A commemorative Haiku for our beloved Brock Osweiler.
Brock n’ Roll is dead.
Yes, the Brockroach has been squashed!
Paper covers Brock.
Not the type of guy to relish over a non-rival player losing his starting job, but Brock Osweiler is one of those guys I simply cannot stand to watch. He’s bred from the Church of Eternal QB Backups who should never touch the field – guys like Charlie Whitehurst, Bruce Gradkowski, Blaine Gabbert, Josh Freeman, Geno Smith, Mark Sanchez…and new first-half-of-his-first-game inductee, Nathan Peterman.
Osweiler shouldn’t have ever been the guy to step in and have people saying, “well he has played in the system before so maybe he’ll be better than Trevor Siemian.” Brock throws 90% of his passes under 10 yards and has a 53% completion rating. How is that even possible for a starting NFL QB? I know he has the build of a Joe Flacco, but he has the chops of a Nate Kaeding trying to hit a field goal in the playoffs.
Rooting for Paxton Lynch to come through for the Broncos. The first-rounder was a monster at Memphis and hoping that his prowess in college will translate to at least mediocre success at the NFL level. That way Denver can finish 6-10 and not take one of the QBs that my Jets need in the draft.
