It’s clear to anyone who’s watched the Denver Broncos this season that the team has been extremely disappointing on offense as star quarterback Russell Wilson has had what is without a doubt the worst season of his career. It’s gotten so bad that head coach Nathaniel Hackett has even had to answer questions about potentially benching Wilson.
Things somehow got even worse on Sunday night as the team fell 51-14 to the Los Angeles Rams in a game where Russell Wilson got roasted by a cartoon character and the Broncos got into a fight on the sideline. After the game, Wilson got pretty blunt about the state of the team right now, saying “the reality is, it’s been a storm.”
Russell Wilson on how season went so wrong and what must change: “A lot needs to happen. No. 1, I have to play to the standards that I know how to play to. And I've been playing to my whole career. I'll never let a moment like tonight define me. (1/4) #9sports https://t.co/X3rEVp1OXl

“A lot needs to happen,” Wilson said, via Mike Klis of KUSA. “No. 1, I have to play to the standards that I know how to play to. And I’ve been playing to my whole career. I’ll never let a moment like tonight define me. We’re at a low moment right now. I don’t fear low moments because I know every time I’ve always come out the other side. All I know how to do is keep fighting, keep battling. The reality is, it’s been a storm. It’s been a storm all year. It’s not what we hoped for, not what we dreamed for. But it doesn’t mean it’s going to end that way for years to come. We got to change it and like I said it starts with me.”
Obviously, it’s far too late this season as the team has already been eliminated from playoff contention. But Wilson and the Broncos will obviously want to get the offense fixed by next season.
