The Houston Texans are beginning to completely rethink their struggling quarterback situation.
After signing Brock Osweiler to a $72 million dollar deal in the offseason, the Texans were forced to bench him on Sunday in order to beat the 2-12 Jacksonville Jaguars. Tom Savage came on in relief of Osweiler, who had thrown two first quarter interceptions, and led the Texans to a 21-20 win.
On the season, Osweiler has been horrible. He has thrown just 14 touchdowns with 14 interceptions, and his 5.79 yards per pass ranks him dead last among all quarterbacks in the league.
But after Sunday’s game, the Texans are looking at some alternative options concerning their much maligned quarterback.
On Monday, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien stated that the coaching staff may have found the problem that is plaguing their struggling signal caller.
“We have been pouring over film, and we are starting to think that Brock might be throwing with the wrong hand.” O’Brien stated. “There is just no way someone could be that inaccurate, and be throwing with his true dominant hand.”
Osweiler isn’t so sure. “I’ve been throwing with my right hand since I was a toddler. I write with my right hand, I signed my giant contract with it. I have always been right handed.”
Yet, O’Brien remains insistent. “We are just watching play after play of Brock throwing the ball, and he literally can’t hit an open receiver to save his life. There has to be more to this. There is no way that a true NFL quarterback could be this bad.”
