Denver Broncos GM and former star QB John Elway last night admitted his team were not up to the task of defeating the Seattle Seahawks.

The Super Bowl ended up being a blow out for the Broncos after the Seattle Seahawks dominated the game, winning 43-8 and allowing only one score from Peyton Manning's team. 

Speaking in a press conference on Tuesday night, the former Super Bowl winner, Elway was asked about his team's failure after a successful 15-4 record breaking season.

The Hall of Famer admitted to journalists: "We came up short, but it wasn't due to lack of effort or lack of want-to. We didn't play very well two days ago." 

However he was quick to point out that the focus on the Broncos is going forward after a great season rather than looking back at a single defeat.

"The goal has not changed and it will not change...The bottom line is we're going to work as hard as we worked this year."

Elway also admitted that he won't forget the game in a hurry and was asked how he got over the Super Bowl losses he suffered as a player.

He replied jokingly but with complete honesty, saying: "I'm not over them yet. I just add this one to it.
