In the article by CBS sports Brock gives 2 reasons why he left:

1. More success as a quarterback in Houston, and more importantly not because he's afraid of playing under Manning's shadow

2. More wins in Houston over a longer period of time than in Denver

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/osweiler-reveals-two-reasons-why-he-spurned-the-broncos-for-houston/

Now it's completely up to y'all to decide if he's telling the truth, but honestly I don't believe a word of it. Not after winning the superbowl do you leave that team for the team that got shut out at wildcard and say you did for "future success." Lemme know what you guys think. Either way I hope he has some success. Just not week 7 this coming season.

Here's my 5 reasons why he left:

1. His feelings were hurt after he got benched.

2. 4 year - $72 million (NO STATE TAX) contract

3. $12 million (NO STATE TAX) signing bonus

4. $37 million (NO STATE TAX) guaranteed

5. An average annual (NO STATE TAX) salary of $18 million.

At first I thought he would just be an average to below average QB in Houston since at first it seemed as though they were counting on leaning on him to be the savior but now that they've provided him with a lot of damn good offensive weapons he doesn't have to try and carry the load so I think he will be a good to a damn good QB in HOU with all his new toys to lean on instead.

Lol...good luck with that one Brock...We're the winningest franchise in the last 30 years since Bowlen took over and a good chunk of that winning history was sans Manning...We were winning before Manning got here, we'll keep winning after. You gave up a golden opportunity to go pout in Houston. Good riddance kid...

It was all about the money for Brock. I also don't think he could handle the pressure in Denver very well this season, with us coming off a superbowl win. He went somewhere where the fans will think he's a great qb because theyve had terrible qb play there for a few seasons.

I can't blame the guy, they always say
"Football is a Business" and he did his Part on the Business side, and scored BIG!.

He had a great opportunity to win here, but he "broke the bank" in Texas.

Houston way overpaid him. Hope he plays on Cam Newton/Tom brady level the way the Texans are hyping him up. But yeah. 0 doubt in my mind he left denver for 72 million reasons and that week 17 last season

His 2 reasons are ridiculous...how can he seriously expect anyone to believe that the Texans as a franchise give him the opportunity for more wins and success than the Broncos (especially as others have mentioned the Bowlen era has seen the greatest success of any nfl team). He went for the cash plain and simple and should just admit it ;)

Not only that, but the 3rd most successful in ALL of american sports during that span of his ownership.

Why is he still talking about it? Why is he always saying he wasn't afraid to play under Mannings shadow? Quite frankly he knew his expectations here would be to repeat and honestly he doesn't believe he could have done it. Him leaving just screams of insecurity.

I did not know that.

If I'm not mistaken, Mile High Stadium has been sold out since 1970 which was three years before the first winning season in 1973.

Since 1973 (42 years), the Denver Broncos have had seven losing seasons, none consecutive.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the Denver Broncos are one of the best NFL franchises in a number of categories.

Here is the quote:


"I have tremendous respect for both John Elway and Peyton Manning as people and as quarterbacks in the NFL, but I was not concerned one bit with playing in their shadow," Osweiler said. "That didn't weigh into my decision whatsoever. Bottom line, I made my decision off where I felt like I could have the most success playing quarterback in the NFL and where I could go and win long-term."



The Broncos organization didn't believe that he had proven himself yet, and they were not going to commit to him as the franchise QB at this point in time. The Texans organization did. No drama, no BS, that's really all he's saying.

This is just typical Brock Talk that he slyly learned from Fox. The art of saying words just to fill space.

He's pretty good at it.

By "committing" you mean getting overpaid? Then yeah the Texans are "commited" to him. Brock never wanted to stay in Denver, I think we all know that by now.

Yes. Paying the guy that much money is committing to him being your franchise QB. The Texans did that for at least two years.

