Keenum to start in place of Schaub

Keenum gets Week 7 start: Well, the Matt Schaub era seems like it’s coming to an end, which means its time for me to go QB shopping. Case Keenum finally gets his first taste of NFL action after playing college ball in as pass-happy of an offense as you’ll find.  The good news is he can make all the throws that will be asked of him since he probably attempted all of them under Kevin Sumlin. The bad news? His first start comes against the Chiefs on the road. No big deal … only the most intimidating and productive defense in the league. Go get’em, kid! This would be like finding out that your son’s first little league at-bat will […]

Texans get bad news regarding TE Daniels

TE Daniels will miss significant time: Just when Texans fans thought the news couldn’t get much worse, it’s now being reported that Owen Daniels will be placed on the IR with designation to return after six weeks. He’ll officially miss 4-6 weeks, but per league rules, the earliest he can return would be Week 14. The official diagnosis on Daniels is a non-displaced fibula fracture — ouch — that happened during Sunday’s blowout loss in San Francisco. This is a huge blow to the Texans offense — not because Daniels was posting monster stats this season (40 catches, 252 yards, 3 TDs) — but with Matt Schaub really struggling to find some consistency, having longtime teammate and friend Daniels as an […]

Texans sticking with Schaub

Kubiak sticking with Schaub: When asked about Matt Schaub’s future as Houston’s starter, here’s what head coach Gary Kubiak had to say: “He’s our quarterback,” the coach told reporters on Monday, “I believe in him. He’s a strong kid, but it’s going to be a tough week.” Translation: I really don’t know. This is similar to a dreaded vote of confidence. Kubiak has also criticized Schaub’s ability to audible as well as his decision making ability. Then he went on to blame himself for putting Schaub in bad situations as a coach. The likelihood of sticking with Schaub beyond this season seems very low, but despite the interceptions, his fantasy numbers haven’t been too bad.  He’s had 298 or more passing […]

Ponder’s time as starter winding down?

Cassel closer to starting?: Lezlie Frazier recently said he hopes Christian Ponder plays on Sunday against the Steelers, but I don’t know how broken up the coaching staff would be if they were forced to go with Matt Cassel. Ponder has more INTs (5) this year than TD passes (2), and he has yet to crack 240 passing yards in a game. In other words, he’s been operating at about a C- level all year long.  If Ponder plays well in London, he’ll be given a moratorium. If not, Cassel will likely start after the bye. Jim Brown endorses Richardson trade: The Browns made a huge trade splash by recently sending Trent Richardson to the Colts, and former NFL great […]
