Default Who do you want at QB for the 2014 - 15 season?

Ya I like Keenum, it's not like he wasn't thrown into a broken team or anything. The play calling was obvious, the right side of the O line was horrendous, Foster was out and Tate was playing with broken ribs Special teams was a joke. Also Randy Bullock was complete crap and missed how many important field goals? The defense couldn't hold a lead.. Have you actually gone and and evaluated each game? Compare Keenum to other elite QB's first years stats wise. The team was in the hole before CK even got thrown into the mess.

Here's a look at some Household name QB's in their starting year

Peyton Manning = 3-13, Drew Brees 2nd Year = 2-9, Eli Manning = 1-6, Troy Aikman = 0-11, Joe Montana = 2-6 first 2 seasons

One more chance with a Healthy and buffed roster and I think we can make a true assessment.

Let's wait and see what BoB thinks of him during training camps.

Default Re: Who do you want at QB for the 2014 - 15 season?

Yeah, I'm with Thorn.

This is a little too early to call for me. I want to see how quickly everyone picks up this offense. I want this to be a true competition and let the best man win and I don't care who that best man is.

If it's Fitzpatrick, I'll be OK with that. He's had issues in the past and he's a journeyman but if our defense is stout enough, we could win with him.

If it's Keenum, I'll be pretty psyched. I'm a UH grad and it would be awesome for the hometown boy to rise to the occasion.

If it's Yates, I'd be OK with that. I really liked the moxy and desire he showed when we limped into the playoffs with him.

If it's Savage, I'd be worried but also, I'd be OK. In the past, rookie QBs were always horrible no matter how well they developed and since that's what I grew up with, I always expect a rookie QB to be crap. So. I'd give up hope of a winning season and hope for the best. OTOH, rookie QBs have started to do remarkably well since Roethlisberger went 15-1. Maybe OB can work some magic with this kid, too. I'd be scared going into that first game, though.

Default Re: Who do you want at QB for the 2014 - 15 season?

i've said all along that keenum wouldnt be ready until this season, so i've gotta stick with that route. if he gets significant first team time during camp i think we could see the same growth from last year to this year as we did between the previous. there were numerous moments last year when i couldnt help but smile and say "schaub could never do that" ... and i'm a schaub homer. keenums flaws as we saw last season aren't physical or mechanical or instinctual, they're coachable. his entire issue is read and location - movement and delivery arent even concerns.

therefor my vote goes to keenum. i dont know that he will start, that job would most likely go to fitzmagic, but i would personally want to see if keenum has grown like i expect him to.

Default Re: Who do you want at QB for the 2014 - 15 season?

I'll back up any QB that gets picked I will add. I just want him to get that chance and if he earns it then all the better. I even stated last year that I couldn't make a true judgement on him just because of the circumstance. I just see something in him for some reason. I have no negative feelings towards any of the QB's we're working with especially if the team fixes the holes aside from the obvious QB position. They've done a good job so far doing just that.

Default Re: Who do you want at QB for the 2014 - 15 season?

I know Im in the minority here - but I want Savage. I know he is not ready. And I know he will make mistakes. But I want to know what we have in him. The question is, if we are going to take a QB early in the draft next season - we need to know what Savage can do to make that decision.

Of course it goes without saying, that I want an open QB battle in camp and I want the winner to actually start the season. I don`t want to give the job to any guy. But I really hope we get a good look at Savage sometime this season - this would also mean, that he looks good in practice.

But Ill root for any guy that starts for us.

Going with the Fitz option simply because I think he could be our Trent Dilfer if the defense shines this year.

I dunno... maybe... your Wunderlich score was probably really high and O'Brien likes smart players... I think your awareness is pretty good - I've seen you when the beer pitcher level gets low.
But I don't remember you being 6'-4" or better and O'Brien seems to like tallness in his QBs... but then Case isn't that tall...
hmmm.... can you throw the deep out with some zip?



I can't believe I spent my 12,000th post this way

I don't care if the Texans can trade the farm to accumulate picks for next year.
There will be at least two franchise QBS coming out next year: Mariota and Winston.
You only need to watch their relative debut to know that these guys have it.

You won't hear me complaining if the Texans can get them no matter if I like Keenum or not.
