The Broncos held their introductory press conference with head coach Sean Payton on Monday.

Their quarterback made his feelings known about the days happenings with a tweet.

“Excited to get to work. Fired Up! Congrats Coach,” Wilson said, tagging Payton and the Broncos.

Colin Cowherd of FOX Sports said on the Jan. 19 episode of The Heard that Wilson had been in contact with Payton and wanted the coach to come to Denver. Part of that was Wilson knowing he “needs fixing” and wanting Payton to come in and help.

Wilson had the worst season of his career in 2022, completing 60.5 percent of his passes for 3,524 yards with 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He was also sacked a league-leading 55 times, despite playing only 15 games.

But Wilson will face at least some changes in the building with Payton at the helm. The head coach said on Monday that players having their own personal coaches in the building is “foreign” to him and won’t happen any longer.

  1. I love how Russell Wilson stunk the whole year and everyone thinks a new coach is going to make him better… Russ is trash, and Sean Payton is about to find out first hand

  2. I’m sure Wilson’s ready to take it one game at a time, focus on the fundamentals, play how he”s capable of playing, give everything he has on the field, knowing that there are no easy games in this league and whatever other overused cliche that has been programmed into his head. Clown shoes…
