NFL: Twitter reacts to Russell Wilson saying ‘Let’s Ride’ after loss

When he played for the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Russell Wilson had a signature “Go Hawks” signoff for every press conference. When he joined the Denver Broncos this offseason, Wilson switched to “Let’s Ride.”

It’s seemingly supposed to have the same meaning as “Go Broncos,” but the catchphrase has evolved into a meme after a video of Wilson repeating it went viral this offseason.

Now, many fans in Denver are growing sick of the signoff, particularly when things aren’t going well.

After the Broncos fell to the Indianapolis Colts 12-9 in an ugly overtime loss on Thursday evening, fans and pundits braced for Wilson’s presser.

I swear if Russ ends his presser with “Let’s Ride” tonight…

Wilson went to the podium and accepted blame for the loss and his two interceptions. Then … he finished his press conference with a half-hearted “Let’s Ride.” Fans didn’t love the timing.

Despite a tough night, Russell Wilson still made sure to end his presser with a “Broncos Country, let’s ride.”pic.twitter.com/mnbAoI4hQe

Russel Wilson still ended the post game presser w/ “Broncos Country, let’s ride.”

It has less charm right about now.

I think Russell Wilson is a truly good dude but I also think there’s way more value to being authentic than putting on a facade to prove to people that you can’t be rattled. Vulnerability is relatable. Last night, “Let’s ride” was anything but relatable.

Probably not the best timing, Russ.

Wilson and his teammates will return to action when the Broncos go on the road to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 6.
