    Shocked and disgusted - It's simply unacceptable Broncos

    Okay, I have been a Broncos fan my whole life as many you have as well. From first memory of football which was around 5 years of age, it was eat, sleep and drink Broncos football, which is now about 41 years of support.

    In that time I have never been as shocked and disappointed as I was last night. I mean it was simply unwatchable. At no time did the team have any juice or show any modicum of passion that would switch the outcome.

    The defense was simply god awful. The offense was putrid. Special teams a freaking disaster.

    Out played, out coached, out executed, out everything in every single phase of the game. Does this team actually have a pulse????? I know I do and to be honest, I wanted to destroy stuff last night it was so frustrating to watch.

    The absolutely ineptitude to change the lack of a freaking heartbeat in that building is unacceptable. Never in my time have I been this disappointed in the team or believe this little that it will ever change.
    Wanting to win does not make you a winner. Refusing to fail does.

    I can understand the sentiment.

    It was a horrible game and horrible effort for most of the game.

    It completely sucked! I was so bummed. I live in Houston and saw how hard the Texans fought against the Saints.
    Then came the Bronco game... I went to bed at the end of the third. Sucked.

    The team played hard for the most part, our vaunted pass rushers should be ashamed to cash their paychecks this week though...

    Why do we hate the end zone?

    Because of the stupid west coast offense scheme we run. We may have the worst possible personnel for it.

    Horrible game. You would think a team playing their 1st game for a new head coach against a rival division opponent would come out with some energy and fire. Nope. Not this team. Yiadom is a complete joke. The TE had his way again against our "d". Offense was non existent. Embarrassing. If that's the effort we have, it's gonna be a long year. Given our schedule, could be another 5-11, 6-10 year. Oh, and we allowed Derek Carr, DEREK CARR to go 22-26. Awesome

    I think people's expectations were too high. Honestly, aside from our front defense doing nothing all game and getting no push, nothing surprised me about last night. Poor red zone offense, awful defensive backfield, penalty after penalty after penalty, Fant looking like he's never been on a football field before. I was expecting all of this.

    Flacco honestly played pretty good despite running for life all night, but Miller and Chubb being absent all night is just unacceptable.

    Chargers and KC going to molly whop us bad this season, and oh look what a shocker, after 1 week we are already at the bottom of the division.

    New coaches, new QB, new scheme on def. and off. and 1st game in the black hole. Broncos have a lot of young players as well and it showed last night. They need a few games to get in synch.

    This is football, where teams don't have the luxury of taking a few games to get in sync. They have 16 games to get the job done, and when you lose to teams you should have beat, it puts you in a bad situation. Losing a conference game is bad enough but losing a division game is just the worst.

    This! What I saw was not horrible. For one thing, I think the AB fiasco got the Raiders angry and pumped up to win. They were playing harder than the Broncos, and I think that was the reason.

    You don't think playing harder than us isn't a problem? I think that's one of the worst things that's hurt this team over the last couple of years. How many defensive plays did we make last night when people were fired up? I don't remember many. How many hard hits? How many exotic blitzes from a so called defensive mastermind? How many creative plays offensively, besides that bogus Star Wars formation screen to Freeman that he completely botched. Coaching was sub par at best. How many crossing routes did we run? On a crucial 3rd down, with one WR on the field, we put our weakest corner on one one while Chris Harris is on the other catching butterflies. So much bad football on opening night from a team that should've been fired up and ready to make a statement game.

    The thing I was most annoyed at was the lack of energy. This is week 1, on the road, Monday Night Football, against a division rival with a new coaching staff, and we came out flat. From the start the Raiders just out enthused the Broncos, they wanted it more. I will say, as much as I think we did take steps in the right direction this past off-season, the high expectations of this rookie and inexperienced coaching staff need to be tempered.

    I also think once again, this fan base really overrates the talent we have here, especially on defense. Josey Jewell is not a starting calibar linebacker in the NFL right now, Justin Simmons is maybe the most overrated player on the roster, and despite people claiming Von Miller gets double and triple teamed every play, which is incorrect, he goes missing for long stretches of games too often. This offensive line is going to be a struggle again as well. Ronald Leary was horrible, the often injured right tackle we overpaid is injured, again, and the rest of the bunch weren't anything else to cheer about. I think we could be a 10-6 team in a dream scenario, but I could also see us being 3-13. It's going to be interesting to see how they respond next week.

    Yeah, this Christmas I'm going to ask Santa for a Broncos team that can't be beat. I'm sure Santa will say, no such thing. Your over reaction is got me wondering, do you really think the Broncos should be at the top of the list year after year. More then they have been over the last 8 years. Even good luck has bad luck sometimes. The Broncos will come out fired up against da bears and play to their potential. They will improve every game as they get more fine tuned.

    Where does this optimism come from? This February will be four years since SB50, and the Broncos will be watching it from their TVs like the rest of us. That's not defeatism... it's realism based on their play last night, and the previous three seasons. Sure... it's possible they get their act together. And I HOPE they do! But I'm a believer when I SEE THE CHANGE. Not before. I hope for the Broncos all day long. But I don't have faith or bet on them to win. We DID have some teams that you could bet on to at least be in the games, and win many of them. That ended after the Manning era (and very nearly ended during his era). What have you done for me lately is realistic in sports. NE and KC fans can have faith and still depend on their teams not to let themselves and their fans down (though I'm far from anointing KC AFC champs yet). But that's because there are things going on there to give them that confidence. Right now, we don't even have a glimmer of that confidence. You've got to actually win games (and not win them totally ugly) to generate that kind of confidence. An object in motion tends to stay in motion, while an object at rest tends to stay at rest. If we've been in any kind of motion at all in several years... it's been backwards. I'm still hopeful that we don't have VJ2 in our new coach. But I saw nothing to indicate that we don't last night.
