    Who do y'all think gets the start. I assume Schaub will be healthy.

    Does the city riot if Kubiak goes with anyone other than Keenum?

    I voted Schaub because Kubiak is, well, Kubiak.

    Keenum. There is no reason to go back to Schaub.

    I think kubiak will stick with keenum.

    Kubiak's policy is you cannot lose your job to injury. I still voted for keenum because It's who I think should.

    I agree ..... That was easily the best performance by a Texans QB this season and in damn near a year going back to last season.

    They had more big plays in one game , against the leagues best defense than they had all season .... No way Kubiak goes back to Schaub.

    I think it's up in the air right now unless I missed an official statement by somebody from the Texans organization. I was almost sure that Kubiak would start Schaub as soon as the game was over, until I remembered something. Kubiak and Smith like to screw with injury reports, the IR list, and the reporting of injuries. I believe there is a possibility that Schaub doesn't "heal up" enough to start at the Colts, and Kubiak decides to use the bye week to cram as much as he can into Keenum's head (Son of a coach and all). Schaub knows the system, he can come in off of not practicing and you're going to get pretty much what Schaub has to offer.

    I'm sure this question will be asked at the press conference today, so my little "scenario" can easily be dis-proven rather quickly. So I went with what I believed would be better for the Texans and voted Keenum.

    Sorry, Monday morning brain fart. An admin at least changed it on the main post title.

    If the question is asked today at the presser, I guarantee the response will be:

    "Well, we'll have to evaluate where Matt is with his recovery. Right now I don't know how far along he'll be, so I can't answer that question."

    Now, if he's asked who's going to start if both men are healthy, Kubiak will say:

    "Well, we'll have to evaluate them both in practice and make a decision from there."

    He's going to avoid that question like Neo going into bullet time to avoid getting shot. He's going to pull some Matrix-esque crap on the press room and be complete non-committal.

    Which leads me to believe he'll build a case (no pun) for Schaub.

    But this season is lost and the ONLY shot of saving his job rests with Case.

    I WANT case to start, but my head says Gary will go back to Matt, who is his doppelganger in mind, spirit, and body. Not a testicle to share between them.

    Kubiak deserves lettuce and tomatoes thrown at him if he goes back to Schaub.

    You obviously can not lose your job to setting the NFL record for pick 6s either, but it should be Keenum.

    I think it depends on whether or not Schaub still has the locker room. Keenum made some exciting plays, especially the off schedule ones, but it's not like he had the offense running up and down the field. For all of his mobility, he was still sacked 5 times, fumbled twice and gave up the game winning TD.

    As beautiful as Keenum's deep ball is, Schaub still gives you the best chance to win on Sunday. He's not going to chuck a pick 6 every week, despite the fan hysteria.

    If Schaub doesn't start, It's either because he's lost the team or he's still injured. Keenum looks like the heir apparent at this point.

    If Kubiak goes back to hum-drum Schaub, he will absolutely lose that locker room. although he played like a rookie at times, Keenum made the game exciting. He was unshaken, unwavered by a team that has a dominating defense in a stadium that is stoopid loud. Keenum acted like it was no big deal, and to him it probably wasn't. Sometime ignorance is bliss...

    Even thought they lost, the offense knows they have something in Keenum and to go back to Run, Run, Check down & punt, you will demoralize the team more than they already are.

    You stay with the kid, prepare him for the next 2 week, work on hot routes and blitz protection then come out slinging against the Colts.
