Brock Osweiler apparently doesn’t want to emulate Tom Brady

AP

After four years spent behind Peyton Manning (but seven games in front of him), Brock Osweiler left Denver. Now free from Peyton’s shadow, Osweiler has found himself in Tom Brady’s, sort of.

Playing for a head coach who once tutored #Tommy, Osweiler doesn’t really want to hear about the long-time quarterback of the Patriots.

They refer to Tom Brady a lot,” Osweiler said Friday regarding coach Bill O’Brien and offensive coordinator George Godsey, via the Houston Chronicle. “With all due respect to Coach O’Brien and Coach Godsey, I’ve told them I’m going to be me. I’m not here to be a puppet, if you will. I’m going to be who I am and believe in what I bring to the table every day.”

On one hand, the desire to be his own man is admirable. On the other hand, he should welcome the opportunity to emulate Tom Brady.

If Osweiler plays well, none of this will matter. If he doesn’t, his refusal to embrace doing things the way Brady did them could make O’Brien regret the sight-unseen transaction that brought Osweiler to Houston for $38 million fully guaranteed.

  1. I hope that Osweiler enjoys his SB 50 ring, because it’s the last one he’ll ever get. No way was he worth the money Texas threw at him, but hey, desperation calls for desperate measures.

    That’s right. Brock deflates his own balls.

    lol. You need someone to deflate them for you so you can spend that time filming the opponent practice.

  3. Brock, order your ball boys to deflate your footballs, then smash your cell phone when the NFL asks for it, you can be just like Tom Shady.

  4. Cheating aside, emulating or learning form Brady’s approach to the practices and games isn’t a bad thing. He is one of the best QBs in history after all

  5. Osweiler wants to emulate Osweiler. Good luck with that, superstar. Big paycheck is not the same as big accomplishments.

  6. Brock and tb12 should never ever be included in the same sentence. Brock got beaten out by a 40 year old qb on hgh that couldnt throw more than 10 yards.

  7. Instead he did a good job of emulating Brian Hoyer at the end of last year, which is why he got benched again for Manning, lol. Oh boy, this is going to be spectacularly bad because he’s mediocre and really is believing because he got paid that he’s actually good.

  8. Is this a message board for 12 year olds? One thing Deflategate has done is shown that the NFL has the most immature fans of any sport. Frankly, I’m embarrassed to call myself a fan after reading some of these post. What a bunch of lames.

  9. I too would be against being compared to a QB I outplayed the only time we played against each other. Let’s not forget Brock is 1-0 against Brady not the other way around.

  10. Agree with Brock. There is s tendency by coaches to take a great QB’s experiences and then overlay it onto another guy. That doesn’t work very well. Every QB is a completely different talent and should be treated as such.

  11. Not well-liked by ASU teammates, Stretch is all-in on the “I gotta be me” thing. As a betting man, I’ll give you odds: no way.

    Not wit JJ, not with that head coach, no way. By the way, here is O’brian’s “pedigree”:

    Browns (1993)
Tight ends coach

    Browns (1994)
Inside linebackers coach

    Georgia Tech (1995–1997)

    Graduate assistant
 Georgia Tech (1998–2000)
    
Running backs coach
 Georgia Tech (2001–2002)

    Offensive coordinator & quarterbacks coach 
Maryland (2003–2004)
Running backs coach
 Duke (2005–2006)

    Offensive coordinator & quarterbacks coach
 New England Patriots (2007)
Offensive assistant 
New England Patriots (2008)

    Wide receivers coach
 New England Patriots (2009–2010)
Quarterbacks coach
 New England Patriots (2011)

    Offensive coordinator
 Penn State (2012–2013)

    Head coach
 Houston Texans (2014–present)

  12. Maybe that’s part of the reason why Elway wouldn’t pay you Brock. That, and constantly getting balls batted at the line of scrimmage even though you have to duck when walking under the goal posts.

  13. Glad Brock doesn’t want to be him.

    Julian Edleman has apearently filled that position. Have you all seen the two smokeshows he is juggling!! Good god.

  14. Bill O’brien was a decent coach on the Pats. Problem he has now is he isnt coaching to be a contender, he’s coaching to try to be the patriots, which is the wrong way to go about it. Even on hard knocks, they brought up Brady and the Pats more than ANYTHING. Sure they are the franchise to model due to their success, but you need to do something to beat them, to win anything, not match em.

  15. If Osweiler is going to emulate Tommy, then the coaches will have to emulate filming the other teams signals and practices if they want to have the same type of “success.”

  16. Obviously, if he cant handle the film room and gets mad with trying to emulate the GOAT in theory, this might be the worst FA signing ever. Are you sure he’s better than Hoyer!?!!

    Lol. Brock is obviously a baby.

  17. Everyone must make their own mark in ANY career. Learning form others does not mean trying to be them. Take what works from others who mentor you and spin it to suit you. When you imitate a person you look ridiculous like Edelman does in copying EVER aspect of Brady’s life.

  18. There is no point trying to emulate TB12 not even close. He isn’t even in the class of the goat. Be youready own man and cash those checks. You’ll be gone soon enough.

    Have you seen Brock’s tattoo? “Live life to it’s fullest” I would’ve edited that, free, if he’d only asked. Too late now.
    ——————————
    I never knew about his tattoo. As much as I’d like to have $38 million, I wouldn’t want the brain that goes with it.

  20. In every physical skill in life, those who teach it tell their students to emulate those greats that they look up to who came before them. The final result is not to become a carbon copy of that person, but to build a foundation that those who have traveled before you have built. From any sport, to playing a musical instrument it would be folly not to absorb what’s useful and disregard what’s not. If you let your ego stop you from following that advice, you’re a fool.

    And in a couple of months he’ll be 0-1 against Garrapollo…

    Well, I’ll admit it’s fabulous that the name TB and the word “cheating” have become so commonly linked that now they’re forever part of NFL history.

    Who was the last famous cheating QB? Paul Horning?

    So Bill O’Brien was the NE OC for the 2007 season? Serioiusly!? I never new that! They balled that entire year! Oh wait…what happened in the SB then? Did O’Brien choke, or did TB? Come on, we all know somebody had to have choked!

  24. So Bill O’Brien was the NE OC for the 2007 season? Serioiusly!? I never new that!

    No that info is wrong. McDaniels was the Patriots OC in 2007, O’brien was an off asst until 2011 when he became the OC. He was also the HC at Penn St not the OC.

    seems somebody used wiki as a source for some reason

    Brady was beaten by the same 40 year old QB AND Brock!
