According to an article this afternoon from Lindsay H. Jones of the Denver Post, Broncos head coach John Fox announced that the beleaguered Tim Tebow will start next week against the Oakland Raiders.

She reported that Fox said, "He's a young quarterback, we're getting to know him better and he's getting to know the offense, with each one of those snaps." Fox went on to say "I think at the end of the day, we have to see if he can improve and get better in the passing game."

Not exactly a ringing endorsement for Mr. Tebow, but at least he has one more week to show the Johns, Elway and Fox , whether or not he will be next year's starting QB. But my feel is he will have at least two to three more games before the hook goes out.

Maybe that sign in the above picture is backwards: Tebow might not yet be ready for the NFL.


Fun days ahead. Stay tuned.
