So, I read Whitlock's article today, here's the link: http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/10187180/The-truth-is-sexy-...-and-so-are-NFL-Truths
I couldn't help but send him an email about his Broncos comments. I know, I fell into the trap, but couldn't help it. Here's my email and his response. I guess he conceded that he had no argument.
Thanks for the note. I appreciate the feedback. I read a lot of my e-mail. Sorry we disagree.

I know you aren't going to respond, because you, like all journalists are afraid of things that prove you wrong. But, I really hope you read it. You my friend, may be the worst journalist in the world when it comes to talking about things that you really have no knowledge about. I am talking about your Denver Broncos remarks saying that if they had Jay Cutler, they would be a Super Bowl caliber team. The FACT is that if they had Jay Cutler, they would be 2-2 right now. There is not a chance that Jay Cutler goes 4 games without an interception. I challenge you to look at his stats for the last 3 years and tell me how many times he has gone 3 games without an INT, let alone 4. The Denver Broncos have won 2 games that were VERY close and if they lost 1 field position battle, or scoring opportunity because of an INT, they would have lost both of those games. If Denver was 2-2 with Cutler right now going into such a "difficult" part of their schedule like everyone says, you would be projecting them as a 5-11 team. With or without Jay, that would be your prediction and if you tell me I'm wrong, you are lying. I realize you are a KC guy, and it is your job to make sure you do not write anything positive about Denver, but you would do yourself a large favor by not speaking about them period. Saying things that make zero sense only makes you look dumb. Just so you know, Orton is 25-12 as a starter, 17-2 at home, and this year has 5 TD, 0 INT, and a 97.7 QB rating(and is 4-0). He has done all this while having to wear a glove on his throwing hand because of a dislocated index finger that broke the skin! Please do research before you write things like this.
