Osweiler fitting right in during OTA workouts

He's the new gunslinger in town and the happiest guy on the OTA practice field this week has been Quarterback Brock Osweiler. The big 6-8 frame you can miss and the same can be said of his rocket arm. He hasn't been in Houston long but you can tell he is like a kid in a candy store

"It was fantastic, this is what football is all about. It's about putting on the helmets, calling a play in the huddle, breaking the huddle and actually going out there and running it against an opponent."

"Today was a lot of fun, finally get out there and get the bullets flying a little bit. Like I said, speaking the language, calling plays, running through cadences, making MIKE (linebacker) points, it was just a lot of fun getting back to work and really going against a defense today," said Osweiler.

While it is still very early in the process, Osweiler has already made strides establishing relationships on and off the field with his receivers and by living daily in the deep and complicated offense he has to learn fully by the time he takes his first snap as the Texans Starter in September.

"It's growing every single day and every single day matters, every rep matters, every rep is important," said Osweiler.

Just like I said prior, there's going to be some good plays and then I don't necessarily call them bad plays, I call them learning experiences and those are going to be incompletions, interceptions, were we on the same page, were we not on the same page and then that's why you - there's a couple pieces to the puzzle," Osweiler added.

"It's installing in the morning and then it's going out there and walking through it on the field then actually repping it full speed and for a lot of guys, it's our first time maybe repping that play."

"So you're not really sure what's going to happen, then you go into the film room a couple minutes from now and we watch it as a unit and we try to get on the same page and we keep repping that. That's really the phase that we're in right now. We're learning in the classroom, we're repping it one or two times and then we're trying to learn from it and get on the same page."

His top target will be DeAndre Hopkins and although it's early, Hop is already impressed.

"He operates like a pros' pro. He comes out and he demands the best out of everybody, offensive line, fullbacks, even the guys that aren't even in the huddle. He's a natural leader," said Hopkins after practice.

When we last saw a quarterback on the field in a Texans uniform it was a nightmare performance by Brian Hoyer in the embarrassing 30-0 playoff loss to the Chiefs. Goodbye Hoyer and who was that Ryan Mallett guy anyway?

OTA's have arrived and when they began on Monday Head Coach Bill O'Brien was not in a good mood and he was clear was would and would not be allowed when it comes to describing any action on the practice field. The team showed us they can stretch really well, Osweiler handed off to running backs and threw passes to his receivers. There were other drills and Coaches barking out instructions .

So Coach how was day 1 and what do you think about these Organized Team activities?

"Good work. Good start," said O'Brien

Also Coach any updates on those not practicing today and what did you see out of Osweiler?

"No, no updates on injuries. No updates on anything. We're off to a good start," O'Brien added.

Any thoughts on what you saw out of Osweiler?

"He got off to a good start today, just like everybody else did."

From now until Training Camp and Opening day all eyes will be on Osweiler and O'Brien is well aware of that. Eventually we'll get more of Coach O-B to open up but for now it's all business and the players are following his every move.

"Well I would say the Houston Texans fans are very excited about the 2016 football season and just like the coaches and players are as well," said Osweiler.

"We're all excited to get this thing started and just being around town and mingling with some fans and people like that, it's been fantastic. You can really feel the vibe out there, but bottom line there's a lot of work to do before the season starts and it's just exciting to get underway with day one today."
