Move on

The 2-4 Denver Broncos could be pointing a lot of fingers and making a lot of excuses for last week’s loss and how the season has started. They’ve chosen not to.

Through the first five games of the season, the Broncos were unable to create any kind of running game. The Offensive line, however, didn’t turn around and point at Laurence Maroney, explaining to us that he dances for half an hour in the backfield then walks through the, in blocking terms, “hole.” Likewise, the Running backs weren’t complaining about the offensive line not holding their blocks long enough and creating holes to run through, and the coaches weren’t pointing out either one specifically.  As a whole, the team knew everyone had to do a better job together.

The following week against the Jets, the Broncos had their best game on the ground, rushing for nearly 150 yards. As a whole, the team was better, the backs ran harder, the line seemed to know what was going on, and the Broncos got creative, giving an end-around to Wide Receiver Eddie Royal and by using Rookie Quarterback Tim Tebow in special situations. All factors led to a better running game, and it all started by manning up and not playing the blame game.

Similarly, the Broncos are not dwelling on a pass interference call, they are not going to release J.D. Walton, they aren’t mentioning that they’ve played the toughest schedule in the NFL through the first six games, and are not throwing the season in the bag.

“I have nothing to say [about the interference call],” Safety Renaldo Hill said. Hill went on to say he was just trying to keep his balance, and has moved on from the subject. Broncos receiver Brandon Lloyd added, “Nothing was taken from us.”

If the Broncos are for real, and can really move on and put this weeks loss behind them, they have a legitimate chance at winning the division.

“I think a game like this is going to make or break our team,” said Denver Broncos Defensive End/Outside Linebacker Jarvis Moss. Jarvis also noted, “I think this team is every bit as good as we were at this time last year and even better.”

With an easier schedule down the road, what looks to be an improving running game, and an optimistic team, isn’t it time we the fans join the Broncos in growing up and stop complaining about the past and embrace the future? There’s ten games left, go get ‘em Broncos.

    Not to be biased but I think that the Denver Broncos 2010 draft class have THE BEST draft class. They all contribute to the New York Jets game. Bay Bay Thomas got a TD, Tebow got a TD, Zane Beadles and J.D. Walton didn't gave up a sack, Perrish Cox played great and almost got a INT and Syd’quan Thompson got a INT. Sure the Broncos lost in a heart-breaker but things are looking up. Safe to say that the 2010 draft class contribute a lot better than the 2009 draft class.

    So I guess is “Alt Broncos” is a dead feature then?

    Depends when Kyle gets his life back. That's his piece to run. I would enjoy some Cutler schadenfreude.

    This team is young and is learning under fire. With all of our division games left to play, the playoffs are not out of the question. We should win 7 or 8 games out of the ten left and be sitting pretty at 9 or 10 wins. Will it be enough to win the west or secure a wild card? Game time experience is being given to these young players and I like what I see. A playoff game under their belt heading into next year would also be huge for experience and offseason motivation. Relax Bronco nation this team is headed in the right direction for once.

    Thank you!! finally someone else that realizes McD struck gold this year! I've been a Syd fan since he got drafted, and I predicted we would draft Bay-Bay (in the 2nd round though). we have a VERY solid class this year. congrats to McD

    i dont care wat people say i think kyle orton is the best qb in the NFL so far this season b4 the Jets game he did his best elway impersonation and had this team on his back denver is definitely getting better and the run game has returned when the D gets healthy then this team is going to be scary looking

  • Dan
