So, after last week’s fiasco, we can all expect a (justified) big drop in the rankings. Nothing to do but take a deep breath and get it over with fast… like ripping a band-aid… I hate ripping band-aids… Our weekly perusal around the Interwebz for water cooler fodder. (Number in parenthesis represents last week’s ranking).

The Broncos have been outscored by 61 points, the third-worst mark in the league.

Talk about the wheels coming off. That loss to the visiting Raiders last week is about as embarrassing as it gets. QB Kyle Orton played his worst game this season, but the defense didn’t exactly show up, either. Hopefully the London air will bring some life back to this football team.

They keep falling week by week. That defense is horrible. It can’t stop anybody. Worse, they don’t have the running game to keep it off the field.

That Broncos defense looked soft—tissue soft—against the Raiders.
USA Today: 27th (22)
They have gone 4-13 since opening last season 6-0.
Average rank: 27.60. Average change: down 3.6
