The Broncos' rushing attack was ranked 17th in YPC, squarely in the middle of the pack. It wasn't so anemic to have caused major problems with a quarterback's passing efficiency to the point that it would explain Russell's struggles.Broncos failure was mostly due the the league leading injuries. Wilson has always struggle without a run game. Wilson force a lot of things he normally never did before. I think w/ Payton quick high percentage plays is going to help him tremendously. Along w/ getting Williams back. I wouldn't be surprise if they go after another RB that can catch.
Implementing a high percentage passing game would be great if Payton can break Russell of his tendency to look for the home run ball. That's one of the reasons why he's holding onto the ball so long as he's unwilling to throw short and take what the defense gives him.
But if anybody can fix Russell, it's Sean Payton. This will be Payton's offense, not Russell's like it was under Hackett.
