Russell Wilson was supposed to be the Denver Broncos answer at QB. They traded for him, and paid him a lot of money. The Broncos are 3-8, and Wilson has struggled this season. He has thrown eight touchdown passes and five interceptions through 10 games, leading the worst offense in the league. The offense ranks dead last in terms of scoring offense with just 14.7 points per game and Wilson is having the worst season of his career by far.
NFL analyst Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus points out that Wilson has been so bad that he as yet to even out pace a QB who hasn’t played a single down in weeks.
“Carson Wentz has 2 more passing TDs than Russell Wilson this season and he hasn’t played since Week 6 and has been benched,” Monson said on Twitter. “Also, for those keeping track, Wilson still has comfortably more bathrooms in his house than TDs this season.”
