I shudders o think what that stadium would be like with a Schaub start...just don't see it happening.

I like listening to sports talk on the radio... but if you know me, that doesn't mean I necessarily agree with half the stuff they are saying.

The other day I heard something that just made all the sense in the world. Before the game Kubiak said he's going to start Case, over TJ, because the team needed a spark & he wants to see if Case could provide it.

Well, after the game he said there definitely was a spark.

So if Kubiak believed the team needed a spark & he believed Case provided that spark, why would he blow it out?

& seriously, listening to everything Kubiak has said about Case since the game, it's evident to me that the Case Keenum era has just started.

The "attempt to play through" part scares me though. Kinda infers that someone intends on him playing.

Default Matt Schuab as Torn Ankle Ligaments

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...t-not-be-right

Quote:
If Matt Schaub wants to remain the Houston Texans starting quarterback, he'll likely have to fight through physical pain keep the job.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Schaub has torn ankle ligaments that he will attempt to play through, according to two sources informed of the injury.

One source with direct knowledge said Schaub might not be "right" all season
(Some fans surely will argue he wasn't 'right' even when healthy.)

Coach Gary Kubiak, prior to the Texans' bye week, called Schaub the staring quarterback. Kubiak then said they would evaluate both Schaub and Case Keenum during the time off.

Given how this season has gone for the Texans, if Schaub isn't healthy the team would be better served by finding out what they have in Keenum
Anyone think this is true? Or could it just be something that the Texans organization is feeding the media and us fans for a reason to start Case Keenum again?

Whatever.

Schaub is not going to be our future starter, neither is Yates, so we might as well find out if we have to draft a QB next year by playing Keenum now. We all have known this for a while now. The only question there's ever been is does Kubiak realize it yet.

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 the so called 'injuries' have already secured Kubiak for 2014. Love McNair, but he's all about 2nd, 3rd and 4th chances

So much for all that crap from many here who were convinced that Kubiak was hitched to Schaub. I am not surprised at all. I think he's about had it with #8's play thus far and realized how Keenum has the potential to invigorate this offense with his athleticism. I am excited about the extra week of preparation and hopefully we see a less conservative game plan.

I think he gets it. And he's pinning all his hopes on Keenum now, because I think the only way Kubes keeps his job is if we go 8-8 or better. Anything less and I believe he's gone for one of the hotter college coaches.

Who knows, maybe Kubiak will call better games with his back against the wall? I'm excited to see Keenum play. Nothing would be better than an undrafted QB outplaying the #1 pick in one of the best QB drafts in recent memory.

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 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.

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.
