Houston Texans Might As Well Give Up On Case Keenum
Case Keenum might as well face reality: the coaches don’t like him with the Houston Texans.
Of course, unless the Texans win the rest of their games to finish out the regular NFL season, they might be gone before Keenum is. Plus, Keenum still has that strong Houston and Texas background. But it might not keep him on the roster.
The Texans quarterback was yanked from Thursday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He wasn’t actually that bad as a passer, going 16-of-29 for 159 yards and a touchdown with an interceptions, but he couldn’t get the Texans on the board as much as he should have. He wasn’t facing a very good Jacksonville defense. The team was down 24-10 when he was yanked and Matt Schaub, his replacement, immediately took the offense to the end zone.
Keenum doesn’t seem to be worth the investment as a No. 1 quarterback, especially for the Texans. He can’t get first downs for the offense often. The book is also out on Keenum that he can’t react to blitzes.
In his three games prior to the battle with Jackson, Keenum had one touchdown pass and three interceptions. In Keenum’s defense, he has a lack of talent to work with on the Texans’ offense. But Schaub hasn’t done much better overall. The Texans are likely go shopping for a new set of quarterbacks during the offseason. Keenum might find a hard time latching onto another team.
