With how god-awful teams like the Bengals, Dolphins, and Jets have been to start their campaigns, the Denver Broncos have flown under the radar while starting 0-3.

But Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders feels as bad about this rough season as anyone else.

Speaking to the media after Denver's 27-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers, Sanders was brutally honest about the season. He described starting the season at 0-3 as "living in [a] world of suck."

Sanders lamented that while he still finds football fun, it's a lot less fun when the team is losing all the time. He also expressed frustration at how limited his production was in the game.

"Times are rough around here. Obviously the past three years - it's been tough. Trying to get it right. We sit at 0-3 in [a] world of suck. Football is still fun, but it's no su much fun when you're losing, especially when you prepare as hard as you can, you go out and have four targets, two catches and 10 yards. But there's always next week, so I'm optimistic."

Denver's offense has largely been anemic under first-year head coach Vic Fangio. The Broncos have been held to 16 points or less in each of their first three games this year.

Their playcalling has also been suspect, and may have cost them a win over the Chicago Bears at home last week.

Whatever the biggest underlying problem in Denver is, it looks like things are getting pretty difficult in the locker room.

The Broncos' next game will be next Sunday at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
