Default Re: Kubiak wants to add fourth QB

I don't think Matt Schaub will be ready by the start of the season, despite him and the staff saying all the right things. I've just seen it too much here to know better.

That said, I get the feeling Yates is going to get all the first team snaps possible to prove he's more than capable of starting out the season, because I think he'll be doing just that. I am thinking they'll likely go after another veteran arm in the mean time to do two things: one, help TJ and Case out with learning the offense and what it takes to be a successful QB. Two, if TJ doesn't look sharp and struggles through TC and preseason, we need someone that is capable of stepping into a starting role.

If I had my choice, I'd love for them to convince Delhomme to put off retirement for another year or go after a guy like Billy Volek.

I think Jake is done. If they sign a veteran I wouldn't be surprised to see them get John Beck.

If they think there's going to be a problem with Matt, I wouldn't be surprised if they go after Dennis Dixon to create some competition for TJ. If they just want someone who knows the basic system and they don't want to threaten TJ, they'll go after Beck.

At least, that's what I expect.

Probably for the same reason why a lot of UT athletes still get support after a few mistakes. Typically if you did a great job for your school and were a great player the school's fans will always appreciate a guy as they should just as long as the guy isn't getting into multiple problems and committing serious crimes. VY hasn't done anything close to that. Say what you want about his NFL career, but as a college athlete he is easily one of the best players of all time and "arguably" the best college QB of all time. So asking why UT alums or fans would support him still is a very silly question and a rhetorical one at that.

More complete BS. Sure he has had some problems on and off the field, but to say he has done nothing but self destruct is just false once again. He still has made a lot of money and is able to do a lot of things in his life if he never plays for another team again and will have a lot of opportunities.

Default Re: Kubiak wants to add fourth QB

And there you go.

They'll go through the OTAs and whatnot with TJ/Beck/Keenum.

When Matt comes back, the competition will probably be between Beck and Keenum for the #3 spot.

I'm thinking Kubes wants to hang onto Keenum.

And count me in with the crowd that doesn't expect Schaub back for the start of the season, if ever. God I hope I'm wrong on that.

Default Re: Kubiak wants to add fourth QB

I am less than thrilled about it being Beck, I was hoping for someone who could possibly be an emergency starter if Yates struggles, which I don't think he will, but at any rate I think anything short of Schaub being Pup'd to start the season, Keenum is going to get that #3 spot and Beck will be the odd man out.

Keenum will end up on the practice squad. No team will sign him off the PS knowing that they have to put him on their active roster (for the entire season, IIRC).

If he has a decent pre-season, there are a lot of teams that would snatch him off the practice squad. If he doesn't, then he goes the way of all the other U of H QBs. But I think Keenum is going to surprise some folks and we'll keep him.

I couldn't agree with you more. The only two things that will keep Case off the practice squad are Matt going on the PUP list, or Beck stinking things up so bad that Kubiak and Co. can't justify a roster spot for him. Notice that the fear of him getting claimed for somebody else's 53 man roster isn't one of those two things.

Based off the sample we have had from him starting in DC in a pretty similar system I'd say odds are good.

I think their performance at TC will determine who gets the 3rd string spot (Beck or Keenum). My guess is Keenum tears it up and impresses Kubes.

What about the possibility that Keenum plays well enough to earn his way onto the squad?

Get a haircut dude!

Typical "I can fix him" mentality here. Beck is what he is. Nothing more than our 3rd string QB. I hope he has had alot of practice at holding the clip board. Cause he is gonna be doing alot of that here in Houston.

I think Schaub will be ready game 1. We will rush him back to make sure we get some early W's against the Fins and Jags. Then we get into a tough stretch.
