Broncos revamping offense for Tebow?
During Sunday's pregame show, FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer reported that the Broncos are revamping the offense to suit Tim Tebow's strengths.
Details via Rotoworld:
"Fox's is now going all-in on Tebow, acknowledging that the move to more of a Florida Gators look will either revolutionize the game or set it back years. As John Clayton suggested early in the week, the Broncos will put Tebow in the shotgun and "cover their eyes." Last week's game-plan wasn't tailored in the least to fit Tebow, so the change to a spread formation allowing him to succeed on his instincts and athleticism with screens, swings, downfield strikes and designed quarterback runs is great news for his fantasy value. It should boost Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker as well."
That's all well and good (relatively speaking, anyway), but why didn't Fox do this in training camp? Instead, the Broncos chose not to trade Kyle Orton -- even though the Dolphins were interested in his services -- and named him the starter.
And then, five weeks into the season, Orton finally got the hook and Tebow Mania was on like Donkey Kong.
Former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels catches flak (and rightly so) for setting this organization back several years with his personnel decisions, but Fox has looked indecisive and out of sorts so far this season.
Either way, expect a lot more Tebow Sneaks going forward.
