Learning From a Loss

Posted Oct 24, 2013

For the first time in more than a calendar year, the Broncos are bouncing back from a regular season loss.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The last time the Broncos lost a regular-season game, America was in the middle of a presidential campaign, Jay-Z was opening an arena in Brooklyn with an eight-concert series and the player who now has second-most special teams touchdowns in Broncos history – Trindon Holliday – wasn’t even a Bronco.

That was Oct. 7, 2012.

Now, 17 wins later the Broncos are faced with something they haven’t had to do in a while – respond to a loss.

“(The page) has already been turned,” cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said Wednesday. “We talked about what we did wrong. Everybody admitted their mistakes—figured out what we can do better and try to eliminate doing those same mistakes over again. We just set the reset button and we’re going to start another streak. It’s time for another one.”

Quarterback Peyton Manning echoed the thought of hitting the reset button because the “Redskins don’t care what happened” against the Colts.

Manning also said he didn’t know if a loss had the ability to refocus a team, but it does provide an opportunity to learn.

“We just have to be more consistent,” Manning said. “We did some good things at certain time but just weren’t as consistent as we needed to be and that’s what you have to do in order to win football games, especially on the road. I thought the mistakes that we made on offense were correctable, which is a good thing. But we have to do it.

“We talk about it in meetings and try to correct in practice but you have to correct it on the playing field on Sunday and hopefully we can get that done.”

In Indianapolis, the Broncos committed the second-most penalties they had all season, punted a season-high seven times and fumbled a season-high four times.

While Head Coach John Fox said that a loss doesn’t necessary provide more learning opportunities than a win does – those are the kind of mistakes the Broncos want to eliminate this week.

“I’m a believer in you get better every week,” Head Coach John Fox said Monday. "Hopefully, you’re learning all the time, regardless of game outcomes. Not too many teams go through these seasons unscathed. I think it’s only been done once in 35 years. That’s why it’s hard to repeat, that’s why it’s a pretty competitive game. I expect us to learn just like all mistakes – you admit them. You’ve got to fix them and do your best not to let them happen again.”
