Ok- so last night's game SUCKED!
But do not panic, Bronco Nation!
Here are 3 positive takeaways from last night's debacle that should help brighten your mood:
If you turn the ball over 4 times in a quarter and still have a chance to win the game…and end up losing by less than a touchdown that says something about your team. The score was only 10-0 at the end of 1st Quarter—the Broncos defense is better than most people think. Way better. That's a positive.
2. Demarius Thomas 8 rec- 78 yards and a touchdown- averaging almost 10 yards p catch…that touchdown pass in the corner of the endzone? Come on….you can’t defend that any better. That was CRAZY athletic skills! And that jump ball pass he pulled down in the 3rd quarter? And this while the defense KNOWS you're going to pass the ball?? DT is a monster and best of all, he's got heart and guts. As last night proved.
3. In looking back on this season, this will be the game that reminded the NFL that needed to get off their wallets and bring back the regular refs. Last night was a officiating disaster. Phantom penalties..missed calls…..the refs completely lost control of the game in the first 15 minutes. If this is Cleveland/Cincy- no one cares. If it's the Raiders v. Dolphins, no one cares. But this is a Monday Night matchup of two marquee teams. Last night was a debacle for the NFL. Mark my words- this will, either directly or indirectly, lend some urgency to the matter of bringing the regular refs back.
There you go.
A positive spin on a crappy game.
You're welcome. Go Broncos!
