Default It has to remain Tebow Time in Denver

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest/post...time-in-denver

Has an NFL crowd ever departed a stadium this pleased after seeing the home team fall to 1-4?

Thatís the power of Tebow.

The Denver crowd departed the stadium on Sunday chanting the name of second-year Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow despite the fact that the Broncos lost 29-24 to the Chargers. The crowd was so fired up that Tebow was finally inserted in place of the struggling Kyle Orton, the reality of another loss didnít matter.

What mattered is the Broncos finally gave Tebow a chance. Thatís all the fans in Denver wanted. Now that Denver coach John Fox has gone to Tebow, there is no chance that the Broncos can or will go back.

Expect Fox to continue to say that he will evaluate the quarterback situation during the bye week. Really, however, there is nothing to evaluate. Tebow gave the Broncos a spark Sunday that Orton has not ó and Denver is now 6-22 in Ortonís past 28 starts.

As he has done all season, Fox said going into the San Diego game that Orton represented the teamís best chance to win. Both Orton and Tebow proved otherwise Sunday.

Orton was pulled after halftime. He completed 6 of 13 passes for 34 yards with an interception. The Broncos trailed 23-10 at the half and the offense was stagnant.

Just as he did in the final three games of his rookie season, Tebow ignited the Broncos and the offense moved the ball with him at the helm. Tebow rallied the Broncos late with a running touchdown and a passing touchdown.

On the gameís final play, from the San Diego 30, Tebow was at his scrambling best in avoiding would-be sackers, though his final pass fell incomplete in the end zone. And though Tebow didnít complete the comeback, he did bring life to an offense that badly needed a boost.

Tebow might not be polished and he is a work in progress. But he brings excitement and hope to excitement- and hope-starved Denver.

With Denver essentially a non-factor in the AFC West at the bye, keeping Tebow at quarterback is the only choice. It is time to see if Tebow can prove he is ready to be a starting NFL quarterback. If he is, the franchise can make strides. If not, the Broncos will know that Tebow is not the answer and can find their quarterback of the future in the offseason. For the rest of the 2011 season, however, the only answer is sticking with Tebow.

Yep, it is time for Tebow to get a shot. I think Orton has been given enough time and he just isn't the answer. There will be more interest in what happens with the Broncos with Tebow at QB than there ever would be if they keep Orton as the starter.

There would be an actual riot if Orton started another game. I'm not saying there should be. But there should be.

Yes, and this means that us out-of-staters will have a chance to see Tebow on non-dish games this season.

I'm surprised this is even an issue. Well, OK, maybe not too surprised, but really, let's give Fox some credit. He will start Tebow in 2 weeks, no about it.

He's doing what he should be doing; and that's putting just enough doubt into Miami's coaching staff to make them prepare for both QB's, just in case. But Tebow will start, make no mistake about it, he will.

I would not bet on anything with this front office. There has never been a doubt in my mind who should be starting at QB, Just time for EFX to figure it out.
