    Who else is watching this kid and thinking "please let him fall to the Texans next year"?

    The kid might be better than Schaub is right now.

    He's not better than Schaub right now, but I like him...he's got the right mix of tools and he's definitely coachable. He looks natural coming off the bootleg.....the fact that his girlfriend is hot doesn't hurt either...lol.

    Bring her GF in for a cheerleader try-out.
    Leave McCarron back in the wood.
    The Texans don't need him. :kitten:

    I see where you are going with this, and we are going to have to disagree pretty vehemently. A gentleman's bet on who has the better NFL career between the two (Keenum and McCarron)?

    He's too sexy for his shirt, too sexy for his shirt, so sexy it hurts...

    We'd be better off hoping the Texans acquire the ammunition to move up to get him if he's looking as good as you think.... or hope he suffers a shoulder injury, ala Schaub, & tumbles through the draft but still capable of throwing 500 or so times a year.

    Easily the most ridiculous post of the day.

    Glad I could amuse. He is not having a great game tonight, but I stand by what I said- I want the Texans to draft McCarron, and I think that he may be better today than Schaub is. However, I would still haev Schaub as the starter for the 2014/15 season, as Schaub has a mastery of the playbook.

    Pass. I've watched probably 75% of his games since he's been a starter. No thanks.

    I don't know about him ever since he pushed his center in a game . That and he hangs out with Manziel make me wonder .

    I don't want him either .... He's a product of the talent around him IMO.



    I'd rather take a flyer on a guy like Clemson's Tajh Boyd.

    I still need to watch some more of McCarron to see how much he can improve this season.

    I am a big fan but think he might be gone before Texans first pick and I would not trade up significantly to get him. Currently ranked #47 so he could be there. He does everything well and the only thing Schaub has on him is NFL experience. That is a lot but look what we are saying about Keenum. Sit McCarron or Fales behind MS for 2014 season and then watch him battle Keenum for starter. Also an advantage to having a #1 QB pick is both Yates and Case are up for new contracts in 2015 and McCarron could be a leverage.

    Who was the impostor that played QB for the Tides against the Hokies?
    I wonder if the "minor" surgery in the off-season affects McCarron.
    I didn't like his play at all.
    Happy feet, poor pocket presence, holding on to the ball too long, walking right into pressure, failing to recognize blitzes (except for a couple of times when he went quickly downfield - once for a TD, and once when he overthrew the receiver), throwing from his back foot - mainly 'cause he waited a hair too long. He needs to get out of that funk or the Aggies will have a win.

    On a side note, the Texans have an option year with Keenum that will make him an ERFA in 2015. They can have him back for cheap.

    Yeah, I agree to all of this. I jinxed the guy pretty good- I started this thread after one or two drives. Almost immediately afterwards, he looked like crap.

    bb- What the Texans do at the draft will tell us what they think of Yates' and Keenum's potential. If they draft a QB high (first 2 rounds), it says that they are not sold. If not, then they must like the two young guys.

    McCarron's never impressed me. The guy plays behind one of the top 3 or 4 OLs in the NCAA, always has a great running game, and his games are usually meh. He pops up a good one every now and again, but he just doesn't impress me across the board.

    I'd love for the Texans to grab a bona fide successor to Schaub, but I just don't see it happening this year. If it does, I don't want it to be McCarron.

    I see it differently than you do- I see him as a great player playing alongside a great team. But hey, that's what makes talking about this stuff great- the difference of opinions.

    I like mccaron. Good mobility, good arm, finds the open man, doesn't make a lot of mistakes, plays some of the top competition in the country...I've never seen him look too rattled.

    Plus I think he has a grittiness about himself.

    I would definitely take qb in this coming draft. Seems like the perfect time to do it.

    Yep you & I are on same page. I would not be surprised to see Yates & Keenum in some order BUT Yates may get offer to start elsewhere if it appears Case will start in Houston. As I think Fales and McCarron could be starters NFL and I think Schaub will be gone, I have to draft QB '14. Aj did have a not so good game but we will see how he corrects.

    But he was rattled by the Hokies, Rey.
    If the ST and the defense didn't give him 21 points, it could have been a total different story.

    On the other hand, Saban kinda handcuff him, I think !?!
