Denver Broncos tight end Noah Fant has underlined that he is absolutely not happy with the way his team performed on the offensive side in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos, who hosted the Chiefs at Nile High Stadium, disappointed their fans as the reigning champions Chiefs dominated the hosts 43-16.
Fant caught three passes on seven attempts for 38 yards against the Chiefs. "I don't have bad attitude about it right? But I'm definitely not happy with the results that we have right now, right? It's unacceptable," Fant said Tuesday.
"We want to be better than what we're doing ... you look at the numbers and we're not living up to our potential and we have so much ability, so much talent on the offensive side of the ball, and we have to figure out how to make these things work.
"I'm still positive about it, but at some point it's like, put up or shut up, and buckle down and get these things going." Going forward, Fant says everybody has to take the responsibility and step up to make sure those kind of nights don't happen anymore.
"As far as the passing game goes ... hopefully everybody is able to get involved," Fant said. "Like Coach said, I think it's a little bit of everybody, right? We all have to take responsibility, we all have to figure out exactly what's going on and come up with a solution."
Fant reveals there were words in the locker room after the Chiefs loss
Fant revealed that the Broncos defense wasn't happy with the way offense performed but he fully understood their frustration. "There was definitely words said in the locker room after the game," Fant said.
"I'm not going to go into detail, that stays in the locker room, but they have every right to be frustrated and upset. ... I put a lot of the load on us; Kansas City had one of the most powerful offenses, one of the most high-octane offenses in the league, right? And they were holding them to field goals, getting three-and-outs on them, all these things, and we're not really living up to our ability on offense.
If I was in a defensive player's position, I would feel the exact same way. Those guys have every right to be heated and upset." Fant and the Broncos will be hoping to get back on the right track this Sunday when they host the Los Angeles Chargers.
