Former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak isn’t worried about Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler after a year in Houston.
Kubiak spoke with reporters this past week leading up to Super Bowl LI.
“I think Brock’s going to be fine,” Kubiak said, via the Houston Chronicle. “You’ve got to remember he’s a very young player. He played very well for us and got our team in position to win a championship.
“He’s got 1 ½ years as a starter. His team went to the playoffs. There are a lot of things to grow from. He’s being coached extremely well.”

Kubiak says it’s only normal for Osweiler to go through some rough times.
“Any quarterback in this league who’s going to be successful goes through some hard times,” Kubiak said. “Everybody wants a little more. I think Brock will be the first to tell you he wants more, too. He’ll work at it.
“I think the world of Brock. The thing about Brock is that he’s positive, and he’s a competitor. If you’re going to be successful and last in this league, that’s what you have to be. He’s got those traits.”
The Texans are certainly hoping that a light comes on for Osweiler next season with all of the money they currently have invested in him.
It was extremely alarming how inaccurate and out of whack Osweiler’s mechanics were this past season. It’s going to take an incredible offseason for him to turn things around.
