Eric Decker didn't make excuses. He didn't hide from the media because he dropped a couple of passes. The Broncos' fourth-year receiver who had 85 catches last season admitted disappointment in his latest personal performance. "Greatly" he said at his locker Monday. "The TD and the one across the middle — just ridiculous. Painful." By TD Decker was referring to a potential touchdown pass he dropped from Peyton Manning near the left corner of the end zone in the third quarter of the Broncos' 49-27 victory Thursday night against Baltimore. Nothing hurt there for on the next play Manning hit Wes Welker for a 2-yard touchdown pass. There also was a skinny slant drop by Decker late in the third quarter that would have given the Broncos a first down. "For me it's more about focus than anything attention to detail" Decker said. "All of that will carry over to the game."
