Broncos Postgame Quotes

Denver Broncos players comment on their 41-7 loss to the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Monday, October 20, 2008.

Jamie Winborn, Linebacker
(On the game)
"We got beat in all phases of the ball game tonight. They were more physical, defense, offense and special teams. We just got beat up out there."

(On what happened)
"As a team we just did not do good tonight. It's hard to pinpoint one thing. We just didn't do anything good tonight."

Dre Bly, Cornerback(On the game)
"In front of the nation, we didn't show up tonight. It's embarrassing, but it's a good week to have a loss like that. We can regroup and some guys can heal. It will give us a chance to regroup and try and fix some things that we are having problems with."

(On turnovers)
"Whenever you turn the ball over it's going to be bad. The fact that we were able to hold them to field goals was a good thing. They're a good ball team and they pride themselves on making turnovers and they were able to make some plays. We weren't able to rebound from that. Any time you give up turnovers and don't force any on defense, it's going to be tough to win."

(On efficiency of the Patriots' offense)
"They got it going early with the running game. They were able to find some creases in the defense and he got going early. Giving them the short field also helped them. We still had a chance even after turning the ball over early, we just couldn't fight back."

D.J. Williams, Linebacker
(On what went wrong)
"We just got physically beat up. Both sides of the ball, offense, defense, special teams, they just beat us. They just beat us man to man. They just over-powered us. There is nothing you can say about it. We had a good pass rush today, but we have to learn from our mistakes."

Ebenezer Ekuban, Defensive End
(On what went wrong)
"We lost, that is what happened. We got our butts handed to us. Give credit to them. They just made plays. Give credit to them. The score was 41-7, there are no silver linings."

Daniel Graham, Tight End
(On the Broncos)
"It was a disappointing loss for us. They outplayed us from the first snap of the game. We are stopping ourselves with turnovers. We have to do a much better job if we want to win and compete. If we turn the ball over like we did these last few games teams are going to start stripping the ball from us. You can talk about it all you want but you have to come out and show it on Sunday."

(On coming back to Foxborough)
"It was a different feeling, coming in here to the visitor's locker room. I am glad to be here in Denver. I am not worried about the fans. I am here with my team and it is us against the world up here."

Patrick Ramsey, Quarterback
(On the injury to Jay Cutler)
"I was trying to see if they wanted me to go in. I kind of walked on the field and they said get off. I think after the interception, Jay hit his hand again and had to come out for a bit. I don't know how bad it is and I would not tell you if I did. He threw the ball pretty effectively after that."

*(On the sloppy play)
*"I don't think I have been through one like that. We can't feel sorry for ourselves. We will move on, and learn from it."

Andre Hall, Running back
(On the fumbles)
"I just didn't protect the ball properly. I was just carrying it with one hand. It was embarrassing; I just didn't have a good grip on the ball. After the first one you know you have to bounce back and be stronger. So I was really trying to focus on protecting the ball. When I saw a nice little hole for me to run through. As soon as I hit my speed burst, and cut back, one of the guys got a good grip on it and snatched it out."

(On the turnovers)
"We had five turnovers tonight, and the coach stressed the point that we can't have turnovers. I gave up two myself"

(On fixing the turnover situation)
"Me personally I have to go through more drills. I have to focus on holding the ball. I really never had a problem turning the ball over before. Tonight was probably my first night in years that I turned the ball over. I have to get better."

Champ Bailey, Cornerback
(On the game)
"We did so much to try and get them off the field. It just stinks how we played. Everybody in this room has to look at himself and try and get better individually."

(On the bye week and what the team needs to improve)
"We need it this week. It is better timing for me, because I hurt myself. I think all of us need to look back and reflect on these last seven games and try and figure out a way to get better. There is no doubt about that. We just need to play better and play harder. We need to get a better attitude because our attitude stinks out there. I feel like as a leader on this team I am going to tell you when you are doing good and when your doing bad, that's just the way I am."

(On the team's sense of urgency)
"It is funny when I am out there out on the field, I can't see it but standing on the sidelines you can see that the sense of urgency was not there tonight. It is just people not filling the gaps the way they are supposed to. You make a mistake trying to find one thing. It is a lot of things and we know that. We just have to get better in every area of the game."

Michael Pittman, Running Back
(On the game)
"We were prepared as a team, we just did not go there and execute the way we know we should have. The coach has been harping on turnovers and he is absolutely right. You can't play a good Patriots team in their stadium and have turnovers and expect to win. I am not pointing a finger at anybody on this team. As a team we need to get better in every area."
