Should Tim Tebow be the Denver Broncos' starting QB? [Poll]

September 13, 2011 |  9:26 am


This could be a long season for Kyle Orton. Not only was the Denver Broncos quarterback largely ineffective in a 23-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Monday night, but he also had to endure the home fans chanting the name of the man who is quite possibly the team's third-string quarterback -- Tim Tebow.

Orton has put up some solid numbers in his two seasons as the Broncos' starter, with 41 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. But Tebow was a beloved figure at the Unviersity of Florida, where he won a Heisman Trophy and two BCS titles. And Broncos fans appear ready for change after a 4-12 season a year ago.

Who do you think should be the Broncos' starting quarterback: Orton, Tebow or forgotten man Brady Quinn, the former Cleveland Brown who is listed with Tebow as the No. 2 QB on Denver's depth chart? Vote, then leave a comment to explain yourself.
