Ranking the 3 most under-appreciated Denver Broncos players
Somehow, I truly believe that the fanbase is largely underappreciating Russell Wilson, what he’s done, and what he will do for the Denver Broncos.
When the Russell Wilson trade was announced, I felt my soul leave my body, but in a good way.
The Denver Broncos quarterback situation from 2016-2021 was perhaps the absolute worst in the NFL. Many of us fans watched games each and every week, and the recurring theme was the travesty under center.
Now, not only does the team have a competent signal-caller, but they now have a first-ballot, Hall of Fame quarterback who has one of the highest passer ratings in NFL history, has made nine Pro Bowls, has won a Super Bowl, has a winning playoff record, and is a Walter Payton Man of the Year.
Russell Wilson has been arguably one of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history already, and he still has the back half of his career to play.
I’ve seen fans be a bit cautiously optimistic with their expectations. Since the Denver Broncos have been bad for so long, some fans may not feel right in saying that the team is going to win a ton of games and make a deep playoff run this year.
With Wilson under center, I think that is likely to happen every year.
In his first nine seasons, Wilson accumulated a 98-45-1 regular season record, never missing a game and never winning less than 9 games in a season.
He’s likely to insert himself into the top 20 all-time for passing yards and is 15th in NFL history in touchdown passes.
Russell Wilson will go down as one of the very best to ever do it, and I think Broncos Country is still a bit uneasy about how good the team will be.
I would totally understand this if the team only managed to make a trade for Jimmy Garoppolo or Kirk Cousins.
If the team had traded for one of those two, for example, I’d have pegged the Broncos as a 9-10 win team, maybe having a chance at a Wild Card position.
The Broncos trading for Wilson put them at the very top of the NFL in terms of quarterback play. The team didn’t just get an average quarterback.
Denver Broncos 53-man roster prediction with OTAs in the books
The Denver Broncos are officially done with OTAs, which means there will be a break until training camp. What could the 53-man roster look like?
Russell Wilson is ready to set the league on fire this year, and I think Broncos Country is going to be pleasantly surprised.
