Broncos Lose A Second Time

Ok, circulation has returned to my hands and I am finally ready to type this thing. However, I’m going to keep it short because I am religiously rooting for the Patriots to turn things around and beat the Chargers.

After spending the better part of the afternoon sitting in a rainy 40 degree stadium, the loss has hit home. Literally, the loss has hit home for the Broncos after six consecutive wins at Invesco. Who cares if Jay Cutler says that he has a stronger arm than John Elway. It was the Jags QB, David Garrard who ruled the turf on Sunday. Cutler was lucky to hold onto the ball. He had one fumble and an interception. His passing game was understandably lacking in certain respects. Eddie Royal and Tony Scheffler were missing due to injury and receiver Brandon Stokley left the game early due to a blow to the head. Therefore, Cutler threw to Brandon Marshall every single time. He was trying to force things into Marshall, and the Jags were onto him. No wonder, the offense couldn’t get it going.

People are going to argue about the blown calls late in the game, but the Broncos should have never put themselves in the position to have a referee make or break the game for them. Like the Broncos, the Jaguars turned the ball over a couple of times, only their defense was able to recover, and their offense got back on track. The Broncos missed tackles and missed a few chances to get sacks for major lost yardage. Where was that defense that we saw in the Tampa Bay game?

Now, with another loss under their belt, they need to compose themselves, have a good week at practice, and head to Foxborough with some confidence… and healthy players.

    Well I dont have much to say about this game, other than we should have won and didn’t. The 2 bad calls that I saw wouldnt have made a difference in the game if we had not turned the ball over 3 times to begin with. We gift wrapped this game for the Jags. All in all our Broncos played a sloppy game, and paid for it.  We could make excuses all day long, but in the end we lost due to mistakes that “good” football teams should not be making at this point in the year. Hopefully this will be adressed this week in practice! I am hoping we turn it around on Monday Night Football, especially since all my East Coast friends & family out here only see my  Broncos play on tv a couple times a year. I always hope for a great showing! Of course I watch them all on Direct TV Sunday Ticket! Lets get this offense firing on all cylinders again, shore up our defense, and get our special teams rolling!  We have the talent, we just need to execute better!  GO BRONCOS!!!
