonville pick him. Then we'll be saying how we're screwed because we have to face Luck & Bridgewater.

Cut Schaub.

Except that Jax can't finish with a higher draft pick than the Texans, being 2 games ahead with 1 to play. That means if the Texans have to face Bridgewater twice a year in a Jags uniform, it's their own fault for passing on him.

T-Kiss, do you seriously believe bridgewater is going to be a great nfl QB? I'm not saying I know one way or the other but I'm not sure I can decipher sarcasm on the boards.

Fuuny thread that the OP says that it's a slap in the face to Yates. Lol!

As if Yates is some sort of starter material. Newsflash, Yates is a backup and no he does not deserve to be in there even over Schaub. Yates hasn't ever earned the right to start.

This isn't the YMCA. Not everyone gets to play. Yates is a dumpster fire and so is Schaub.
I say you direct snap to the RB and see how quickly they can run to the #1 pick in the draft.

Because keenum was just "lights out" in his 0-8 record, right? The only reason he isn't starting is due to injury. Matt Schaub single handedly started the train wreck that is the 2013 season. I'm just saying, if keenum gets 32 quarters to try and prove his worth, shouldn't Yates get more than 2?

At this point, we are starting the third and fourth RBs, flip flopping between back up QBs, playing our 3rd string TE and don't even get me started on the defensive backups that are playing.

The only reason they SHOULDNT play Yates is if he is a dead man walking and everyone in the FO knows he is cut the first opportunity they get. If they want him to remain on the team after 2013 then it would make sense to give him the start to see what he's made of under circumstances like these, two years removed from his playoff win.

Keenum has shown why the other 31 teams passed on him and why he was an UDFA.

Schaub is an absolute wreck that needs to retire.

Yates is no worse then these two guys.

He might still have some value if we don't let him play and prove he's no better...

Yates is no worse than the 2 guys we've trotted out there all year long to the tune of 2-13. Yates has as much right to start as either of these other two bums.

I thought that the tiebreaker was the strength of schedule

with the same number of wins, the team with the easiest schedule wins the first pick

http://www.theredzone.org/Features/N...fSchedule.aspx

here it says that we have an easiest schedule than the redskins, so they should get #2 pick overall (rams will get it in the end, but you get the point)

But St. Louis, which owns Washington’s first-round pick thanks to the 2012 Robert Griffin III trade, also remains in contention. If Washington loses on Sunday and Houston wins, then Washington would likely move ahead of Houston in the draft order (thanks to the strength of schedule tiebreaker), and the pick that Washington would send to St. Louis would be No. 1 overall.
This is what I was referring to which is consistent with what I've been hearing for a while.

We're way past "starter material" now. This whole "earned the right" thing doesn't apply to anyone on the roster (at the QB position)
