The Cleveland Browns are desperately in need of a starting quarterback, so it wasn’t a surprise when Brock Osweiler was asked in a recent interview if he is good enough to be that guy. What was shocking was Osweiler’s response. Osweiler told the Cleveland reporters that he should be the Browns starting quarterback based off his past 2 years as a QB in the NFL. He basically told the reporters to go check the tapes and decide for themselves if he is good enough to start or not. Bold move by Osweiler here considering his last two seasons for the Houston Texans he played so poorly that he was eventually benched and run out of town.
Let’s see what Twitter was saying about Osweiler’s response to the Cleveland media.
Brock Osweiler says the proof is in the film why he’s a starting QB.

Can’t really knock Osweiler’s confidence here. Considering the circumstances, he can’t actually be any worse than what the Browns have already had at quarterback. Just check out this list and you tell me if Osweiler should have responded like he did or not.
