Five Lessons from the Broncos Game
Red Zone Struggles Still Exist– The Bolts converted on their final two red zone appearances of the game as
“Unfortunately, offensively, early on there we weren’t able to get touchdowns. We had three field goal attempts there. But against a good team like this you have to finish drives with touchdowns in the red area. That was something we did not do a good job of early in the game… You look at the three opportunities, and you get six points. They scored 28. If you score three touchdowns, that’s 21. As you go along, that’s critical. You’ve got to finish for touchdowns. But there are certain situations where you wish you could go back.”
"We’re going to do what we think is best. It’s the same thing we said last week. We’re going to do whatever we think is best as the game goes along. We’re going to make changes on offense. We’re going to make changes on defense. We’re going to make changes on the kicking game. And the coaches have a decision to make as we go along and that’s what we’re going to do.
“We’ve seen that we can beat them. We just can’t start the way we started. We’ve got to start better than that because it’s hard to come back and beat a good team like that. If we played like we played in the second half the whole game, it’s a whole different game.”
“There are going to be some mistakes. At the end there was too much pressure a couple of times with those guys coming in. But we’ll watch the film, evaluate it and move on from there.”
“We’ve got seven games left. The whole season is right there in front of us. If you guys on the outside think the season is done then don’t come talk to me because we still have everything there… We go against a team like that and to fight, in my mind, it gives me some confidence of what we can become. I’m definitely looking forward to our next matchup with them.”
