Despite the signing of former Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson, the Denver Broncos season has been a dismal failure. This wasn’t how it was meant to proceed. Many people believed that the Broncos would be Super Bowl contenders and that they needed just one more quarterback to take off. There goes that.
Wilson has drawn criticism for his unwavering optimism and catchphrases, despite the subpar performance and defeat. His teammate Mike Purcell was observed ranting at Wilson this week, which seemed to be the tipping point. But according to NFL Network Insider Mike Garafolo, there may be a small rift that dates back to his arrival in Denver.

Garafolo revealed his insight on the “Insiders’ show” on the NFL Network. We were informed early on that these men were secretly rolling their eyes at Wilson when he was acting silly during the offseason and into training camp.
But before the season even starts, Wilson’s antics are one thing. Wilson, though, must perform when the team deals with its future. As he is currently through the worst season of his career, he has done anything but that. According to some sources, he was shouting out audibles that he had previously utilized with the Seahawks. His former teammates are lining up to criticize him.
It appears that his present teammates are annoyed by his pranks. If Russell Wilson could guide the squad to victories, all would be forgiven. The Broncos, who are at 3-8, were just humiliated by the Carolina Panthers.
