They say the most popular sports figure in a city is often the backup quarterback. That’s even more the case when your second string QB is Tim Tebow, a first-round pick out of Florida who was one of the most popular college players of all time.
Tebow has served as the backup quarterback for the Broncos but he’s only attempted one pass all season. Kyle Orton has started all 13 of Denver’s games, completing 58% of his passes for 3,653 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. The numbers look pretty but the team’s win-loss total doesn’t; Denver is 3-10 and has lost three in a row. They’ve already fired their coach and the season is already over so the fans are demanding a change.
