I'm fed up with these prima donnas that get a big contract and then loose the desire and edge of their game coasting along on the fame of the plateau they have reached. Happen's every time. A fall off in production after they land the big multi year contract. Happened with DT. I would think, if anything landing the contract should put more pressure on you to live up to it. I think Von played a good game against the Chargers even though he didn't get a sack. He stopped a lot of running plays and pressured Rivers.
Another point is that the league has figured out how to play Miller. They know his moves and double team him frequently and they game plan with quick release plays and lots of passes out to the flat as well as screens.
Another scenario is Chris Harris who has slacked off his play and his intensity. There really isn't much loyalty either way today. Not by management and now not by the players either. Many great players get a year or two from their peak and get traded to make cap space. That's one of the problems with the current system. It moves players around a lot and yes they are kind of like pawns but they also have agents. I would love to see more team loyalty to and from the good players but I guess thats the game nowadays.
Ultimately it's the desire, chemistry and intensity that gets a team to the playoffs and the SB. All the teams are good. It's the team (coaches and players) that want it more, that are hungry that will give the extra effort it needs to take it deep into the playoffs.
Flacco should have something to prove. And he leads the team. I have seen far too many heads bowed down and slow walking back to the huddle, especially in the second half. I would like to see more energy and desire to win. Like Johnson and Lindsay, Freeman and Jackson. A team has to click on all cylinders with everyone.
So I suggest Miller stop reading the headlines and Harris stop pouting and play for the team, and Flacco take an energy drink at halftime.
CHJ just held Keenan Allen to like 18 yards lol stop it, takes time to mold all the changes the broncos have undergone . Our D is top5 against the pass, The edge is coming alive even with injuries , GARRET BOLES HAS IMPROVED , Flacco - Sutton looking better each week, Scangarello cooking new shit up each week , Patience.
I think there is another reason he us not playing up to par. I am a Broncos fan to the bone. I hate it that we have taken the Browns place on the bottom of the teams, but I can see a way out
Mr. Miller may be mentally in the dumps because for the past year or so he has carried this team on his shoulders. He may be tired of the way most of the players are playing. I say that Fangio needs to make each and every player responsible for their play. This is the managers job, not a player. I say fine the players for their poor play. Most workers in the job market would get fired for their poor performance, so why not make all players responsible for their actions.
I would never have tolerated an employees actions like pro players have been acting the last few years. Our team needs to get their heads out of you know where or the team will continue to fail. On the flip side, management needs to try some positive reinforcment fir jobs well done.
There needs to be more hands on in regards to the training and teaching of the young newcomers or they will end up like all the rest of the team. Rules need to be made per team, and follow thru is a must. Crack the whip on the players Fangio and get the team up to par and beyond.
guess we can see who did not watch the game but claims he did.
