Top 10 AFC QB’s: Where does Dolphins’ QB Tua Tagovailoa rank?
By Juan Vasquez
Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos:
The Russell Wilson slander I’ve seen as of late is truly incredible, after a bad 2021 season where Wilson was dealing with a severe finger injury many people have counted him out. Words like “washed” or “falling off” have been used a lot when talking about Wilson and it shows me the recency bias the media has with QB’s.
Last year Russell Wilson suffered a finger injury that kept him sidelined for close to a month, what originally was supposed to be season ending for Russ ended up being a “mild” hiccup. But of course Wilson was far from 100% upon his return, he risked a worse injury by coming back prematurely and also put up some very ugly film on tape.
Pre-injury Russell Wilson wasn’t playing excellent football during the 2021 season, but he also wasn’t playing horrible, not even close. And horrible is what I would call the rest of that roster besides Wilson, Metcalf, Lockett, or Wagner.
Wilson asked for a trade and took his talent to the Broncos, at 33 years old Wilson still has almost a decade left of quality football and joined a Denver Broncos team that has good, or great pieces at every position, final piece was the QB. I remember 2 years ago a QB that many thought was done-for went to a team that was almost ready win, and ended up doing quite well. Last year the same happened to another QB, many thought he as washed up and he ended up doing quite well.
Don’t sleep on Wilson, Broncos will let Russ cook.
