Notebook: Learning from the Loss

Posted Nov 2, 2011

Tim Tebow is learning from last Sunday's loss, the Broncos are hoping for a different outcome vs. the Raiders and Head Coach John Fox talks injuries.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Three days after Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Detroit Lions, Tim Tebow is still disappointed.

But he's not dwelling on the loss -- he's learning from it.

"I’ll just try to get better from that game and improve and just continue to get better as a football player," Tebow said Wednesday. "Each time just learning something or seeing something and taking that and putting it in the memory bank and understanding when I see that look again how I’m going to handle it and how I’m going to prepare for it."

While preparing for an Oakland team that he said has several similarities to Detroit -- including a big defensive line and a speedy defense -- Tebow said he hasn't paid attention to the criticism that has been aimed his way after his performance in Week 8.

"You’re going to have people that praise you and people that criticize you and everything in between," Tebow said. "If I listened to everything that you all say, my world would be so up and down. I’m grounded upon my faith, my family, and that’s what grounds me. Football is what I do for a living and what I do for fun. If I rode the roller coaster of what everybody says about me then my life would be a lot more hectic of what it is.”

When it comes down to it, Tebow said,"ultimately it's about winning games."

"I don’t really care how it looks or what we do as long as we win. Plain and simple, whatever we have to do to get into the end zone and win football games.”

LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT OUTCOME

The Broncos and Raiders played a tightly-contested game in Week 1, with Oakland coming away with a 23-20 win.

This week in Oakland, the Broncos know the matchup might not look anything like the first contest.

“They’ve got a new quarterback, which is a big difference; we do too," Head Coach John Fox said. "Off the top of my head, that’s probably the biggest difference other than we’re two games behind them in the standings, and they’ve had more wins than we have up to this point. It’ll be a good contest, and I’m sure a very physical and feisty one.”

But even with new parts in Oakland, including quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Fox said the Raiders will still look familiar.

"They’re not going to wholesale change too much in this short of time," he said.

As far as the game is concerned, Rahim Moore said he expects the Broncos to go into O.co stadium with an attitude.

“Just have more of a winning mindset and just keep finishing," Moore said. "It’s not going to be easy; the Raiders are probably the toughest team I’ve ever played against, because they’ve got so much [of a] ground attack and air attack. They’ve got some great players over there, a great staff, so if we just be consistent, tackle well and play like a team like we know we can do, then I think we’ll be fine.”

INJURY REPORT

After Wednesday's practice, Fox addressed the availability of Willis McGahee, who had limited participation in the indoor session.

McGahee underwent surgery last Monday for a fractured fourth metacarpal.

“At the end of the day, it's just a matter of keeping (the incision) clean and not getting the risk of infection, so we’re further along with that, as far as it healing up," Fox explained. "Now, it’s just the hand. He’s got a plate and screws in there that he feels comfortable with.”

As for whether the running back will be able to suit up this week, Fox said it's a matter of whether McGahee has use of his injured hand.

“It’s just his pain tolerance," he said. "He’s a tough kid that deals with pain very well, and he had a good day’s work today.”

The rest of the Denver injury report saw Julius Thomas (ankle) with full participation and Orlando Franklin (groin) with limited participation. Quinton Carter (concussion), Virgil Green (neck) and Cassius Vaughn (hamstring) did not participate.

For the Raiders, QB Jason Campbell (collarbone), CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), K Sebastian Janikowski (left hamstring), CB Chris Johnson (groin/hamstring), LB Rolando McClain (ankle) and RB Darren McFadden (foot) did not participate. S Michael Huff (ankle) and C Samson Satele (knee) had limited participation. TE Kevin Boss (concussion), S Matt Giordano (neck), RB Marcel Reece (ankle) and WR Chaz Schilens (groin) had full participation.

Fox said the team will be watching the progress of McFadden, one of the Raiders' top offensive weapons.

“He’s a very talented back, a gifted back, and we’ll keep our eye on that fairly closely," he said. "It was no different last week [with] who was going to play quarterback. You don’t know until an hour and a half until kickoff whether they’re in or out anyways, so you have to prepare for just about anything.”
