    I am shocked at this revelation! I'll be telling my grandkids about this moment in history.

    If someone had told me a couple of years ago that Ryan Fitzpatrick would be our starter in 2014, I would have politely reminded this person to quit bogarting and respect the puff puff pass rule.

    Houston Texans fan for life...but nobody said it would be easy... :texflag:

    I threw up in my mouth a bit after hearing this. How ****ty are Keenum and Yates that they can't beat out what I consider one of the worst QB's in the league...

    One million Keenum fans just committed suicide.

    How is this news surprising? I think the writing was on the wall when we signed him and what we had on the roster. Plus, his contract numbers. The Fitz sucks, but Keenum and Yates bring suckage to a new level.

    Let's all hope our defense is top 5-7 and we can run the ball. Otherwise, we can count on a top 10 pick next year too.

    It's not unexpected, but I was still hoping for an early Xmas miracle. Oh well... new season motto; If we can't have a QB, you can't either! Hopefully we take out opposing QB's with huge sacks and win that way.

    I figure Fitz getting named starter is like the proctologist appointment you make months ahead of time.

    You know what's up in the back of your mind, but you don't really think about it.

    Until, that is, you're sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's office...

    Right now, I'm in that waiting room.

    tbh, the defense is the only thing I'm really looking forward to with any expectation.

    Some would spin that as 'progress'!! :bender:

    Duh! As if there was any doubt. Now on to the 3 or 4 win season we'll probably have. At least my Sundays will be more productive now.

    To be fair, unless Keenum or Yates is cut soon, this really does not mean much. After camp, and pre season things could change. Because of injury, or getting out played. Who knows what could happen come opening day.

    You've all been Fitzzled!! :)

    As expected, and I have no problem with this. I actually like Fitz and I think he'll be a very good QB in the right environment. Let's hope this is the right environment :)

    Agreed! And props on the analogy. MSR

    I'm looking forward to watching the defense too. I threw the running game in there too because it relies on the oline. I enjoy watching the play in the trenches and expect improvement from last season.

    Pickspatrick!!!

    I always expected this.

    Fitzpatrick is the seat warmer till Savage displaces him.

    Would not be surprised to see Keenum and Yates missing the 53.

    Congrats to Ryan ... now let's hope one of the other guys (Keenum preferably) can beat him out in training camp.

    I believe and have believed since we didn't take a QB in the 1st round that he'd be our starter. Where we were once Denver South, we're now New England South. I'd prefer to be Seattle or San Francisco South personally, and honestly believe the offenses those teams run are the future of the NFL. This is not what we'll see from O'Brien. I may be FirstFormerTexansFan soon :roast:
