Not to make this about me, but a quick story, if you'll permit me. A year ago, a Denver TV station asked me to do a quick telephone interview prior to the Ravens game, when the Broncos were 6-0 and the Ravens were still figuring out their identity. They asked me if I could try to sum up the city's opinion of the Broncos, specifically Kyle Orton. I'm no homer, which I hope you've learned from reading this column, and so I gave them an answer I thought was honest and objective. I said it was an impressive start, but that no one really was ready to say the Broncos were for real just yet for a couple of reasons. No. 1, they didn't run the ball all that well, and No. 2, because they didn't believe Kyle Orton could make the kind of throws that are impossible to defend, throws deep to the outside, between the harsh marks and the sideline.
