He was unable to deliver on a couple of instances but he was still the 11th hour Samaritan for the Denver Broncos on many instances this season and for that reason the Denver Broncos have announced him as the first choice of quarterback… you must have guessed it alright… yes, Tim Tebow has officially been declared as the No.1 signal caller for the Broncos in 2012.
The Broncos are 8-7 and most of their win can be credited to the stunning comebacks led by Tebow. Despite his unorthodox techniques and throwing style Tebow has gained the hearts of his fans, teammates and at last his coach, John Fox.
An insider on the NFL.com, Jeff Darlington has posted, “the Broncos plan to move forward with the mindset that Tebow will remain the team’s starter in 2012.”
This move may surprise a couple of you out there as the Broncos go out for the AFC West title on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have only won 6 of their 15 games this season, so they aren’t in the best of their forms however they have had a couple of close encounters.
Moreover, quarterback Kyle Orton (or you may call him the nemesis of the Broncos and Tebow) would be looking for vengeance against his former club. Orton made a move from Denver to Kansas this season after Tebow replaced him on the field as a starter due to his dismissive form.
Tebow has posted numerous impressive performances in his absence. As a matter of fact Tebow has posted seven victories and three losses in just 10 starts. Tebow’s presence has also helped the Broncos to lead the NFL in rushing offense.
If the Broncos win on Sunday or if the Raiders lose, Denver would gain access to the post season (playoffs). In case of qualification, the Broncos would enter the playoffs for the first time since 2005.
