I'm just glad we have him. The guy has a TON of potential and as a UDFA no downside. I'm pretty sure he sticks to the team unless he just royally screws up in camp and pre-season. Which I don't think he will.

The knock about the competition level is unfounded.
Keenum played well against every major program he faced.

As a FR in 07:
- He allowed the Coogs to be competitive against Oregon, playing in a platoon system with Blake Joseph. Had Keenum played the whole game, the Coogs had a fighting chance; on the road no less.
- He came in with the Coogs down by 17 against Alabama and almost pulled out a last minute upset, again, on the opponents' field. You asked Bama fans and they would tell you how nervous they were in the second half of that game.
- He threw for 335 yards and no INT against TCU under heavy pressure.

In 08:
- He threw for 387 yards, 4 TDs, no INT against Okl st. in Stillwater

In 09:
- He led the Coogs to a victory over highly ranked Okl. St. - again, in Stillwater. throwing for 366 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. He also ran for a TD.
- He pulled out a win over Miss St (SEC), on the road, throwing for 434 yards, 4 TDs, and 2 INTs

This year:
- He dismantled UCLA with 310 yards and 2 TDs, no INT - under heavy pressure as usual (unlike Luck who faced pretty much no pressure against the same opponent).
- He shredded Penn St to pieces with 532 yards and 3 TDs.

Keenum performed well under pressure and in front of big, hostile crowds.
You have no worry about his mental make-up.

Yep. Miami (Ohio) is actually a school with a rich football tradition. It's known as the Cradle of Coaches - Paul Brown, Sid Gillman, Weeb Ewbank, John Harbaugh, Sean Payton. All of those guys came through Miami of Ohio one way or another.

Default Re: Former University of Houston QB Case Keenum agrees to a contract with the Texans

There's a lot of reasons in this thread by posters explaining why Kennum:

1) Has all the potential to be great
2) Wil be a starter for the Texans one day
3) supposed weaknesses are unfounded


But as someone who hasn't seen a single UH game - not out of choice, I live in Toronto - can someone please describe a fair assessment of weaknesses Keenum has?

I've seen some people saying the lack of arm strength isn't true because he can sling it (and I've seen some Youtube videos of him throwing it impressively, which aren't exactly scout quality, but still). And then of course there's the "lack of competition" argument that people have been fairly debunking.

So what is then that could be considered a weakness? I guess, what did NFL scouts, GMs, even Texans fans who may not be the biggest of believers see that convinced everyone to pass on Keenum through 7 rounds?

He stunk it up at the combine. He says he was injured, and he did perform more to form at his Pro Day much later, as well as in private workouts. Kubiak referenced the private workout they held with him as something that impressed him. At the end of the day, he stunk it up and that's on him. Whatever else he had working against him, he made it worse.

The rest of the stuff is really preconceived, overblown crap. His height is the only issue anyone can point to, I guess, but even that is not a big deal. He measured in at 6'1" at the combine. If that's all it takes for your scouts to overlook a guy, then you probably ought to fire your scouts. As for arm strength - hey, he's not JaMarcus Russell. But on the plus side of things, he's not JaMarcus Russell, LOL. His arm strength is better than Matt Schaub's and TJ Yates. Might be pretty close on TJ Yates, to be honest. As for system, he ran his system to perfection, and coincidentally, it's the exact same system that RG3 ran. Keenum ran it better against similar competition. So he can get the job done. He has lateral mobility, he has smarts, he has guts, and he has poise.

There may be reasons why he won't succeed in the NFL, as with any QB. But the total crap they've spewed out about him so far all serves the preconceived notions out there about UH QBs at the pro level, short QBs, and conference competition. The biggest obstacle he faces at this point is opportunity. First round draft picks are given every opportunity to succeed. They can screw up year after year after year and still keep their job (Alex Smith, anyone?) or at least remain in the league as a backup (Carr). UDFAs aren't given anywhere near that kind of opportunity. So he has to avoid injuries (like anyone has control over that) and take full advantage of the limited opportunity he gets here.

It's hard to point out a whole lot of weaknesses since he was beasting against college competition and he was really good in the offense he ran. It'll be easier to point out weaknesses once he starts going against NFL competition.

There's a bunch of scouting profiles out there that point out some weaknesses that people think he might have...

I think his age could be considered a bit of a weakness, but really not much of one. His knee problems could be considered a bit of a concern. I guess he is kind of short...

As far as his game goes I think he may have to slow his clock down some and get used to the pace of Kubiaks offense. Taking snaps from under center, turning his back to the defense for a second or two to perform a play fake and then being able to hit the open guy.

I don't really know though. We have a QB friendly system and a good running game...and Keenum has a good head on his shoulders...

I really expect him to do well...

I believe that a lot of scouts are haunted by the ghosts of David Klingler and Andre Ware and the label of U of H "system" QB. The problem was that these two were actually placed in NFL systems which were at the time not going to succeed no matter who was thrown in.

Keenum's talents would be enhanced by Kubiak's tutilage and the Texans' system......weaknesses, whatever perceived now, likely faded far into the background for the same reasons.

Don't forget Kevin Kolb. Hate to say it, but he just hasn't lived up to expectations.

U of H definitely has a rep of producing great college QBs that don't work out on the pro level. Maybe Keenum will break that trend.

IMO the Kevin Kolb comparisons begin and end with the school -- that's all. I was not impressed at all with Kolb and am still wondering how he got such a huge contract in Arizona, but I like Case Keenum.

I'm a Longhorn born and bred in Houston, so I've kept up somewhat with UH football over the past decade. The "lack of competition" argument is a fair one, but when you actually watch Case run the offense, it is obvious that he knows how to play the game and, given the right system, could flourish at any level. I've wondered for years whether he might be a perfect fit for the Texans offense with Kubiak at the helm, so it's interesting to see him get signed.

I've met the guy, and he is as down-to-earth and humble as you can find. Welcome to the team, Case, but I hope you don't see any playing time this year.

Default Re: Former University of Houston QB Case Keenum agrees to a contract with the Texans

I've said it before, there's a stigma being a QB coming from UH after Ware and Klingler and as someone else said, Kolb hasn't really lived up to his potential yet, either.

Keenum didn't have a great combine. He's not tall and people don't think he's got the frame to put on much more muscle, so they expect him to be injury prone. QBs that have led the NCAA in passing yardage have a history of failing at the pros: Bryant Moniz, Graham Harrell, Colt Brennan, Sonny Cumbie, BJ Symons...

Keenum is smart. He's tough. He's a good football player. I think he's going to do well. I don't know if he's going to live up to everyone's expectations in this thread, but I expect him to do better than the nation in general thinks he will.

If you want to go back into history -

Ken Anderson is one of only 2 players from Augustana to play in the NFL.
Jim Hart came from Illinois State.
Steve Deberg is from San Jose St.
Ken O'Brien went to UC Davis
Randall Cunningham is from UNLV.
Terry Bradshaw - Louisiana Tech
Ron Jaworski - Youngstown State.

I don't think the competition faced in college has any relevance on their success in the NFL. How many guys from top tier programs/conferences never make it? The main difference is the top tier guys get more opportunities (as someone else already mentioned in here).
