On Wednesday he made his return to the practice field. Rather than stick to some nice safe platitudes he decided to throw everyone for a loop.
Fans will not like what he said.
Kubiak won't commit to starting Keenum the rest of the season. "He has to continue to play well to stay in there." #Texans

He went on to talk about how hard Matt Schaub has been working and that he wants to get back on the field. Conventional wisdom would say that's nuts. Not only is he an interception machine but Keenum has been playing well.
Why rock the boat now? True, the team still isn't winning, but at least they are competitive.
Some might say that the team's second half struggles the last couple of games are Keenum's fault, but I'd say it's more of a playing calling issue. If Kubiak doesn't see it that way there is a good chance that we will see Schaub back on the field.
His loyalty to his quarterback of many years is admirable, but if he doesn't start thinking about what's best for the franchise he might find himself updating his resume after the end of the season.
