Yesterday, November 1, as expected, your Denver Broncos pulled downward-spiraling quarterback Trevor Siemian from the starting lineup in favor of Brock Osweiler, who was F-bombed on social media after leaving the team in 2016 and heavily ridiculed upon his return earlier this year following big-time failures in Houston and Cleveland.
The reaction on Twitter by fans can't be characterized as wildly enthusiastic. Plenty of folks see both players as pathetic.
So much so that there were more calls for team exec John Elway to sign the controversial Colin Kaepernick — or bring back Tim Tebow.
In the meantime, Osweiler has earned the honor of, in all likelihood, getting his ass kicked this upcoming weekend by the Philadelphia Eagles, currently one of the best squads in the NFL. Lucky him.
