And Our Mystery Quarterback Is...


...No longer a mystery. The Texans signed John Beck, formerly of the Redskins, to battlefight with University of Houston alum Case Keenum to be third string quarterback behind Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates.

For a third string quarterback, I'd say we could do (and have done) a lot worse for backups than Beck...though not by much. Beck has the benefit of having played under Papa and Baby Shan in Washington, so he, at least, has some familiarity with the offense. Which is good, I guess; although considering HOW he played in said offense, I still don't want to see him on the field any time soon, like ever.

Is Beck Kubiak's latest test subject in his "Quarterback Reclamation Project" or is he just a camp body to give Keenum competition for the last non-practice squad quarterback spot?

My thoughts can be found below the jump.

Personally, I think he'll be our third QB going into the season, and Keenum will land with the practice squad, barring a complete meltdown during training camp/preseason. But there's still plenty of time.

What do you think, BRB? Like the signing? Hate it? Want to go to Reliant with pitchforks and torches? If you answered yes to the third one then seek help. Add your comments below!
