He'll eventually get waived or sign with someone else next season if that.
Personally, I'm hoping he doesn't have to be rushed in like Colt McCoy and that he gets to develop on the practice squad.

Wow.... I'm just happy for the kid because he's from Houston. I don't live in Houston, but I'd root & support anyone from Houston to "do something." If your name (any of you who live in/come from Houston) ever got mentioned for doing something, or an opportunity to do something, I'd be rooting for you. That's just the way I roll.

This kid is an UDFA, meaning we didn't give up anything of any value to pick him up. We've got our starter, we've got our back-up, now we've got someone to run the scout team.

It's totally up to him if he's going to take his career farther.

Accurate perfectly placed moderately long pass under fire. How many 45 yard or longer passes have you seen Schaub complete during a year?

What you say about Brees is correct, but to compare Keenum to Brees is a real stretch.

Again, I'm happy to have the hometown kid in the fold, but we probably shouldn't expect a Drew Brees kind of story from him.

Just sayin....
What I'm saying is that there has been not a single "measurable" presented that would prevent him from succeeding in the NFL. These are the same knocks that everyone who doesn't fit the physical mold is hit with. At the same time players who don't fit the ideal have made it and been successful. Brees was simply an easy example who happens to be playing right now and who came to mind.

What will reallydetermine whether or not Keenum can play will be his own ability to grasp the game at this level and his competitive intensity.

Like I said, he'll get a chance. If he can play at this level there will be a place for him in the league. It's not like he's 5'4" or entirely devoid of arm strength.

A chance is more than many ever get. I hope he makes the most of it.

Show me a play where Shaub throws over 45 yards... I'll wait. WCO doesn't need some spread guy that can air it out 75 yards. We couldn't even use that. What WR do we even have with that kind of speedster ability?

Yall really need to quit regurgitating everything you read off of draft boards. Has never had a season less than 65% completion rate and his last two FULL seasons were both over 70%. Throws his receivers open, has football IQ, and will make it in the NFL.

This is what I want. I hope we keep him on the practice squad for a year give him a shot to be #3 for real next season. More than that though I hope he merits that.

Hey, I'm realistic.
I never did contest it when you said he could go undrafted.
I know it was a very real possibility.

This is a perfect ending to the draft season.

Being an UDFA means that he can choose a team that he likes (if that team also likes him).

It beats having some other team drafting him and we end up regretting it.

This way, there will be no regret.
I'm very happy to see him in Texans uni.

I think more QBs fail for not having it between their ears rather than what's between elbow and shoulder.

He throws 3 50+ in the air that hit the receiver in stride..

For those that don't follow UH football, UH-Rice is a rivalry with as much vitriol as Texans-Titans..

Like Corrosion said, and there are others who appreciate them as well, screen captures serve a different purpose than vids.

They can be great visual aids; I wouldn't bother posting them if there weren't demands for them.
