Eh, I disagree. Warner was the first UDFA to do it big, then about seven years later it was Romo and about seven years after Romo, its Keenum's turn. NFL is due for another udfa to make it big. And who wears #7? Just saying.

This has got Brady (at worst Romo) story written all over it. (I can hope right?)

I can see Keenum having a creative offensive mind, lets just hope he isnt chained down by Kubes draconian style game management. I can see Keenum turning into an offensive juggernaut as his IQ is quite high for a QB and as young and raw as he is in the pros, it can only go up from here.

Only thing I am worried about is that we are playing the Chiefs defense/offense, in the loudest stadium in the country (arrowhead), against a team that is firing on all cylinders. This could be an epic upset that would vault Keenum instantly into Houston legendary status, or completely knock him down to the pits of Houston sports hell.

Might as well put a bust up in Canton already too eh?



I'm not getting my hopes up only to watch them get squashed and be pissed off for half the week like I was this week. The RAMS game was miserable, it's been the first game I've ever left early in 6 years.

I'm a little surprised by the decision, but I'm glad Kubiak is doing something. We need a spark and this is probably the only way to do it.

That said, Keenum will need to learn in a hurry out here. This defense is going to be coming at him fast and often. Hopefully the O-line gets its **** together.

I also hope the coaching staff opens up the playbook and let's Case throw some different looks.

Default Re: Case Keenum to start Sunday

I echo the sentiment in this thread that I'm excited about this game!

Not that I have a bunch of unrealistic high hopes for Keenum, but rather it's something different and desperate times call for desperate measures.

The team has to know that Kubiak's job is on the line now. If they really like him as a head coach, then now is the time to rally around Case and make something good happen this year. Otherwise, we are probably looking at high draft pick on a QB under a new regime.

Hope for the best... ...but prepare for reality.

Yeah I know. But I am entering this with an open mind. What else is there to lose? If we B level production from Keenum, I would call this move a success. Even if we lose. The Cheifs are just a better team overall and keeping Shaub or Yates wouldn't really change the outcome that dramatically in my opinion.

Our machine shop went bat**** crazy I thought China was invading trying to collect their debt, but equally as shocking Case.Freaking.Keenum.

He could become an HTown legend starting Sunday. I'm a little excited, nothing left to lose. You go with Yates against KC and you pretty much concede the game, Keenum makess it interesting no doubt. Hopefully he doesn't get Carr Bombed getting thrown into the fire against the one of the best D's.

I wonder how much input McNair had on the decision? Like did he say something like "start Keenum or else"?

At least the game on Sunday became must watch TV again.

The Chiefs are 6-0 but it doesn't mean much to me. The Texans have to clean up their mistakes. Stop turning the ball over and committing so many penalties. Let's not beat ourselves. Do that and I don't see any reason why the Texans can't win at Arrowhead Stadium. We haven't lost there before.

I've always wanted Keenum to save us, home town hero an all that kind of stuff. I just hope this isn't to soon to throw him to some of the badest wolves in the league.
