New Broncos coach Payton has different plans for QB Wilson in 2023

Denver Broncos quarterback RUSSELL WILSON had a personal performance team made up of trainers, physical therapists, and others who had access to the team facility during the 2022 season. New headMore coach Sean Payton said on Monday that such a concept was “foreign to me”, and that things will be different this season. Payton added, “That’s not going to take place here.

Factoid: Denver Broncos

I like the Sean Payton hire. After his many seasons with the Saints, I think it’s fair to argue that he’s one of the top half-dozen offensive coaches in the history of the game. If there’s a coach out there who can get Russell Wilson back to being one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the game, it’s Payton.  more »

It's not like things could be any worse than what was the league's bottom-scoring offense a year ago.   more »

Factoid: Trevor Lawrence

It's hard to believe what we saw last night. Not only was it one of the more unbelievable comebacks in NFL history, regular season or playoffs, but it was also one of the unlikeliest turnarounds. Rare is a quarterback so bad and so good in the same game.   more »
