Tim Tebow stepped in for the last three games of the season and performed quite admirably, throwing for 654 yards, 5 passing touchdowns, 3 picks and 6 rushing touchdowns for the season, which led to an 82.1 passer rating. The biggest downside to those numbers is he only completed a paltry 50% of his pass attempts.
Kyle Orton on the other hand, started each of the first 13 games, going for 3653 yards, 20 TD, 9 INT, with an 87.5 passer rating. He also led the team to a 3-10 record.
Many don’t see Orton as the future quarterback of the Broncos, which is why people tend to question John Fox’s statement. It appears that Fox doesn’t believe Tebow has impressed enough to start.
However, I’m here to tell you that John Fox declaring Orton as their starter is a good thing for the Broncos AND Tim Tebow.
Tebow has faced much criticism in the past for various different things, and he’s responded well with a Heisman and a National Championship.
So what’s a little more criticism/motivation or whatever you want to call it? Tebow believes he is going to the top. He also realizes he has to work very hard to get there, and this is only going to push him harder.
With all the rumors swirling around Orton trade-wise, and after his benching late last year, how sure are we that Orton even wants to be in Denver?
In the end, Tebow is going to come into training camp firing on all cylinders, determined to get that starting job and prove he is the future of the franchise.
