At this point we know we aren't going to win, so what difference does it make it neither Yates or Keenum can win either?

In any case, given the choices, I voted for Keenum.

Default Re: Does either Yates or Keenum give you a better chance to win that Schaub.

What kind of question is that? Heck. we would have likely won today's game against the Seahawks with Tim Tebow at quarterback. So yes, Yates and Keenum are looking very attractive right about now. But we should rally behind Matt Schaub and wish him well at San Francisco. This is a sinking ship that Matt Schaub is the captain on and we may as well go down with him.

I think Yates or Keenum will suit us over Schaub given our pocket issues.

Id rather gamble and see something new then to be continuously let down with things that arnt working.

I dont think our O line will get better anytime soon, and Matt Schaub with 5% of pressure = bust. I liked Keenum's/Yate's plays moving in and out (I know it was preseason).


You have tools like

two catching TEs: Garrett Graham, OD
Foster/Tate in the flats/run game, both can catch
AJ + Hopkins for size/speed/consistency (AJ had some ridiculous catches today and D.Hop vs Titans)
Martin/Posey for speed.

Default Re: Does either Yates or Keenum give you a better chance to win that Schaub.

I'd sit Schaub next week and start Yates (even though I chose Keenum) but then if Yates couldn't produce I'd play the next guy in the second half. Mostly I'm thinking I need to see if I've got someone who's going to be able to step up on my roster. I'm not really all that concerned with the order.

I knee-jerk chose Keenum simply because he brings more mobility than Yates who I see as more of a more athletic Schaub. Either would be a step up in athleticism and a step back in experience BUT..... experiences come in both good and bad and it appears to me that Schaub's grow a little gun-shy. He seems worried about the pressure before it's actually on him. That's something Yates or Keenum won't have.

I voted for Yates because he's listed as #2. I think either of the backups can do better than Schaub.

With what RG3, Kaep, and Wilson did last year...not sure Schaub could lean on experience any more.

Experience should have told him not to throw the ball willy nilly to the flats with a 7 point lead. Usually that's what experience is good for...y'know...not throwing the ball over the middle before realizing if the defense is playing a zone or not...things like that...

I honestly don't know, but they can't do any worse. If either Tj or Case threw 6 interceptions after 4 games, 3 returned for scores..... I'd give them a little slack. It is what it is... but for Schaub to be trying to prove he can win with this team after 7 years????????


C'mon man.

Dont matter anyone can see by kubiaks post game speech that Schaub is the man and all the pick 6s he has thrown is Kubiaks fault, according to Kubes.

Throw Schaub to the wolves next week in SF. No reason to start Yates or Keenum in that environment.

Start Yates against the Rams week 6. If he plays horrible then start Keenum week 7 against KC.

If we're going to keep seeing rookie mistakes from our QB, then I want to see some rookie upside. I voted Keenum. I would be fine with Yates. Schaub is a very good QB as long as the pass rushers leave him alone (cue the "leave Britney alone!" video here). If the defense insists on pressuring him, we're going to continue seeing bad Schaub. So we can either strike a deal with our upcoming opponents to count Three Mississippi before they rush, or we can put a QB in that can do something under pressure.

Honestly, when you see Schaub have to move off his spot, don't you already know the play is over? Or at least, you hope it's over and not going the other way for six?
