Like we said a few weeks ago, turnovers in this league will kill you. K.C. proved that against us and so did the Jags. To open the paper today was like reading about a 1-5 team, wow. Anything to sell a newspaper.
Simple math: turnovers = losses, that simple. We’ve all heard it all the way back to little league….in every sport….not just football….it’s that simple.
Offense was off but Pittman ran well. We had a chance to stay in the game in the fourth quarter and we didn’t with three plays and out on offense. Three turnovers and a 4th-and-1 are tough for any team to rebound from and we still had a shot, so that’s what I mean by, we still had a shot late in the game.
Young team, getting used to each other and with three big weapons on the sidelines, Royal, Scheffler, Young. No excuses though, it’s a long season and Monday Night Football coming next week will be fun.
Speaking of that, those are tough games to play. When I say that I mean, you have to sit around all day on the East Coast to play a night game. The waiting around is a pain in the tail. Getting up for Monday night games is the only saving grace. Then by the time the games over and you get back to Denver, it makes for a short week typically, but we’ll have a bye week– so that’s good.
Any of you remember the Monday night game against Green Bay, back in 1984? The blizzard game…that’s what comes to mind everytime I see the Monday Night Football commercials. I think I have issues. )
