Tim Tebow tackles role as Broncos starting quarterback
October 11, 2011
Denver — Tim Tebow, newly anointed Denver Broncos starting quarterback, talked Tuesday about handling expectations and what he and the Broncos offense need to accomplish before facing the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 23.
“I’m just very honored to get this opportunity,” Tebow said Tuesday afternoon from the team’s headquarters at Dove Valley. “I’m very excited. I’m just blessed to be a Denver Bronco, and to go out there and play for this organization is truly a privilege.”
Coaches informed the quarterbacks of the decision to go with Tebow after the players arrived at Dove Valley Tuesday morning.
“I’m just disappointed with everything,” demoted quarterback Kyle Orton said at his locker after his first practice as a backup. “I wish I could have played better, wish we had a better record, wish a lot of things. But the reality is what it is.”
Orton said he would continue to be a good teammate to Tebow moving forward.
