The team is currently 0-4 and looking nowhere like a team that is going to contend this season for anything other than a high draft pick.
Despite the winless record, John Elway has high hopes for the current team. He has such high hopes that he thinks the team is actually on the rise.
Via The Denver Channel:
“Well I think we’re on the rise. I think when you look at it, defensively, we’ve got to play better. But, offensively, I think we’ve continued to make strides, and gotten better each week, which I am excited about,” Elway said when asked if the current team is better than the one that faced the Chargers last year on the road. “Defensively, anytime you lose a player like Bradley we are going to have to have some people step up and play better. And it puts more pressure on people on the defensive side, as well as offensively. We’ve got to do a better job and be more perfect — as far as when we are on the field — of trying to get points every time we are out there. Everything included, as far as the situation we are in, you know a lot of times it’s easier to identify problems. It’s tougher to fix them. We’ve got to figure out the tough part.”
That’s a nice attitude to have, but his comments are not going to fool the fan base. This is a bad team that is going nowhere fast.
