Bill Belichick was not without his faults his first 10 years as HC.
Yeah, Belichik didn't turn into the Zen master until Brady.

Those kinds of turnovers are much more acceptable than the kind Schaub has had this season. Yates isn't even worth discussing at this point.
Personally, I was OK with the second fumble, but I didn't want to make an excuse for Keenum.

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

I think Keenum earned the next start it's obvious there's a lot there you can work with. If Kubiak starts Schaub after the bye I think it's going to be a case of him thinking Schaub is still the best option to win and that the season is not lost. I think that is wrong right now but Keenum is still prone to greenhorn mistakes, so it's not completely unfounded that Kubiak might think this. If some media speculation is true, then I have read that Kubiak thinks a lot of Keenum so we shall see what will happen.

Keenum has earned the start with how he performed.

Obviously it wasn't perfect but he's certainly earned the right.

He looked pretty dang good with Bledsoe before his injury. Don't rewrite history. He wasn't always a great HC, but he always did his best for the team, regardless of position.

His first coaching gig with the Browns ended up with a minus ten in the win-loss column, with Testaverde at QB for a few years.

His first year with Bledsoe, 2000, the pats went 5-11.
The lost their first two games in 2001; then came Brady.

Wow and I was told to actually watch the game. Perhaps you should take that same advice. The guy was blocked 12 yards up the field. How long is a guy supposed to maintain that block? That was one of the rare instances that Newton was actually blocking. Take those rose colored glasses off this time, I am sure you will see what I mean.

I have? Why because I pointed out the truth? I support whomever is the starting QB, and if that is Keenum he will have my full support.

Normally, it would have been OK if Keenum had the room to step up the pocket.

The defender had a running start, and caught Keenum from behind.

This is still a negative about Keenum.
If he was a bigger QB, he might be able to hold on to the ball better.

However, with Schaub, the defender would have gotten there even sooner.

Brown was not beat, he was pushed into the pocket, but he was not beat, and Newton blocked Hali 12 yards up the field. This sack/fumble was on Keenum no matter how much you want to deny it.

I have watched the play 20 times now. Keenum had enough time to throw, and room to run had he chosen to do that. He held the ball, he got sacked, he fumbled, which is why you don't want your QB running around extending plays because that is what can happen.

A sack would have been fine, at least the Texans could have gotten up and ran some more plays. Still had a chance to win with a sack, but the turnover ended the game.

As far as "reading all these comments about Newton all of a sudden". LMAO, this is just you showing your bias if you actually think people are "now just all of a sudden talking about Newton's bad play" or how people just now think it's a issue. That's a complete downright lie, it's been well documented on this board how people feel about Newton.. they were saying he sucks even when your boy played. They have been talking about his bad play since he was inserted into the lineup

As far as how you can't wait for people to "turn on Keenum too", that's really besides the point. The point is people are finally ready to turn the page on Schaub, because it's obvious he is not the answer.. regardless if Keenum will prove to be or not has yet to be seen, but at least we don't know yet, hence why he should get his Shot .. we already know Schaub isn't, hence why it's time to move aside.
No running backs to keep them honest? Dude there was 1:41 left in the game, the Texans had no time outs. Who the hell would be running the ball at that point to keep someone honest? NOBODY! Just more excuses. Keenum had plenty of time to be the hero and win the game, he failed and ended it on ONE PLAY even though all of you swore if we just had a mobile QB those things would not happen.

Wait I thought the Seahawaks have the best front 7? Hmmm. seems like to me you want to make excuses. It does not matter what front 7 you are facing. If your have that IT factor, then you win. Isn't that what was said? Doesn't Keenum have that IT, that "Aura"? Where was it on the one play we needed it most?

I never said "I can't wait", so stop trying to put words in my mouth. I said "it is a matter of time", so stop with the BS. Nothing wrong with being ready to turn the page on Schaub, but pumping sunshine as you guys used to say does not make the problem go away.

There was nothing in my original post that said it is not time to move on, nor anything saying Case should not get another shot. I simply called the play out for what it is. A game ending sack fumble on a guy who is supposed to be mobile, have a quick release, and great pocket awareness. None of those things were displayed on that final play. I am sorry if that hurts your feelings, but lets see the Internet tough guy you were when you were criticizing Schaub when giving analysis on Keenum.

No way; if Schaub saw Brown get beat to the inside, he would have retreat and curl up. Can't get the pass off there; no time. Heck, even with Keenum's quick delivery, he didn't even have time to throw the ball. There's no way Schaub can get the ball off. There was nobody open early; and you don't call a play for your QB to take the snap and just throw the ball away immediately; there is no such play in football.

