Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Denver Broncos fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate.

After a strong offensive performance from the Denver Broncos in their 24-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals last week, we asked fans if the team should sit Russell Wilson for the rest of the season and roll with Brett Rypien instead. Surprisingly, most fans went with the undrafted backup on this one.


The Broncs have already confirmed that Wilson will start this week, which I think most of us expected despite the brutal concussion he suffered two weeks ago. I voted with the minority on this one, because teams just don’t bench a healthy starting quarterback regardless of record. Rypien played against the league’s worst scoring defense, so comparing his points production to Wilson’s average is not an apples to apples comparison either.

The good news is, after a strong offensive performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in a loss and a strong offensive performance in a win over the Cardinals, confidence in Broncos Country is on the rise. 19% may seem low, but its quadruple what it was three weeks ago. That is progress in the right direction.
