New, comments

Gary Kubiak officially announced what virtually every Texans fan thought he would. Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans when they host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night.

It's official. Case Keenum will remain the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans when the Colts come to town for Sunday Night Football.

This was really the only logical decision for Gary Kubiak to make given Case Keenum's performance against the Chiefs and Matt Schaub's injury. Curiously, Kubes denied that Schaub's injury played a role in his decision.

I'm not sure how much I believe that; if Matt Schaub hadn't gotten hurt in the Rams game, does anyone think Kubiak really would have benched him against the Chiefs?

In any event, this is the right call whether Schaub is too injured to play or not. Keenum earned another start with his play in Kansas City. Now we'll see how he fares under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football at Reliant Stadium.
