John Fox: 'We've got to get out of' coming up short

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Broncos head coach John Fox is bothered by his team's inability to get going on both sides of the ball until late in the second half.

With Denver once again unable to pull off a fourth quarter rally in Sunday's loss to New England, Broncos head coach John Fox noted the similarities between each of his team's three losses this season at his official press conference after the game through DenverBroncos.com.

Despite losing every single time, the Broncos have been able to reel off an impressive comeback attempt in all three of their defeats this season. Fox was still pleased with his players' effort once again in Week 5, but the second-year coach spoke of fixing his team's early-game jitters first and foremost.

"We’re kind of feeling ourselves through both defensively and offensively," Fox said. "We’ve got to get better. That’s the challenge. There’s a lot of tough guys in that locker room. They hung in there all 60 minutes and we just came up short again. We’ve got to get out of that."

Denver's up and down season may not stabilize anytime soon with San Diego and New Orleans as the next two teams on the schedule, but Fox and company should benefit from a timely Week 7 bye. Finding a way to get rolling quicker in games both offensively and defensively will be a main focal point heading into Week 6, and it's quite clear that Fox wants to avoid forcing his offense to scramble for points in the waning minutes.
