Going into this season I really felt that the Broncos were on the right track. We saw the departure of some highly compensated veterans who were simply not earning their paychecks. We saw the addition of younger, faster, men with fewer character issues who actually acted like they wanted to play. I was a 10-6 guy. I wanted to see four qualities in the Denver Broncos:
- Hard-nosed players. I wanted to see guys who were not afraid to hit somebody or tackle. They weren’t afraid of being hit or being tackled.
- Team-First players. I was, and remain, sick and tired of the “look at me” mentality displayed by some players. I wanted to see men who put the team goals above their own statistics.
- Character. I wanted to see men you were proud to say were Denver Broncos. We should never even begin to discuss multiple kids from multiple women in multiple states or wife-beaters.
- Players who never quit. I wanted to see men who gave 100% on every play no mater if we were 40 points ahead or 40 points behind.
Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending upon your point of view) I had to miss the raider game. I hate to loose games and I particularly hate to loose to the raiders, but I will at least be able to chalk it up to experience and growth if we met the objectives above. I would like to hear what you guys have to say.
Then we can put this POS game behind us and focus on the Jets.
