"We feel Kyle Orton is our starting quarterback," Broncos coach John Fox said.
Fox said coaches did not consider playing backup Tim Tebow in the fourth quarter, when the Packers led by at least 25 points. The team played several backups on defense late in the game, but none on offense.
"We need our starting quarterback to get experience for us to improve. That's the idea behind that. You know he needs to get better in our system," Fox said. "I know he gets judged on the past couple of years, but we're trying to get him better in our system and use that experience to get better."
Tebow would be a much better fantasy option if he ever gets the chance. But that seems like it will be at least a bit away, despite what seems like the entire Denver community being behind Tebow.
