The Denver Broncos are reeling in a big way, sitting at 3-9 while fans attempt to focus on the future and find bright spots on a team dealing with an eight-game losing streak. While it’s been pretty much all negative surrounding the Broncos as of late, it seems that the mindset of head coach Vance Joseph hasn’t changed.
As he told ESPN’s Jeff Legwold, no one on the Broncos has given up, and he doesn’t want his team to “just survive this next month.”
“We don’t want to just survive this next month,” Joseph said. “We want to push forward, keep working, keep studying, keep pushing details. And trying to win football games, we don’t want guys just showing up to work and just checking boxes.”
“I don’t believe that at all,” Joseph said. “If you watch our football games, I always watch last five to 10 plays, I show the guys those plays, I show the guys flying around, that’s proof that guys are still playing to win. … The guys we put on the field are trying to win football games and no one has given up.”
Obviously, it goes without saying that Broncos fans probably won’t agree with this currently. In the midst of this brutal losing streak, something has to change. The Broncos aren’t going to make the playoffs, but they could at least finish the season strong and give some younger players the opportunity to showcase their talents.
