How to judge if Brock Osweiler is successful in the preseason opener?

Osweiler will not only be attempting to further tighten his grip on the starter’s role for the season-opening game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he will continue his quest to prove that he is just not a taller version of Trent Dilfer, Jeff Garcia, Jason Campbell, Jake Delhomme and the rest of the quarterbacks that have called Cleveland home since 1999.

It is easy to over-react to preseason results – just think back to a year ago when fans were having feverish dreams of Robert Griffin III teaming up with Josh Gordon and Terrelle Pryor to form a brown-and-orange juggernaut.

Looking at the past four preseason openers, the results show that, with one glaring exception, the presumptive starter has fared pretty well:

Stats are nice, and putting a touchdown or two on the board would be good, which is basically how Osweiler will judge if his time on the field is a success, according to :

If we can get first downs and get positive plays and score points, I think it’d be a good start to our season.” That may sound a bit pedestrian, but it is not a bad way to go into the game.
