Default Dumervil: "I'm sorry....All the things you did individually,it doesn’t matter.”

http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/...fans-im-sorry/

Dumervil to fans: I’m sorry



There were plenty of disgusted and disappointed players filling up garbarge bags and carrying out game jerseys in the Broncos locker room Monday morning, but no one seemed to be more affected at the Broncos collapse that kept them out of the playoffs than star pass rusher Elvis Dumervil.

Dumervil couldn’t find a way to explain what happened to the Broncos in their final 10 games, when they went 2-8 to finish 8-8 for the second straight year. But he did know that Sunday’s 44-24 loss to Kansas City wasn’t pretty.

“It was a total embarrassment,” Dumervil said. “I’m sorry the fans had to come out and see something like that.”

Dumervil finished as the NFL’s regular season sack champion, with 17 — a new franchise record. It provided Dumervil with little consolation Monday, though.

“We did a lot good things this year, a lot of guys played with effort, a lot of guys did agood job, a lot of schemes that I thought we were good in. But when it came down to when we needed it, we just didn’t get it done as a team,” Dumervil said. “That’s just the hard facts about it. We can’t undermine the things we did well, but at the end of the day, either ryou get the job done or you don’t. All the things you did individually, or where we were ranked, it doesn’t matter.”

Hope he stays long term... PS, he's a Shanny boy that McD didn't hesitate to play.

Dumervil is a guy to keep that's for sure. I remember how he disappeared(who didn't?) under Shanahan's DC in Slowik last season.

No excuse not to lock up this guy with the talent and attitude like that. IMO, letting him go will be inexcusable.

He'll be signed long term with no Marshall deal to worry about, no question about it.

He's a proven passrusher with multiple double digit sack seasons. Lock him up. The fact he is a good character guy is a bonus.

I apologize to Doom for thinking he would never be a major contributor. As much as I hated Slowik I should have known.

Doom is a guy we can all agree on.

Look forward to watching us get him some more help next season.

I was very surprised (pleasantly) how well Doom did in his move to OLB. Lock him up McXanders.

Eff Marshall, sheff, Orton etc. We NEED to keep Doom, but also get some more playmakers in the front 7 to take pressure off him. 17 sacks in his first year at a new position? Lock him up.

Undoubtedly, the man needs to get paid.
I hope Mayor McCheese can see that.

Nothing against Doom but I think just about any player is going to give that same exact response. Every player understands football is a team sport and nobody is going to beat another team by themselves. I like how Doom progressed this year but these comments by him are the same I would expect from nearly everybody on the team.

How many teams have you seen dishing out extensions lately to players who's contracts were expiring. It's a wait and see game at present to see who makes the first plunge with no cap on the horizon.

At this point there's no need to panic with Dumervil because he wont hit the open market.

I fully agree this team has needed a pass rush for LONG TIME letting it go would be a huge mistake not to mention having another defensive leader leading by example.

As are many starters. People need to drop the "McD's going to get rid of all the Shanahan players" nonsense. He's not looking to get rid of Shahanan players, he's looking to get rid of players who don't want to be there, who don't fit the system, or who just aren't very good.

Imagine how good Doom would be if he had an even halfway decent threat lining up opposite him. Look at pitts and how Woodley and Harrison feed off each other. Hopefully we sign him to a long term contract and get someone on the other side of him so that he doesn't get constantly double teamed or held (I mean how many times has doom been held this season without it ever getting called....).
