As the Denver Broncos prepare to finish out the last four games of what has been one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history, it becomes time for one to look past this year and start to focus on what could transpire in the coming months.
In moving toward the presumed inevitable, many speculate that the Broncos should start grooming their rookie quarterback, Tim Tebow, for more action in the final games of the season.
This course of action would be necessary to prepare him for the starting job that he is supposedly going to have at the beginning of the 2011 season.
Yet, if this transpires, what would become of Kyle Orton?
Many suggest that Kyle Orton is the only Broncos player, save Brandon Lloyd, that is worth anything this season. In spite of the year he is having, it has been argued that the Broncos should trade Orton while his stock is high. In doing so, the team would then be able to acquire substantial picks in the upcoming draft.
These draft picks would provide Denver much needed ammo to improve their fledgling defense. This trade would also pave the way for Tim Tebow, a fan favorite of colossal proportions, to become the starting quarterback.
What follows will be an examination of this scenario, which serves as an antecedent to what will dominate Bronco airwaves throughout the remainder of this season and well into next summer. Orton vs. Tebow: because that is what it really boils down to, isn’t it?
