    sorry if this has been posted already...but i really like case keenum and this article is good. remember yates was on the practice squad too.

    Case, "I'm blessed to be where I'm at, obviously," he said. "But content? No. I won't be content to be a backup. I won't be content just being a starter. I won't be content with just playing. I want to be a big part of the team, and I want to contribute and win games and win championships."

    Thanks for the link.
    It's good to know that he's hungry and he sets his sight high.

    Yates was on the practice Squad until Matt Schaub was hurt. Remember, Owen Daniels was designated as our third Qb that week against Tampa Bay.

    He was inactive but not on the PS. He would have been snagged if he was and the Texans feared that.

    As for Case, sorry redbloods but Case will never amount to anything in the NFL. Just another NCAA QB from a spread offense who has no chance as an NFL QB.

    He was on the 53 man roster, but never active prior to the Jacksonville game. OD wasn't designated as the third QB against Tampa (the third QB designation actually ended after the '10 season), but because Yates was inactive, OD would have had to be the guy to play if a third QB was needed.

    Well, I'm not necessarily agreeing with D-T, but the Texans have signed lots of guys to the Training Camp roster and Practice Squad who never amounted to anything. They signed everyone for a reason - sometimes that reason is "warm practice body needed".

    Again, hopefully Case will succeed, and there's some moderately positive comments coming out of the Texans offices regarding him, but it's far from a probability at this point.

    When talking about Matt Schaub he said

    "They're always there to talk through stuff," Keenum said, "and just watching them and the decisions they make on and off the field is big."

    I hope he isnt watching the decesions he makes on the field to closely :bubbles:

    when it all comes down, we have yet to see case in a full season game. until then, you really can't make any assessment at this time. i don't think case got enough snaps in preseason.

    You'll quickly realize there are 3 factions when it comes to Keenum:

    The homers
    The haters
    The don't care

    Homers and Haters fight while the don't care wish they would both shut up.

    Yeah, public relations. He will NEVER be a pro QB.

    Unless the great and powerful Kubiak saw something that the 31 others teams passed on. If he had ANY chance at all someone would have used a 7th round pick on him as a project.

    Not the best reasoning to use.
