Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann is the epitome of positivity.
That’s especially true when it comes to her Denver Broncos and the last five years. But now even Doc is having trouble finding the positive in this crap sandwich. All one has to do is check out her Twitter feed on Broncos game days. To say the last four weeks have been rough is a John Madden-esque statement. But it’s still true.
On Friday’s Broncos Country Tonight, Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright talked with Laurie to break down how the fans are feeling and how Denver can save this season.
A little before the mid-point of the interview, Ryan asks Doc the key question: What would a win over Washington mean? What would a loss over Washington mean?
As Doc said:
“I’ll tell you what, a win over Washington isn’t going to mean that much. It’ll feel good, right? And thank god, because we need to win that one. But when you look at what we have on the schedule, we’re going to see Washington fall into the category that some of these other teams did. The Browns didn’t have their starting quarterback. They didn’t have their two running backs. And they still ran all over us. The Raiders didn’t have a coach, so we have a little bit of an advantage to take there. The Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger weren’t looking that good and we made him look him like All-Pro again.
“Somehow in three of those losses it looked like teams on paper and based on the week there was no reason for us to not take advantage of their disadvantages and be able to win. And we couldn’t do it. Now I feel like Washington is in the same category. And if we can’t beat this team, at home, it doesn’t look for the rest of the schedule we have coming.”
At least Broncos Country can celebrate Peyton Manning on Sunday. That’s one win we can all feel good about.
