The strangest decision of the day for not only the Houston Texans, but maybe the NFL, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak benched quarterback Case Keenum for former starter Matt Schaub.

It seems that Keenum is healthy, so I can’t really understand why Keenum was replaced in the game.

Keenum was benched with a stat line of 13-of-24 for 170 yards with one interception and one touchdown. The TD pass was 42 yards to Garrett Graham in the second quarter.

Schaub on his first two drives in the second half was 4-for-10 with 74 yards, and has been pretty much booed since he’s arrived in the game. He did lead the Texans to field goal position on his second drive.

I interested to hear what Kubiak says his reasoning was for the change at the quarterback position during this game with the Oakland Raiders.

Kubiak did give a warning this week when he said basically said Keenum wasn’t the shoe-in starter for the rest of the season.

We’ll just have to wait and see how this all turns out. Again, I’m confused with this decision.

What are your thoughts on this change in the lineup? Was it the right or wrong decision for the Texans to make?

Let us know.
