Is Brock Osweiler being a petulant child towards the Denver Broncos?

With Brock Osweiler first skipping the Denver Broncos visit to the White House as Super Bowl champions due to his desire not to miss any practice and now skipping the Broncos Super Bowl ring ceremony despite the Houston Texans having no team activities scheduled that day, it is clear that Osweiler has a grudge against the Broncos organization.

But is he being a petulant child?

Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of The Afternoon Drive think so and discussed Osweiler's behavior on Friday.

Personally, I think Osweiler is letting his feelings about his Week 17 benching cloud his judgement. He is skipping out on events that few NFL players ever get to experience. Like ever. That is how rare it is to be a Super Bowl champion in the NFL and Osweiler was a big part of that.

The one part of The Afternoon Drive's segment that I absolutely agreed with was that the Broncos defense must now soul crush Osweiler for his offseason antics.

Before any Osweiler apologists chime in, this is not a hate post. I like Osweiler and I liked what he did for the Broncos in 2015, but I absolutely do not like his behavior since leaving. He clearly has a grudge, so why should I continuing playing nice towards a guy who hates my favorite team?

Like Goodman, I liked him before and now I do not.

Joel Dreessen disagrees and thinks we all should cut Osweiler some slack and thinks those of us who are unhappy with Osweiler's actions are being too harsh.

Frankly, I disagree. Osweiler is acting like a petulant child this offseason. This Broncos fan can't wait for Week 7 on Monday Night Football when Broncos Country is able to give Osweiler a proper welcome home.
