Well, I guess the big news in Denver is how well the Rockies have been playing, and they’re in the World Series. The Broncos are behind them 100 percent, as I said in earlier weeks. It kind of reminds me of my days in college where we always had a really great basketball team and our football team was really good also. It was a good, friendly competition and we competed against them and rooted for them at the same time. It was just fun. Denver is a tight-knit community in the same sense and it kind of gives me that same feeling, where we can’t wait to support them and we hope they feel the same way about us. We definitely need to raise our play as we’ve been talking about around here for a couple weeks to meet the Rockies’ production right now. But that doesn’t change how we feel about the way they’ve been playing. We’re really excited and impressed with them and hope they can bring a championship to Denver, then hope that it’s contagious also.
The bye week was great, just to get away, get out of Denver for a bit to see some people who are important to me and spend some time away from football, which sometimes is the best thing, especially when things aren’t going so well. It helps you get things into perspective and come back and really want to practice. I think that was one of the nice things about the bye week is when you get here, you really want to practice and you really want to be with the guys, especially after you have a bad taste in your mouth like we have had from the last couple weeks. It’s just so important for us to get out there and try to get everything in line. When we’re practicing, there’s an attention to detail that we haven’t had before, or had since I’ve been here, to be honest. There’s no room for any mistakes, whereas in years past, it’s understood that we’re not perfect and there are going to be some mistakes throughout a practice. We work through the mistakes and then correct them on film. But now, if there’s a mistake on a play, we’ll repeat it immediately and make sure everything’s cleared up, right on the spot, on both sides of the ball. There’s really no room for error.
