Tim Tebow fans are united in their joy right now as the rookie quarterback sensation came into the game and scored a touchdown on a five-yard run.

Despite the monster yardage quarterback Kyle Orton has been throwing for, Head Coach Josh McDaniels inserted Tebow near the goal line, and Tebow came through with the five-yard run.

McDaniels experimented with this play in preseason and the first week of the regular season, but Tebow has been pretty much absent ever since.

Now Tebow is back in the limelight again, and Denver Broncos fans couldn't be happier.

This is a good move by McDaniels, as Tebow's success here doesn't threaten Orton's status in any way, yet it adds another dimension to his offense as opposing defensive coordinators are going to have to prepare for Orton and Tebow, a nightmare scenario no head coach or DC wants to have.

Every team dreams of having a dual threat behind center, and now, the Broncos have shown that is possible with the Tebow maneuver.

While the defense can sit there and try and defend against a Tebow run in the future, no one is naive enough to believe Tebow may not fake a run in the future and just chuck the ball into the end zone where there would be an open receiver.

On a lighter note, what do fantasy football owners do now?

Do you pick up Tebow and start him?  Do you keep him in reserve and see which defense the Broncos are facing that week?

Just another fun headache for Tebow fans.
