Broncos president Joe Ellis hopes last week’s frustration fuels turnaround

  11 Oct 2018

Broncos president/CEO Joe Ellis said Thursday he hopes the angst produced by last week’s 34-16 loss to the New York Jets will produce better results starting Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

“We’re all rallying around each other,” Ellis said. “There was a lot of frustration that came out last week. Hopefully we can channel that into some positive energy on Sunday.”

Ellis met with reporters in Sheridan, where he was co-chair of the fifth annual CEO Build in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity.

Ellis said he was out of town earlier in the week but spoke “a couple of times,” with general manager John Elway about the state of the team.

The Broncos started 2-0, but have lost three consecutive games.

“I’m not concerned about spiraling downhill, I’m looking forward to us bouncing back this week,” Ellis said. “That’s where our focus is. I believe we’ll be ready for the Rams on Sunday. A big challenge for us.

“(There is) a lot of football to be played. Five games in, (we’re) obviously disappointed with the last three weeks because we set high standards for ourselves. Last week (a 34-16 loss at the Jets) was very disappointing, but you move forward from it. You have no choice. I think our players, our coaches and all our football staff understand that.”
