Broncos coach John Fox seems to like certainty from his quarterbacks. Kyle Orton provides that.
While Tim Tebow showed promise on Thursday night, Fox made it clear sometimes the plays didn’t go as planned.
“Quarterbacking-wise, I thought Kyle was sharp and I thought Tim is a work in progress,” Fox said. “[Tebow] made some things happen. He’s learning, and I thought Brady [Quinn] stepped in and did a decent job, scored some points to take the lead.”
Quinn had the best numbers, like he did in the team’s recent scrimmage. Those numbers again came against third teamers, but we were impressed by Quinn’s accuracy. Fox did seem intrigued by Tebow’s playmaking.
“His M.O. when I got here was he does like to ad lib some,” Fox said. “You don’t ever want to take that away from a player.”
