Mornin' MHR Friends! So, it seems the MSM is now going to take the DP's report from Thursday's camp that Chris Simms got more reps than Kyle Orton in one single practice and take it to mean that Simms is beating Orton in the QB competition. Of course, this now means the Cutler trade was even worse than everyone said it was! Unleash the hounds! Fire McDaniels! Fire Xanders! Commissioner Goodell should remove Pat Bowlen from ownership! Umm, it's June 2nd, folks...we're about 2 months from seeing a depth chart and 3 months from Week 1.
