Looking for a shakeup at quarterback, the Denver Broncos turned to Brock Osweiler in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The early returns were not good.
Trailing 10-3, Osweiler dropped back and hit Patrick Robinson right between the numbers. The problem? Robinson and Osweiler do not play for the same team.
The interception set up a Philadelphia touchdown. It had been a while since Twitter got to make fun of Osweiler, but it picked up right where it left off.
46+ minutes left in Philly and The Heist has a pick and a dropped pick – how did you talk me out of Eagles -7 @mlombardiNFL ???

It’s so bad. But early. He has more left in him https://t.co/poHlQqvniL

Shocking development: Osweiler is terrible and the Eagles defense is taking advantage. Never saw that coming.

Brock Osweiler proving he’s the player he was in Houston and Cleveland. Philly drops a pick on first drive and gets one there. #paxton

Of course, not everyone was slamming Osweiler. Some were there to remind others of Osweiler’s greatest NFL moment.
All you Pats fans talking down on Glock Osweiler need to put some respeck on his name.
Glock Osweiler vs. Brady = 1-0

Meanwhile, others were there to point out that as bad as he’s been, he’s not costing the Broncos much. The same can’t be said for the Cleveland Browns, who are bungling quarterback situations in games where they’re not even playing.
It may not be costing Denver much in the checkbook. But passes like that certainly aren’t helping the Broncos on the field.
