Ryan Clark roasts Russell Wilson over poor play

Former NFL player and current NFL analyst Ryan Clark threw some shade at Russell Wilson as he mocked him for his phrase "let Russ cook." This past offseason, the Denver Broncos completed a blockbuster trade for Wilson because they felt they were just a good quarterback away from winning a Super Bowl.

Five games into the 2022 season, the Broncos are 2-3 and their offense has been one of the worst in the NFL so far this year. Wilson himself has been playing poor at the start of the year as he has just four touchdown passes and has also thrown three interceptions.

“I’ve been out in front of this. I said it in the offseason: he’s not an all-time great. Just plugging Russell Wilson in doesn’t give you an offense that can automatically get you to the Super Bowl," Clark said on ESPN's Get UP.

Clark: We will starve if we are going to wait on Wilson's cooking

“At some point, we need to realize we are now ordering Uber Eats. We are now waiting on our waiter. We are not letting Russ cook. If we’re waiting for Russ to cook in Denver, we are going to starve," Clark added.

On Thursday Night Football, Wilson delivered a pretty poor performance. Wilson completed 21-of-39 of his passes versus the Indianapolis Colts, had zero touchdowns, and also had two costly interceptions. After the Colts claimed a 12-9 overtime win in Denver, Wilson admitted he felt like he let his team down.

"We felt like we should have won that game. I felt like I let us down tonight. Lot of season left, lot of opportunity. [There is] so much good, but the bad is bad. We should have won that game. It's on me," Wilson said. With two minutes left to play in overtime, the Broncos were facing a fourth-and-1 inside the red zone.

The Broncos elected not to kick a field goal and instead went for a touchdown and victory. But Wilson's pass to Courtland Sutton was deflected as the Colts escaped with a 12-9 victory. "We had a good play call on. Guy made a good play.

I was ready to move around if I needed to. We went for it. We didn't want to end in a tie, we wanted to win the game. I've got to find a way to make a play, whatever it takes," Wilson said. In Week 6, the Broncos are playing the Los Angeles Chargers on the road.
