Brock Osweiler: We’re close to exploding on offense

There have been plenty of games this season when the play of quarterback Brock Osweiler was a major negative for the Texans, but he turned in one of his better games of the year in Green Bay on Sunday.

Osweiler didn’t turn the ball over while completing 22-of-35 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown in the 21-13 loss. While that wasn’t enough for the team to get a win or score more than two touchdowns for the second time this season, it was enough for Osweiler to say after the game that he feels the offense is close to catching fire.

“I feel like we’re very close to exploding as an offense,” Osweiler said, via ESPN.com. “We are three, four plays away from changing multiple football games. Because of that, I don’t think we can get discouraged. … We’re tired of being close. We really are, as a team. We’re all able to see it on the film. We see it on the film every single week that we’re so close to turning that corner.”

Sunday’s loss dropped the Texans to 6-6, which is the same record as the Titans and the Colts can join them with a win over the Jets on Monday night. The Texans are in Indianapolis next Sunday and close out the year in Tennessee, so it would be a fine time for Osweiler and company to turn that corner once and for all.

    We’re close to exploding on offense…that John Elway fellow sure is smart..

    Osweiler wouldn’t be worth the 68 million Elway offered him either.

    If he had taken the deal – you all would be calling Elway an idiot for giving him 68 million vs the Texans at 72 million.

    Brock’s greed is what made Elway look good – NOT Elway walking away from Brock.

    If you can’t beat the traditioanaly horrible Packers defense just quit already.

    And if you’re 2 games behind in your division after 12 games when you started the season 5-0, just quit already.

  3. Truth of the matter is that the Packer’s defense is not that good so if Brock had one of his better days, it’s impossible to tell if he has improved or it was just a typical day for the Packer’s defense. The Packers have a way of making even bad offenses look good.

    Either way, that division is so bad that if he has improved, the future is right in front of him and talking about it will not do him any good, he needs to show it now or shut up.

    AND YET WITH THE TIEBREAKER, GB STILL TRAILS THE VIKINGS

  5. They’ve already played 12 regular season games and he’s basically saying they haven’t found their chemistry

    He means imploding, right??

    ———————————

    Nah, they’ve already long done that, mostly because of Ostweiler.

  7. Coming soon to Divorce Court: The QB so greedy he left a Super Bowl team for a couple extra bucks and didn’t even feel the need to meet with the new team before signing, and the team so desperate to find a franchise QB they didn’t want to waste time talking to him beforehand.

  8. If you’re a starting quarterback and CAN’T have one of your best games of the year against Green Bay’s 5th string secondary then I do not know what to tell you.

    And they still haven’t awarded the division championship with 4 games to play just like they didn’t award the SuperBowl trophy after a 5-0 start.

    Don’t worry, the Vikes already have quit, and “fans” like Ariani have already jumped off the bandwagon.

  11. Quietly, after a brief telephonic meet and greet, McNair is offering the Pats five number ones for Jimmy G. Said McNair, “we go a little tape on him. He’s perfect for us.” Brock Oz meanwhile is rumored to be traded to Cleveland for a sixer of Lake Erie brewed slog.

    Maybe you have a point, maybe you don’t. Bronco’s offered a 3 yr deal 49.5 million with 30 million guaranteed…Texans offered 72 million 4 yrs, with 37 million guaranteed. Elways refused to offer more to match or go beyond what the Texans offered, also refused to offer 18 million (going rate for 2nd tier qb’s) to either Fitzpatrick or Bradford. Stand by my remark: that John Elway fellow sure is smart…

  13. Osweiler isn’t worth more than 2 million a year. Offering anything more than that – is not a sign of intelligence.

    Difference between the 2 deals is about that 2 million a year.

    Elway’s offer was still more than Osweiler is worth. Just because Osweiler didn’t take it doesn’t make Elway a genius. 16.5 million a year isn’t a whole lot smarter than 18 million a year for this guy.

    It just isn’t because he’s not worth the 16.5 either.

  14. Anyone with half a brain can tell Elway dodged a bullet. Lucky Rick Smith was dumber, rather than smart.
