No matter how flawed his throwing motion or how many holes he has in his game, Tim Tebow saved the Denver Broncos last year as their starting QB.

Tebow's 46.5 completion percentage would have been much more of a problem if he had not covered it up with his 660 rushing yards and limited turnovers.

Instead, the worries over completion percentage were thrown away as Tebow led Denver to seven wins and four losses, plus a playoff win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With his success, Tebow has to believe that he can be more than just a backup/Wildcat player in the league.

That is, especially after his new head coach Rex Ryan had the following to say at the NFL owners meetings.


Trust me, I don't think DBs want to tackle [Tebow]. It's really a unique skill set ... That system, the Wildcat, he's the perfect guy, not to mention I think he's a guy that's ascending as a passer.

He's not just a backup player. He’s a backup quarterback, but there’s things he’s going to do. Is he going to be our starting quarterback in the Wildcat? Absolutely.

I think the Wildcat is alive and well.

Under new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, a coordinator who brought the Wildcat to Miami, it's only a matter of time before Tebow takes over as the starter.

Here are five more players who will emerge as starters this season.
