"Broncos fans to John Fox: Play Tebow."
-Sign purchased by Denver Broncos' fans.
Kyle Orton is a serviceable NFL quarterback. He has taken the Chicago Bears to the playoffs, and was once a Top 10 passer for these very Broncos. To chant "we want Tebow" before the season started was a disgrace. To purchase a sign in Denver imploring John Fox to play him is something different. I am just not sure what.
Yes, you cannot argue with results and I am certainly not a Tebow hater. At the start of the year, I said the Broncos have to go with Orton until the season seems lost, and the Broncos followed suit.
When you have a veteran-laden roster, the logical thing is to start the veteran quarterback over the raw 24-year-old with the funky delivery. Of course when it comes to Tim Tebow, nothing is logical.
Still, a veteran quarterback who has seen success did not deserve to be booed out of town, no matter who his backup is.
