DPP - Kiszla: Time to embrace Orton as one of us
"After managing to win the four games he has started for Denver, Orton owns a higher passer rating than Philip Rivers or Tony Romo, yet Orton still gets bashed on fan websites dedicated to the team, such as milehighreport.com, where a review fresh off Denver's win against Dallas griped: "Right now, I feel like I'm watching a time bomb. No picks yet, but a five-interception game is right around the corner. . . . Bottom line is I don't trust him."

"But I was always into what Bill was doing, what he had to take care of, as much as I could see. There was plenty I couldn't see. But the things I could watch him do — how he handled the staff meeting, how he planned practice, how he ran training camp, how he handled the players, what he did at halftime, what he did on a Monday after a loss, how he handled a win, all of those things, if you pay attention and note them in your head and take notes, they can teach you an extraordinary amount of what it's about to be a head coach."

NFL Opinion

NFP - Sunday at the Post - Mike Lombardi
"Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall is a one-man wrecking crew. Who covers him is important, but they better be able to tackle him as well."

ESPN - 10 Spot: Manning better than ever - Adam Schefter
"I tell you what, just being under Josh McDaniels for a few months now, I mean he's a guy that is going to have you as prepared as you can be for a game, and that's something that throughout my 11 years I haven't had a lot of," Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. "I've had some great coaches, including [Mike] Shanahan, but [McDaniels] is definitely one-of-a-kind in the way that he approaches the game."
