The speculation as to who would take over as Captain in light of Kyle Orton's recent release has ended. RB Willis McGahee has been named captain. McGahee was elected on the basis of the vote taken before the season started and he received the second-most votes. There will surely be speculation as to what McGahee being voted captain over Tebow means, but in light of the process used it makes sense. McGahee has 707 total yards (rushing and receiving) and 4 touchdowns so far this season.
Denver will see Orton and the Chiefs in the final game of the regular season on January 1st, 2012 at Mile High.
