Denver Broncos: Why Tim Tebow Isn't What John Elway and John Fox Wants

After watching Tim Tebow's performance in the final three games of the 2010 season, I have had little doubt that he could make it as a QB on a team that was willing to build their offense around his strengths. At the very least I thought he showed enough potential to get a shot as a starting QB for a Broncos team that was in total rebuilding mode.

Since the new front office took over it has been QB insanity in Denver. The Orton or Tebow debate is not one that I want to get into in this article.

What I do want to get into is that I don't think Tim Tebow will ever fit what the current front office wants in its franchise QB. But they love his ability to sell tickets and jerseys, which is why they pretended for so long that he was going to be the starter.

It's not that they really like Orton either, they tried to trade him the minute the lockout was lifted. What they do like about Orton is that he gives the front office a quiet locker room and a chance to suck for Luck without unrest. Heck, the veteran players themselves wanted Orton to start.

here are a couple of good articles from the Denver Post from the start of the preseason that addresses my point.
