What a difference a win makes - last week's mood in the Broncos locker room was near catatonic. A 37-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals changed that in a hurry - Friday's mood was confident, optimistic - and even a bit lighthearted. Between mouthfull of Skoal, Gerard Warren and Stephan Alexander joked with teammates and grooved to the soulful sounds echoing through the teams' sound system.

Main topics of discussion - How many of the coaches besides Mike Shanahan were forced to spend the night at Dove Valley due to weather - and how cool it's going to be to have Allen Iverson playing with the Nuggets. For Al Wilson, the thought of watching Iverson from his courtside seats almost took precident over his nomination to this year's Pro Bowl squad.

With the blizzard taking a break, Shanahan moved the Broncos practice session back outdoors - "We have had a good week of preparation. I think guys worked through it yesterday. It wasn't perfect conditions, but we had some great effort and got a lot done. We had a great practice today. You can see they are having fun."
