Osweiler Pickup Effecting The Books in Vegas

Just a couple weeks ago, the Texans QB situation seemed to be a long wait until the draft to see who would be the starter for the 2016 season. But Rick Smith and the gang spent little time addressing the biggest problem that has been the Achilles heel of this team. Brock Osweiler will be the new face of this young offense that has been itching for a QB for years. Pairing him along with new pick up Lamar Miller and All-Pro WR DeAndre Hopkins, gives the Texans a chance to have one of the most exciting offenses in football. Now I’m not sold on how good Osweiler is and quite frankly, I’m not sure I would have spent all that money on him. But it was the best pickup the Texans could have made at the moment to get this team closer to a Super Bowl.

And the boys in Vegas seem to agree. Before Osweiler, the Texans were +5000 to win it all. Those are the same odds as the Bears, Jets, Rams, Bucs, Lions, Redskins and a couple other shitty teams. After the Osweiler signing, the Texans jumped to +2000, giving them the 9th best odds in the league. Is Vegas overreacting? Yeah, maybe a little. However, after 2 years of going into a season knowing your QB is just a band-aid, it feels good to have a little stability. Who knows, Brock might be a complete bust. But atleast its better going into the season with him instead of a Fitz or Hoyer. I mean he cant start it off any worse then Hoyer, whos first throw of the season was a interception. So that is one positive we have for the upcoming year.

Balls in your court, Brock.
