Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller told reporters after his team's ugly 51-23 loss to the Eagles that Denver is "not a good football team."
"We are where we are right now,'' Miller said. "Right now, [Sunday] ... we're not a good football team.
"We still have time. We still have time to be great,'' he continued. "We're not a great football team right now, but that doesn't mean we don't have a great football team within us. But [Sunday], we're not a good football team, offensively, defensively, special teams, whatever. We're just not good right now.''
With their fourth loss in a row - and fifth in their past six games - the Broncos are 3-5 at the season's halfway point, noted ESPN. Although the team's offense and special teams have been the biggest problems in the previous seven games, the wheels came off the team's defense as well in Sunday's loss.
The Broncos surrendered their most points since a 59-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders in 2010, as the Eagles finished with 419 total yards -- 197 of them rushing. Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz was 15-of-27 for 199 yards and four touchdowns in just three quarters of work.
"[We] gotta go win, gotta go win, it's the pros,'' Miller said. "There are no moral victories or young teams, none of that stuff, some of the excuses you get in college for losing. We've got starters across the board ... we just got beat.''
