Kyle Orton’s 33rd start for the Broncos figures to be his most scrutinized. Denver enters Sunday’s game against San Diego at 1-3 and with a bye in Week 6, there has been speculation that if the team loses again Sunday it might be time to insert Tim Tebow.
But coach John Fox has done his best this week to dismiss that notion. Fox has pointed out that Orton is in just his fourth game in Fox’s system, and he seems willing to give Orton time. Besides, Fox has said several times that Orton won an open competition, and though Orton has made mistakes, he has not been the sole reason for the Broncos' slow start.
