Tim Tebow has exceeded expectations in Denver this season, winning four of his first five starts and putting Denver in the thick of the AFC West Title race.
But Elway, Denver's Executive VP of Football Operations, remains steadfast in his belief that Tebow is not the answer long-term.

After this season, however, Tebow's future is bleak. Elway and the rest of Broncos' management will almost certainly look to find a long term solution at quarterback in this year's draft.
Here are the most likely candidates to get the starting job in Denver next season.
