It looked like LA Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was going to have some competition as the second-best quarterback in the AFC West when the Denver Broncos traded for Russell Wilson. However, while Herbert continued playing at an elite level, Wilson ended up disappointing in his first season in Denver.
It became clear that Wilson could not keep up with Herbert on the football field. With Herbert only coming into his prime and Wilson leaving his prime, the gap between the two is only going to grow, Sean Payton be damned.
Herbert isn't just way ahead of Wilson on the gridiron, though. He is also way ahead of Russell Wilson on the golf course. While Herbert appears to have legitimate skill at the game of golf, Wilson is too busy overlooking bunkers like they are linebackers and flipping his golf cart into them.
No, we are not kidding. A $242 million quarterback flipped his golf cart into a bunker at the golf course. Justin Herbert would never.
Russell Wilson flipping golf cart is comedy gold for Chargers fans
It is always a good day when Chargers fans can laugh at the Broncos and it is even better considering Wilson appears to be okay and uninjured. With Wilson getting nothing more than his golf cart privileges taken away, Chargers fans can comfortably make fun of Mr. Unlimited.
Because of course, it had to be Wilson. Everything around the former Super Bowl-winning quarterback has been a disaster since he joined the AFC West and this is just the icing on the cake. With how great the Chargers' social media team is, we won't be surprised if we see several tweets throughout the year that is calling back to this very moment.
Heck, the social team is probably working on this year's schedule release video right now and might make a quarterback-style audible and include a flipped-over golf cart in the background of one of the team's matchups against the Broncos. We wouldn't put it past them.
