Baltimore’s always been a tough place to play for the Broncos going back to even my days when they were the Colts. Maybe it’s a curse because John Elway snubbed them. Yeah, that’s it. Let’s blame it on Elway. It’s a “CURSE” and there’s no way around it so let’s use that as our excuse. It has a lot of mystery an drama like the newspaper and gossip rags cling to. “THE CURSE.”
Okay, enough of that. It was kinda funny though. You have to have a sense of humor in the NFL, whether you’re a fan or a player, because when you’re a struggling team these types of games will happen and often more than once during a season.
I’ve seen it since pee-wee football and even with our young guys playing 11-year-old tackle football. It’s also a character builder. It’s life. Somebody has to lose every week. I’ve been on both ends of these types of games when you’re beat bad or totally blown out. Guess what, that’s life. You win some, you lose some, but you learn from every experience and get back up to fight again. That’s what makes a winner. Winners never quit and quitters never win. I know you’ve all heard that your entire life and maybe you never really slowed down long enough or really thought about what it means. Well after a game like that in Baltimore, re-read it. Makes a lot of sense. You get up, shake it off, go back to the drawing board and get after it or you’re a quitter. Quitters don’t make it to the NFL. If they sneak in, they get filtered out pretty quick. I promise. Your teammate can smell it a mile away
This team is not a quitter but needs some time to get it’s game together. No need to talk about T.O.P. or O-line or the D-line or special teams and point fingers and play the “blame game”. This is a young team and relatively inexperienced playing together with each other. Time on the field is the only thing that sure is this. Just like catching a lot of fish, time on the water…experience, playing together as a team, I could go on and on but no need with you guys because you know the drill. You see what I see. Maybe in a different context, but very similar.
Frustrating? Yeah, but so is life sometimes and you keep swinging, right? …Or maybe it is a CURSE? ) hee, hee.
BE A WINNER!
