This is going to be a very long bye week for Orton fans, Tebow fans and Broncos fans in general.
The whole theory of one quarterback giving Denver the "best chance to win" has been completely obliterated by the play of not only Tim Tebow, but the whole Broncos team when Tebow entered the game.
Tim Tebow still has obvious deficiencies, but are they any more debilitating than the shortcomings of Kyle Orton?
It didn't appear so today and the main statistic that has plagued Kyle Orton (turnovers), did not haunt Tebow in his time against San Diego on Sunday. If anything, the play of Tebow should demand that he be able to at least split time with Orton when practicing with the first-team offense, if not take it over completely.
The battle may not be completely over, but its becoming clear that Kyle Orton is a "practice" quarterback and Tim Tebow is a "game" quarterback. John Fox has known since day one that this was not going to be an easy job, but now it just got a little tougher...or did it?
