    I thought he looked "ok". He wasn't a train wreck but he made some mistakes. That penalty really hurt and I'm starting to think he's always going to be that guy. If we wanted a safety who can't resist doing something stupid we could have had Pollard back.

    I really want to believe he can be coached out of that kind of stuff but I'm not feeling real optimistic about it.

    I think I want to see him keep playing though. Only way he'll get better is to get out there and get some experience and this is starting to look like that kind of year.

    Thats kinda how i felt too hervy...i didnt see him make much happen out there except when he was coming up for run support.....thought it was ironic that it was Keo who came up with the int though....

    I have been a Keo critic since the beginning. I'm still bitter that he was kept and it led to Shelley Smith's release last season. I have to say, though, I think he has been our most consistent safety this year- actually playing well (not just relatively well) in 3 or 4 games this season.

    He reminds me of Bernard Pollard. That is sometimes a good thing and sometimes a bad thing. We'll see how it goes, but I think if they play him in the box and get a free safety, they could have a good tandem. That's not the style of safety the Texans want to play, though.
