We’re off and running.
The 2022 Broncos season is finally underway, as they battle the Seahawks in Week 1. A huge story before the game was how former Seattle QB Russell Wilson would be greeted by the crowd. Boos? Cheers? A smattering of both? Well, you can watch for yourself, starting with pregame. It was not friendly.

That was with the stadium half full. Here’s how it looked and sounded a little later on, right before kickoff.

You stay classy, Seattle. Apparently nine Pro Bowls in 10 years and two Super Bowl appearances, with one championship, wasn’t enough.
Oh well, Wilson’s in a much better spot now.
