QB's "progressing at the same rate"

Posted Jun 5, 2014

Head coach Bill O'Brien gave an update on the Texans quarterback competition at OTAs.

The Texans have four quarterbacks on the roster.

One will start.

One will most likely get cut before the regular season.

And as he's done for the past month, head coach Bill O'Brien has maintained that the quartet is all on relatively even footing thusfar through organized team activities (OTAs).

"It’s new to everybody so they’re all progressing at the same rate as far as their knowledge of the system,” O'Brien said Thursday.

With holdovers Case Keenum and T.J. Yates, Houston signed Ryan Fitzpatrick in free agency and spent a fourth round selection on Pitt's Tom Savage. Their position coach George Godsey, according to O'Brien, has done a good job so far.

"Each guy has gone in there and had some good moments and each guy has had some moments that weren’t so good," O'Brien said. "But it looks to me that position is being coached very well and is progressing right along like we expected it to.”

With a decade's experience in the NFL, Fitzpatrick is the odds-on favorite to be under center September 7 in the regular season opener versus Washington. O'Brien explained that Fitpatrick's football brain and experience in the League is why the Texans went after, and ultimately signed him.

"We liked the fact that he had played a bunch of football," O'Brien said. "We liked the fact that he had played football in a similar system, relative to Chan Gailey’s system in Buffalo. We liked the fact that he was a guy that we thought would be a good system fit, meaning he was an intelligent guy, a good leader and a guy that was an accurate passer."

Fitzpatrick and the Texans have OTAs Monday through Friday next week, with a break on Wednesday.
