    Denver reporters noticed Broncos owner Pat Bowlen wasn’t himself after the Broncos' 59-14 loss to the Raiders Sunday.

    Bowlen gave them all the “No comment” brush-off when they approached him in the locker room, the Denver Postreports.

    Okay, Al Davis doesn’t usually talk to reporters either. But for him, that’s just how he is every Sunday. Bowlen is known as being pretty media-friendly, as is Broncos Chief Operating Officer Joe Ellis.

    “Perhaps Bowlen and Ellis understand no matter what they say, their words would only inflame the raw emotions that exist after the Broncos' historic blowout loss to their most detested rival,” writes the Denver Post’s Mike Klis.

    Blowout losses at home are a recurring problem for Denver head coach Josh McDaniels. He’s now 0-4 against AFC West teams in games played at Mile High, and the historic whooping at the Raiders’ hands has the entire Mountain Time Zone screaming for McDaniels’ to be fired.

    Does this mean the Raiders have begun the end for a Broncos head coach? Oh, that would be a real shame.
