Broncos boss blames players, not coaches, for nosedive

DENVER (AP) Broncos general manager John Elway defended his embattled rookie head coach and his staff Friday night while laying the blame for Denver's five-game skid squarely on the shoulders of his underachieving players.

"At the end of the year we'll evaluate it and we'll look back and see what happened. But I will tell you, I think we got a little bit soft," Elway said Friday night. "To be dead honest with you, we got a little bit soft. We went 4-0 in the preseason, we started out 3-1, then we get a bye week and if you exhale in this league, you're in trouble.

"To be dead honest with you, I think we exhaled and it's hard to recover from that. So, it's a lesson that hopefully we all learned and prevent it from happening again."
