Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos are fresh off their second-straight terrible game that they somehow managed to win in the end. Denver’s defense combined with the quarterback’s well-established fourth-quarter heroics has allowed the team to win against the Houston Texans and most recently the 49ers.
Speaking on Get Up, former head coach Rex Ryan claimed the team was in trouble and in need of changes while saying that the team is ‘terrible.’
“I think they’re terrible, they scored 11 points. So to sit back and say this is the same Russell Wilson. No, it isn’t. And I’ll tell you why. It’s a way different scheme… throwing the deep ball off of play action is the best thing that he does. I don’t see that with this offense. They’re always in gun. The best thing you do is run the football, Denver.”
“Offensively, they’re trying to put a square peg in a round hole. I don’t get it. They need to go back to doing what Russ does, make this a Russell Wilson offense, which starts with predominantly running the football. And I think now they could be that team. They have the pieces to do it, but if they continue to run this offense, they’re not going to go anywhere.”
Russell Wilson is three games into his Broncos tenure, and although he is 2-1, his stat line has fans worried. In his first game, he threw for 340 yards and a touchdown. Things have gone down considerably since then.
In Week 2, he completed just 45 percent of his throws for 219 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
On Sunday Night Football, he threw for 184 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions. In total, he has two touchdowns and one interception through three games.
That is not going to cut it for a QB who just signed a massive extension.
