Von Miller seems to think the Broncos’ 23-20 loss yesterday was his fault.“I just can’t get it done. I need to watch the film and figure it out — what I can do to make things happen ,” said the linebacker who accounted for 1.5 of the Broncos’ five sacks yesterday but was also part of the unit that allowed Todd Gurley to rush for a career-high 208 yards.“We knew we’d be leaking the run today because the pass was our focus, but 272 yards is just ridiculous. I’ve got to do better,” Miller added. “I was able to get some sacks today, but the game-changing plays, I just still didn’t make them.”Nevermind the taunting from Emmanuel Sanders that possibly prevented a touchdown. Or holding penalties that pushed an already ineffective Case Keenum back to 3rd-and-30. Or an absent running game (17 out of 58 plays) or multiple missed opportunities on third and short.As far as No. 58 is concerned, he alone has to be amazing for this team to win.And sadly, he’s probably not wrong - at least the part about being amazing. Doing it alone, though, is not going to be enough.“We start fast and we’ve just got to be consistent. I’ve got to be consistent. I’ve got to do better and get sacks and forced fumbles and pick it up and score,” Miller said. “Those are the type of plays that I dream about every day, and I’ve got to start making those for us to start winning.”There is definitely reason to think the offense cannot get it done and plenty of blame for falling short the fourth week in a row - ineptitude in the red zone, penalties, play calling - but Miller still sees the loss as something he can - and should - fix in spite of the offense.“I’ve got to get better. I’ve got to get there. I’ve got to make the big plays. Sacks, forced fumbles, the plays that I’m known for. I’m just not making them,” the frustrated veteran said. “I’m falling into sacks like the other guys in the league and that’s just not me. I’ve got to do better and I’ve started. I will do better.”After starting the season with three sacks on the elusive Russell Wilson in Week 1, Miller has only 5.5 through six games.In “Miller’s world,” as he says,that’s not even close to good enough.“Von’s play hasn’t been what it’s supposed to be for my teammates to be successful,” Miller added. “I’ve been saying it for two weeks. I will definitely get it done. I’ve never gotten up here and lied to you guys, not one time, and that’s definitely No. 1 on my list. I will get that finished.”A bright spot in his quest will be his rookie sidekick, Bradley Chubb. The first-round pick had three sacks in yesterday’s game against the NFL’s best offensive line. More of that and Miller will be his sidekick - as Miller seems to understand.“It’s me. Chubb had a great day today,” he said. “I was close on one, but close don’t really do it for you in the National Football League.”Nope. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t good things to build upon from the loss. The defense held the Rams to just 23 points - their lowest score this season - and Chubb’s three-sack bonanza was done within his first six games as an NFL player. It took Miller 23 games for that kind of production. But the rookie isn’t as happy as he might be with that performance since it didn’t end with a W.“It’s good and all that to get to the quarterback three times Domata Peko Color Rush Jersey , but it’s not good enough, you know what I’m saying?” Chubb said. “ We feel like in the Outside Linebackers Room, we put all the pressure on us. If we want to win, we’ve got to make plays. Sometimes we did make those plays, but we’ve just got to do more.”Miller and his teammates insist the issue is not play calling. He “100 percent” believes in the defensive scheme and says the players need to either make it happen or change the play.“We lost, and it’s on us. The coaches called the plays. If we don’t like the plays, change the play,” he said. One thing Miller knows for sure is that the loss hurts - and that’s how it should be.“You’ve got to be hurt after losses like this. It’s just not something that you can rub off and say, ‘We’ll be better after this.’ It doesn’t work like that. You’ve got to be hurt when you lose,” he said. “You shouldn’t be laughing. It should wear on you. It should really bother you to lose on this level. Everyone is getting paid, everyone has responsibilities on this team and the No. 1 responsibility for all of us is to win, and we are not doing that. I’m not doing that. It should hurt. It should feel bad, and if we all feel the same way that I’m feeling, we’ll be great.”Miller didn’t take the bait when asked about fans booing and being upset too. But he definitely put out a subtle call to fans to keep the faith - because he’s going to do better.