After what might have been … OK it was, the worst offensive performance of the first week of the preseason, Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien possibly hinted at a change with the quarterbacks of the Texans.
Pro Football Talk had a quote from O’Brien on Sunday, saying:
“Any time you have a chance to review things and regroup a little bit on a day off like it is today, as a head coach, you’re always thinking about things that can make the team better, whether that’s a change in the depth chart, a change in a scheme, a change of a position of a player, whatever it may be. We’ll continue to discuss that today.”
O’Brien didn’t say exactly what spot he could change that might make the Texans better, but he has to be looking at the QB spot for the fact Ryan Fitzpatrick was so off as the QB. Fitzpatrick had two interceptions in one half of football and no touchdowns as the Texans lost to the Arizona Cardinals, 32-0 in the preseason opener.
I wish the Texans would have given Case Keenum more than a quarter at the QB spot, but maybe the play of Fitzpatrick did more for Keenum’s cause to get a preseason start than Keenum actually throwing the football.
This quarterback problem is an unfortunate hurdle for the Texans, but it will give us something to keep an eye out on this preseason.
