John Fox reiterated in a press conference at the Scouting Combine today that he wants to bring in two new quarterbacks. But he insisted that he doesn’t lack confidence in Tim Tebow.
“At the end of the day, we’re very comfortable with Tim,” Fox said. “He did turn us from a 4-12 team to a playoff team.”
Fox says his comments about bringing in a couple of new quarterbacks were more about the reality of the roster than about doubting that Tebow can get the job done.
“Typically we go to camp with four quarterbacks,” Fox said. “If you do the math, we have two, so that means we need two more. That can come from a lot of varieties of areas. All we’re trying to do is find the best human talent we can that we think fits what we believe to be a championship football team with the Denver Broncos.”
Fox also said there are no hard feelings with Brady Quinn, who questioned Tebow’s humility but later said his comments had been misunderstood. Fox seems to believe Quinn’s clarifications of his comments this week.
“I know their relationship,” Fox said. “I know [Quinn] was a great teammate and I know Tim knows that. We still like Brady Quinn.”
And Fox still likes Tebow, too.
