Nomar...two-three months ago, I was in agreement with you. I'm an Orton fan, but would have had no problem with that trade to Miami. But Tebow then stunk it up for three weeks in the pre-season, not even solidfying his status as the backup. It's not as if Tebow is just an unseasoned kid...there's a lot of concern as to whether or not he'll ever be good enough. With a guys like Newton, Bradford, Stafford, etc., it's only been a question of when, not if.
Fox is trying to not only turn the team around but create a new atmosphere and attitude in Denver. You don't create a positive and renewed atmosphere in your clubhouse by benching your team's best chance to win and throwing out a guy who's looked terrible lately. That sends the message to your players that, as a coach, you're not doing all you can to win each week, which is a bad message to send. You field the team that gives you the best chance to win each week, period.
