The Houston Texans are in a familiar position. They have a quarterback that has been struggling.
Head coach Bill O’Brien has previously decided to yank the other quarterbacks when they’ve struggled. However, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, he hasn’t considering doing that with their prized free agent acquisition.
Brock Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Texans after playing last season with the Denver Broncos. Osweiler looked very bad in the Texans loss to the Broncos.
The 25-year-old is expected to be the Texans quarterback for the future. However, he shouldn’t even be their quarterback right now.
He made zero plays and showed little courage, as the Broncos defense were looking for revenge. Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian has played better than Osweiler this season.
In seven games, Osweiler has gone 156 of 268 for 1,533 yards. He also has eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.
This is his first season as a full-time starter after backing up Peyton Manning the past several years with the Broncos.
His playing last season is showing why Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak would go with Manning — at 70% — over a healthy Osweiler. If he plays like he did last night, he’s going to be on the bench again, like he was in Denver, with Tom Savage being the starter.
