As a former Denver Broncos quarterback, perhaps Chris Simms has a soft spot for current Broncos quarterbacks.
Last month, Simms ranked Denver backup Jarrett Stidham No. 32 in the NFL, making him a starting-caliber quarterback — at least in the opinion of Simms.
“I still think he can turn it around,” Simms said of Wilson coming off a poor season.
Simms noted that Denver could not run the ball in 2022, the offensive line struggled to protect the QB and Wilson was learning a new offense under Nathaniel Hackett. Simms seemingly believes that circumstances outside of Wilson’s control were major factors in the QB’s down year.
Wilson completed a career-low 60.5% of his passes in 2022 for 3,524 yards and a career-low 16 touchdown passes. Simms believes the 34-year-old quarterback will have a big bounce-back season in 2023. Broncos fans can only hope he’s right.
