DPP - Q&A: Broncos' Orton takes off glove, and his passes take off - Jeff Legwold
"Orton's teammates consider him to be a tough, smart guy who spends a lot of time at the Broncos facility - taking more preparation time, the players say, than Jay Cutler or Jake Plummer did."

DPP - Broncos' bridge too far is 3rd- and 4th-and one - Lindsay Jones
"We've had a lot of different reasons why we weren't successful on the few short yardage situations we've missed, and we're going to work hard to try to fix that," McDaniels said.

DB - More Than Meets the Eye - Gray Caldwell
Despite what Woody says, coaches and veteran players are impressed with Robert Ayers, his attitude, work ethic and contributions on game day. "You try to contribute when you can and make the plays that come to you instead of going out of your way to make plays, because that's when you mess up the team scheme," Ayers said.

NFL Opinion

FOX - Bad protection, big production for Pack's Rodgers - Kevin Hench
"Orton was hit squarely below the knees against the Patriots and there was no call. Then again, Orton didn't turn to the ref with his palms up and plead for the flag."

NFL - Undefeated teams more a product of league's weak links - Jason La Canfora
"It's funny, because a few weeks back we all were asking whether or not Denver was for real -- myself included -- but by virtue of their early schedule the Broncos have actually faced the toughest road." La Canfora goes on to show he knows practically nothing about the Broncos by writing, "Nolan inherited a team that ranked dead last in many defensive areas, very little was done to change the roster on his side of the ball, yet now they rank first in many statistical categories." Dawkins, Hill, Goodman, A. Smith, Bruton, McBath, Davis, Ayers, Holliday, Reid, Fields, etc. Yes, very little was done to change the defensive roster...
