Adopt-a-Bronco:
Tim Tebow
Default Tim Tebow to Peter King phone call

King - "Have you done enough to win the starting job?"

Tebow - "thank God I don't have to make that call, I just went out and tried to play with a lot of heart."

King believes Fox will start Tebow @ Miami.

Thank God.......in deed!

Play Tebow. It won't be all pretty...but, at least we will get to see if he can be our QB of the future. Not, to mention he is fun to watch!

I'll take heart any day. I want someone with a passion to win and I don't mind if they wear that passion on their sleeve.

Given the reps with the #1s, I think Tebow could be alright, numbers wise. I doubt he's ever a 70% completion buy, but I think upper 50's is quite reasonable. And the ability to make big plays makes up most of the difference.

Fox lacks the political capital to start Orton. It's over. It's not even in his hands. The staff and FO have been broken. Tebow is starting, its not their call. He proved it and the fans demand it.

I am excited for the rest of the season now. It will at least be nice to see some effing FIRE in this team.

They looked lifeless through 3 quarters today. Like zombies, especially the O.

Who was the last QB in Denver to be a 70% completion guy? Lets not go overboard here with that stat. Hell even the great Elway wasn't a 60% completion kind of guy.

I think that was the only reason he didn't start Tebow to begin with. He didn't have enough of it to tell the veterans they wanted to go with a young guy who didn't get that crucial off season work and it showed.

That throw to, and catch by Lloyd was one of the best plays of the season by far.

If Fox plays his cards right, he starts Tebow in Miami. He doesn't have to announce it yet.

Looked this up and you're right. Granted it was before the rules started to heavily favor the offense but he didn't hit 60% even in our Super Bowl years.

1 minute ago - by Lee Rasizer - Orton feels he's still starting QB until Fox says otherwise
QB Kyle Orton was asked whether he feels he is still the starter over Tim Tebow. "That's how I approach it until (coach John Fox) tells me differently," he said. Orton added that his 6 of 13, 34-yard first half was largely on him. "I had the interception and just didn't have a whole lot of looks, to be honest with you." Broncos RapidReports

7 minutes ago - by Lee Rasizer - Orton says he'll 'live with it' if Tebow becomes starting QB
QB Kyle Orton said that if Tim Tebow is the starter moving forward, "I live with it." But, Orton added, he has been given no indication of his status moving foward by coach John Fox. "I'm sure at some time we'll talk." Broncos RapidReports

8 minutes ago - by Lee Rasizer - Orton surprised he got the hook at halftime
QB Kyle Orton expressed "a little bit" of surprise that he was replaced at halftime by coach John Fox. "But we didn't do much, and he came in and said he was giong to make a change. He's the head coach." Fox wouldn't make an announcement on his starter moving forward until the staff does a full evaluation. Broncos RapidReports

I was surprised as well. I figured Fox was to stupid to make the change honestly...
