Turn up the volume as loud as you possibly can (perhaps even to 11?) because the Brock Lobster is about to get loose in Philadelphia. That’s right, baby — Brock Osweiler is back as the Broncos starting quarterback.
Coach Vance Joseph, after about 48 hours of tape study from Trevor Siemian’s disastrous start against the Chiefs on Monday night, decided to turn to Osweiler as the starting quarterback for Week 9 in Philadelphia.
This is something. It is a thing that exists. How else can you analyze it? Because the Broncos, who have stumbled to 3-4 despite sporting one of the best defenses in the NFL, are turning to Brock Osweiler as their starting quarterback against one of the most dangerous defenses in the NFL.
The Eagles aren’t stout in the back end of their defense, but they are filthy on the defensive line. Fletcher Cox, Timmy Jernigan, Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry and Derek Barnett have been getting after more mobile and dangerous quarterbacks at various points in the season.
