The loss was big. The loss was frustrating.
Perhaps more than anything, the Broncos struggled to be competitive against a team that was 1-3 and riding a three-game losing streak entering the game.
After seeing the Broncos lose their third straight game, 34-16 to the New York Jets on Sunday, Broncos head coach Vance Joseph that changes are coming.
"Absolutely there are going to be some changes," Joseph told KOA NewsRadio Voice of the Broncos Dave Logan. "I'm not sure what they're going to be but you can't lose three games in a row, the way we lost today, and not make some changes. We'll fly back home, watch the tape and see where we are."
After talking with Dave on the KOA NewsRadio postgame show, Coach Joseph spoke with reporters at MetLife Stadium and was asked if he would consider a change to the defensive coaching staff.
"No, no, I don't think we're there." Joseph said. "I thought we were sound schematically but again, it always starts with coaching. We have to coach better so they can play better. But we pay our players to play also so it's not just coaching, it's all of us involved. So I'm not going to stand up here after a loss like that and start blaming our coaches or our players. It starts with me and we have to coach and play better."
Logan told KOA NewsRadio's Mike Rice that he expects changes of some sort this week for the Broncos.
"This is my opinion. They [the Broncos] don't consult me before they make these changes," Logan said. "I don't think you'll see Vance Joseph fired. [Defensive coordinator] Joe Woods has sort of been on the hot seat for quite some time. When you have a head coach on the hot seat and you put a performance out here and you're the coordinator, sometimes it comes back and sits in your lap and moves up the chain and sits in the head coach's lap."
"I haven't seen the tape so I'm not advocating that," Logan added. "But I am advocating them doing something to make certain that this season does not wind up like last season."
