  • Hey Slicker,

    Back about '85, I was working out of a Greeley motel room, paying no attention to anything but 18 hour days.

    Every time I hit the motel coffee shop, these two big construction type guys were shuffling papers in a big round corner booth. Made no difference, 5 a.m.,or 12 p.m., even the two noon-times I came back -- they were there.

    Finally, on a Thursday night, my curious bug was buzzing too much. So I marched over and asked what kind of project required them to work 24/7.

    The one guy laughs and sticks out a hand slightly smaller than Mile High Stadium.

    "I'm John Hadl and we're the Broncos quarterback coaches. We're here preparing the one-hour teaching sessions for our rookie quarterback. Takes us about 6-8 hours to get ready for each hour teaching him before he does everything letter perfect. Then we spend an hour reviewing as much as possible of what we've taught.So far, he hasn't forgotten any of it."

    Bronco fans,of course, know the rookie was Elway.

    Most just considered him a big, strong-armed "natural," without realizing how powerful his brain was.

    What I can't understand -- why discard Cutler for Orton?

    That makes as much sense as the Packers squeezing Favre out so Aaron Rodgers could start.

    Last Saturday, I suspect Packers' management had a few second thoughts.

  • Hank,

    The broncos didn't discard Cutler... He discarded himself! He whined and cried like a little baby until they got rid of him.... the fact of the matter is Orton has us 5-0 and has played mistake free... Cutler threw 4 interceptions in his debut and more since then...

    I would personally rather have a calm collected guy playing mistake free and winning rather than a crybaby that may have a good arm but throws too many pics and costs his team some games...

    I could be wrong but that is my opinion
