Stop me if you heard this one before: the Houston Texans lost on Sunday. It was another disappointing effort and result from the team in Week 15, as they fell to the Indianapolis Colts. This time, however, they had a player step up and take responsibility for the loss.

Quarterback Case Keenum spoke about the performance after the game and he didn’t give himself a positive evaluation.

I was bad,” Keenum said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I am just not making the play when I need to. It hurts me for my teammates. Letting those guys down, letting my coaches down and letting the Texans’ fans down, because they deserve better, too.”

It’s good for Keenum to step up and take responsibility, but it comes at a bad time.

Houston has the inside track to No. 1 overall pick where they could take one of the top rookies in the draft, so Keenum’s comments were risky. If he continues to play this way over the next two weeks, he may leave the team with no choice than to go with a rookie.
