DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Broncos offensive lineman Zane Beadles said even though there were some rough patches, the season is something the Broncos can build on.
Beadles was the guest on CBS4′s Xfinity Monday Live!
“There were definitely successes and definitely some failures in the season; definitely something we can build on, which is exciting,” Beadles said. “It’s not the way you want to end the season, without a doubt, but there are definitely things we can take from it and learn from it and continue going forward.”
Beadles discusses all the hype surrounding Tim Tebow in the video below:
Beadles said the Broncos want to be a running team no matter what. Many said the team’s style of offense wouldn’t work in the NFL, yet the Broncos led the league in rushing and were the only team to say they had the same offensive line in tact the whole season.
“I think on any football team in any football game the biggest keys are to run the football and stop the run,” Beadles said. “If you can do that you give yourself a shot at winning ball games. I think we’ll still be committed to it, absolutely.”
Beadles said Tim Tebow will benefit from having a full offseason this year after last offseason was shortened by the lockout.
“I think he will benefit, I think we all will. We’re a young team and that’s something that last year probably would have been a good thing for us,” he said. “I’m looking forward to it; getting back here in a few months, getting back with the guys and hopefully growing this thing into something better.”
Beadles used Xfinity Monday Live! to pick his favorite to win the AFC Championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots.
“If New England plays the way they did against us I don’t know if there are many teams that can beat them,” he said. “They’ve got weapons. (Tom Brady) is obviously a great quarterback. Their defense didn’t play great during the regular season, but they played really well against us. So if they can keep that going they’re going to be hard to stop.”
The AFC Championship game can be seen at Sunday at 1 p.m. on CBS4.
