According to offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, Denver has improved itself in the red zone by spreading the ball around to different receivers instead of just Rod Smith and Patrick Hape. Oh, I miss Patrick Hape. The NFL ranks the Denver offense sixth in red-zone efficiency. DVOA ranks Denver 11th -- but they were horrible in the red zone during the first three weeks. (Mentioning this was one of the reasons that the Denver fans were so angry at me.) DVOA ranks Denver fifth in the red zone during Weeks 4-15.

Denver: great team, or the greatest team? Would you be satisfied with "one of the ten greatest teams?" Plus: hard times in the NFC South, where defense goes to die.
