It sure seemed that way on Thursday night, as the former Seahawks corner was losing his mind after watching a Russell Wilson-led offense once again opt to throw the ball on fourth-and-one…and fail to convert.
In this case, Wilson was quarterbacking the Broncos in overtime against the Colts in one of the most god-awful football games we’ve witnessed in a while.
Rather than playing for the tie and kicking a chip-shot field goal, the Broncos decided to go for it on fourth-and-one from the Colts’ five-yard line late in overtime. But rather than using their ground game, which was finding success and racking up chunks of yards late in the game, Denver coach Nathaniel Hackett put the ball in Russell Wilson’s hands…
And it ended in disappointment for Broncos fans.
I’m sure the play-call (and the execution) upset many. But no one seemed more upset than Richard Sherman, who went off during the postgame show while yelling at Russ to “RUN THE BALL.”
Maybe the Broncos should consider hiring Richard Sherman as their next coach AND quarterback.
