After skipping out on the Broncos trip to the White House earlier this week, a new report says Osweiler has chosen also not to attend Denver's Super Bowl ring ceremony this coming Sunday.
Osweiler's excuse for skipping the White House was Texans OTAs. However, this time around, there's no plausible out. The Texans are off this coming Sunday.
The former Broncos second round pick is behaving like a spurned lover. There's no doubt Osweiler is still chewing on sour grapes, after head coach Gary Kubiak chose to bench him in Week 17 vs. San Diego.
http://www.scout.com/nfl/broncos/story/1676277-president-obama-gives-the... I don't have a dog in this fight, but I have to point out how disingenuous Osweiler is. When late last season Peyton Manning was lost for almost two months with a plantar fascia tear, Osweiler publicly—and humbly— supported the five-time MVP, saying that this was "Peyton's team" on more than one occasion.
He consistently portrayed himself as the guy just doing his job, keeping the seat warm for Manning while he healed up. Now we know the truth. In seven quick games, Osweiler's slightly above-average play catapulted him—in his own mind—above an 18-year veteran who owned just about every passing record in the book.
The Broncos made the right choice. Although they managed to win the Super Bowl with less than stellar QB play, Manning did his job. He provided the veterans with confidence and made just the right amount of plays in crunch time—when they mattered most. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
The sad irony is that Osweiler deserves the ring. And he deserves some credit. The Broncos wouldn't have made the playoffs, or had the opportunity to win the Super Bowl, had Osweiler not done his job, going 5-2 as a starter.
See ya in Week 7, Brock.
