Here, throw this at the wall.
See if it sticks.
In a football twist no one could have predicted when he was booed at Mile High as a member of the Houston Texans — but is the obvious choice after Monday night's meltdown — Osweiler will start for the Broncos at quarterback at Philadelphia on Sunday. Vance Joseph informed the team of the switch from Trevor Siemian on Wednesday morning, according to Mike Klis of 9News.
How'd we get here?
How much time do you have?
Here's a loose timeline:
2012: Broncos draft Osweiler with the 57th overall pick
2015: Osweiler starts for Broncos in place of Peyton Manning and helps Denver to Super Bowl 50 with a 5-2 record in seven starts
2016: Osweiler spurns the Broncos to sign a $72 million deal with the Texans and skips Denver's visit to the White House
August 2017: Osweiler completes 12-of-22 passes for 67 yards, no touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 41.3 during the Browns' preseason
November 2017: Osweiler starts for Broncos in place of Siemian
It's the right move for the Broncos. It's the only move for the Broncos.
Mostly, it's proof Denver's real quarterback of the future isn't in the building.
