According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports,  Texans head coach Gary Kubiak loves quarterback Case Keenum so much that he could end up getting more than one start. 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. With Matt Schaub injured and unable to play — and already losing his grip on the starting job anyway — Keenum could end up starting more than one game, sources said, with the staff having been eager to get a look at him for quite some time. “Gary loves him,” said one source close to Kubiak. “He’s extremely cerebral. He doesn’t have that big arm but he fits their mold — he can extend plays and get out of the way. He understands the system. That’s going to be a tough environment but he shows a pulse and moves the team some, I bet he sticks with him after the (Week 8) bye.” The Texans didn’t have a choice but to start Keenum today.  Schaub

  • Congrats, Case Keenum! You really provided a much needed SPARK for the Texans players and the fans. Your Defensive unit delivered enough to get KC QB Alex Smith in check except for a quick TD walk in the end zone.

    Had your pass to the end zone been caught, the Texans may have come home with a W. So, in the 'bye' week, watch the tape and see where you can improve for the Nov 3 Sunday visit by the Indy Colts on an NBC SNF game. You can win over Oliver Luck...just watch Indy's Defense playing Peyton Manning tonight. Show the nation you are special in the SNF football on NBC in two weeks, Case. We enjoyed your plays except for the fumbles...which you can surely improve on.

    Find a way to play their game and elude them the best you can when they come to Houston after your BYE week. You certainly have all Texans fans excited this Sunday afternoon. Too bad that Brian Cushing got another injury, and may he recover quickly.
