Woody's Mailbag: I give the Broncos a "huncher's" chance against Jets - The Denver Post
Woody: Before the season, in your column predicting the Broncos' 2010 results, you wrote that you thought Denver would upset the New York Jets (17-13). Now that the season is five weeks old, and with the Jets flying into town this week, do you still agree with that assessment? You're definitely on a roll. You have only missed one game so far (Titans 21, Broncos 20). I hope your streak continues on Sunday, and I pray that you're wrong in the upcoming games where you predict a Broncos loss!

How I See It: AFC West Stock Watch - AFC West Blog - ESPN
FALLING 1. Steve Crosby, special teams coach, San Diego Chargers: San Diego head coach Norv Turner has said Crosby will not be fired because of his unit's follies and the issues may not all be Crosby's fault, but the truth is, his unit is killing the Chargers.
