The Denver Broncos are having a nightmarish season. The Broncos thought that their glory days will return with the coming of Russell Wilson as the quarterback. However, things haven’t quite gone according to DangerRuss and the Broncos Nation.

Nathaniel Hackett’s Broncos under Russell Wilson have been struggling and have lost four out of their last five games. Insiders close to the Broncos say that the Broncos QB is confused and does not know what he is doing.

Russell Wilson may not have completely moved on from the Seahawks

Russell Wilson left the Seattle Seahawks in the off-season after 9 years and a Super Bowl Ring. However, it’s been a series of disappointing results for him with the orange crush. Russell Wilson has the worst offensive start to a season, with the Broncos putting in only 131 points this season after Week 10. Wilson has only 7 touchdowns this season along with 5 interceptions. Former Broncos offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus spoke to sources inside the Broncos facilities and shared some disturbing news for the Broncos fan base.

Polumbus talked about the QB and head coach Nathaniel Hackett having their differences over offensive play calling. However, the most shocking thing to come out was Russell Wilson’s confusing actions. “Russell is losing his mind out there. He’s losing his mind. He’s at the line of scrimmage using audibles from the Seahawks. The guys don’t know what the audibles are. He’s using code words and guys don’t know what the code words are,” Tyler said.

This is causing some major confusion with the offensive line and is one of contributing factors to Denver’s dismal performance this NFL season. Denver Broncos fans could not believe this and one comment on the Twitter thread wrote, “this can’t be true.

DangerRuss needs to bring the Seattle form to Broncos Nation

Wilson had a fifty per cent completion game in the 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He did get a TD pass in his 286 yards but was also intercepted once. However, his confusing play calling affected the Broncos’ running the ball immensely. The highest rushing yards recorded in the match was a low 24 yards on 9 carries by RB Latavius Murray. Denver is 32nd in the NFL in points per game with only 14.6 PPG.
