QB's look ahead after struggles vs. Cards

Posted Aug 9, 2014

The Texans quarterbacks struggled like the rest of the team in the loss to Arizona. But they're looking to learn from the experience.

The NFL is a very humbling game.  

Ryan Fitzpatrick said those words in the aftermath of the Texans’ 32-0 loss at Arizona.

Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and Tom Savage were unable to muster much offense in the defeat. That quarterback trio combined to go 11-of-22 for 98 passing yards and a pair of interceptions. But the veteran of 10 years in the NFL took the tough performance in stride.

“I think perspective is very important in this League,” Fitzpatrick said. “I’m disappointed in myself and the way I played. The final score. The way everything turned out.”

Fitzpatrick was picked off twice in the first half, the second coming at the Arizona 15-yard line. While the mood was down, there was still a focus on improvement.

“I think there’s disappointment in the locker room,” Fitzpatrick said. “We just need to keep working, keep working, and hopefuly we’ll have better results the next few weeks.”

To start the second half, Case Keenum and the offense were flagged for a delay of game.

“The presnap penalties, those are most of the time on the quarterback and I take responsibility for those,” Keenum, who went 3-of-5 for 25 yards. “That’s part of managing the game. Every little play, I’m going to nitpick and go back and look at the throws and the checks and the reads.”

The rookie Savage played the final two series of the game, and was sacked twice. One resulted in a safety. While he wasn’t satisfied with his performance, he was able to gain from his brief time on the field.

“It was a good learning experience, definitely, to finally get out there on an NFL field,” Savage said.

The Texans have Sunday off and will return to the practice field Monday morning at the Houston Methodist Training Center.


It was good to get out there in a live game. I didn't really get hit all that much. Kinda knocked the rust off a little bit.

In terms of the execution and the turnovers, it was obviously not what we wanted out there tonight.

To have an opportunity at the end there, to go through the two minute drill, that was good for me to get out there and do it.

Bottom line, we have to go out there and execute. We didn’t do that tonight.

It’s the truth. You gotta learn from it. Move on. It is the first preseason game so we’re going to move on and learn from it and get better and continue to move forward.
