Default Re: new coach will cut case

Case did not look like a deer in the headlights like Schaub despite his inexperience. There were no turtle sacks and he threw downfield. He had good pocket presence and actually got the team to show some emotion. He exhibited leadership qualities and was not a flatliner like Schaub & Yates. The crowd at Reliant would cheer for him and make it louder. Give the guy a chance to see what he can do. It would take a few games to see if he can be the starter.

Some of that was getting out-schemed at times today.

Exactly, we should draft two O tackles and a safety to replace Manning. Reed needs to go and Swearinger replaces. I think we from drafting # 10 to 9.

There are plenty of things to be concerned about with Keenum. The arm is not one of them. It's like a bunch of fkn idiots read the combine scouting report and just keep parroting the arm crap despite having actual, real throws on film to watch.

It's just mind boggling how stupid that is.

Default Re: All Encompassing Case Keenum Thread

For his first NFL start, Keenum did much better than most anyone thought. He should, and probably will, get the start against the Colts.

If they win, their next three games are very winnable (Cardinals, Raiders, Jaguars). And don't tell me the Texans can't win the next game, at home against the Patriots. Did you see the Pats play today? Not so hot. Brady was 1-for-12 on third-down conversions.

It's too early to say if Keenum is their QB of the future. But for those of you who think the draft is the solution, don't be so sure. Did you see how Matt Barkley did today in his NFL debut? He had 129 yards and three 3 INTs -- at home...

Case completed 20+ yds a few times. Our O looked much better with Case.

He'll get it.

I haven't seen Kubiak so excited since, well, I can't remember.

Michael Silver of NFL Media (formerly of Yahoo Sports) is pretty astute. He said on NFL Network a few nights ago that if Schaub is replaced as the starting QB, he won't get the job back.

I think he'll be proven right.

He played well enough, but its very obvious he doesn't have the arm strength or frame to be an NFL QB. The guy who is going to lead us to our first super bowl is not on the roster.
Dude, really? You must be blind or you're just talking out of your fourth point of contact. It's ridiculous statements like this that I can't understand. He's got plenty of arm strength and he looks like an NFL QB to me back there so I don't know where you're getting this stuff about his "frame".

I want to see what he does back there with a couple of weeks of first team snaps and in front of a home crowd.

It would also be nice if the Texans could find a RT somewhere but I'm sure that's asking for too much.

Coincidence that a lot of the same people proclaiming case would stink are now the same folks downplaying whatever success he had today?

No.

If that was our 2nd round pick from last season that just stepped in and had that game I think folks would be more reasonable with their evaluations. But since people had such strong opinions they can't come out and say I was wrong. Case does possibly have a future.

If he looks serviceable at the NFL level, maybe you take an O-lineman instead.
Oh no, with Cushing done you can be certain that 2-5 is about as lost as this season can possibly get. We're done.

Exactly.

Some people were expecting him to play like garbage...and he outplays a lot of QBs that went against KC this year with literally no HB and now he's just "Okay."

It's whatever, if this guy is improving from what he did today...I'm not even going to say it. Kid has a LOT of potential.

Yeah he didn't play perfect (who does?) but his mistakes did not lose the game (unlike our previous QBs) and his play was the reason we were in it despite not having a RB.

If Foster plays we EASILY win this game. If you think otherwise then you are basically saying that Foster is worth only one point. Hopefully the bye week is just what Foster and this offense need to get things right again.

I think the only thing that could save Kubes job for another year is Case now. I'd be surprised if he trots Schaub back out there...

Maybe. Maybe not. What's stupid is thinking that any of us knows what a new coach will think if one is brought in after this season. You have no idea what will play out over the next 9 weeks. Keenum could get another start, improve in front of the home crowd at Reliant and never sit back down. For all any of us know right now he could end up being one of the few bright spots of this season (which is looking pretty grim at the moment).

Or he could sit back down in two weeks and never see the field again. We could stagger through this mess with Matt Schaub and his gimpy sloth routine.

We don't know and neither do you. Saying "A new coach will cut case" is just stupid because you don't know what that coach will be looking at yet. If he only saw today he probably still wouldn't just outright cut him. Beyond today nobody knows.
