When a team gets crushed 43-8 in the Super Bowl, it is a deflating feeling for most squads. However, the Denver Broncos are instead using the blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks as motivation during the offseason.
The Broncos began their offseason program and are looking to repeat as AFC Champions and finally complete their quest to capture the Lombardi Trophy. They have revealed that whenever a player gets tired, they yell out the number 35 and they bounce back. Using this as motivation is a great move by the team. It proves that they are ready to move on from the embarrassing loss and focus on what lies ahead for 2014.
While the team still needs to get to the draft, which takes place next week, the team sounds focused and ready to move on.
With everything that the team has done in the offseason so far, there is reason to be optimistic. Signing key defensive players and the return of the future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, the Broncos should have all the motivation in the world. In 2013, the team had the motivation to work even harder and get past the divisional round, and they were able to accomplish this task.
Now, having the title as champions of the NFL just out of their reach will make the motivation even stronger. Entering the season with that motivation to take a negative into a positive will allow this team to go far and beyond expectations in search for that elusive Super Bowl win.
