Houston Texans: Answers to Issues at Quarterback Are Past Due
Houston Texans‘ quarterback Matt Schaub suffered a lower leg injury in an absolutely devastating, and potentially season-ending 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 6. He’s currently questionable for next week’s matchup with the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, and the question of whether to move on from the starter has become a case of “when”, not “if”.
The abysmal start to Schaub’s 2013 campaign has been much publicized. The QB has set an NFL record by throwing interceptions returned for touchdowns in four consecutive games. Only after Schaub went down to injury, his leg wrapped underneath Rams’ DE Chris Long, did backup T.J. Yates get his first shot this season and make the absolute least of it.
Yates kept the streak alive, throwing two interceptions of his own, one of which was returned for a 98-yard TD by St. Louis LB Alec Ogletree. His incompetence matched that of his starter shown through the first five-plus weeks. The Texans have three quarterbacks and not one of them has shown to be a viable option to compete in the NFL.
Houston fans are looking for answers from third-stringer and hometown favorite Case Keenum. If it were only that simple, the coaching staff would make a move in that direction. The Texans, only a few losses from being completely removed from the playoff hunt, will have to resign to the fact that a QB must be drafted high next May.
Houston is in luck, as this 2014 draft class is certainly one of the deepest at quarterback in recent memory. While drafting a QB to have success in the NFL is never a sure bet, 2014 may be a good year to take a gamble on someone to fill the deficiency.
It looks as if Houston has finally accepted the fact that they don’t currently have an answer to their quarterback quandary on the roster. What remains to be seen is how much worse 2013 can get for these Texans.
