    It's being reported that OB wants to go into training camp with only 3 QB's. So, who do you feel will be the odd man out?


    EDIT: It should be Fitzpatrick, instead of Fitzgerald. I had a brain fart. :D

    I wanted to vote for Yates, but I can't shake the feeling it's going to be Keenum.

    I think Yates will be cut. One thing that's been noted about keenum is his exuberance for the game. OB likes football guys. I think keenum fits the offense a little better...jmo. I also think he has the higher upside.

    I never got the feeling from Yates that he was dying to be a starter. I just didn't get the vibe that he wanted to be the guy...the leader.

    But I have no idea what's going on behind the scenes there. Going to be interesting to discuss when it happens.

    I think Yates fits the mold that OB looks for in a QB and according to rumors, they had an offer for a late round pick in the last draft for Yates and declined.

    So I think Keenum is going to be cut but I hope not because I really don't like Yates.

    I honestly think that Keenum's hometown fanfare is gonna keep him on the roster and conversely get Yates cut.

    Sad really b/c honestly he and Keenum are more alike than they are different in terms of their upside. Yet some fans have no problem making a definitive judgement on Yates but have come up with every excuse in the world for Keenum.

    I think of Yates these days as a "camp arm", he was chosen specifically to run Kubiak's system. The only way I see BoB hanging on to him is he sees more upside than Keenum.

    I remember reading that Yates had injury concerns that affected his chances of winning the backup job last season. I can't search for a source for that since I'm at work.

    What works in Keenum's favor is that he has more of a tendency to keep his eyes downfield, and he's accurate.

    I hope that it is Fitzpatrick. That would mean that he got outplayed by both Yates and Keenum. Fitzpatrick is a placehoilder. The faster he is gone, the better it will be for the Texans.

    Personally, I'd like to cut both Keenum and Yates. Given the fact there will be a lot of players cut over the next couple months, I think it's a distinct possibility.

    I had to choose one, so I chose Keenum. A lot has been made of the prototypical O'Brien QB and Keenum doesn't fit. Plus, he was really bad toward the end of the season. He refused to take check downs and hot routes when they were running wide open underneath. He either couldn't or chose not to read blitzes that my mom could see. Always tried to win the game in one play.

    Prepare to be flamed by the Keenum Fan Club.


    I don't at all disagree with your assessment.

    Keenum. Let him find a new home maybe Baltimore or Cleveland let him test the market for better situation now so that he can catch on with another team.

    I don't need Yates to be a starter just reliable, cheap insurance in back-up roll. Great young man, keeps quiet, minds his buisness & never I mean never complains.

    Fitzpatrick has a couple years here to bring experience & leadership to the table for younger guys. Not costing much either!

    Savage should groom into starters role but will have to earn it.

    Yeah, and that's fine. I still have all the games recorded (no clue why) and crank one up when ever there's nothing worth watching on TV. It truly is painful to watch. Especially later in the season where teams knew he struggled under pressure.

    By no means am I saying Yates is that much better. I just think Yates would at least take what the defense gives him

    It was apparent in the very first game he started (KC). On multiple occasions they bring only 4 defenders but would do so by overloading one side or the other and he failed to recognize it and make the adjustment in protection & route combination (hot route). Those were things he did have the ability to change within the scope of Kubiak's audible system.

    That pretty much became par for the course as the season wore on.

    I'd give him a pass for that first game or two had he shown improvement in that aspect as the season went on but it appeared to me he got worse , not better.

    I fully expect Yates to surprise some people here this preseason.

    Yates has always dealt with getting more **** than he deserved (at UNC it was similar), and he always improved and got better. I don't see this being any different.

    Yes, I'm full UNC homer here.
