The Seattle Seahawks are taking on the Denver Broncos to kick off Monday Night Football. Russell Wilson returns to Seattle and he’s been given a rather cold welcome by the fanbase. It’s been a sight to behold, especially considering how much Wilson has done for the city of Seattle.

Seahawks Fans Boo Russell Wilson As He Takes The Field With The Broncos

First, it happened in the pregame and it’s continued throughout the evening so far. ESPN shares a clip of the Seahawks faithful booing Russell Wilson as the Broncos head back to the locker room before kickoff.

It’s a bit weird to hear how many are booing the former Seahawks quarterback. Sure, he’s playing with the Broncos now, but Russell Wilson played a large role in Seattle throughout his tenure with the club. The NFL Twitter account even sent out a thread of everything Wilson has done for the team, fans, and city before getting traded to Denver.

It’s extremely absurd behavior from Seahawks fans. Especially considering Wilson brought home the only Super Bowl trophy in franchise history.

On top of that, Wilson is the best quarterback in Seahawks franchise history. With multiple playoff appearances and nearly winning a second Super Bowl for the organization, you’d think Seattle would appreciate their future Hall of Fame player a bit more than they’re showing.

If you’re a Seahawks fan, how can you boo this man? In addition to his NFL accolades, Russell Wilson was a standout citizen in the city of Seattle. He visited the children’s hospital nearly every Tuesday during each season, created a charity foundation with his wife Ciara, and won the Walter Payton Award in 2020 for his contributions off of the field.

We’ll see how this game plays out, but Russell Wilson might go off against his former team now that he’s the quarterback of the Broncos.
