The Raiders warned Las Vegas that not having a stadium lease agreement in hand for next week’s NFL meetings could delay the team’s arrival in Nevada.
The Las Vegas Stadium Authority did its part Thursday, unanimously approving a conditional lease agreement for the Raiders, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
That result was met with a roar of approval by Laborers International Cheap Ice Hockey Jerseys Union Local 872 hard-hats who had gathered at the Clark Clark County Government Center.
Look, Osweiler should have confidence in himself and believe he’s a starting quarterback. You want your players to have that mentality. But he really can’t say “the proof is in the film” when the proof is most certainly not in the film. The only proof in the film is proof that he was overpaid by the Texans and shouldn’t have been given so much money with little experience as a starter.
In 15 games Osweiler ended with more interceptions (16) than touchdowns (15) and ranked 29th out of 30 eligible passers for QB rating (72.2). His completion percentage (59.0) ranked 27th out of 30 eligible passers and his yards per attempt (5.80) ranked dead last of those 30. This is a long way of saying he was very, very bad in 2016.
He was so bad that the Texans gave up a draft pick just so they didn’t have to pay him so much money. When the Browns made the trade that invovled him, they were more excited about the pick.
Easing up a bit, Osweiler was put in a tough spot. He’s not going to openly admit he was terrible, but his response deserved to be laughed at, and it was.
