We all know John Fox knows who his starter his.
We all know that Tim Tebow is sitting on the bench.
We all know that Brady Quinn is the next man up.
What we don't know is if Kyle Orton will get his job done in 2011.
This is his week to prove himself to everyone in the league that doubts his abilities.
Against a team with national, rather world-wide recognition, Orton has his best chance of the season—and his career—to make a statement.
The Broncos will look to their leader and team captain to control the pace of the game against Green Bay. Denver is aware that they're not the favorites this week, but does that really matter to them?
Last week, after a difficult loss to the Tennessee Titans, the Broncos locker room was silent. The silence spoke loudly to spectators as a tough reaction to a dismal loss.
The Broncos are competitors, like any other team, and never walk on the field expecting to lose.
Orton will need to be the leader of the pack on Sunday and bring his team into Lambeau with enough energy to bring down the house.
Trust me, Orton might not care about what the fans and Tebowmaniacs think, but he certainly cares—and relies on— the feelings of his team-mates.
He's already won over his locker room, but he'll need to bring a certain energy to this week's game if he plans on keeping them on his side.
