Fitzpatrick has thrown 2600 passes in the NFL. He is the starter, Savage is #2 and who cares what they do with the other two. We're coming off a 2-14 season. Time for some MAJOR changes! And that's what needs to happen and that's what's going to happen, like it or not. We're not going back to Case Keenum and business as usual like nothing happened especially after he was the QB during the pathetic 8 game disaster that ended the 2013 season. Are you kidding me?
And you're making this decision without even bothering to assess whether or not they ("they" being Yates and/or Keenum who played his college ball in the U-H spread) can operate better in the O'Brien's spread than they were in Kubiak's limited-audible, play action based offense...?

You're not even going to take a look to see what you might have...?? Just cut 'em now and get it over with..??

if fitzpatrick is starting that means its a lost season.

anybody clamoring for fitzpatrick is not a football fan. that is a lateral move that signals failure to your fanbase.

play keenum and find out if he has it or play savage and find out if we need to prioritize drafting a qb next year at a higher pick.

a vote for fitzpatrick is a vote for failure and mediocrity.

you ought to be ashamed of yourself if you want fitzpatrick to start.

Already seen what Keenum can do. Already seen what Yates can do. Neither one could make that jump from backup to starter, couldn't quite get it done for whatever reasons so they brought in two new quarterbacks. In with the new, out with the old. No player can change a teams fortunes greater than a quarterback and Keenum and Yates couldn't get the job done. Time to move on. Get over it.

I'm thinking the Texans can think of 4.5 million reasons. Guaranteed.
That money is already gone. Making a bad decision today that will affect tomorrow, to support a bad decision made yesterday is why we are where we are.

I really don't think Fitz has the slightest chance of not making the team this year. Sure the money is already gone but more than that I think the Texans either need him to start or need him to be there if whoever does start gets broken.

If you're starting Case Keenum you're already taking a leap of faith.

If Keenum gets crushed and knocked out for any length of time and all you got left in the cupboard is T.J. Yates then you didn't just take a leap of faith. You were criminally negligent. You must have someone on the team who has some real experience and who (if he should be beaten out of the starters job by Keenum) can pick up a new system with the number of practice reps that a backup gets.

That man is Ryan Fitzpatrick.

I think O'Brien is building the foundation for our future starting QB to stand on.

Maybe that QB is on the roster, but honestly, unless Savage shows and does something that nobody saw in his college career, I think O'Brien doesn't want to tie his horse to a wagon that he's stuck with for his entire Texans HC career. That won't happen with a 4th round pick or the other three scrubs on the roster like it would if he had picked up a QB in the first round.

Maybe one of these current jokers on the roster will rise to the occasion and surprise us all, but I think our future QB is playing for another team right now, either on the bench in the NFL or still in college.

I look forward to this season to see the changes that O'Brien brings and the potential monster defense, but until proven otherwise, I do not have high expectations for the QB position right now.

BUENO!
I hear you. I can't wait for preseason to get here just so we can see what this offense is going to look like and see how these guys we're talking about look in it. At this point I'm not even convinced that another QB move or pickup isn't in the cards. If we could hurry up and get to camp and get into the preseason we might learn something.

Y'all we might be getting VY here:

Texans Bias @TexansBias

Word around the league is Andre wants a black quarterback or he won't play for the Texans. Texans will be taking a good look at Vince Young



Texans Bias @TexansBias

Byron Leftwich will be privately working out for the Texans by the end of the week. #Texans #NFL

its a retooling year so I voted Fitz mostly b/c we know what he is....more importantly he knows what he is...a stop gap guy.

the last thing i want is to enter the season with Keenum and he doesn't prove he should be a starter or the back up & then we're back to where we are now with the excuse making. A backup with real starting potential could've done alot with 8 games to show he's the guy. We saw Favre do it in GB with not many more starts..Warner in STL straight off the street....Rodgers in GB after basically playing no meaningful ball for 3 years...

8 games is a lifetime. Stop making excuses....looking at you Lord Bills.

I'm really curious to see how Savage does. I wouldn't be surprised if he's good or bad. It's much easier to sit back and watch with a 4th round pick than a 1.1 pick.

I'm also very curious to know how BO'B and Smith had the other QB's rated. I really like the Texans draft this year, but if one of the other QB's turns into a great QB...

I hear you. I can't wait for preseason to get here just so we can see what this offense is going to look like and see how these guys we're talking about look in it.

I think Mallett is still on the table but BB wants to see how Garoppolo is going to pick up the offense before he decides if NE could stand losing Mallett this year.

Waiting is hell.

I dont believe for a minute that Johnson said he would continue to play for the Texans but only if the Quarterback was black. Johnson is a class act and would never say something like that and if he did the Texans would tell him dont let the door hit you on the way out. Johnson is at the very tail end of his career with maybe only one more good year left in him. Give me a break!

I think people are overstating the O'Brien-spread angle. His offense at New England relied heavily upon TE's and was pretty different from what Josh McDaniels has run there. His offense at Penn State was a mutli-TE pro style offense.

With the way that we drafted, I think it's clear that we will be more of a multi-TE and run based offense than a spread team.

I had watched a few Penn. St. Games.
He runs all kinds of gamut.
But there's no telling what variations OB will install here.
I expect the offense to start with less than a full package, and adding more as the season goes along.
Similar to what Wade did when he first got here.

He definitely won't stick to one style as Kubiak did during his tenure here. He's a bright offensive mind and not stubborn to "his system" like Kubiak was. But people on here keep talking about the O'Brien spread like we are going to run the Pats-Brady offense. I'm skeptical.

This might also have something to do with why AJ is pissed. He knows the offensive production is going to start shifting to the TE's and rbs...
