When Russell Wilson got traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos, many believed he was still in the prime of his career. Two weeks into the season and it is clear that his best days might be behind him.
Speaking on NFL Live, NFL analyst Keyshawn Johnson delivered a hard-hitting statement on the QB:
“I think when you look at the situation, his best days are probably left in Seattle. If you go and you look at Seattle, when they were really rolling, Russ was doing okay. But it was about the defense. It was about Marshawn Lynch, it was about those sort of things.”
He then claimed that the “Let Russ Cook” era didn’t work as well as the “Legion of Boom” era:
“And then you fast forward to maybe ten years [later]. You look at the last four or five years, what he’s starting to try to do with Russell Wilson on the offensive side of the ball by pushing the ball down the field, but it didn’t amount to anything. They didn’t win big like they wanted to.”
