Denver Broncos franchise quarterback Russell Wilson looked like one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL during large swaths of play this season.

The Broncos hired former Super Bowl champion and offensive guru Sean Payton in the offseason to help right that ship.

While Payton has ushered in a new regime while entered camp at a reduced weight, the quarterback had a horrible performance at Wednesday’s practice.

According to Will Petersen of DenverSports.com, Wilson threw two interceptions. One, to cornerback K’Waun Williams, was his third straight practice with a pick.

Wilson also had another pass batted down at the line of scrimmage. “Wilison is good for at least one of those a practice,” wrote Petersen. Wilson was also “late getting the ball to Courtland Sutton on a drill that could’ve resulted in a touchdown.” Petersen described the red zone portion of the practice as “tough” as Wilson went the entire practice without throwing a touchdown pass.

Payton, for his part, refused to show concern to the media in the ensuing interview.

“Yeah, no big whoop. He’s doing fine,” Payton said afterward while explaining the Broncos were still “installing” their offense.

Payton praised Wilson after Tuesday’s practice, so he’s clearly keeping things in the big picture as he navigates his first training camp with his new team.
