Case Keenum was good, not great against the Chiefs. In Gary Kubiak’s mind he didn’t do enough to win the job. “Matt’s our starting quarterback,” Kubiak said of the veteran Schaub. “Case played this week.” Kubiak said he would re-evaulate the position during the Texans’ bye week.

The Houston Texans are at a crossroads. They are now 2-5, sit three-full games behind Indianapolis in a division that was supposed to be theirs, and are now playing musical chairs at the quarterback position.

Case Keenum could get prolonged look as Texans starting QB

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak “loves” Case Keenum according to several people close to him and has long been raving about the raw potential in the former un-drafted quarterback.

Gary Kubiak On Brian Cushing’s Knee: It Doesn’t Look Good

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was forthright when he stated that...

Chiefs continue unbelievable run from worst to first, knock off Texans 17-16

Case Keenum Isn’t World Beater, But He Gives Texans More Hope Than Matt Schaub

The Texans’ playoff hopes were dealt another crushing blow on Sunday, but there may have been a silver lining in the loss.

Yates doing nothing to instill confidence in his abilities, the Texans turned to undrafted second-year quarterback Case Keenum to lead the offense. The situation wasn’t...

Case Keenum Could Get Extended look As Texans Starting QB

The Case Keenum era starts today in Houston, and if the quarterback performs well, he could get an extended look as the Texans starter.

Texans kick three players off team for smoking pot

Absolutely nothing is going right for the Houston Texans this season. Locked in a five-game slide where most of quarterback Matt Schaub’s completions have been Pick-Sixes, the team was dealt a crushing blow when linebacker Brian Cushing was lost for the season in a 17-16 loss to Kansas City. That was coming off a weekend where the city’s most iconic and beloved football figure...

Texans Still Planning on Going Forward With Matt Schaub

Case Keenum played well against the Kansas City Chiefs, but did he play well enough to wrap up the job? Gary Kubiak doesn't seem to think so.  From Bleacher Report The Houston Texans are floundering.

Texans Quarterbacks Coach Sees Some Doug Flutie in Case Keenum

G$ Ranks The Nation's Quarterbacks

Beano Cook just got a huge dead boner. There is no doubt that one of the most annoying things about NFL coverage is when people rank quarterbacks (especially when throwing around that ELITE label). Does it even matter at all? What purpose does it serve if someone has Matt Schaub ranked ahead of Sam Bradford? That **** is just a waste of time…and I always fall for it anyway because...
