Broncos not discouraged by loss to open the season

The Denver Broncos seem pretty reasonable with how they are handling the first loss of the season. Despite the loss coming to the Oakland Raiders.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

As the week one knee jerk reactions are running rampant, it is refreshing to see some reasonable words from both the head coach and general manager in our two lead off articles from today’s news.

The team message in the locker room was “disappointed, but not discouraged” which seems pretty reasonable to me to hear.

It was just one game.

The coaches are new.

The schemes are new.

We have a new QB.

We only lost by one score and were in it up until the last minute.

That’s decent football and is something this team can build upon moving forward.
