Gary Kubiak‘s job as the Houston Texans‘ head coach is hanging on by a thread. Therefore, Kubiak is making sure that the Texans don’t leave any stone unturned.
Now, Houston fans are absolutely disgusted with how Matt Schaub has been playing of late, so it was just a matter of time before Kubiak lifted his starting quarterback for a new face under center. Fortunately for Kubiak, Schaub injured his ankle in Week 6, which has opened the door for the Case Keenum era in Texas. Keenum is already a household name considering his collegiate success with the Houston Cougars, yet his NFL career has been full of clipboards and street clothes.
Despite signing with the Texans in 2012, Keenum has yet to play in an NFL game and his first start is coming against the 6-0 Kansas City Chiefs…on the road.
Arrowhead Stadium has been known as one of the loudest stadiums NFL history, which means the rookie signal-caller will have his word cut out for him on Sunday. Whether or not Keenum gets his first victory against Kansas City in Week 7 remains to be seen, but the expectation from Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is that Keenum can someday be as good as Tony Romo.
