Not going to lie, this might not be the worst idea in the world. I know, I know. That's not how this works, that's not how any of this works. Professional organizations don't depend on anonymous donations via the internet to bail them out of comically bad financial commitments. Still, I think if I were a Texans fan I would throw at least $5 or $10 at this GoFundMe just so that the fraudulent sense of potentially contributing to the exile of Brock Osweiler could help me sleep better at night.
Seriously, has a signing that everyone knew was bad when it happened ever proved itself to be even worse than that this quickly? Brock Osweiler is HORRIBLE. Like, quite possibly worst quarterback in the league horrible. Like, ruining DeAndre Hopkins entire career snap-by-snap horrible. Do you understand how impossible that seems? DeAndre Hopkins flourished with Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, TJ Yates, and Brandon Weeden throwing him the ball last year. That's like the 'Who's Who?' of underwhelming journeyman backups, and the current Texans QB has made them look Canton-bound by comparison. On Monday night Brock Osweiler looked like a poor man's Trevor Siemian, which would be fine if he wasn't the one that's worth SEVENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS.
I feel like I owe John Elway an apology. There was a time during the playoffs where I thought the Broncos were just starting a corpse at quarterback because of that corpse's name, but it turns out a half dead Peyton Manning really was their best option. There's a lot of players that get used as an example when talking about how badly mediocre quarterbacks get overpaid, but Brock Osweiler as a running joke/warning sign might stand the test of time. Honestly, when the poor bastard is out of the league in two years are you really going to forget a name like Brock Osweiler? I know the Texans fans that would gladly be a little lighter in the wallet if it meant getting rid of him won't.
