Happy Birthday Russell Wilson. Let’s Talk QB’s!
Happy Birthday Russell Wilson. The Broncos quarterback turns 35 today. Wilson is one of the more unique quarterbacks in the NFL with his ability to run and throw his famous, accurate tear-drop bombs down field. He is also a Super Bowl winner from his days in Seattle. There were whispers that Russ had lost a step when the Seahawks shipped him to Denver. And, under Nathaniel Hackett’s system the whispers seemed to be true as his game dropped off significantly. However, after a slow start under new coach Sean Payton, Russell’s abilities are starting to shine again.
