DB - Bye Week: McDaniels - Broncos TV

DB - Building Into the Bye Week - Patrick Smyth

DPP - Krieger: Broncos' brainpower key to McDaniels' early success
"It's beginning to look like my prediction of a 5-11 Broncos season will be slightly off the mark...I've made a lot of erroneous forecasts over the years - an occupational hazard - but seldom this erroneous. This is forecasting 30 and snow and getting 80 and sun. So I could always be a TV weatherman." It's actually a very interesting column, in addition to a large heaping of crow...

LTC - Broncos’ Williams on his way - Brian Howell

LTC - Surprise! Broncos are good - Brian Howell
"OK, I’ll admit I was wrong. Like 95 percent of the people who had an opinion about the Denver Broncos, I figured they wouldn’t be any good this year." Puzzling. Howell serves himself some humble pie despite probably being the most objective beat writer all year long. Perhaps he saw the crowfest his DP counterparts have been chowing on and thought it looked good?

USAT - NFL Insider: McDaniels has turned doubters into believers - Jim Corbett

DH - Cutler, Orton backlash baffling - Barry Rozner
"He's not as good as Cutler in any facet of the game, except protecting the football and winning games, which some towns find admirable qualities."

CST - Nothing like forward progress - Neil Hayes
"But there's also no doubt that Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal, Tony Scheffler and a superior offensive line have made Kyle Orton a much more effective player in Denver than he ever was in Chicago." Wait a minute, now. I though Jay Cutler made those guys into good players?

PFW - Broncos' Bailey proving talk of decline premature - Dan Parr

ESPN - Broncos at the bye - Bill Williamson
"A throw-in of the Jay Cutler trade, Orton appears to be a perfect fit for McDaniels’ offense." This needs to stop. I read it on MHR last spring and everywhere else. Kyle Orton was never a throw-in on the Cutler trade. Josh McDaniels chose him over Jason Campbell and others...

DPP - Woody's Mailbag: 6-0 and 10 to go
"I find it funny that people are coming out of the woodwork now claiming they had the Broncos 12-4 all along. They told all their friends (both of them)." What a guy.
