People usually say that the best cure to mend a broken heart is for there to be distance and time between the parts involved. Well, apparently the NFL didn’t feel like caring about what Seahawks fans were feeling after seeing their perennial all-star QB Russell Wilson leave the team and join the Denver Broncos, who also happen to be their first opponents of the season at home, in the return of Wilson to the northwest. With a Seahawks team looking to start a rebuild process and the Broncos feeling like they finally struck gold by signing Wilson to lead them to another Super Bowl, will sentiments win or will pure, raw and unmatched talent take the game?
The Denver Broncos had everything going for them when you read their roster from the past couple of seasons except for one department, the QB department. But now, after signing former Super Bowl champion and one of the most respected QB’s in the league in recent years, Russell Wilson, it finally feels like the Broncos have found the man that will once again take them to the top of their game. With an offense full of up-and-coming, explosive talents and a defense that can easily be taken as one of the best units not only in the AFC but in the whole league in itself, it’s not hard to see why backing the Broncos this season will be one of the smartest moves to make.
Will the sentiments of having to play his former team from so early on in the season have some sort of negative effect on Wilson? We don’t think so and it looks like nobody else feels like it either. This Broncos team is one where a will and spirit to fight, a respect for resilience and an overload of talent are their main calling cards, something that the Seahawks will have a lot of trouble trying to stop, especially after losing not only Wilson but also defensive leader Bobby Wagner to the Rams as well.
For the Seahawks, even with having players like DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett on offense and Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs leading the defense, the idea of beating the Broncos is one that holds as much weight as a feather flying through the air. While the team has some talented players in their squad and one of the best coaches around in Pete Carroll, the truth of the matter is that without Wilson, this team will struggle, greatly and they will not have a good time receiving the Broncos in week 1, where a loss is sure to come for the home team.
