The Denver Broncos’ first season with quarterback Russell Wilson had its fair share of issues, according to a report from The Athletic. The report, which cited multiple sources, claimed that some of the team’s coaches had issues with Wilson’s office in the team facility.
The report also said that Wilson had tried to get head coach Pete Carroll fired, which Wilson has since denied.
Rich Eisen of The Rich Eisen Show reacted to the report, calling it “a disaster” and saying that Wilson had too much influence in the organization.
Stephen A. Smith of HotNewHipHop went even further, saying that Wilson had “single-handedly destroyed” the Broncos’ season. He said that Wilson had been given too much power and that his influence had been “disastrous” for the team.
The Broncos finished the season with a 4-12 record, their worst since 2010. It remains to be seen how the team will address the issues raised in the report, but it is clear that changes need to be made in order for the team to improve.
