Broncos DE Derek Wolfe on Teams’ Struggles: “It’s New. And It’s Terrible”
The Patriots routed the Broncos 41-16 Sunday night. And the once mighty Denver defense looked ordinary in the defeat. Defensive end Derek Wolfe was critical of his team’s effort, Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post reports.
“It’s just sad. It’s real sad,” Wolfe said Sunday. “It’s sad that we went from a championship-caliber team to a team that stinks and nobody respects us.”
“This is new,” said Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, trying to wipe off the stink of it all in the locker room. “It’s new. And it’s terrible.”
The Eagles dropped 51 on the defense a week ago, right? Well, it did. Denver had not given up more than 40 points in back-to-back games since December 2011.
“I think we stink,” said Wolfe, who punctuated his disgust with a word not fit for print in a family newspaper.
“We’re used to winning. We’re a winning organization. And we’re losing right now. It’s tough. We’re not used to it. And nobody’s happy,” Denver cornerback Bradley Roby said.
