In today's Monday Morning Quarterback on Sports Illustrated's web site, King takes a shot at regime change in Denver, ala Pat Bowlen, by ranking the Broncos 20th amongst 32 NFL franchises. 

"For years," writes King in his capsule that justifies Denver's low ranking, "Broncos fans had to sit back and just trust Mike Shanahan, because some of those weird Maurice Clarett-ish decisions he made were so counter-intuitive. So now Pat Bowlen hires boy wonder Josh McDaniels, and the Broncos fans have to think the same thing all over again."

Yes, there's some truth in what Kings says.   

But the bigger truth is that Denver fans have a lot of patience. 

The honeymoon with McDaniels will last longer than King thinks.

It'll probably just make it past the 3:32 mark in the third quarter of the third preseason game.
