3 aggressive goals for Russell Wilson in his first season with Broncos
Russell Wilson is entering into a new era with the Denver Broncos, and there should be some goals he can accomplish in 2022.
Russell Wilson gives off the vibe that he always wants to get better, no matter what. He appears to be very legacy oriented, meaning it’s clear he wants to build his own legacy to be as thorough and great as possible.
That would also mean his teams see insane success. The Broncos, I think, are about to see as much as, or more success than the team had with Peyton Manning from 2012-2015. Now that Wilson has been in the NFL for a while, he’s beginning to climb up the all-time leaderboards in many categories.
Russell Wilson surely wants to end his career near the top of some of the most popular quarterback statistics, so here are three goals for the 2022 season that will help him get there.
3 aggressive goals for Russell Wilson on the Broncos in 2022
Pass Joe Flacco and move to 19th all-time in passing yards
Russell Wilson is currently 26th all-time in passing yards with 37,059. Joe Flacco, former Broncos’ quarterback, is 19th all-time with 41,269. It looks like Joe Flacco will get to play a few games this year too, as Zach Wilson is out with an injury.
Even if Flacco does play some games, I think one goal for Russell Wilson in 2022 is to pass Flacco to sit at 19th all-time in yards. As it stands now, he is 4,210 yards away from Flacco. 4,000 yard seasons in the NFL are becoming very common, and the barrier that a lot of quarterbacks want to break now is the 5,000-yard mark.
With the extra regular season game, Peyton Manning’s passing yard and touchdown record are in danger. I think Russell Wilson can easily throw for 4,000 yards in this offense, and being able to pass up quarterbacks on the all-time list like Donovan McNabb, Boomer Esiason, Johnny Unitas, and Joe Montana would be a monumental accomplishment.
