07:13 AM ET 10.22 | With some time to think about Case Keenum's impressive debut in Kansas City, coach Gary Kubiak declined an opportunity to name him as the starter against Indianapolis. Kubiak did, however, leave the door open just enough to make you think Keenum may, indeed, return to the lineup against the Colts after completing 15-of-25 for 271 yards and a touchdown. "I've got to sit down and look at our situation and what's going on right now," Kubiak said. "Obviously, Matt's our starting quarterback. Case (Keenum) played this week because Matt wasn't healthy. Case went in and played extremely well. I'm going to sit down -- we're on a bye week -- (and) I'm going to evaluate where we're at as a team and move forward from there. So I'm going to do that everywhere, not just at the quarterback position."

Aka, "this is going to be a building year" with a new starting QB and a D that is shredded by injuries and lackluster play (ie, Ed Reed).

I believe the consensus on Ed Reed during the offseason was - DONE!!!

Rebuild now and return to mediocrity in the future.

so much for them being the BEST team in Texas, although that's not saying much.

Um, Gary? Hi, it's Jay Cutler, how are you doing?

Yup... especially that Ed Reed thing.

That was a bad signing that just everyone saw coming. Stealin' money.

Translation: "Schaub is toast. Keenum is our guy now, and will be the starter as long as he plays decently."

Would that be Texa's A&M?

To be fair, while it points to the dreaded "rebuilding" mode, Keenum wasn't too shabby last Sunday. I could joke and say he's the only Houston QB not to throw a pick-six this year, but at least they can hit targets unlike like the unholy triumvirate of Viking QBs this year.

Allen High School, though Southlake Carroll is back in the top ten.

Baylor or TT...

If that one is on TV in your neck of the woods, check it out.

Makes sense. He's trying to save his job.. Might be too late though.

LOL!!! Ole Ed Reed got away with a big bag of money didn't he ?

Dyed his beard too look a few years younger and all.

It's not Reed's fault, he spent all his offseason trying to blow through Murder She Wrote and Golden Girl's marathons, how can he be expected to get in shape post surgery and keep his skills sharp?

October 22, 2013  11:01 AM ET

The Team has to be Buildt only Champions Rebuild!

October 22, 2013  12:35 PM ET

I see where the Texans released 3 players for smoking pot in the team hotel in KC this past weekend.

October 22, 2013  01:24 PM ET

Lost season. Time for a fire-sale.

NO, NO. Don't play Keenum again. Ever. Pull a Matt Flynn with him. One decent game, sit him, and teams will give you a first rounder for him. Honest....
