    Seems many of the UH QB put up big numbers. I like Keenum and if Dallas took a flyer on him late in the draft I would not be upset but I admit I'm leery of the QB's that have came out of that program because it seems to be more about the system they play in as opposed to overall talent

    Just curious: has the coaching regime that Keenum played under had any NFL QB prospects before him?
    Was Kolb one their guys?

    I didn't get to see a whole lot of Russell Wilson this year but as a backup I could care less how tall he is.


    For me I want a backup QB who is mobile and use that to their ability when they have to come in cold off the bench.

    That's why I like McGee as the backup right now because he makes progress every year as a passer and he can run.



    If we're looking for a starter then yes let's find someone more prototypical.

    Yes Kolb was part of that program under Briles.

    never mind. I looked it up.

    Kolb played under Art Briles....same HC that RG3 has.

    Keenum played under Kevin Sumlin--who was out of Oklahoma. That makes sense, as Houston's offense does resemble Oklahoma's, but they didn't have an A Peterson or DeMarco Murray.

    I could see why some would be wary: as good as the OU QBs have been over the years at the college level (Heisman's, etc), Sam Bradford is the only one to pan out at the next level.

    I do think Keenum will make someone's team next year.

    I'm sure Keenum will get drafted and make someone team. Beyond that I have questions about his overall skills as a QB. Sumlin really did not come in and change much of what Briles did and had put in place.
