The Texans’ Hands-Off Owner

The most interesting feature of the McNair fire-a-thon was the disclosure that Case Keenum is the starting QB for the remainder of the season.  I think that should end all speculation as to whether the Texans’ owner is the polite, modest, reserved, big-picture owner he appears to be – or just a slightly more dignified version of Jerry Jones.  Not to say Al Davis.   Wonder whether interim coach Wade Phillips was given any other instructions regarding his choice of the lineups – for example, is Phillips  permitted to bench the #2 draft choice, Mr. Swearinger,  the next time #36 tries to decapitate a running back rather than making the tackle or the next time he commits yet another costly penalty?