“I’ve never attacked the Denver Bronco fan base. They’ve been through thick and thin with me. Loyal as heck,” he said. “We’ve got real fans here. If fans are losing hope, I just can’t believe that. We’ve still got a long season ahead of us, and Broncos Country has been great for us. We still need them to do the same thing for us to get this turned around.”And what makes that possibly believable?Because Miller hates where the team is right now.“I hate losing more than I love winning, so in the spot where we are at right now, I can’t even put it into words,” he said. “It’s our message to the guys, just keep playing. It’s a championship fight. You lose a couple rounds at the beginning. Just keep playing and find out where we end up.” The Denver Broncos are looking at “some 3-5 bullsh*t” right now and nobody likes the idea of another loss before the Bye Week - especially this week’s Ultimate Fan. But it’s getting harder to be optimistic about the team’s chances at salvaging the season when it keeps making costly mistakes at very inopportune times.KilledByAnAngel becomes the first Ultimate Fan this season to predict a loss, but don’t be too hard on him - the last time a fan did that, the Broncos responded with a win just to show us...and we’ll take that all day long - won’t we, KilledByAnAngel?Of course we will. : ) Week 9: Texans at BroncosMHR - Broncos hung tough with Kansas City for part of the game but couldn’t keep it together long enough - whether it was penalties or other mistakes - to really make a run for a win. Is that what this 2018 team is - “just not quite good enough”?KilledByAnAngel: Unfortunately, I think so.As much as I want to keep chugging the orange kool-aid Demarcus Walker Jersey , I’ve lost hope that this team can get over the hump of mediocrity.I’m not sure exactly what the necessary change is to be “good enough,” but my gut tells me that it’s a coaching change.We have a tremendous amount of talent on our team but it’s not coming together under this staff.The fact that we have hung in there against some of the best teams in the league tells me that we’re not lacking for heart.MHR - Demaryius Thomas is now a Texan. Do you like this move? How do you think Courtland Sutton will do in a No. 1 WR role?KilledByAnAngel: I was actually shocked by the uproar that this move created in Broncos Country.It felt like just the other day that everybody was adamant that we trade DT.Ultimately, I do like the move.DT has been one of my favorites for a long time - his is one of the few jerseys I own.But there’s no denying that he has lost a step and is no longer the No. 1 receiver on our team.Between the salary and lack of production, it was time to move on.This is one of those circumstances where the move was best for both parties involved.It allows DT to go play with an actual quarterback and have a shot at the post-season, and it frees up cap space for us while giving Sutton a chance to grow.Sutton is still rough around the edges, as you would expect from a rookie, but his physical ability has already flashed dramatically.He’s got great body control and the ability to make contested catches look easy.I agree with what Elway said - moving Sutton into a more starring role is only going to aid in his development, and I expect great things from him from here on out.MHR - Bill Musgrave called more running plays against KC and it paid off. Yesterday he said “I second the f****** motion” when reminded Broncos lead the league in yards per carry. Do you believe Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker can have the same success against the Texans run defense, which has gotten much better the past five games?KilledByAnAngel: This is going to be the stiffest run defense we have faced, so I’m not as confident our tandem will find quite as much success.I would have more confidence in our run game if our passing game was a viable threat, but that’s not where we’re at right now.I do have faith that Lindsay and Booker will be able to gain yardage, especially if Musgrave commits to the ground game.But the moment that we fall behind or the Texans stack the box, that’s all she wrote.MHR - The Texans’ front 7 - led by JJ Watt - can totally wreck an offense. How do you think Case Keenum and the Broncos’ O-line will do against this group? What kind of play calls for Keenum would you put in the game plan this week?KilledByAnAngel: Between Bolles’ propensity for penalties (which has not improved this season) and the injuries that have fallen upon our O-line, I’m worried about it. Keenum is holding on to the ball too long, which is a deadly combination with our poor pass protection.We need the same kind of play calls for Keenum that we need every week - we need to get him outside of the pocket.He thrived on play action and roll outs with the Vikings.Musgrave should call plays that don’t require Keenum to be a pure pocket passer.MHR - Two weeks ago Colby Wadman had a 50-yard punt. Last week, a 12-yarder. Are you concerned about our punting situation, especially