Russell Wilson deserves the blame in both Denver and Seattle

Whether Russell Wilson saw it that way or not, a trade from Seattle to anywhere else was always going to be the biggest risk of his career. How lucky we’d all be if the giant leap of faith in our personal lives could also come with $124 million in guaranteed money.

But if narrative control is anything Wilson cares about, these are terrible times. The Broncos have averaged 15 points in their first five games and haven’t topped 23. Their overtime loss to the Colts on Thursday night was so bad that Kirk Herbstreit called their overall offensive performance “horrible” against the duration of the transmission. So far, most of the burden has been shouldered by new Denver coach Nathaniel Hackett, with constant references to time management hiccups and myriad cut shots of the team’s new assistant coach brought in to help with those issues.
