Can Brock Osweiler lead the Broncos to Victory?
Vance Joseph has decided to hand the reigns over to Brock Osweiler starting on Sunday against Philadelphia. Can he help the Broncos get out of their slump?
After Trevor Siemain’s performance on Monday against Kansas City, it was only a matter of time when the keys to the Ferrari were taken away and given to the veteran.
Brock Osweiler has been named the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos game against the Philadelphia Eagles. It is the final game of the team’s three game road trip. This decision was best for the team. Trevor Siemian has struggled mightily since the Week Two win over the Dallas Cowboys.
The Broncos needed a spark. They are still within reach of the AFC West Division. And with how the AFC has been playing, a playoff birth is still possible. But the big question arises. Can Brock Osweiler lead the Broncos to victory?
The fact that he knows a bit about the Broncos and Mike McCoy’s offense could make this an easy transition. During the 2015 campaign, he led the Broncos to a 5-2 record while Peyton Manning rested his injured foot.
During those seven games, Osweiler threw for nearly 2,000 yards, ten touchdowns and six interceptions. Some of his numbers were not flashy. However, he did get some key wins against the Patriots and Bengals during that time.
If Brock Osweiler can limit the turnovers, I believe he can be a solid option for this team. If he can lead the team to a win against the Eagles and Patriots, there is still a good chance Denver makes the playoffs.

It all starts with ball security, trusting your running backs, and converting on third down. As long as Brock Osweiler can do that, then he has a good chance at leading this team to some wins. His attitude seems to be mature enough to lead this team too.
We will see how he performs this weekend against Philadelphia.
