Tim Tebow is going to be Denver's starting quarterback the next time the Broncos take the field -- we all know it, right? The only person who doesn't seem to know it is the one person whose opinion actually matters, Coach John Fox.

Fox insists the decision has not been made, saying he will wait until meeting with his staff and reviewing film on the players' day off Monday before revealing the starting quarterback on Tuesday.

Poll: Should Tim Tebow be the Broncos' starting quarterback?

Fan-favorite Tebow replaced ineffective starter Kyle Orton in the second half of the Broncos' 29-24 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Although his first several drives went nowhere, Tebow eventually led Denver on two scoring drives, reaching the end zone on a 12-yard run of his own and a screen pass that Knowshon Moreno took 28 yards for a touchdown.

Tebow also drove the Broncos 51 yards on their final possession before having a desperation pass batted down in the end zone on the final play.

Overall, he completed four of 10 passes for 79 yards. Obviously those aren't very impressive numbers, but Tebow did give them a chance to win the game. Isn't that what coaches always say they want from their quarterbacks?
