Garett Bolles thinks Denver Broncos are ‘neck and neck’ with Chiefs
Denver Broncos LT Garett Bolles is confident that the team is right there with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Denver Broncos got blown out by the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 43-16. Despite that, however, left tackle Garett Bolles had a lot of confidence following the game.
How much confidence, you ask?
Bolles was so confident that he said that he feels like the team is right there with the Chiefs. They’re close to being a playoff team.
It’s disappointing to see so many errors on both sides of the ball. From poor play calling, miscommunications, and poor decision making on offense to missed tackles on defense, it’s hard to see that the team is “right there” with Kansas City.
Before the season, many expected big things from this team. While they won the two previous games before Sunday, it’s safe to admit that they are not exactly “right there” with the Chiefs. Many things need to be cleaned up.
It’s not all just one thing. It’s a combination of things that have made the team look poor.
Bolles also said that he doesn’t feel like there’s anything that makes the Chiefs more spectacular than the Broncos.
At this point, all of that just feels like poorly-timed bulletin board material.
The Broncos are 2-4 following Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. There needs to be a lot better play from all phases. While Bolles has been solid this year, there is always room for improvement.
It’s not impossible for the team to improve enough to reach the playoffs in a wildcard position. That possibility is not over until they are mathematically eliminated.
It is also not a surprise that the Chiefs defeated the Broncos. When giving my picks for the week, I did originally choose the Chiefs, but pulled a switch-a-roo and chose the Broncos.
I was a little too confident I guess. But that sort of confidence is something that each member of the Broncos—and every sports team for that matter—needs to have.
Unfortunately, the Broncos didn’t do enough to even come close to winning on Sunday.
On to the Chargers.
