Former NFL star Shannon Sharpe blasted the Denver Broncos after their 50-point win on Sunday.
The Broncos were beaten 70-20 by the Miami Dolphins in Week 3 in Florida.
Sharpe, 55, played tight end for the Broncos for 12 seasons during his NFL career.
He won three Super Bowls and was inducted into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame for his achievements.
And the former NFL star turned media personality was completely mortified by Sunday’s result.
He vented his anger in an angry tweet after the game.
Sharpe wrote: “Broncos country, I am incredibly sorry and ashamed for this pathetic performance by our Broncos. This is unacceptable.”
“Giving up 70 points in an NFL game with a 300-yard passer, a 150-yard receiver and a 200-yard rusher in the same game is unreasonable.”
Miami scored a total of 10 touchdowns during Sunday’s loss as the Broncos failed to stop their explosive offense.
Denver head coach Sean Payton expressed irritation to reporters when asked after the game.
Payton admitted the loss was “embarrassing” and “hard to watch.”
Speaking to reporters, the 59-year-old said: “I’m at a loss for words because I’ve been on the other side of a few games like this and there’s a lot of shouting in this league every now and then,” but it was more than that.
But when a reporter pressed him about this “historic loss,” Payton’s powers ended.
“I’m aware of it,” he said as the reporter continued listing the records broken during that game, to which a visibly frustrated Payton asked, “What’s the question?” What is the question?”
And when the reporter started asking what he thought, Peyton said bluntly: “I just told you. Next question.”
Fans on X, formerly known as Twitter, were divided over Payton’s reaction.
One fan said it was the “most likable Sean Payton moment.”
A third asked: “I wonder what the chances are of him retiring again after this season. Lol, I must be halfway decent.”
