Default Broncos Frustration Simmers in Locker-Room Silence

NASHVILLE, Tenn. There was a long cooling-off period. Coach John Fox started and finished his postgame news conference.

The visiting locker room doors finally opened, and Broncos middle linebacker Joe Mays was sitting in front of his locker, his sweat-soaked, grass- stained jersey and pants covering his fully padded, tired body. Across the room, defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley​ sat in the same position.

Between them was silence. The Broncos led halfway through the fourth quarter but wound up losing to the Tennessee Titans 17-14. No one talked when the doors opened. Someone tossed a piece of ankle tape on the carpeted floor. It sounded like a thud.

There are losses and there are losses when a team is nearly speechless.

"Nobody in this room deserved this," Broncos running back Willis McGahee​ said.

The Broncos almost prevailed, though they were badly outmanned because of injuries. Their offense was missing Eddie Royal​, Knowshon Moreno​ and Julius Thomas. Their three best defensive players Elvis Dumervil​, Champ Bailey​ and D.J. Williams again didn't play. Yet the patched-up Denver D held Tennessee running backs Chris Johnson and Javon Ringer​ to a combined 4 yards on 14 carries through three quarters.

Matt Hasselbeck​, the veteran quarterback in his first year with the Titans, finally solved the Broncos' defense in the fourth quarter.

Afterward, the Broncos' locker room was the quietest it's been in years. It's never exactly reverberating with boom-box music after any defeat. But based on the utter silence in the locker room a good 25 minutes after the final gun Sunday, this setback was more difficult than others.

"It's real frustrating, and it needs to be real frustrating," veteran safety Brian Dawkins said.

"I wouldn't read too much into how quiet it is as a sign of anything other than as a sign that we're a group of true competitors," weakside linebacker Wesley Woodyard​ said. ". . . The quiet you're hearing says we all care about our jobs, and we care about winning."

"It was disappointing, but we've got to bounce back," said Broncos center J.D. Walton. "We've got another road game, and we have to approach it as a business trip, again."

Sorry Willis, you DID deserve it. All of you. Now sack up. I've never seen such a collection of 53 pussies menstruating together in silence in my life. Stay shut up and try playing football.

Dawkins is the only one with a perspective I can agree with.

Woodyard says it was silent because they're a true group of competitors? You just got the **** kicked out of you by a bad football team despite a buttload of penalties helping you out.

And JD, you can continue approaching these as a business trip, but start looking at them as business trips that you could lose your effing job on, because quite frankly, you should.

Maybe their unquestioned leader could spring for some tampons. He's probably going to make 3-4.5 million per win this year.

He should have taken whatever Miami had offered him.

Not so much a Tebow thread. More like a "Kyle Orton sucks get him the **** out of the starting QB position for the Broncos" thread!

Dude, how many more games are we going to have to watch of a Kyle Orton-led offense putting up under 17 points and failing epically in key moments of games before some realize that there's a problem with this team? Seriously...how many more do you need to see? Another season? Two?

Why in the world would he have done that? Nobody is ever going to pay him that kind of money again. He knew it. His agent knew it. Probably the smartest thing he has ever done.

You know what else I would really like to see?

A respect for conserving time outs in close effing football games.

That would be swell.

When someone states that we are losing because players like Knowshon and JT are missing, then turn and state D.J. Williams is one of our 3 best defensive players makes this alot easier to take.

If Knowshon and DJ are reasons we are losing, this team is alot worse off than even I thought.

I generally agree with your point but is Tennessee "bad"? They looked pretty good against Baltimore.

I find it funny that people are concerned about losing the locker room in the Orton debate. What, losing from horrible devisions and refusing to use your talent is going to keep everyone happy? The locker room being more silent than it normally us after losses tells you that Fox has the locker?...

It's not as bad as it looks, we should get some O weapons back soon and out 3 D probowlers. I think we get better. I must admit though it was stupid not to put tebow in with 1st and Goal at the 2, I don't think we do that again.
