Although most people consider Tim Tebow the favorite to start at quarterback for the Broncos this season, the man who will make the final decision insists that there is no favorite.
Broncos coach John Fox told the Denver Post that Tebow, Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn will all get an equal shot to win the job, whenever training camp starts.
“I’ve said it before and I mean it. It’ll be a competition,” Fox said. “Competition is what this game’s about, whether if it’s an opponent or a depth chart. It’s been this way as long as I can remember.”
Fox said he has watched film of every player who’s expected to be on the Broncos’ 2011 roster and likes what he sees, but he’s getting anxious about the inability to get to know his players personally.
“I like the guys on our team right now, but I can’t tell you how much yet. I’ve only spent one day with them,” Fox said. “You find out how much you like them when you get on the field with them. There’s nothing like seeing them with the naked eye.”
And there’s still no way to know when Fox will get to do that.
