Good Morning, MHR! I'm back from Bethpage, as my wife and I spent a couple of days trudging through the mud. Definitely wish we could go back for the finish instead of work! Oh, well. For all the masochists out there, Wilcots spends nine more minutes ripping Josh McDaniels into shreds; have fun with that one.

NFLN - NFL Videos: 32 in 32: Denver Broncos
Why, oh why does the Network have to send Solomon Wilcots up to analyze the Broncos for nine minutes? More shouting about Josh McDaniels and morale. Wilcots shows film of Cutler and Orton throwing on the run. Every Orton throw is rolling to his left, while Cutler's throws are mostly rolling right. Look, Wilcots - we know Cutler has the stronger arm, but that's obnoxious. He even goes on to say that McDaniels' arm is weaker than all of the Patriots' guys, including Matt Cassel. Wow, that was a painful watch.
