Denver coach John Fox did not make it official during his postgame news conference that Tim Tebow would be the Broncos' starting quarterback from this point on. But he likely will make it official Tuesday.
This wasn't bowing to public pressure. This was Fox sticking with Kyle Orton until Orton lost the job. Orton was splendid during the preseason, but he seemed to progressively lose confidence. A sure touchdown pass slipped out of his hands in a 23-20 season-opening loss at home to rival Oakland. A late interception cost the Broncos a chance to win in a 17-14 defeat at Tennessee.
This is just a beat writer's opinion but things certainly look like the team could turn to Tebow after his second half performance last week. Tebow may not end up a great NFL QB, but he has potential to be a pretty good fantasy QB. Because of his running ability and QB draws like the one called in the red zone this past week, he has a chance to be a factor in most of the team's scoring. If you're in QB trouble this year, Tebow may be a guy to got get.
