The Broncos’ defense seems to have had enough of Russell Wilson

It’s not exactly a secret that the Denver Broncos’ trade for Russell Wilson has been an unmitigated disaster. Giving up all kinds of draft capital and three players for the former Seahawks quarterback was supposed to be the deal that propelled Denver to the Super Bowl, but Wilson has appeared to be utterly lost in whatever offense head coach Nathaniel Hackett is putting out there. As the Broncos signed Wilson to a five-year, $245 million contract extension after the trade, they’re stuck with him for several more years.

As Wilson continued his execrable performances against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, it appeared to take its toll on a Broncos defense that has done everything possible to transcend its quarterback. Specifically, defensive tackle Mike Purcell had quite a few things about which to get in Wilson’s face.

It’s hard to blame Purcell or anyone else on that defense. The only question now is how long Hackett lasts.
