Last year the Denver Broncos went out on a limb and drafted Tim Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, when many "draft experts" had him rated between the mid second to third round.
Denver made a gamble and it paid off in jersey sales.
Then at the end of the season Kyle Orton got hurt and then benched and Tebow came in and made a spark and got the fans excited.
The writing was on the wall that Orton would be shipped out of Denver and the Tebow era would begin.
Funny thing happened though, Orton wasn't shipped out and the Tebow era never got off the ground and has stalled at the second string quarterback spot.
Now Tebow doesn't come off as the type of guy who would demand a trade out of Denver but it would appear that new head coach John Fox doesn't trust Tebow to run the offense either.
So what do the Broncos do?
Well first off they've got a mess on their hands. They're stuck with a quarterback they were suppose to trade but couldn't pull the trigger and now he's once again their starter, and oh yeah his contract expires at the end of the season. If I'm Orton I'm making the Broncos pay a ton to keep me.
Then they've got their second year quarterback who was all set to start, his receivers were all set for him to start, and the fans were all set for him to start, except he won't be starting now.
Tebow tried to put on a brave face but he even said that he felt like the starting job was snatched from him.
Like Kolb and Vick last season I don't think the Broncos can continue to carry both QBs on their roster.
One will have to go and honestly I think it's Tebow.
The Broncos want to win and Kyle Orton gives them the best chance mostly because Tebow still needs a few more season to work on being an NFL quarterback.
Odds of this trade happening? As of now I'd say it's an even 50/50, if Kyle Orton signs an extension I'm going with 100%.
