The NFL power rankings after Week 10 are showing a few widening gaps. Of course, the Green Bay Packers are pulling away from the entire NFL while the San Francisco 49ers are finally distancing themselves as the No. 2 team.

Altitude Sickness: Ask a visiting Jets fan/GGN writer anything - Mile High Report
Hello there, Denver faithful! Been quite a roller coaster for you so far, huh? Nobody wanted to give you or your young QB the time of day but here we are more than halfway through the year with Denver only one game behind a team it has already beaten. I say good show to you.

Elway and Fox Give Some Support for Tim Tebow - Mile High Report
For awhile now, Elway, in my opinion, has seemed to be neutral on Tebow, with maybe a slightly negative bias regarding his passing abilities. However, today, Elway seemed to possibly be turning the corner on seeing Tebow's potential for the long-term. The following are some comments that he made today about Tebow on the Vic and Gary Show.

The truth behind the numbers - Mile High Report
We had a major win yesterday beating the Chiefs on the road, and this game is a great sample of what I'm expecting from Tebow on the huddle for the Broncos. This was a game where we were able to pound the rock the entire afternoon, getting first down after first down on the offense, and holding the house very well on the defense either on rushing or passing plays.

Mike McCoy offensive mastermind or just lucky? - Mile High Report
I have seen the comments regarding the unrest for the lack of passing attempts in the KC game, and I really have no idea why you would complain, if you are a Bronco fan or even just a Tebow fan.  I am starting to believe that Mike McCoy may have been Josh McDaniels greatest hire and that Fox knows what the hell he was doing in retaining this guy.

This style offense is only effective temporarily - Mile High Report
Every flapping trap that thinks they know something about football is talking about the temporary effectiveness of our Tebow-led-rushing-attack-based offense. They all dismiss it as "college-style" or "gimicky" or "simply because Tebow can't throw the ball" etc. My question is, why can't this work long term?

The View in Blue from Arrowhead - Mile High Report
So I must admit going to Arrowhead in Colors is nothing like going into the black hole with the same.  The most derisive comments we got were from a drunk directly behind my 15 year old son and I.  I choose to think he was a bit inbred and stupid, so I told him I now understood why our tickets were so cheap and ignored him for the rest of the game…
