12 Things to Watch for in Sunday's Colts-Texans Game
What does this have to do with anything?
It has been a couple of weeks since the Colts stunned the world with a brilliant win over the Broncos, and the NFL is going to make us wait just a few extra hours for their return. They return to prime time with a key divisional matchup against the Houston Texans. Here's what to watch for.
1. Watch for the Case. In one of the worst coaching moves in recent history, Gary Kubiak has decided to go with Case Keenum as his starting quarterback over an ostensibly healthy Matt Schaub. It's a total panic move and evidence that Kubiak is shaky coach at best. 14 months ago, the Texans invested ridiculous money in Schaub. Since last Thanksgiving, he's inexplicably become terrible. An injury opened the door for Keenum, and something in his play convinced the head coach to start him against the Colts. What that is, I have no idea. In the second half of the game, he completed six passes and took five sacks. His raw numbers weren't bad against Kansas City, but they were also inflated by a few long gains on short passes. Six of his completions went for more than 25 yards each and made up 201 of his 277 yards passing. There's no indication that he's the present or the future of anything. Starting Keenum is a complete panic move by Kubiak and illustrates that the 2013 Texans are going nowhere.no comments