Meh. The NFL is a QB starved business and Brock looks like a “serviceable” quarterback. Houston backs up a dump truck full of gold bars and says, “whaddya say, son?” If I was in Brock’s shoes I would’ve done the same. Now, he can be mediocre in Texas and they can be proud of his mediocre legacy, AND he won the QB sweepstakes to boot. That’s win win for Brock…and probably a big win for Denver in freeing up cap and drafting Lynch. Seriously, I think everyone wins here…well, maybe not the Texans. :eek: :laugh:

I was irritated when he first signed with Houston, but I'm over it. I think there is more to it, than he thinks he'll have a better chance at a good career in Houston. Houston is where QB's go to die.... or at least for where their career's to die. But good luck to him there ... I think we did great with Osweiler, partially because when we put him in, there hadn't really been a lot of tape for other coaches to study to figure him out. I honestly felt, like they were starting to figure him out by the end of his time, when he was benched and we went back to Peyton. I don't think he is so spectacular, that he's gonna have great success in Houston that he wouldn't have had here.

Maybe he'll prove his all wrong, and have great success, but I say he'll be playing second string again within a year.

Monday October 24th, 2016 at Mile High Stadium. The Broncos will have had eleven days of rest and preparation to eight for the Texans. Brock Osweiler gets to go up against his former teammates on MNF. :logo:

P.S. Denver's D knows Brock well. He ran scout team O against them for almost four years. :D

He got the SB ring.
He got the cash.
Now..
he wants the big yardage stats..
and pro bowl berths.
-
He thinks that Kubiak's offense will be pedestrian...
and that in Houston he can air the ball out a lot.
-
He is not thinking about team.... Or winning games...
he is thinking about personal glory.
-
I bet the Broncos win another Super Bowl with Paxton,
before Texans even win the AFC Championship with Brock.

Or he could be thinking about money. Or his future.

especially considering teams treat it like a business so why shouldn't players? teams have no issues cutting players to save money, so it works both ways.

it does suck when you don't have as many players playing their entire career with the same team anymore, fans suffer the most in that regard.

I Brock came out and said Houston believed in me and paid me what I think I'm worth or was even more honest and just said I wanted to be paid like a starting Qb, I would have no problem with his decision. My problem with him is the whole Houston gives me the best chance to win. The Houston Texans? A team that has never accomplished anything? Is a better situation than playing in the same offense I did the year before with players I have practiced and played with for four years? Sorry I think its cop out. Kubiak has been apart of 4 Superbowl winning teams - the 94 SF 49ers where he served as Steve Young Qb coach/ 97 & 98 with John Elway as his OC/ and this last year with Peyton as a head coach.
Bill Obrien was Brady's OC when they lost the Superbowl in 2011 to the Giants.
What coach would you choose?
Deandre Hopkins is a great receiver, so are DT and Emmanuel Sanders, who would you rather throw to? 1 great receiver or 2?
Houston has a solid defense, Denver has a Superbowl winning Defense, who would you want?

Sorry Brock you wanted to get paid, and there is nothing wrong with that but you look stupid when you try to spin it and say you wanted the best situation to win.

WILL MISS YOU BRENT!

BTW Brent: You could only put up 12 points vs the Raiders at home while your defense only allowed 15 pts, what is Houston gonna do? Only allow 9 pts .

Paxton's footwork, arm motion, quickness of delivering the ball and arm talent are already above Brock in his fifth year. Totally agree. Plus he doesn't look like a giraffe on ice on play fakes.

Yea, that's the joke RichardR.

His name is RobertR, not RichardR.

Anyways, Houston loaded up on offensive talent, it's hard to imagine that even a bottom tier NFL qb would struggle offensively with all the weapons they now have on offense. So I don't anticipate Osweiler to have a bad season. But at the same time, I DO think Houston way overspent on him, because they could have plugged any serviceable qb in and had offensive success. So they should have just paid a serviceable qb's going rate, rather than way overpaying for Brock.

I think them throwing around way more money than necessary for certain players will bite them in the butt and prevent them from having playoff success in the coming years due to salary cap issues

If I'm not mistaken, Mile High Stadium has been sold out since 1970 which was three years before the first winning season in 1973.

Since 1973 (42 years), the Denver Broncos have had seven losing seasons, none consecutive.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the Denver Broncos are one of the best NFL franchises in a number of categories.
