**We'll use this as the early game thread as well.
It's been reported today by Jay Glazer of FoxSports that John Fox has decided to completely revamp the Denver Broncos offense to tailor it to Tim Tebow's strengths in college. If this report is totally true, it is going to be the biggest gamble in recent memory.
" Last week’s game-plan wasn’t tailored in the least to fit Tebow, so the change to a spread formation allowing him to succeed on his instincts and athleticism with screens, swings, downfield strikes and designed quarterback runs is great news for his fantasy value."
In my opinion, it would have been better to have merged both Mike McCoy's current scheme with some of what Tebow has proven he could do well. Part of me thinks this is what happened, since I cannot imagine any team completely throwing out an entire playbook and replacing it with a collegiate one in a single week.
Either way, I hope the results are a Detroit Lion's team that is caught completely off guard and the insanely slow start last week will become a distant memory. The Lion's are riddled with key injuries this week and though they might be the more talented team, the Broncos are healthy and fired up.
This game just got a whole lot more interesting. Go Broncos!
