The Denver Broncos suffered an embarrassing loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, and Chris Harris Jr. had some words on Monday…

The Denver Broncos are, predictably, not happy as a collective group after Sunday’s horrible loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Denver defense doesn’t lack for strong personalities, and win or lose, those guys are always honest after games. For cornerback Chris Harris Jr., the bar is already set as high as it can be. His comments to the media on Monday are revealing in so many ways, and you just have to read what he says.

Here is a transcript of Harris’ Monday press conference:

As you can see with Harris’ comments there, the mood in the locker room, at least from his perspective, is not good. And why would it be?

The Denver defense has done its part the past two seasons, specifically on the back end where Harris plays, to play championship caliber football. Against the Chargers, the defense allowed just 14 points, with one of the Chargers’ touchdowns coming on a really poor play by the Broncos’ special teams.

Harris isn’t the only one getting frustrated, either.

Aqib Talib took to Twitter on Monday night, apparently not happy with the way the media portrays the team when things are good and how quickly it shifts when things are bad.

Brandon Marshall, the Broncos’ stud inside linebacker, also posted this on his Instagram story. The timing is everything:

You have to think that if this is how players are talking in public, it’s probably a lot worse behind closed doors.

The Broncos need a win in the worst way, and unfortunately for them, they are facing one of the toughest stretches of games they will play all season. They are getting the Kansas City Chiefs this week coming off of a tough loss to the Raiders on the road, and with additional rest having played last Thursday night.

They also play the Eagles and Patriots in this next stretch of games.

No one promised this season would be easy, so the Broncos have to find a way to first and foremost, score some points. That seems to be very, very difficult of late.

Harris’ comments about the defense not allowing any points have a strong hint of sarcasm, but that’s basically where things are at right now. Not only does the defense have to not allow any points, but they have to provide the offense with help in the form of scoring some points of their own.

That’s pretty much where things are at, and the defense isn’t happy about it.

I don’t know exactly what they are hoping will happen for the team offensively, whether it’s a personnel change or whatever, but they obviously don’t like how things are at the moment.

At all.
