Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos have had a forgettable season this year. After a record-breaking trade from the Seahawks this off-season, Wilson promised good things for Denver. However, he failed to live up to that expectation. Now, it seems like his own team is not supporting him anymore. On more than one occasion, many saw his teammates having a go at him.

Despite showing great professionalism, many were not happy with the Broncos’ poor season record. Earlier, the Broncos’ Twitter account posted the promo for the Ravens match-up. Interestingly, they put LB, Alex Singleton’s picture beside Lamar Jackson’s photo.

NFL insider Dov Kleiman retweeted that and in the caption, he wrote, The actual #Broncos put an LB next to Lamar instead of Russell Wilson in their promo, this can’t be an accident.

After seeing this, many fans commented on the post. One fan joked:

One more fan posted about the slogan.

One Twitter user feels Wilson is the most hated man in Denver.

Another Twitter user made fun of the admin for putting Alex Singleton.

Meanwhile, a few fans took a shot at the NFL insider, Kleiman, for looking too much into it.

One more fan clarified that the Broncos’ Twitter account does that regularly.

On the other hand, the admin of the Broncos’ Twitter account posted a clarification tweet, possibly taking a shot at the NFL insiders.

Despite the clarification, fans are still not happy with Wilson, as the Broncos are on a three-game losing streak.
