Want to know what it’s like to be on the losing end of a 59-14 landslide? According to Broncos WR Brandon Lloyd – whose squad lost by that very score last Sunday to Oakland – it’s quite shame-inducing.
“There’s really no excuse for getting blown up on like that,” Lloyd told 104.3 the Fan, via sportsradiointervews.com. “That’s a high school game. That’s not a professional football game and it’s embarrassing. It’s just not right and there’s nothing really much we can do about that today but learn from it. Maybe there’s something during the week that we did wrong as players and coaches and try to correct that moving forward.”
And then, there’s this final quote where Lloyd weaves a tale of football legends, product placement and fantasy concoctions into one delicious paragraph.
“Especially after that game because I was embarrassed wearing the helmet and wearing the jersey,” Lloyd said. “It was that bad and like I said it’s the leadership. All of our different styles of leadership have to come to the forefront and that’s the best we can do. There’s no magic formula and there’s no Vince Lombardi speech that Coach McDaniels can pull out of the archives and read to us that’s going to make us a better team. We just have to keep grinding during the weeks and coaches have to continue to put game plans together that to put us in successful positions and we have to execute as players. Period. There’s no magical pixie dust that we can put in our Gatorade and drink it and go out and play like a new team.”
