Cleveland Browns quarterback Brock Osweiler seems to be confident in his abilities, which is his only choice now that he is seeking another starting job.
It would be hard to find a lot of Cleveland Browns fans who were excited when finding out the team acquired Brock Osweiler back in March. In fact, it would be hard to imagine the man himself reacting with anything more than a shrug.
Alas, Osweiler is on the Browns and opens practice as a backup behind Cody Kessler. There is an open competition in place, but Osweiler needs to prove he is better than the reputation he built in his first season as a full-time starter last year in Houston.
Browns fans likely see his 15 touchdowns compared to 16 interceptions, along with his three interceptions against the New England Patriots in the postseason, as a sign that he is not someone the team can build around. But don’t tell that to Osweiler.

The video shared above was taken at OTAs, by Doug Lesmerises, and sees Osweiler confidently declaring we can all look at his game film to see why he is capable of being an NFL starter.
It spawned a lot of jokes about his play from last season, but what do you want him to say?
An individual can’t be in the NFL if they lack confidence, especially at the quarterback position. And the statement made by Osweiler didn’t seem to be defensive, but rather a confident statement that wasn’t meant to blow up in the media.
Perhaps Osweiler was referring to his eight starts in 2015, when he threw ten touchdowns compared to just six interceptions to help the Denver Broncos’ march toward the playoffs that ultimately resulted in a Super Bowl victory.
Regardless, no one should be overreacting to his statement about looking at the film. He has been a starting quarterback and wants another chance to prove himself. It is much better than him moping about being on the Browns and creating a distraction.
