Brandon Spano argues that the reason why Brock Osweiler left Denver was to leave Peyton Manning’s shadow. On top of that, he was “furious” about being benched in Week 17. If this is even remotely true, why would be upset about being benched when you were on the Superbowl winning team. If Brock was more upset about being benched then happy about winning the biggest game of the year, this says a lot about him as a guy. A Me-Guy. At the end of the day, Brock validation to be mad was wiped clean right after the Superbowl win.

What I will give props for however is that he did a relatively good job of keeping it to himself the whole time it was happening, from all accounts. That was a team-first move, in my eyes.
