Matt Schaub‘s recent struggles have been well documented. His play has been the main reason why the Houston Texans‘ have failed so far in 2013. Now heading into week seven, the Texans have a date with the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and they still don’t know who will behind center. T.J. Yates and Case Keenum are both in the running to get the nod, but it’s anyone’s guess at this point.
So it’s with that uncertainty at QB that the internet has started to blow up with Tim Tebow rumors. Despite no reliable sources linking the popular QB to Houston, the chatter still exists. Why? Is anyone’s guess.
The Texans may have hit bottom in week six when fans cheered Schaub’s leg injury, but the signing of Tebow would certainly top that. This team would have to be absolutely desperate to bring in QB the caliber of the former Heisman trophy winner. Sure, Tebow and Arian Foster could probably tear it up on the ground, but the Texans are a team that relies the passing game.
Tebow tossing the pigskin to Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins is a laughable concept. It just flat out wouldn’t work.
So for those Texans’ fans who keep seeing the unemployed QB’s name linked to their team, don’t worry. There’s less than a one percent chance of the signing taking place. Houston needs to see what it has in Yates and Keenum, who are both clearly better pro QBs than Tebow ever will be.
