Or possibly an indicator that the o-line was set up more for a passing offense under Orton and more for an option offense under Tebow which lends support to the idea that the offenses Tebow and Orton ran were different.
Also, I could be wrong, but don't QBs in option offenses take more hits and more sacks because of the nature of option offenses.
