08:02 AM ET 08.09 | Tim Tebow certainly comes from a different angle. Hey, Broncomaniacs. Did you get the message? Kyle Orton is glad you aren't picking the team's starting quarterback. "My last goal playing quarterback is to win over the fans," Orton said Monday. "That's my last goal." Orton is a solid NFL quarterback. ... But telling fans in a sports crazy town they don't count for much? Not a wise move. In this quarterback competition, touchdown passes and interceptions won't be all that's thrown. There's going to be some mudslinging. Knowing the people want [Tebow], Orton must trust and pray the race for the No. 1 quarterback in Denver will be a football competition rather than a popularity contest. "Thank God," Orton said, "the people don't make the decisions."

I refuse to comment on another Tim Tebow thread ever after this post.

Standard and Poor's is looking into downgrading Tebow if he doesn't do well this season.

August 9, 2011  08:18 AM ET

But before I go, let me say this....

It would be much more likely for Tebow to win Govenor of FL, instead of winning a starting QB gig.

You're welcome Tim.

I thought you'd put it down at the other end of the target range for inspiration.
