NFL Opinion

SF - Information From My Eyes - Ted Bartlett
"The first thing I’ll say is that despite all the hand-wringing about the Broncos quitting, I saw no evidence of that whatsoever. I saw some players have bad games, but nobody who appeared to be loafing...Broncos fans need to be honest with themselves, and understand that this is a talent problem, and not an effort problem."

NFP - The Monday Tavern - Mike Lombardi
"Washington: Mike Shanahan is in D.C. as expected, and his son Kyle will be following him in two weeks. Mike Zimmer of the Bengals is the name I hear most often for the defensive coordinator job." Wow, no Slowik? That's interesting...

NFP - Diner morning news: It’s time for the playoffs - Mike Lombardi
"This offseason will be a long one for the Broncos, but as long as they’re honest about where they are as a team, they can be legitimate playoff contenders in 2010. They must improve their offensive line and find a way to control the line of scrimmage before they can give real consideration to being a playoff team."
