07:44 AM ET 09.14 | Kyle Orton, for now, will not stray far enough to keep his shadow from Tim Tebow. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said today that, barring injury, Orton will stay on the field even in packages where Tebow, the dual-threat rookie out of Florida, would be lined up at quarterback. "I don't think I have any desire to do that, with Kyle -- coming off the field, coming on the field, coming off," McDaniels said. "I don't think that's really something that we're looking to do much of." Orton played every offensive snap in the Broncos' 24-17 Week 1 loss to Jacksonville Sunday. Tebow rushed the ball twice for two yards, and also lined up at receiver as a decoy on occasion.

The Tebow show? Is this a reality series?

You're messing with rhythm and it's going to fail.

There's obviously a problem if McDaniels even felt the need to have this conversation. Guess he's afraid Orton will get his panties in a bunch if he's pulled while Tebow carries the ball.

I still have them finishing last in the division anyway.

From your lips to God's ear. Or your lips to Tebow's ear to God's ear. I hear they talk daily.

He's taking a big gamble, that's for sure.

Josh, go ahead and stop doing anything that might confuse the defense. And why bring in Tebow even if it might present a better fit to what is needed for that play. I wonder is Staubach and Morton complained to Coach Landry that they COULDN'T sub out every other play? Sounds like a real nice team attitude in Denver.

If you look closely, you can see that the ship is sinking faster than the Titanic...

this ain't Fla and hopefully, when Orton does well, Tebow won't take away his glory like he did Chris Leake! SMH...

But...hot babes from Mexican TV come to the field to interview him. That must count for something, right?

The Patriots are smelling the raw meat already.

Two carries for two yards......with the media love for this guy, he's well on his way to "rookie of the year"

You think that after all of the off season hubbub surrounding the J-E-T-S, Little Bill is sitting in the film room with a little smile on his face, DD?

You have to admire how Tebow made the sky open up and rain and lightening to announce his debut Sunday.

There should be some Jet officials waiting outside Woody's door trying to explain one more time how they do not need Thomas Jones or Faneca.

Had to like the Jets punt offense though.

Kyle in case you can't read between the lines. the coach is saying, first we give Tim a few snaps - oh you get to be there too, then as soon as your pistol misfires, you get a few snaps and he takes over.
They can't wait for the Tim Tebow era to begin. Orton never was there guy, only Orton doesn't know that yet.
