Russell Wilson enjoyed one particularly strong quarter in the Denver Broncos’ loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night.
Then he reverted back to being the same disaster he has been throughout this entire season thus far.
Wilson has been so bad with his new group that it is now openly frustrating his Broncos teammates:

Wilson’s new teammates aren’t the only ones annoyed with him, though. It appears as though Wilson’s old squad members like Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman aren’t too happy with him either.
During a recent chat, Lynch and Sherman made a troubling revelation about their former quarterback: he allegedly made them go through his manager in order to talk to him.
This moment on the Richard Sherman podcast perfectly encapsulates why Russell Wilson’s personality rubs people the wrong way. Apparently even ex-teammates have to go through his manager to get a hold of him because they don’t have his personal phone number. pic.twitter.com/zVx9lxGpXN

“He on the struggle bus,” Sherman said.
“Man, I want to reach out to dogg,” Lynch replied.
“Yeah. We talk to him … his manager,” Sherman mused. “His manager.”
Lynch seemed to agree.
“If I can’t call you direct, I ain’t calling you,” he said. “Especially if I went to war with you.”
This certainly feeds into the portrayal out there of Wilson that he is an extremely aloof guy who is more concerned about playing the role of the perfect Christian husband with his wife, Ciara, than anything else.
The fact that both Lynch and Sherman seem to be hinting at this is telling. And considering the troubling report that emerged just a few weeks ago about Wilson and Ciara’s attitude towards people, a clear pattern is beginning to develop.
The Broncos gave up two first round picks, two second round picks, a fifth round pick, Drew Lock, Shelby Harris and Noah Fant for Wilson. Then they gave their new quarterback $245 million.
What has all that netted the team? A 2-4 record and one of the league’s worst offenses.
Clearly something needs to change. Wilson is in the headlines far more these days for his and Ciara’s provocative outfit choices than substantive on-the-field accomplishments.

Will he and the Broncos ultimately be able to turn things around, right the ship and salvage some semblance of respectability this year?
