In late November, Russell Wilson celebrated his 34th birthday.
A quarterback shouldn’t be fully losing his edge at this age. Russell Wilson was acquired by the Broncos in exchange for a number of players and draught picks, and they also granted him a five-year agreement for more than $240 million.
The deal could go down as one of the worst in NFL history, along with the trade. Russell Wilson’s name may be permanently associated with bad luck in Colorado as a result of the franchise’s many years’ worth of setbacks.
The Denver Broncos’ 51-14 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday was a low point in a season that has been terrible since Week 1. On the first two Broncos possessions, Russell Wilson threw interceptions, both of which were entirely on the quarterback. He horribly overthrew a pass on one and tossed it right to linebacker Bobby Wagner over the middle on the other.
Soon after the second interception, the score was 17-0.
Rewatch the Broncos’ performance on Christmas afternoon to see what it looks like when a team has entirely given up on the season and wants it to be done. The JV offence of the Rams destroyed a previously strong defence. At the half, the Rams led with 31 points. Once this season, they scored 31 points in an entire game. In Baker Mayfield’s first two games for the Rams combined, they scored 39 points. Additionally, Denver’s offence is incapable of scoring, so it was basically drawing dead from the beginning of the game. Before the offence scored its first touchdown, the Broncos were down 41-6.
Nathaniel Hackett of Denver has had one of the worst debut seasons of any head coach in NFL history, and the Broncos fan base would be furious if he returned for a second campaign. However, letting go of Hackett might not be enough to address the obvious Russell Wilson issue.
Russell Wilson Needs To Reset.
In terms of points scored, the Broncos are bottom in the NFL. Nobody anticipated it, but the game on Sunday featured the season’s worst offensive effort.
Russell Wilson appeared to be be dealing with the consequences of his concussion despite having recovered. Early in the game, his two interceptions had a big impact on the Broncos’ hopes.
The offensive line for Russell Wilson leaks like a sieve. He frequently did not have the chance to adequately survey the field. The Broncos’ pass-game issues are made worse by his failure to recognise wide-open receivers and tendency to hold onto the ball for too long.
Russell Wilson was taken out of the game in the fourth quarter after throwing for 214 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett excused Russell Wilson for his performance. Russell Wilson’s terrible performance does present a chance, though.
Now that they have more power, the Broncos can manage their dubious $245 million investment. Russell Wilson’s support group, including his personal quarterback coach, should be informed by GM George Paton that they are allowed to work with him during the offseason but that he must uphold the same standards as the rest of the team during the season.
Russell Wilson’s office at Broncos HQ needs to be returned by Paton as well. Clearly, a member of the Broncos’ scouting staff could make better use of the area.
The most obvious and sentimental reaction to a truly horrible loss is to trade Russell Wilson, but this is not realistic. The fact that Russell Wilson’s contract makes trading or releasing him impossible for at least the next two years must be accepted by Broncos Country.
Russell Wilson Is Still Having Trouble.
Russell Wilson’s poor performance early on in the match even caused Patrick Star to laugh about it on the Nickelodeon broadcast.

According to Tracy Wolfson of CBS, at one point in the third quarter, backup quarterback Brett Rypien got into a heated exchange with the offensive line on the sidelines. As if the Broncos needed another problem to add to their list of problems—”total disarray on the sideline.”
This season, Russell Wilson has been among the worst NFL quarterbacks. Russell Wilson has performed the poorest if you evaluate on a curve based on how much money and resources were used. Denver was ecstatic when the Broncos acquired him. There was finally relief from the Peyton Manning quarterback blues. A contender would be the Broncos.
They started Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler, Case Keenum, Joe Flacco, Drew Lock, Brandon Allen, Jeff Driskel, Brett Rypien, and Teddy Bridgewater as their quarterbacks from 2016 to 21. Perhaps this extreme quarterback shortage caused some desperate choices. In either case, the trade, the hiring of Hackett, and Russell Wilson’s contract appear to be an anchor that will hold the Broncos back for some time.

Denver is in a terrible situation, and despite CBS’ Tony Romo’s best efforts to portray the Broncos’ future as promising, it is not. Unless a new head coach is able to make Russell Wilson better, which will be necessary.
Broncos Suffer A Humiliating Loss Because of Russell Wilson
The defence for the Denver Broncos wasn’t particularly outstanding either. Most of the season, that bunch has been strong. The Broncos made Baker Mayfield look like a star on Sunday.
It’s also difficult to point the finger at the Broncos’ defence. When you are aware that the offence will not help at all, it must be difficult to retain an edge.
Mayfield traded. By halftime, he was 18 of 20 for 185 yards and two touchdowns. Mayfield hasn’t been great this season, save for a few miraculous minutes in his Rams debut against the Las Vegas Raiders. He looked amazing thanks to the Broncos. The Rams’ single-game completion percentage record was broken by Mayfield, surpassing Kurt Warner’s previous mark. With 230 yards, Mayfield completed 24-of-28 passes. Russell Wilson hasn’t looked better at any moment this season than he did.
The Broncos weren’t going to make a comeback, after all. Early in the third quarter, Russell Wilson threw another terrible interception, this time foolishly throwing the ball into the end zone when there was no available receiver. A simple interception was made by Jalen Ramsey. The interceptions stick out, but almost every play Russell Wilson made was terrible, a rehash of his season-long struggles. He kept the ball for too long and was sacked six times. A quarterback who earns $240 million per year misfired on far too many passes. Rypien entered the game with 6:16 remaining, after Wilson had successfully led a touchdown drive. On his first possession, Rypien threw a pick-six.
Russell Wilson’s play may have started to decline last season, but a collapse like this was unforeseeable. Few quarterbacks in NFL history have transitioned at Russell Wilson’s age from a position of prominence to complete incompetence. At age 34, Joe Namath had a forgettable season with the Los Angeles Rams. Even though that was 45 years ago, that might be the most appropriate comparison to what Russell Wilson is showing us today.
Additionally, it is not a one-year problem. Russell Wilson’s issue won’t be resolved even if general manager George Paton or Hackett are gone. The new coach or general manager would inherit a huge deficit that won’t be closing any time soon.

Won’t lie, I’m not sure I would have ever fully recovered from the #Bears trading what the Broncos did for Russell Wilson & getting this type of return.— Aaron Leming (@AaronLemingNFL) December 25, 2022
This is quickly trending as the single worst trade in NFL history & it might not even be close. Holy hell man.
