Big Hole Too Much to Overcome for Broncos in Latest Setback in San Diego

Denver Bronocs vs San Diego Cahrgers

In spite of an inspired performance from his special teams units in his debut as interim Broncos head coach, Joe DeCamillis couldn’t hide how upset he was after an awful loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Denver had some late chances to get back in the game, but an 18-point hole on the road was too much, as eventually the Chargers were able to put the game away 21-13 to send the Broncos to their second straight loss.

“I just wish we could have got a win for the city, got a win for the organization,” DeCamillis told the media after the game. “I’m sick to my stomach. It’s sickening. I hate to lose, man. That’s all.”

“It’s just frustrating when you get three turnovers on special teams and you don’t win the game,” DeCamillis said. “That’s not the way you want be.”

“We didn’t execute the way we wanted to,” DeCamillis said. “We didn’t want a touchback right there. Obviously we could have maybe got some field position right there, garnered some field position. We didn’t do that. That’s why I said it wasn’t just one phase that made mistakes. We all made mistakes. So we’ve got to get them corrected.”

The Broncos did little right, and by the start of the fourth quarter had less than 200 yards of offense, not a winning formula if you are going to get a win on the road.

If you were betting in legal online casino Resorts, you would have never guess the Denver offense would have gone into the tank like it did against a young Chargers offense.

Give DeCamillis credit, as he did what he could to get the Broncos ready on a short week as the teams’ head coach, but in the end it’s a results business, and Thursday night against the Chargers, he was unable to get the Broncos the results they wanted.

“I know [Kubiak’s] got a tough job. I can tell you that,” he said. “Hopefully I did the right things for the most part. Like I said, the ultimate is to win the game and we didn’t do that.”

The quarterback play of Trevor Siemian was an issue for the team, as he wasn’t able to have a big bounce back game after injury forced him to miss the game the week before against the Atlanta Falcons.

“We had a lot of self-inflicted wounds,” Siemian said. “Those are tough to overcome, and we didn’t make the most of our opportunities, I thought, early in the game. We showed a lot of resiliance there at the end, but it was too little, too late for us.”

Siemian was able to put together a 51-yard touchdown drive and a 56-yard field goal drive, but down 18 on the road was just too much as the Broncos lost by eight.

“I think too we got behind a little bit early and the combination of Demaryius and Emmanuel, that might scare some people and they want to keep a lot of things in front of them,” Siemian said.

“That’s just how the game unfolded. I’m sure each team plays it a little different. Again, tough when you’re down so much. You kind of play into their favor when you’re just dinking the ball down like that. I think we’ll get it fixed, though. I feel pretty good about that.”
