Wanted: Brock Osweiler

Wanted: Brock Osweiler

Nia Caldwell

Swallowed by the boos of spiteful Denver Broncos fans, Brock Osweiler strutted onto his old stomping grounds, ready to earn something not yet accomplished this season: a win on the road. 107 passing yards, and zero touchdowns later, it was clear Osweiler would not achieve  his goal.

The Texans appeared to be ready for their Monday night duel after coming back to beat rivals, the Indianapolis Colts; surprised, Houston was warily skyhigh.

But on Monday Night Football, the team disintergrated in front of the whole nation.

The main cause of their inefficiency seems to be Brock Osweiler. After going 0-7 on throws 15+ yards downfield and 18-34 in passing attempts overall, Osweiler collapsed, only to deliver his worst game yet.

Failing to connect with top receiver, Deandre Hopkins, Osweiler is making his job much harder. During the first seven games during the 2015-16 season, Hopkins had 776 yards with two different average quarterbacks. This season through seven games, Hopkins has just 390 yards. Osweiler’s inaccuracy is not only costing the team wins, but costing Hopkins the stats needed to elevate his legacy.

Although the defense and special teams could step up, Osweiler’s erratic inconsistency is most troubling.

With the Detroit Lions visiting NRG Stadium this Sunday, Osweiler little time to muster up some of the $72 million dollar talent the Texans seemingly wasted.