when it needs to happen so often in our games?KilledByAnAngel: Of all of the things I’m concerned about, punting is not high on the list right now.Wadman seems to be having the struggles of getting used to playing professionally, but I think he’ll improve with more experience. Sadly, with as much as we’ll need to punt, an ugly shank or two is to be expected.MHR - Bradley Chubb was just named Defensive Rookie of the Month. What kind of impact do you expect him to keep having this season and down the road? Do you believe choosing Chubb over a QB was still the right move in the draft by Elway?KilledByAnAngel: Chubb’s progression has been awesome to see!I expect him to continue to improve as the season wears on.Despite a slow start, we’re starting to see the powerful combination of Von Miller and Chubb that we all expected when he was drafted.He’s going to acquire more and more skills, his instincts will become more refined, and we already know he has the motor to power it all.Choosing Chubb was absolutely the best move in the draft.Although we are in DESPERATE need of a proper QB, there was not going to be one available where we were picking , especially with the QB-needy teams ahead of us.Despite the fact that we already had Von, we went with the BPA and you can truly never have enough edge rushers in this league.This tag team is going to pay dividends for us for many seasons to come.MHR - Deshaun Watson is a talented QB who has become more and more comfortable each game after having a season-ending injury last year. How should the Broncos attempt to contain him?KilledByAnAngel: We’ll have to use a game plan that is similar to how we kept Russell Wilson in the pocket.Our edge rushers can’t lose contain on the outside. With that said, Watson can still damage you from inside the pocket, so we’ll need our DBs to hold up on the back end.That’s easier said than done with Hopkins and now DT, but if we get those two aspects of our D mostly working, we’ll be able to get some push up the middle of our defensive line and limit Watson’s playmaking ability.MHR - Su’a Cravens is back on the field this week. What kind of improvement can he bring to the secondary to help against DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas?KilledByAnAngel: To me, Cravens’ impact is all potential right now.We’ve talked about him as a savior since the moment we acquired him, but until I actually see him on the field performing at a high level, I have a hard time fathoming any improvement from his contributions. I love that he came out and said, “I’m going to try to blast somebody” because I’m eager to see that kind of tenacity.I don’t see him contributing much against Hopkins and DT but I look forward to him covering the tight end, playing hard nosed against the run, and blitzing.MHR - The run defense has been gashed in several games, a few times by mediocre running backs. Lamar Miller has been great the past two games but hasn’t faced the toughest of defenses. Who has the better day on Sunday - Lamar Miller or the Broncos’ defense?KilledByAnAngel: Broncos’ defense for sure.Miller isn’t going to make it to three straight 100-yard games.He’ll find a bit of success, but I think our D is going to clamp down on the Texans’ run game and force them to beat us in other ways.MHR - What are your thoughts on the season - do the Broncos have any chance at all for a Wild Card spot, are they going to end up with “some 7-9 bullsh*t” or should they tank to go for a better draft pick?KilledByAnAngel:I really, REALLY want to say that they have a chance at a Wild Card spot, but I can’t see it happening.Not with our coaching staff and not with Keenum’s unsteady play.Our defense has the potential to be world-beaters but also ends up giving up massive games due to ineffective play calling.The Broncos will never tank - there’s just too much damn heart on the team.But I do see us in the Jeff Fisher range of 7-9.Just good enough to not get a blue chip draft pick but bad enough to give us our first back-to-back losing seasons in decades.MHR - Finally, Chris Harris joked (but not really) that he would win the one-on-one with DT if matched up in Sunday’s game because he “was just that good.” On the day Broncos honor DT, who gets the best of the matchup?KilledByAnAngel: I have to agree with Harris on this one.In watching DT week to week, my highly developed sense of being a couch coach tells me that he has slowed down.His route running is still great, but he doesn’t seem to fight for balls and certainly doesn’t have the speed he used to. I’m sure Harris has slowed down as well, but you wouldn’t know it from his prowess in the secondary. But I see DT getting around 70 yards and a score if another corner is covering him.PredictionsThe FavoritesHow did you become a Broncos fan?Birthright!I was born in Colorado, and the family has always been Broncos fans.
