Quarterback Russell Wilson is no longer telling Broncos Country to ride after Week 6 loss.
Upon arriving from the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Russell Wilson came up with a new catchphrase for Denver Broncos. It was “Broncos Country, let’s ride.” It was a slogan that caused some football fans to cringe upon hearing it. That only got worse as the losses and the less than impressive wins rolled in early on in the season.
It seems as though a Week 6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers was enough to retire the catchphrase. After losing 19-16 in overtime on Monday Night Football, Wilson did not end his press conference with “Broncos Country, let’s ride.”
Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports tweeted out that Wilson did not use the catchphrase to end his press conference on Wednesday either.

Wilson did catch a lot of flak after he said the catchphrase after a 12-9 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5. One week later, after losing in overtime for the second week in a row, it appears Wilson has decided to put a pause on the slogan.
Speaking of the game against the Chargers, Wilson and the offense got off to a solid start in the first quarter. He completed all 10 of his passes for 116 yards and a touchdown in the first 15 minutes of regulation. For the remainder of the game, Wilson completed just 5-of-18 pass attempts for just 72 yards. Those statistics come courtesy of FOX Sports NFL.
After the game, it was revealed that Wilson had suffered a hamstring injury, with his status now being described as “day-to-day.”
The Broncos will look to bring an end to their losing streak with a win over the New York Jets. If they do, it will remain to be seen if “Let’s Ride” will return.
