ENGLEWOOD — Denver Broncos CEO Joe Ellis on Tuesday wrote a letter to fans telling them ticket prices won't be raised next season and thanking them for sticking with the franchise through its first losing season since 2010.

General manager John Elway decided to stick with coach Vance Joseph despite the Broncos' most disappointing season in decades, one that began with a 3-1 start but crumbled to a 5-11 finish.

"We share your disappointment for not reaching our goals after a promising start to the season," Ellis wrote. "There are no excuses for what went wrong, and all of us take full responsibility for our first losing season in seven years."

Ellis said the Broncos cannot live on their past glory — they were Super Bowl champs just two years ago — and that there will be no sense of entitlement in the organization.

"There are no shortcuts and all of us must put in the hard work to get better," he said, highlighting "all of us."

Ellis said he's confident Elway and Joseph can steer the Broncos back to success.
