Von Miller: Broncos aren’t a good football team right now

For much of the Broncos’ four-game losing streak, the focus has been on their offensive shortcomings but the defense can’t avoid criticism after Sunday’s 51-23 loss to the Eagles.

Linebacker Von Miller said the unit “pissed the bed” while allowing 419 yards to an Eagles team that pretty much closed up shop after three quarters of work. That put them right in line with the rest of the team, although Miller tried to find a silver lining to the struggles.

“We are where we are right now,” Miller said, via ESPN.com. “Right now, [Sunday] … we’re not a good football team. We still have time. We still have time to be great. We’re not a great football team right now, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a great football team within us. But [Sunday], we’re not a good football team, offensively, defensively, special teams, whatever. We’re just not good right now.”

If there’s a great football team within the Broncos, it has stayed as well hidden as the entrance to Shangri-La this season. With the Patriots visiting next Sunday, it would be a really good time to find it and throw it on the field because a 3-6 record would leave little time for such a team to salvage what’s been an increasingly disappointing season for the Broncos.

  1. Just keep running up field trying to get a sack while RB’s are running by you, Von.

    Don’t worry, it’s all about you.

  2. In the meantime, the Chiefs have fallen back to earth and the Raiders have upgraded from inept to barely mediocre. The race for the AFC West is still alive – I like the Chargers to take it at the wire.

    He’s been doing that his entire career. Most overrated player since CLay Matthews at that position.

  4. VJ needs to go! “We had a great week of practice….”

    He is obviously not a leader of men, can’t coach, game plan, make in game adjustments and worst of all his players quit on him after 8 games!

  5. He’s been doing that his entire career. Most overrated player since CLay Matthews at that position.
    Pats licking their chops for Sunday Night.

    Gronk is the most overrated player at his position

    Brock beat the pats in 2015

    He played 1 good game vs NE’s B Squad in the 2015 title game and Denver barely won because of a missed PAT by Gostkowski.

    Imagine if Marcus Cannon didn’t have an ankle injury, too? He would have done jack squat.

    Most overrated defensive player since Clay Matthews’s hype years back.

    Umm, Brock did not do anything personally. NE domminated the game and then Goodell made a phone call for the refs to start making creepy calls to get Denver back in it, with phantom penalties everywhere against NE. Denver barely won, but Goodell was hellbent on getting Gomer homefield, and he showed he would do anything to accomplish that.

    Denver has not beaten a good Pats team fairly in years.

    NE has either either dominated or won in comeback fashion.

  8. Von Miller has played in 8 games against the Patriots in his career. Denver won 2 of those 8 games. That’s the same winning percentage the Dolphins have against the Patriots since 2011 (.250). We all know the Dolphins haven’t owned anyone since 2011 (or the last 45 years for that matter).

  9. I agree no discipline. And that does fall on the coach. Too many penalties!
    I would like to see some kind of action from the coaches to show we don’t feel like it’s business as usual. Because it should not be! And why not give Kelly a shot we have nothing to loose right now.
