Wilson was seen during Denver’s season-opening game against the Seattle Seahawks imploring players on the sideline to shout to the defense whether or not it was a pass play or a run play.
Thomas tweeted that he felt like this wasn’t helpful in any way.
Here’s his explanation.
…what happens if it’s a good play action fake by the QB; the linebacker fills a hole at the LOS, meanwhile voiding his pass coverage zone, because the sideline yelled “run”; comes to the sideline and tells the coach he gave up a TD pass cause he heard “run” from the sideline🤣— Joe Thomas (@joethomas73) September 21, 2022
Wilson has been accused of being over the top before with some of his mannerisms and things he does (like when he dropped a hype video last season because he was returning to the field after a few weeks of being sidelined).
I’ve never taken a snap in the NFL, so I can’t side with either of these guys. But Thomas makes some great points. This could just be something Wilson is doing for “show”.
If that’s the case, then I can see why he rubbed some of his Seattle teammates the wrong way.
