The Denver Broncos have been doing one thing at a high level over the last few years. Losing. Yep, some of you may not want to hear that, but it is just the truth, and this year is the same thing. One player is tired and fed up with the recent trend.
This season was supposed to be different. In the last few years, the narrative was that the Broncos needed two things to be a complete team. They needed the franchise quarterback and a better head coach.
They got what they thought was both. Obviously, it isn’t.
It can be tough on players losing every year, I’d imagine.
“We want to win for coach, we want to win for ourselves,” Dre’Mont Jones said after the loss. “I mean I have been here for four seasons, losing has been a trend, and I’m pretty sick and tired of it. It’s hard to go home and say well ‘At least I get paid,’ but I don’t care about that.
“I want to win so bad that it hurts. Coming from a program like Ohio State, just winning so much, and then you come here and you lose these little games. You lose in overtime, you lose by three points, you lose by one point. At some point it just gets tiring. I do have a great group of guys that I’m with that can pick my head up when I’m down.”
Jones has been here through the dark days, and now the even darker days. I don’t blame him for saying what he said after the game, because I’d be upset too.
If I was on the defense, I’d really be upset. They have been at least average unit on that side of the ball the last four years. Now, they are amazing, but the offense won’t pull their weight, I’d be pissed.
Jones has every right to be upset.
