Bowlen's thoughts

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen talked for the first time about the 2007 season, and here are some of the highlights of Friday's conversation:

-- On the disappointment of the 2007 season, his 24th as Broncos owner: “This year, at this particular point in time, feels as bad or worse as any of the bad years.”

-- On Broncos coach Mike Shanahan: “He’s frustrated with the season, I’m frustrated with the season, but I have no problems with Mike.”

-- On Broncos coach Mike Shanahan taking the blame for the 7-9 season: “Mike took the blame, but if I had to spread it out, I think Mike was let down by some of his coaches, and he was let down obviously by some of his players. I don’t know, but I think he saw that at some point in the season. But there was very little he could do to right the ship.”

-- On assistant head coach/defense Jim Bates: “I don’t want to point fingers at Jim. He came in with a different defensive style. It didn’t work. He’s been a proven defensive guy for a long time, but it didn’t work here.”

-- On players not having a sense of urgency after some tough losses: “I can understand if you lose to the Green Bay Packers in overtime, but that should impact you. You should say ‘We’re not going to let that happen again.’”

-- On the lack of urgency he saw on the team: “I don’t think it’s a lot of guys. And I’m not trying to make that a big issue, other than it sort of is. We’re all professionals, we’re all getting paid, but there’s a higher goal than that, at least in my mind. It’s your reputation, it’s your career, it’s all these things. I think that some of that was missing.”

-- On the prospects for the team in the future: “I’m not anxiety ridden at all. But I know we have a lot of work to do.”

I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
