Tebow packages coming soon?

Last season, the Denver Broncos leading rusher in terms of carries and yards was running back Knowshon Moreno (182 carries for 779 yards and 5 touchdowns, averaging 4.3 yards a carry). The player that scored the most touchdowns on the ground (6) and had the best yards per carry average (5.3) was not Moreno however, or any other running back on Denver’s roster last season. That player was quarterback Tim Tebow. Three games into the 2011 season, the Broncos have rushed 72 times for 228 yards (3.2 yards per carry) and only one score. The team’s leading rusher is power back Willis McGahee who has averaged 2.9 yards a pop. Considering how productive Tebow was last season, fans have been joined by the media in asking Coach John Fox, why has Tebow not been utilized in the red zone? "Without announcing things that would be a competitive disadvantage, we’ve practiced a lot of that [packages with Tebow]", said Fox on Monday. "We scored two touchdowns on Sunday and we needed to score three, all our plays were considered — we need to execute better." Fox went on to note that the team does have special plays designed specifically for Tebow’s skill set, but they just haven’t used them yet. With the team struggling to punch the ball in down towards the goalline, they may decide to use those plays sooner rather than later.
