It is no secret that Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson has had some issues getting his footing with his new team.
He and the rest of the offense aren’t meshing. Nathaniel Hackett is already on the fans’ hot seat. Wilson is being scrutinized weekly.
Now, a former NFL player believes that his ties with the Seahawks may be affecting his play in Denver.
Tyler Polumbus, a former offensive lineman for the Broncos, broke down his thoughts on Wilson.
"Russ is losing his mind out there– he's using audibles from the Seahawks. The guys don't know the audibles. He's using codewords that the guys don't know"— 92.5 FM – Denver's Altitude Sports Radio (@AltitudeSR) November 17, 2022

Polumbus won Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos.
He believes that there is a lot of miscommunication happening within the Denver offense.
Using callouts that he used with Seattle’s receivers won’t resonate with Denver’s pass catchers.
It would make sense as well if this is the problem in Denver right now.
There is not a lack of talent for the Broncos, but incorrect audibles and routes can lead to an inconsistent offense.
That’s what the Broncos are right now, and it is costing them football games every single week.
Their defense is elite, but a lack of fluidity between Wilson and the rest of the offense could be caused by some of Wilson’s tendencies and habits from Seattle showing up in Denver.

If that’s the case, the Broncos and Wilson need to figure it out as soon as possible. It’s on Wilson and his coaching. Adjustments must be made going forward in order for the offense to get on track.
