Default Denver Broncos' frustrations boil over after loss to cheaters

DENVER -- Their bid for another epic victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, and possibly their chance to defend a Super Bowl championship, ended with a whimper Sunday afternoon in front of 76,893 chilled and dejected fans at Sports Authority Field. Then, immediately following a 16-3 feat to their formidable AFC rivals, the Broncos' frustrations boiled over, as a seemingly ho-hum attempt at postgame unity began and ended with a bang.

When the beaten Broncos spilled into the locker room, before the door was opened to reporters and other outsiders, coach Gary Kubiak gathered his players and asked if anyone wanted to address the team. Veteran left tackle Russell Okung, who signed with the Broncos last March, stepped forward to speak, and strong safety T.J. Ward strongly objected. According to several witnesses, that set off a spirited shouting match between the team's defensive backs and offensive linemen -- one which Kubiak had to diffuse before it turned ugly.

"Pretty much your classic offense vs. defense divide," as one Denver player described it.

Defense has done everything you can ask them to do. The inept offense is pissing them off and rightfully so

Oh the missed opportunities...

Why is DT a team captain?? Team Captains should be the guys dragging you to victory.

Damn. Okung got up to speak to the team and TJ ward told him to sit his ass down.

The locker room was bound to break eventually. To the defense the offense is like a dead conjoined twin they have to drag around every week.

Until I see some real offensive coaching out there, I reserve judgment on the matter.

DT said winning the Super Bowl was "a one-year thing." I love honesty but damn. How is he captain? That's admitting you suck, not making guys better.

read the entire article. honestly, seems all about nothing - at least nothing none of us couldn't imagine goes on behind closed doors.

an interesting tell is DT's comments about the O approach before the season and now. he cannot throw Gary under the bus, or any one of our 7 OCs, but there is a sense of the same problem - the offensive approach. besides the OL being the first and foremost physical issue, this bull O philosophy is wasting this team and the players know it.

PFM ain't walking back through that door Gary, so change or move over.

I'd rather have a captain tell it like it is than one trying to mask **** with V.I.Poo.



Webster said it right.

Our offensive line is pure ****, our QB is essentially Alex Smith Jr and our supposedly brilliant offensive minded coach is a dumb ass.
DT and Sanders are the best WR duo in the NFL and our coach cannot find ways to have them make big plays.

The last 3 weeks have been inexcusable on the offensive side of the ball. Elway should have done something, or should do something now. In 2012, on Dec 10, the Ravens fired OC Cam Cameron and hired Jim Caldwell because they weren't happy with the way their offense was going. They went on to win the Super Bowl.

Sounds like a jab at the play calling and pussiness of Kubiac at the end of the first half. He's losing the locker room.

The Patriots ripped out the Broncos heart and stomped on it.

Big brother is back slapping around his weaker sibling, order was restored and all is good in the world.

Having the absolute opposite of a dynamic passing scheme, there is literally no way for them to maximize DT and Sanders without a running game. Kubiak's complete and total lack of flexibility, and his offense's laughable simplicity and predictability are so glaring it hurts.

There are some good quotes in that article. Team is on the verge of civil war. Talib, Ward, Harris, Webster... they hate the offense lol.

What's funny is people use that Ravens team as one that faltered in the regular season like if they can do it the 2016 Broncos can too.

Totally ignoring the fact something was done. OC fired.

In fairness, that's not really what he said. He was asked if winning with great defense and no offense is sustainable. To that, he said, "That was a one-year thing."

In other words, he's saying that unless the offense gets their crap together, they aren't going anywhere. To which I say, "Duh!"

The slot is so bad DT has to run those routes. Taking YAC right off the field in those types of routes. Kubiak can't even get the right personnel on the field.
