NFL - Broncos’ Bowlen heaps praise on Marshall, McDaniels - Steve Wyche
"Brandon understands that he’s got a year left on his present deal, but if he keeps playing the way he is, he’s going to get a very significant raise — a much better contract," Bowlen said. "That’s the way it goes, and Brandon has accepted that."

DPP - Gasp! 5-0 start began in "dog days" - Mike Klis
"A lot of attention is paid to our conditioning," Broncos defensive lineman Vonnie Holliday said. "As a veteran player, I hate it. We do a lot of running, a lot of cardio work. But it helps us. If coach implements something, and it works, you can't complain too much about it."

DB - Staying Grounded - Mike Rice
"We improved from week four to week five," Orton said. "Now the goal is to humble ourselves again and improve from week five to (week) six. I know all these vets that we have. We’re going to come back and work even harder this week and be a better team (in) week six."

NFL Opinion

FOX - Schein 9: It's ugly and crowded at bottom of NFL
"That would be this guy. I picked Denver to win three games. The Broncos are 5-0...How good do you feel for Josh McDaniels, maligned by everyone (starting with this guy) for botching everything during the offseason? And the players, from Holliday to Brian Dawkins, use motivation, including from this guy, when we rip Denver."
