Broncos’ quarterback Russell Wilson is adjusting to his new digs in Denver, and Doug wonders if his cheesy, straight-laced shtick is going to play the same way in the Mile High City as it did in Seattle. While the fans in Seattle watched him grow up in the league and consider him faultless, Denver fans don’t have the same history with him. If he doesn’t produce results, Broncos fans will turn on him quickly, especially if they think he is less than genuine.

Doug Gottlieb: “(Russell Wilson) is that guy who’s sitting very much in the front of class and simply wants to say the right thing to curry (favor)...just the inability to be authentic...Man, is he Cheeseball 101!”
