Josh McDaniels won't change his Tim Tebow plan

And on the first day, Tim Tebow rushed two times for two yards.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said that Tebow may have played more snaps if the plays gained more yards, but in general he’s not planning to change his approach.  Kyle Orton stayed on the field as a wide receiver in the snaps Tebow was in.

“I don’t think I have any desire to do that with Kyle coming off the field, coming on the field, coming off,” McDaniels said. “I don’t think that’s really something that we’re looking to do much of. Like I said yesterday after the game, I think our quarterback played pretty well.”

Orton did play very well until a late interception, averaging nearly nine yards-per-attempt.  Orton says he’s fine with the Tebow usage.

“This stuff made of the rhythm, you can put me in the stands for a play and I’d come back and be fine with the rhythm,” Orton said

By the sound of it, Orton can expect to stay behind center nearly every snap.

    Honestly, I would take orton in philly over kolb. Thats how little confidence I have in him. Orton is a solid qb and if mcdaniels is dumb enough to keep tebow instead like reid is dumb enough to trade mcnabb, then I’ll gladly give orton a chance.

    I expect more lightning delays if Tebow’s snaps don’t increase. What God wants, God gets.

    WHO CARES?
    Get over your obsession with Tim Tebow. He is the backup for a reason and the amount of coverage you give this Jesus freak is insanity.

    Does McDaniels have a Tebow plan to change?

  5. merrillhodgestoupee says: Sep 14, 2010 11:13 AM

    Jesus hasn’t given Josh the memo yet.
    Just wait it will happen.

    Listen: anyone that watched my Donks on sunday would instantly recognize that McD is in over his head. I have been in denial for some time, but it is now quite obvious.
    He doesn’t “coach” anybody–he simply yells and curses when things go badly. I’ve worked for people like that and ultimately, what ends up happening, those subjected to such treatment perform (generally) worse. Lots of studies support this.
    Also: he has got to be one of the worst play-callers in the league.
    Lastly: if we are 0-3 or 0-4, he better put Tebow in to learn the ins/outs of the system or he may get canned this year. That isn’t to say the season will go better but he has to learn sometime.

    Tebow is a bust… just like sanchez and linheart.
    but nobody will ever mention it i n the media.
    but ofcourse they will mention jamarcus russell just because the raiders took him.
    ESPN AND PFT AND ALL MEDIA HATES THE RAIDERS..

    Don’t worry McDaniels, despite media pressure eventually you will work through your “plan” and ask Tim out to a nice dinner and possibly a movie.

  9. Bun McSticky says: Sep 14, 2010 11:34 AM

    Jesus is ok with this for now, but he’s expecting more playing time for Mini-Me come October.

  10. BobsCountryBunker says: Sep 14, 2010 11:34 AM

    Couldn’t he just part the defense and walk into the endzone???

  11. Xpensive Wino says: Sep 14, 2010 11:36 AM

    The real question is, what is the Broncos new head coach next year going to do with Tebow?

  12. evilzorac says: Sep 14, 2010 11:38 AM

    McDaniels would have been much better served using that pick for an offensive lineman but at least Teblow can perform all the circumcisions for his family free!

  13. magsdad1 says: Sep 14, 2010 11:41 AM

    Tebow didn’t go in for Orton. They were both on the field for the plays. Please report accurately.
    That said, there needs to be significant progress in this team or the vultures are going to start licking their chops. I am Broncos fan, but if Seattle is anything close to what they were last weekend, then an 0-5 or 0-6 start is very possible, even expected.
    I think McDaniels does know what he is doing, and the players he yelled at last weekend DESERVED to be yelled at. Two PF Facemasks on consecutive plays by the same player? Give me a break. These were all boneheaded plays.
    The DC however? Hmmm, that’s a different story.
    They don’t miss Scheffler.
    They don’t miss Marshall.
    They don’t miss Cutler.
    They miss Shanahan.

    Anybody else think that “Josh McDaniels’ plan” is an oxymoron?

  15. BDiddy says: Sep 14, 2010 11:49 AM

    Tebow is extremely blessed.

  16. jkmcooper says: Sep 14, 2010 11:58 AM

    You people making judgements about how bad or good the broncos are after one game need to wake the hell up. Its one game! Big Whoop Tebow played two downs oh my ! Who cares just because its Tebow PFT looking for hits on their site this story was done two days ago on the denver post. And I’m not religous what so ever but all these Tebow and God references got old after the draft, do a story on the guy when he actually does something.

    Boy the Jags sure are looking dumb now, aren’t they…?
    Aren’t they?

  18. blackhawk says: Sep 14, 2010 12:28 PM

    The Broncos don’t miss Shanahan they miss John Elway. They won two Super Bowls with him as their leader and haven’t done much since he retired.

  19. robert ethen says: Sep 14, 2010 12:32 PM

    Tebow only managed a 1 yard average running, but two other first round rookie running backs, Spiller and Best, averaged 0.9 and 1.4 ypc in their first games. Those two averaged around 2 yards per pass caught as well. Give it time.

    thank god for josh mcdaniels…I love this guy.

    Great line. Love it.

    How can you say Sanchez is a bust after one year and Tebow is a bust after 2 regular season plays? I understand that you can probably recognize busts considering you’re a fan of the Raiders, but come on. IF Tebow turns into a bust, it’ll be covered by the media more than any other player in history. The Raiders get so much negative press BECAUSE THEY SUCK AND HAVE SUCKED FOR A LONG FREAKING TIME. Lastly, how can you consider week 1 a fluke when those losers have been performing like that for almost a decade now? A DECADE! That’s 10 years (figured I’d better clear that up for you since they don’t teach you anything in prison). Can we hurry up and get to week 5 already so the fans of the 0-5 Raiders will go back into their closets where they’ll reside until next off season.

    Someone get a hold of NASA…. Tim Tebow is NOT ready to start in the NFL!

  24. rarson says: Sep 14, 2010 5:55 PM

    I stated that Tebow sucks in a… colorful manner, and my post was deleted. Cool. Guess the site moderators are a bunch of girls.
    Orton’s not stellar, but at least he’s decent, whereas Tebow just sucks.

    “How can you say Sanchez is a bust after one year and Tebow is a bust after 2 regular season plays?”
    Normally I don’t rush to judgment, but in this case I totally agree with those statements. Tebow was a bust before he ever got to the NFL, and Sanchez really sucks. Even if he manages to improve significantly, he’ll never be a Super Bowl quarterback. He’s another Brady Quinn.
    Then again, Trent Dilfer made it to the Super Bowl and even won, but he was surrounded by a freaking amazing team.

    It’s the race card Jack Ass they only talk about russell because he is black. Oh wait 95 % of the league is black maybe it’s not about race he just really sucks.

  27. Hap says: Sep 17, 2010 4:24 PM

    It really sounds like there are a lot of people that want TT to fail. Why? Because he has a clean image? The NFL needs more clean imagery.