Nitro, on that last play, Keenum was trying to step up the pocket at the one-sec mark; you would expect the protection call was for the LT not to allow penetration to the inside.

My problem with Schaub is that going back to last season it is become blatantly clear that he is not the same guy and I'm becoming a true believer on what the good local Doc had to say about his foot injury. He went from being some one who was considered by even the national media as a "vastly underrated player", having debates whether or not if he's a top 10/ elite QB.. (and whether he was or not, he at least played like one and could put up the #s to boot). He's fallen to a player that is now regarded by those around the league as just a "game manager type". We've seen flashes of the old Schaub like you've mentioned above, but they've become fewer and farther between and you can no longer consistently expect that type of play out of "today's Schaub".

Honestly the only thing I think Keenum lacks that Schaub has is experience (one of the reasons why he was so bothered by the blitzes late in that game) and there's only one way for him to get experience. He has to play. Schaub's best days are behind him though and I don't expect him to return to form. I still like the guy and don't want us to IR him, I think his knowledge and experience can help Keenum and he could be a valuable asset to bounce questions off of.

Keenum was out of the pocket at the 3-sec mark; that's all you can ask from your QB, wouldn't you say?

Look at the routes that Hopkins, Jean, Graham, and Tate ran.
They require that the QB being able to step up the pocket.

In a perfect world lineman should pancake their man and then lay on top of him until the whistle blows, but there is no doubt Newton was outclassed by Tamba Hali, but on that play, Newton blocked his man sufficiently. The ball should have come out, or Keenum should have ran.

actually no, that would be stupid since Schaub is not mobile, but perhaps Keenum could take a page from (Excluding the recent rash of turnover) Schaub's excellent record of protecting the football. As much as we hate to see Schaub fall down when a sack is imminent, it is a matter of protecting the football and not coughing it up like Keenum did. Sure you get extended plays when you have a guy running around back there on broken plays, but you also see more turnovers when you get outside the game plan. Ultimately it is exciting to watch, but it did not win the game, in fact it was the sole reason the game was lost.

Even though I know you are such a narcissist that you are incapable of conceiving of the idea that not everyone thinks like you, I have to say that going back to the tired "he is a relative of" or "In a relationship with" Schaub does nothing for your credibility. Kind of like saying Keenum was sacked and fumbled because we had no running backs to keep the D honest. WEAK SAUCE!

Really? You mean with with 1:41 to go and no timeouts you should just take your time and wait for players to get open? That at some point the defender is going to find his mark while you mosey around in the pocket? Keenum had plenty of time to throw, and or run. He hesitated, he got sacked, he fumbled, Chiefs recovered, GAME OVER!

Of course you throw the ball away, stop the clock and prevent a turnover from happening. Have more chances to get in FG range. There is a such a play in the NFL. It's called "common knowledge on three, ready? BREAK!"

You do understand that was not the Texans offensive scheme right? That they basically ran plays from Keenum's College days so that he would do well? You understand that is why he was moving the ball on the Chiefs so easily right? Caught them off guard in the first half for sure as they were expecting the Texans offensive scheme.

But you see what happened in the 2nd half right? After the Chiefs figured out what the Texans were trying to do and adjusted? But you also realize that the Texans are not going to continue to run the spread offense the rest of the year right? So what does Keenum look like when he is running the Texans offensive scheme? We didn't get to see that, so we do not know anything other than you caught a team off guard for a half of football that was not expecting the spread offense from the Texans.

Thank goodness, I was beginning to think I might have to keep listening to comments from your side of the gene pool.

There was nobody open early; and you don't call a play for your QB to take the snap and just throw the ball away immediately; there is no such play in football.
At the very least we live to play another down...... on offense, with the ball.

We've seen flashes of the old Schaub like you've mentioned above, but they've become fewer and farther between and you can no longer consistently expect that type of play out of "today's Schaub".
I agree with your whole post. This part though is the most important part going forward. You just don't know. & we won't know until he gets back in the saddle. & if we can't expect him to be that guy consistently then my vote is to go with the kid... I think it's easier for Kubiak to anticipate where he'll struggle & compensate accordingly..... plus Case's big play ability (which we have not seen from Schaub in a long, long time) pottentially trumps whatever rookie mistakes he might have (to a point).

When it is clear cut, yes.

Keenum did eat a couple of sacks and threw the ball away at least once when it was clear that he should.

This isn't one of those times.
