Fox, Elway, face reality of postseason cut short
Meet with reporters in Denver
You don't need the news to tell you it was a tough day in Broncos Country Saturday, with the home team suffering a devastating loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
A crazy last-minute play vaulted Joe Flacco and the Ravens into a tie with only :31s left in the game.
The stunned Broncos, despite getting the ball back with a chance to get something done in the last half minute, elected to take a knee and settle for overtime.
We all know what happened then, with a critical interception thrown by Peyton Manning late in overtime, leading to an eventual game-winning field goal by Baltimore early in double overtime.
On Monday, Broncos executive vice president John Elway and head coach John Fox explained where the team goes from here.
"We look at everything and learn from it," Elway explained, "and hopefully we're back in this situation again. And we will have looked at it the right way and learned from the situation."
Fox added, "I think, you know, we're going to work very hard again this offseason to get better. And that could be through the draft, free agency, you know, what we do with our own roster. I mean we're not that far along yet. You know, as John mentioned, we accomplished a lot of good things. This isn't all negative."
The Broncos' brass have likely already turned their sights to the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. The first round kicks off April 25th. The Broncos own the 28th overall pick.
