Houston Texans coach, Gary Kubiak, announced this Monday that Case Keenum will be the starting QB for Sunday's game against the Colts. Despite having a healthy Matt Schaub, Kubiak decided to give Keenum another chance per his amazing performance against the KC Chiefs.
The Texans fans were looking for a new spark that could ignite this team and they might have found it with Keenum, a college star at UH that went undrafted two years ago. The 25 year old QB from Abilene, TX is faster and more agile than Schaub and TJ Yates and in today's NFL that is becoming a standard. Kubiak said. "I want to see him (Case) move forward. He’s got to improve. He’s definitely got to go and improve. With this football team we’re playing, our football team’s got to improve around him. Like I said, a decision for this week.”
Sunday's game won't be an easy one for Keenum, in matter of fact it might actually be a tougher game than the one against KC. The Colts come to Reliant Stadium after defeating a 7-0 Denver Broncos and Andrew Luck keeps getting better. This will be a showdown between two Houstonians, Luck was raised in Houston, that fans won't want to miss and perhaps this could end up being the game of the year for the Texans.
