RUSSELL WILSON, AN OLD ACQUAINTANCE OF THE 49ERS
BY JORGE BRIONES
Over the past decade, Russell Wilson has become a headache for the 49ers. In San Francisco, they took a breather when they saw that the #3 abandoned the Seahawks, but very soon crossed them again now as a member of the Broncos.
Wilson is signing a start to the year for oblivion. A combined 559 yards, two TDs and an interception are numbers well below Denver’s expectations of the Super Bowl XLVIII winner.
And to make his situation worse, on Sunday Night he will have to deal with the best defense in the NFL.
The 49ers have the best overall and airborne defense, second against the run and third, in points allowed.
Once the severity of Trey Lance’s injury was confirmed, Jimmy Garoppolo regained the title at the helm of an offense that looks more effective from the hand of a quarterback who is thirsty for revenge.
Another clash between Wilson and Jimm-G is looming, though now it will be in Denver.
