The Denver Broncos veterans are sick of losing. It’s playoff games for them from here on out according to C.J. Anderson.

The Denver Broncos season is on the ropes and their playmakers are sick over it. C.J. Anderson voiced his - and the teams - frustrations best when talking about what they must do to salvage their season.

“Got to be 12-4,” Anderson said. “We’ve got to find a way. Playoff games from here on out. Better detailed. Better focused. Take care of the ball better. 12-4.”

It was bad all around for the offense against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Anderson didn’t want to hear excuses. He wants action.

“You better not lose confidence in this business,” Anderson said when asked if the team is losing confidence. “Your butt will be out of here. Look, we’ve got to go 12-4 if we want to do anything. We’ve got to play better and that’s the truth. We’ve got to play better on the offensive side of the football. We, as playmakers, have got to make more plays. Running the ball good means absolutely nothing. We’ve got to find a way in our backfield to spring 40 – 50 – 60 – 70 yard runs.”

That’s a player who has played for a Super Bowl championship team. You can tell he knows what it takes to be successful in this league as a team and as a unit. Unfortunately, the Broncos do not have the quarterback talent to turn things around quickly - even if they make the change this week.

Anderson held back when pressed on how he feels about losing, but you can tell it makes him angry.

“I hate losing,” Anderson said. “I just hate it – all the way. There are some words I really want to say, but I can’t. I just hate losing.”

Good. The whole team should be angry now.
