It seems quite likely that Broncos QB Tim Tebow has played his way into a starting job, but if that’s the case, it won’t become official before Tuesday. “I’d say there is a strong likelihood that we will address that tomorrow,” said coach John Fox on Monday, explaining no announcement will be forthcoming until he talks to his players, including Tebow and incumbent QB Kyle Orton.
The team is off today as the Broncos enter their bye week at 1-4. But with an extra week to prepare Tebow, a 2010 first-rounder selected by previous coach Josh McDaniels, the timing is logical for a switch. It was telling that Fox didn’t offer the steadfast support that he’s typically afforded Orton all season, though he said no decision has yet been made on who the starter is moving forward.
