Of Course Tebow Is The Denver Starter


Did anybody actually think that the Denver Broncos would come out and say that Tim Tebow wasn't the team's starting quarterback heading into the 2012 training camp? Listen, the last time I checked the Broncos didn't have another quarterback signed on their roster that could compete with Tebow. That isn't saying that the Broncos won't sign another quarterback by the time training camp rolls around, but right now, Tebow is the guy.

The Broncos backup quarterback Brady Quinn is a unrestricted free-agent and his future with Denver is uncertain. He most likely will not be on the team's roster in 2012, but it is too early to make assumptions at this point.

Tebow certainly earned the right to be the team's top quarterback after he took a 1-4 team and turned them into a playoff team. Not only did the Broncos reach the playoffs, but they knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers in a game that nobody thought Tebow could win.

Denver looked like a different team with Tebow leading the way. Probably because they did reshape the offense to fit Tebow's option style of play. Let's face it, Tebow wasn't the most accurate passer this season, but he was able to find a way to win. It's hard to find another quarterback in the league that played with more passion and heart than Tebow. It is what makes him a winner and what makes him a player that team's love to have on their side. It's why Tebow kept the starting job for the remainder of the season.

Having already known that Tebow is not one to shy away from putting the work in, it should be a fair assumption that the former University of Florida star will improve this offseason. It will definitely be interesting to see if the team makes any drastic offseason moves by bringing in legit competition for Tebow. Even though the Broncos brass stands behind Tebow right now, we will know real quick by the moves the team does make. So even though Tebow has earned the right to be the top quarterback in Denver right now, a lot can change before the 2012 season.
