He conviniently ignores the fact that the Broncos were competitve in the 3 losses and yes, the Broncos were still gelling at that time too.
The packers record is worse than the Broncos and they are playing in a pretty mediocre if not weak division too. The pack have lost to the niners, the seahawks, the colts and the giants and they are on a 2 game losing streak. Rogers is having another good year but not so much better than Manning that he's in another tier. Meh, it's just a silly article IMHO.
Pit at full strength! not hardly most of their oline was not in the same spot for two consecutive games at the point. IIRC many of their starters on defense did not play including the starting safety who Was left home because of sickle cell issue at high altitude.
