Texans get win over 49ers

Osweiler gets limited snaps

The entirety of the Texans nation wanted to see Brock Osweiler this past weekend but with the majority of the Texans’ offensive line missing, Coach Bill O’Brien wisely pulled him after three series’.  Osweiler went 4-7 for 27 yards in the 24-13 victory.  Osweiler is still learning the playbook in place and pulling him early was a smart move as was running the ball, which they did effectively.

“Like he (Osweiler) said after the game, we kept it pretty close to the vest,” O’Brien said. “We ran the ball quite a bit. We threw some quick game. He had one fade ball to DeAndre that was close. The DB made a really good play on it.texans 4

“We came out with a fairly basic scheme, but you know what?” Osweiler said. “No matter what the scheme is, it is our job as players to go out there and execute that scheme and make plays. I’m not going to get into what we did call, what we didn’t call. Bottom line is coach puts in a game plan and it is our job as players to execute that to the best of our abilities.”

Texans hyped on Osweiler

QB has only had seven career starts

Brock Osweiler left the Denver Broncos franchise in a tiff after being benched and replaced by Peyton Manning after the latter returned from a foot injury.  The move left a very sour taste in the young quarterbacks mouth and his mouth made sure everyone who could hear it heard.  Then a lowball offer by the Broncos and a great offer (4-year $72 million) by the Texans sealed the deal for the former Arizona State alum who was soon on his way to Texas.

“Brock looks good so far,” Texans linebacker Brian Cushing said after last Tuesday’s session as a smile crossed his face. “When you say his name I get excited. texans 3He’s made some incredible throws.  It seems like every practice he’s getting better, which is frustrating right now because it’s coming against us. But once the season comes along it’s going to be awesome to see what he brings to this team.”
