A game manager as MVP?Wilson is going to have an MVPish season under Payton.
Last year was a fluke.
A game manager as MVP?
Is this a Flintstones reference? Or Ciara = "Wilma"? Consult Urban Dictionary? Just a little help with this...Payton started with taking Wilson's office, then forbidding entourage to enter the building, now not letting him cook, limiting him to a game manager just like that Pete Carroll. Russell can take it, but that little Wilma inside sure ain't gonna.
nah, I randomly made it up to tease Russ, may be I should have used "Rose" instead of Wilma. I found some of Wilson's behave or strategies were more like petty little girl. Flintstones' Wilma was strong but level-headed person, I quite like her, the petty little girl that lives in Wilson' mind would be quite the opposite of Flintstone Wilma.Is this a Flintstones reference?

Sean Payton could be Barney Rubble... close resemblance, don't cha think?Is this a Flintstones reference? Or Ciara = "Wilma"? Consult Urban Dictionary? Just a little help with this...
For nothing else 2022 showcased that Letting-Russ-Cook won't work. Off topic, Russ's arm strength, his ball velocity at combine was same as Geno's, but nowhere close to Brady or Allen or Mahomes, watching Wilson's film, his receivers often had to brake and turn around for his long balls, ideally, WRs would want the ball to land perfectly ahead of them to keep stride, wouldn't they?OK, so that inner narcissistic whiny biatch.
Gotta say, I speed-watched some of the Seahawks 2013 games on YT and the 2012 Patriots game, and Wilson was remarkable in 2012-2013, with his off-script ball, but it was also clear how much Lynch's running affected defenses and supported Russell's passing. Also clear how amazing that LOB defense was. Also what popped was the number of key special teams plays Hawks made that helped get the W. Tate with Punt returns, Kearse even busted a 45 yard kick return.
The 2022 Russell looks a full step slower than the 2012-2013 Russell. Plus no Marshawn Lynch factor. So it's no wonder Payton is investing in the run game
He's been throwing floaters for a while now.For nothing else 2022 showcased that Letting-Russ-Cook won't work.

Any odds on what week # Wilson will be benched in favor of Jarrett Stidham? My unscientific guess is that Stidham will be starting by Week #6, either due to Wilson injury or ineffectiveness. I don't think Wilson can run the full-fledged NFL offense Payton will want, and with Wilson's off-script magic greatly diminished, Stidham could be the better option for Payton.Wilson is in a very competitive division and the AFC is going to be stacked once more or it seems. Especially if Rodgers migrates to the Jets.
But I can see Wilson doing better in 2023 than 2022. Play action to set up his deep shots is his best hope of putting up big numbers.
Angry made Wilson looked great, saved Wilson butt in every game. Without Angry and his disciple Lockette, Wilson might not be a probowl QB. Don't believe me? See Bronco 2022.RW3 is going to be a handoff specialist and check-down Charlie. He will have to do that as he doesn't have the duo of Lockett/DK to bail him out on 3rd down desperation heaves. RW3 is going right back to where he doesn't want to be doing what he doesn't want to do, and I can't imagine him making it more than 6 weeks in that role.
This Wilson and Payton have to coexist, but for how long?The Broncos play the NFC North and the AFC East next season along with their divisional games. The AFC East is once again going to be competitive top to bottom with all four teams. The NFC North looks to have three strong teams in the Packers, Lions and Vikings with the Bears as a wildcard.
The Broncos must also face the Browns and Texans along with Washington. So overall I see 4-5 games that they should win. So SP has to find a way to win 4-5 more games to have the Broncos finish above .500.
Wilson has to keep the team competitive 8 weeks in or SP may go quickly to Stidham.
So far Payton appears to be trying to directly implement what worked in Seattle. Heavy usage of the running game with play action opening up a handful of deep shots for Russ per game. They're still a little short on personnel and are going to have to add RB and WR in the draft, preferably multiple.Last year wasn't as much of a fluke as you might think. It will be interesting to see if Payton figures out Russ' weaknesses and devises a successful plan to deal with them, in time for Russ to have an "MVPish" season. I kinda doubt it, but we'll see.
Russ looked good in Seattle in an offense built to take the pressure off him, and then was a catastrophe in Denver in an offense constructed to lean on him as a high volume passer. So far, everything Payton has done on offense is about minimizing the pressure on Russ and getting back to what was working in Seattle. If Russ does look better next year as a result, then that isn't a fluke but just further confirmation of what most of us have already figured out. Russ just doesn't have the football IQ or vision for a high volume efficient passing offense.
I expect they may wait and see how the draft unfolds, and then there will probably still be a pretty good list of veteran RBs floating around unsigned if they need one.I wonder if Denver can get in on the Derrick Henry convo. With Murray and Gordon gone, they're going to need a bellcow.
