Team sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen before Sunday's overtime win that if Tim Tebow continues to show improvement and leads the Broncos to the playoffs, the franchise is likely to commit to him as its starting quarterback in 2012 and not automatically use a first-round draft pick on another quarterback.
"You can't call it fait accompli but it's quite a turnaround from where we were a month or two ago," one team source told Mortensen.
While no longer characterizing Tebow's job status as a week-to-week proposition, Fox isn't publicly going all in, either.
"A lot is made of the quarterback position. It's really hard to sit here and answer. We don't talk about the middle linebacker or the left corner position," Fox said. "I think, right now, just enjoy the moment. It's a team game, and we're doing well as a team. I don't like speaking too much of the future. I'm happy for each day."
