Tim Tebow has been named the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos by head coach John Fox during a team meeting this morning, officially putting to an end - at least for now - the Kyle Orton-era of Denver Broncos football.
The Broncos are heading into their BYE week this Sunday, and will have plenty of time to prepare for their trip to Miami next Sunday. Ironically, the Dolphins are hosting a 2009 Florida Gators Reunion that day meaning there will likely be plenty of #15 jerseys in the stands.
On the field, Tebow gets the chance to take ownership of the job many feel he has deserved all along. He has 11 games to prove to John Elway, Brian Xanders and John Fox that he is the present and future of the Denver Broncos.
It won't be easy - the Broncos have games against the Detroit Lions(5-0), New York Jets, New England Patriots, Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills - beyond two games with the Kansas City Chiefs, and road games against the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers.
We'll talk about that later. For now, it is Tebow Time!
