George Springer | SI writers talk Rockets | Case Keenum


Houston Astros

While reserving most of their rhetorical ire for Comcast, the Astros’ legal team Thursday outlined differences with the Rockets, their partner in Comcast SportsNet Houston, in a statement filed in advance of next week’s hearing on whether the network should stay in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.


Houston Rockets

The Rockets are one of the most overrated teams in the league. I don’t think they’re a championship contender. I wouldn’t be shocked if they lost in the first round. If they make the second round, their season will be a success. They’re going to win a lot of games during the regular season, but they’re not built to go far in the playoffs.

Houston Texans

Houston’s Case Keenum was the most prolific quarterback in NCAA history, and he had a nice 2013 preseason after spending his rookie year of 2012 on the practice squad. Still, it was a bit much to expect Keenum to play well in his first NFL regular-season start, particularly given that he was facing the Kansas City Chiefs’ tremendous defense — at Arrowhead Stadium. He was doing so in an offense that had been dispirited by a series of mistakes over the previous five weeks, and Houston’s 17-16 loss to the Chiefs put them at 2-5 on the season.
