John Fox Says Broncos Decision To Replace Kyle Orton With Tim Tebow Was Right Move

In perhaps the most direct statement about the switch for the Denver Broncos from Kyle Orton to Tim Tebow at starting quarterback, Broncos head coach John Fox came out this week addressing the match-up between the two by saying his team made the right move.

“We made the decision to go with Tim Tebow,” Fox said about today’s Chiefs-Broncos game. “I think that decision has proved worthy. We took that risk whenever you release any player. We don’t have any control over who takes him or where he goes or any of those things, but it’s good for Kyle. I wish him nothing but the best except for this Sunday … I think at the end of the day we feel real comfortable with Tim. We made that decision and here we are.”

Tebow has certainly warranted such commentary from his head coach given that the team has unexpected vaulted to the top of the AFC West standings. Orton, however, will hope to change that today when leading the Chiefs into Denver.
