08:00 AM ET 11.09 | Tim Tebow, you may have heard, had a little success in college while running the option. The Broncos broke out their own edition of read option, using Tebow as a front-line ballcarrier or offering the threat of him as a front-line ballcarrier just before he handed the ball to running back Willis McGahee. In a game in which Tebow completed only 10-of-21 passes, the Broncos still ran for almost 300 yards. ... Now comes the next step for the Broncos, the decision whether to do something few, if any, NFL teams have done with their most prized roster possession through the years -- put their starting quarterback in a full-time option offense. "We'll see," Broncos wide receiver Eddie Royal said.

Nice. Not like he is going against Division II schools early in the season anymore. Good luck with that!

I'm pulling for him, I think he's making the Broncos exciting. If nothing else THAT team is in the news for the right reasons and that is better than what Orton did.

"using Tebow as a front-line ballcarrier or offering the threat of him as a front-line ballcarrier". See- John Elway- "we want to get him killed so we can move on while saving face."

Indeed, and with that plan he should be on IR soon

Why not?

Hell - everyone's running bastardized versions of the spread.

Give it a try.

Hope it works, as Denver is running out of options.

I don't feed into these characters in FN, but IF I did...

I would tell you, Count struck me as a person just wanted to chat and talk a little bit around here, and I think he appreciated your friendship.

Of course they will. They have no other choice until they can come up with a franchise type QB.

Exactly. And if he's the team's best option -- and he IS, then a smart coach -- or John Fox -- would be wise to adapt the game plan around his strengths, instead of the other way around.
