Brock Osweiler will start his 4th straight game Sunday.
He had an excellent game against the Bears, especially considering that he foud out he was playing about an hour before game time. In the games against Detroit and Houston, he was so-so, but not horrible. The defense clearly cost us those games and came close to costing us the Bears’ game as well (Thank you, Cody Parkey!).
Today, Brock showed why i really like this guy. He said he wants to keep the starting job, even when Ryan Tannehill returns to health. Now that is a gamer. He’s not spouting the usual cliches about “I just want to help my team win any way the coaches use me.” He is honest. He is a competitor.
Of course, Adam Gase has already stated that Tannehill will resume the starting role no matter what. That same attitude has doomed many a coach, and Gase obviously has not learned from history. The offense has been playing well under Brock for a month. At the very least, Gase should say, “We’ll see” instead of already sealing Brock’s fate way in advance. But Adam Gase has never been one to listen to common sense.
