All the new hires on Denver's staff supposedly told Tim Tebow before the lockout that he would be the Broncos' starter and that he should prepare as such. While that was a mistake if it indeed occurred, John Fox is doing a disservice to others in the Broncos brass by sticking with Kyle Orton.
It's not suggesting that Fox still has Orton as his starting quarterback to spite Tebow and the fans that want him playing as more than a wide receiver, but it could be potentially dangerous. By hitching his wagon to the horsepower-less right arm of Orton, Fox has less room for mistakes.
Orton doesn't appear to be the future quarterback of this team, so it would be wasting time by possibly playing Tebow next season if in fact Tebow is as bad as perceived by the front office.
