Tebow Is "The Man" In Denver

[KUSA-TV, AP, Denver Post]

There has been a western expansion of Tebowmania but the orange and blue colors remain the same.

Tebow has been named the Broncos starting quarterback for the last two regular season games. Tebow has only thrown for 138 yards however he did make plays with his legs last week against the Oakland Raiders.

Tebow survived taking shots in the SEC but the NFL is much more violent.

"You can talk to him about things like that but those instincts are just in him," Interim Broncos head coach Eric Studesville said. "Hopefully we can keep him healthy as long as possible doing those things because we know the violence of this game. But he plays this game how it's supposed to be played and some of that is him getting bounced around out there."

"I try to be smart in every situation. But sometimes my competitive nature can get the better part of me,"
Tebow said "I'll try to be even smarter to make good decisions with my body."

As for the Bronco incumbent starter Kyle Orton, let's just say he's not happy. The reason why Tebow started last week against the Raiders was that Orton injured his ribs. Now Orton is fine but he will be holding a clipboard on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

"It wasn't my decision." Orton told the Denver Post. "There was nothing I could do. . . . The way it was presented to me was he'll be the starter the rest of the season and that's just how it goes."
