Brock Joins Houston

I thought it was all sorted once Peyton Manning called time on his tenure with Denver Broncos.

The thing I assumed would happen following Manning's retirement was that Brock Osweiler would negotiate a new deal and become the team's starting quarterback.

Cue the Family Fortunes sound effect when the answer is incorrect.


Osweiler, as soon as he became a free agent yesterday night, went and got a deal with the Houston Texans.

In one sense, I'm not surprised. He did well covering for the seven games that Manning was out injured last season. There are also reports that he was unhappy with the way he was treated (being benched when Manning was fit despite winning five of seven games). To be honest, I would have felt the same if it were me.

I am sure I've written this on the blog before, but it's worth repeating: Denver wouldn't have been in a position to make the playoffs if not for Osweiler, but especially the Broncos' defence, so he does have a point.

I'm intrigued to see how he fares with the new team. I'm even more interested to see how the Broncos act now. The team has lost two quarterbacks in a short space of time. Very peculiar scenario for the world champs.

There I was thinking I was done writing about the Denver Broncos. It only lasted two days!
