The Broncos have pulled victory out of their ass on this one.
Kyle Orton showed himself to be a competent quarterback last season with nothing more than Brandon Lloyd, smoke, and mirrors last season. At least that’s how it went before he got hurt. Jay Cutler had a supporting cast that was Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal, Daniel Graham and the occasional Tony Scheffler.

Sure, they signed Orland Pace, but he comes extra clean after the injuries washed the talent away. And if pass-rush won’t get them? The lack of a good safety will.
And of course? It could have helped if they decided to keep their picks. But hey…
