“As far as I’m concerned, he’s under contract and he’s the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos,” Fox said of Orton, according to multiple reporters passing along his comments on Twitter. “Kyle Orton is our starter.”

Orton is the kind of QB a defensive coach likes. That being said, it seems Fox hasn't finished watching all of this years game tape. He will change his mind when he gets to the last few games and sees that Tebow clearly out played Orton even though he was a rookie getting backup reps.

Really though, nothing they say right now means much. They could be looking to trade Orton. You don't get max value by saying he was clearly beat by an unpolished rookie and won't play for you again.

We'll see what happens when they have a new CBA in place.

Orton is closer to Delhomme than Tebow is. I could see Fox--for the purpose of a February depth chart--say this. As someone already said, talk to me in September after a legitimate qb competition takes place.

Fox is in for a rude awakening if Orton is still the starter for the home opener. Wouldn't it be epic if that game was against the Bears (thy're on the schedule)?

It could be a sweet dream (Tebow) or a beautiful nightmare (Orton)...you pick, Fox.

Not a shocker at all, Orton is the vet and is under contract and is getting a fat paycheck. Like other's have noted, this doesn't mean much in February...

! Yeah right. Apparently Fox missed the fact that the Broncos marketing department has been slamming Tebow's face on everything, including the season ticket renewal materials. Orton is going to have the heat turned up on him in the preseason, and under that hot a light, he just doesn't perform so well. Tebow, on the other hand, doesn't seem to mind the spotlight.

It's probably the right thing to do to "announce" at this point, but like water will find a way to it's lowest point, Tebow will find a way into the QB starting position. It's just the natural order of things.

Yeah it's way to early to get upset but I just want to see what we have in Tebow. If the kid is the real deal we are set if not play him the entire season and the worst thing that could happen is we are in a position to get luck. Orton the best thing that could happen is 4 to 8 wins. I won't mind a lock out if Orton does start....no interest to watching him play.....phantom fetal position sacks rule!!!!

It really is quite simple. Orton is the veteran incumbent and a good player. There needs to be open competition to insure the smoothest of transitions.

This is clearly being done for trade reasons, no point in declaring orton a backup and worthy of less trade compensation when the whole nfl world knows he is as good as gone. Tebow will be the starter next season orton will be far away from denver. Just remember what all the talk was when fox was being hired and look at the media material, I.e. the stuff that sells the tickets

i call bull****. smokescreen to keep his trade value up in the hopes that a CBA is worked out prior to the draft, and also to keep him from getting pissed off if the team can't unload him prior to next season.

Of course he is. Why do people think that since Tebow replaced an injured Orton for a few games that he's all of a sudden passed him on the depth chart?

I'm personally hoping they can swing a KO trade before camp but if not, it then it wouldn't surprise me in the least to see Orton remain the starter. That's what you get when you hire an older, conservative, defensive minded coach.
