Denver Broncos, Elway and John Fox: We Believe in Tim Tebow

On Monday, NFL Network Insider Michael Lombardi wrote an article stating that the quarterback position was one Denver should target in the Draft, seeing as quarterback Tim Tebow may not be the long term solution.

"Tebow is a man without much support in Denver," wrote Lombardi. "Making quarterback a huge need."

According to Lombardi, all support in the Broncos organization for Tim Tebow left with former Head Coach Josh McDaniels. That could be true, if you don't count Denver's current Head Coach John Fox, Vice President John Elway and Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Lloyd into the equation.

“The thing that’s impressive about Tebow is that he’s not afraid to be great, he has as good intangibles as any athlete I’ve ever been around," said Fox in January. According to reports, if Tebow would have been available in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft last April, Fox and the Panthers probably would have selected him.

"I think he's a very good football player, and if anyone can turn themselves into a great QB, Tim can. Myself and our entire organization think very highly of him," tweeted Broncos Vice President of football operations John Elway. "We were very pleased with his first year as a Bronco and any speculation that the Denver Broncos are considering moving Tim is completely false."

Coming off a Pro Bowl season, Brandon Lloyd is also a Tebow supporter, saying Tebow brings a new dynamic to the offense with his ability to extend plays. Denver's offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has also shown support of Tebow, as well as most of the team's fans.

Both Elway and Fox have said quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow will compete for the team's starting quarterback position. Tebow has the fans, players and coaches behind him, so

don't expect him be going anywhere soon.
