Aside from winning Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seattle Seahawks, he also has one All-Pro selection and nine Pro Bowl nods.
Those credentials made football fans and experts think that he will be an asset for a talented but underachieving Broncos offense.
However, as former NFL player Joe Thomas mentioned, his strategy to help the defense might not be the wisest of decisions,
Not sure this helps…I’ve never played defense in the NFL, but I can’t imagine that having 5 sideline players meagerly yell “pass” (a few seconds after the QB clearly drops back to pass) is going to remind the linebackers to drop into coverage🤷♂️ https://t.co/gmI8NkSDqB

Thomas tweeted, “Not sure this helps…I’ve never played defense in the NFL, but I can’t imagine that having 5 sideline players meagerly yell ‘pass’ (a few seconds after the QB clearly drops back to pass) is going to remind the linebackers to drop into coverage.”
It didn’t help the Broncos in that game because the relay of message was late and the Seahawks emerged victorious.
The Broncos had more problems on offense because they failed to score a touchdown on three trips to the red zone.
The game would have been a blowout if they crossed the end zone in all instances.
Likewise, they wouldn’t have had to resort to a 64-yard field-goal attempt to win the game.
That’s another blunder on head coach Nathaniel Hackett’s part instead of letting Wilson gain five yards for a first down.
Wilson Cannot Force What Should Happen
Therefore, they have what it takes to anticipate what the Seahawks were doing.
Limiting Seattle to 17 points is a fairly good job.
Meanwhile, Wilson has more concerns to settle on offense because they have scored 16 points in consecutive games.
Luckily, those points were enough to win over the Houston Texans.
However, it might not save them against teams with high-powered offenses.
