Brock Osweiler is entering his first season as a member of the Houston Texans. After spending 4 years with the Denver Broncos, Osweiler is now facing the challenge of learning a new offense. Luckily for Osweiler he has a special someone to help him learn the new Bill O’Brien offense.
“My wife will act as the offensive coordinator at times during the evening,” Osweiler told ESPN. “I’ll have her read the full play to me. I’ll sit there and try to picture it, spit it back out to her, make sure I’m verbalizing it the right way so that when I step into the huddle the next day in practice, things are coming out clear.”
The challenges of learning a new playbook is something that often times gets over looked. Most of the time the playbook is often times shortened until the player can fully understand the playbook which takes far more time than people realize. Nevertheless Osweiler is excited and feels like the new kid at school.
“That’s the playbook, that’s getting to know your teammates. Understanding the ins and the outs and the operation and style of this building and how our strength staff operates,” he said. “It’s like the first day of school and going to a new school. Who’s going to be my new best friend? What’s our teacher like? I can’t wait to see the playground, maybe our weight room and cafeteria.”
