On ESPN.com Tania Ganguli answered a question that had been asked of her as to why folks aren’t talking about quarterback Case Keenum who was the Houston Texans starting QB for eight games last season.

It is a valid question like she said, and part of her answer was:

"“What McNair saw in the next game, before a thumb injury ended his season, was a quarterback who had trouble adjusting to pressure and who tried to use his legs to get out of trouble far too often. Sure, when his improvisation succeeded the results were impressive, but those times were the exception.”"

She also wrote:

"“He made the wrong decision repeatedly.”"

I agree with those comments. Keenum was a nice spark for the Texans at the beginning of the tryout at starting QB in a lost season, but overall he just isn’t the guy to lead the Texans to a Super Bowl or even to the playoffs. That is just my opinion.

Keenum should be on a roster, but he’s not a franchise QB.

The Ultimate Texans had a post on the Pro Bowl where Duane Brown was selected by Team Sanders, joining J.J. Watt in the exhibition game.

House of Houston wrote about how the Texans coaching staff is working hard at the Senior Bowl. The article also has inks to other Texans and Houston news.

Here is an article from the Official Houston Texans website about Senior Bowl QBs and how they are high on the team.

Deepi Sidhu wrote:

"“Eastern Illinois graduate Jimmy Garoppolo, the MVP of this year’s East-West Shrine game seemed enthusiastic about the possibility of playing for the Texans despite the 2-14 record in 2013.”"

If the Texans take any of the QBs playing at the Senior Bowl than that means they won’t be using their No. 1 overall pick on a QB, unless they would draft two QBs in the first four rounds like the Washington Redskins did a couple seasons ago.
